Huntsville, Ala. – T-H Marine Supplies Inc. of Huntsville, Ala., was awarded a 2016 IBEX Innovation Award for its Snapflex LED Stern Navigation Light at the International Boatbuilders’ Exhibition & Conference (IBEX) Industry Breakfast. This IBEX Innovation Award was in the “Deck Equipment and Hardware” category.
T-H Marine’s president, Jeff Huntley, stated, "We are so excited to have our Snap-Flex navigation light recognized for the innovations it represents. No major changes have occurred to stern light poles in decades. We decided it was time to change that. This patented design that effortlessly snaps into place, locks tight, and flexes to prevent breakage is a major design leap that boat builders and boaters are already loving."
The T-H Marine Snapflex LED Stern Navigation light features a patented RCA CAM quick release, locking base. This allows the navigation light to be quickly and securely installed. In addition, the Snapflex light features a flexible fiberglass shaft that prevents damage to both the light and boat in the event of any impact to the light. In addition, it is a 2-Mile USCG approved navigation light.
IBEX Innovation Award winners were chosen in 13 categories. These winners were selected by a panel of judges from Boating Writers International (BWI). This is a professional organization of writers, editors and other professions from the boating industry.
