Salty Bay Salt Guard

October 8, 2021
Salty Bay Salt Guard

When you are fishing or boating, there’s one thing that is for sure. Salt is going to get into your gear and cause havoc to expensive fishing rods, reels, boat engines, fittings, trailers, you name it. Here’s a great new product to the NZ market, developed and formulated here in New Zealand by Campbell Banks and Sam Johnston.

Campbell is a qualified engineer, boat owner & fisherman and knows the need for marine equipment care inside and out.  

Sam is an experienced marine engine mechanic with an active role in the chemical manufacturing industry in New Zealand.

Together these guys have developed a new engine flush and all-purpose salt remover product range, Salty Bay.

Salty Bay is a venture created for the sole purpose of providing top quality products, locally made at a reasonable price.

Salt Guard - Their flagship brand is a top-shelf marine engine flush, salt removal wash & corrosion inhibiting cleaner designed to be both user friendly and effective to give you the peace of mind you need when caring for your equipment.

Campbell Banks and Sam Johnston from Canterbury started Salty Bay in 2020 after Campbell bought a boat that quickly failed due to port damage caused by saltwater corrosion. They saw the options available and set out to provide Kiwi’s with a better-quality version, locally made with New Zealand conditions in mind.

These guys are passionate about bringing the best products to market, making jobs easier & the experience enjoyable for anyone trying to protect any fishing or boating equipment from the ravages of salt corrosion.

There’s a solid range of products and sizes available, with custom application devices all designed to make hosing and flushing engines and gear an easy job, leaving your valuable boating stuff clean, shiny and protected.

We look forward to testing these products over the summer, and bringing you a long term test, but our initial impressions of the product are very positive.

The Salty Bay team offer free shipping throughout New Zealand, and 100% satisfaction policy.

If you are keen on trying the Salty Bay range yourself, and supporting a local New Zealand business, check out the product range and more info HERE

Suzuki Clean Ocean Project

Suzuki Develops the World's First Micro-Plastic Collecting Device for Outboard Motors: Suzuki Motor Corporation has developed the world’s first* Micro-Plastic Collecting Device which can be installed on outboard motors. Marine plastic waste has become a significant environmental issue in the recent years and a huge amount of such wastes that has not been gathered correctly flow into the ocean. They are then broken down into micro-plastic under the natural environment and their impact on the ecological system is also becoming a concern. To tackle these issues, we focused on the structure of the outboard motor, which pumps up tons of seawater to cool the engine and then returned to the ocean. We developed a collecting device which collects micro-plastic waste by utilizing the returning water. Through this device, micro-plastic waste around the water surfaces can be collected just by running the boat.

Seeing the value of marine reserves
Inshore
Did you know that a big 70cm snapper can produce the same amount of eggs as 36 legal sized 30cm fish? Marine reserves are more and more becoming the last option we have to preserve certain fish stocks, given that limits put on commercial and recreational fishing are slow to change due to debatable political and economic reasons. For one, it lends sense to the action of putting the big fish back into the breeding system at least. Take a look at a few research insights about how we can better protect marine biodiversity, presented by Nick Shears from Leigh Marine laboratory.
