Do you hate reading manuals? We specifically designed the SpeedPuck sothat almost anyone can figure out how it works in a few minutes withouthaving to read anything.
See what you can't feel.
A less than half-knot change in boatspeed doesn’t sound like much. It doesn’t feel like much either and that’s the problem.
Unless you have an accurate instrument like the SpeedPuck on board you probably won’t notice anything at first. Eventually you will notice though because even if you’re only 0.1 knots off pace, you’re losing more than a boatlength every three minutes. Without a good speedo, you’ll most likely be sucking exhaust by the time you realize that something’s wrong.
With the SpeedPuck you get a new speed measurement every half-second. If you wander into adverse current or your crew on the rail start slacking, the SpeedPuck will tell you right away.
The SpeedPuck is designed for long-term reliability in a saltwatermarine environment. The SpeedPuck's caseback screws on and off like thelid of a leak-proof water bottle to reveal the battery compartment. Inaddition to this, the battery compartment is completely sealed off fromthe rest of the device's electronics, providing a second layer ofprotection against moisture.
Easy to Read.
The SpeedPuck’s sunlight-readable high-contrast LCD screen features 27mm (1.1”) tall digits in a font that’s optimized for readability. This means that if your boat’s under 40ft long you’ll be able to mount the SpeedPuck on your mast and read it easily from anywhere in the cockpit, even if you don’t have perfect vision.

Hit the water. Now.
What do you do when you read these words: “Please read this manual fully before using your new...” ? If you’re like most sailors you probably stop reading and immediately stash the document in an obscure location where it will suffer water damage and / or never be found again.
With the SpeedPuck we decided to get real and design a product that almost anybody can figure out and start using in a few minutes, without having to read anything.
