Vero Beach, Fla.-based Scandvik will supply Dolphin battery chargers for Seakeeper’s OEM and dealer networks when installing Seakeeper’s 1, 2 and 3 gyrostabilizers. “Working more closely with Scandvik and Dolphin chargers is going to elevate what we provide to our installers, making installations more turnkey,” said Seakeeper president and CEO Andrew Semprevivo in the statement.

The crew of the SpaceX fleet ship Go Searcher was practicing recovery of an astronaut capsule last Friday off Port Canaveral, Fla., when they were called upon for a good Samaritan rescue. A 54-year old man was freeing his boat’s fouled props when he fell overboard and was swept away by the current. Port Canaveral said on its Twitter feed that the man was wearing a life jacket and was uninjured.
