Product Review- TACO Grand Slam 800 VHF Antenna & 900 Anchor & Stern Light
Introducing the Grand Slam 800 VHF Antenna Mount and the Grand Slam 900 Anchor & Stern Light—available right now at your favorite marine retailer.
The new GS-800 VHF Antenna Mount was created specifically to prevent climbing on the boat gunnel to raise and lower a VHF antenna. With the GS-800, lift and descend the antenna from the safety of the deck from under the top. Its smooth operation, attractive machined aluminum frame, and cast stainless-steel rotator make this item a must for any boater.
The GS-800 mounts to tops up to 2″ thick and features a standard 1″-14 thread (male) shaft to accept standard VHF antennas. This exciting new mount is made right here in the USA and comes with a 1-year limited warranty.
Watch an exclusive video featuring Capt. Mark Henderson, from the Liquid Fire Fishing Team, on TACO Marine’s popular YouTube channel at youtube.com/tacomarine. In the video, Henderson explains the many great features of the GS-800 and demonstrates just how easy it is to use.
The new Grand Slam 900 Anchor & Stern Light was engineered for the safety and convenience of today’s boater. Climbing on the boat gunnel to raise and lower an anchor and stern light is dangerous, time consuming, and frustrating.
The GS-900 allows boat operators to lift and descend this navigational requirement from the safety of the deck, right under the top and without ever having to climb on the gunnel again.
Simply extend the crank handle and rotate the light to the upright position or back to its stowed, towing location. The light runs on 12 volts and consists of four 3-watt LED Cree chips driven by two Mean Well drivers. Its smooth operation, attractive machined aluminum frame, and cast stainless-steel rotator make this item a must for any boater.
The GS-900 is ideal for powered vessels 39′ and under (12 meters or less) and is certified for USCG-required 2 nautical miles. Like the GS-800, the GS-900 is also made right here in the USA and comes with a 1-year limited warranty.
