Home Port Marine Marketing, a marine products consultancy, signed four new clients for its global product distribution network development and product public relations services.
• Bad Elf, of West Hartford, Conn., which offers Apple-approved external plug-and-play GPS accessories to enable direct satellite connections anywhere to digital charts and other marine apps for the iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad.
• Dolphinite Products, of Salem, Mass., which supplies gelcoat, boat care and maintenance products. The company's GelMatch Gelcoat Color Matching System won the NMMA Product Innovation Award in the Boat Care and Maintenance category at IBEX 2012.
• MMLJ Manufacturing in Houston. The company’s new, eco-friendly Dustless Blasting System uses an environmentally inert combination of water and recycled bottled glass to remove paint and marine growth from boat bottoms without harming the gelcoat in one-tenth the time of traditional techniques.
