Enrel Y2K+ Light
What's bugging you Bucky? Huh?
Are you standing on your head in the engine compartment looking for
those $%#! drain plugs with a flashlight? And you can't find them?
So you drag 100 feet of extension cord from the nearest
outlet in the marina and plug in a work light so you can see what you
are doing only to find out the bulb is dead from being crushed in your
tool box under the gear puller?
Well we've found the answer to your emergency lighting needs!
The Enrel Energy Corp.
sent us their Y2K+ Light
just in time for spring re-commissioning. A well thought out little
gadget, this light comes with a cigarette lighter plug and
alligator clips. You can either plug it in or clip it on. This is
a florescent light encased in tough plastic. There's no filament to
break, there's no battery. You just plug it in to your boat or car's
12 volt system and it floods your work area with an even glow that
makes it easy to see what you are doing. Even in the black abyss of
Classical Gas' engine
compartment the soft even light made it easy to see and work.
For our unscientific tests we took this little jewel out to the
power boat for a day of engine work. We used it while re-commisioning
the engine and installing a new charger. Then we threw it in the ole tool box
and drove it around for a couple hundred miles just to see if it
would survive. We took it down to
our new racing yacht and used it for some electrical work and left
it there for a couple of weeks just to see if the humidity bothered
it. No problem!
The Y2K+ Light draws only 1/2 amp and emits the equivalent light of a
40W incandescent bulb. It is encased in tough plastic and comes with
a long cord and both a cigarette lighter plug and alligator clips.
Check with your local AAA store, they may have the Y2K+ Light by
now and it should be available in chain stores soon. It is manufactured
by EnRel Corp in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Their phone number is

with us for deliveries, long distance races and just plain cruisin'.
