Monitoring System Helps Prevent Sinking At Spring Launch FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA (USA) – A GOST (Global Ocean Security Technologies – formerly Paradox Marine) Marine Magellan monitoring system recently helped to prevent a potentially disastrous spring launch by alerting a boat owner in Massachusetts that his boat was taking on water shortly after it was back in the water for the season.


Jon Carey received a call from the GOST system on his cell phone not long after he gave his yard the OK to launch his Jarvis Newman 38. “The prior day I checked the boat but missed the 10 inch exhaust tube that was removed. I was less than 10 minutes away, so looking back I should have waited to be present at the launch. Fortunately, my GOST Marine Magellan worked exactly as advertised. It truly saved my season and a lot of money,” Carey said.

GOST Phantom includes all the components necessary to help protect a boat and keep an eye on exactly what is happening onboard at all times. Marine Magellan notifies a boat owner or captain in seconds via a phone call if there’s high water in the bilge, low battery voltage, loss of shore power, smoke, or intrusion.

“This is yet another example of the value of direct, two-way voice call outs from Marine Magellan. This product is at the foundation of our company and has filled a significant void in the marine industry. Thousands of owners sleep better every night because GOST products are installed on their boat,” said Brian Kane, GOST Director of Research and Development.
