Dockmate expands relationship with Vetus

Dockmate, which makes wireless remote controls for yachts, has expanded its relationship with thruster manufacturer Vetus.

The wireless remote-controls system lets an operator move away from the helm to improve sightlines while maneuvering in close quarters. Dockmate says its system now integrates with the full line of Vetus thrusters.
