Our test boat came equipped with a Maretron Vessel Monitoring and Control System that uses a variety of sensors and cameras to keep tabs on tank levels, engine data, bilge-pump activity, navigation instrument status, and general shipboard functions like whether a hatch is closed or open. The system sends text message alerts to a cellphone should something go wrong onboard.
