Next Level Sponsored Events in October

Next Level Car Truck Audio Custom Charity Golf Sponsor

In the month of October, Next Level was honored to be a sponsor in this years seasonal Gravel Tour wakeboard competition and the Stars and Pars charity golf tournament supporting Give Kids the World Village.

We were a raffle sponsor for this years 2019 Stars & Pars charity golf and gala at the exquisite Waldorf Astoria Resort Orlando on October, 25th. Posted up in our custom audio tent on the 1st hole, it was fun to watch everyone hit their driver off the tee box, short and far. Thank you again John for inviting us this year!

Give Kids The World Village is an 84-acre, nonprofit “storybook” resort in Central Florida. There, children with critical illnesses and their families are treated to weeklong, cost-free vacations. This golf tournament started 7 years ago with a group of employees who raised $1500 for the charity. Over the years, Stars and Pars has raised a combined $1million in donations from across the country!!!!

It was a great event and we met a lot of caring people donating to the cause. At the end, we picked out of the raffle, a happy golfer who took home a Yeti 45 Hauler with Stars and Pars logo in SeaDek installed on top and a $150 gift card to our shop. Together, the raffle raised over 3x the Yeti’s retail value.

Please visit their website and Instagram account! This child below is only 10 years old and has already undergone 5 open heart surgeries. What an amazing spirit!!

Bocatech-Switches-Installed-Acrylic-Dash-Florida-Boats

Based in Deerfield Beach, Florida Bocatech delivers industry leading power management systems for a variety of vehicles such as RV’s, boats, trucking as well as aviation. Bocatech specializes in designing & manufacturing high quality products for over 30 years.

Below we will discuss some of Bocatech’s more popular products and what benefits they offer you as the consumer.

Bocatech’s Mini LED Navigation/ Anchor Push Button Switch is one of those featured products. It is built with 316 stainless steel components, is environmentally rugged and hosts a stylish bi-color function LED.
One switch provides two channel outputs for Nav & Anchor boat light. Because of its size the mini LED is efficient and only requires a 3/4inch hole for installation. Multiple functions are available with the press of a single button; lets go over all that it can do. First press turns on the Navigation & Anchor lights and the LED ring will turn Blue. Second press leaves Anchor light on and turns off Navigation light the LED ring will turn Red and the Third press turns all lights off.
See below pictures of a custom installation we did for a Sterling boat with an Acrylic Dash made in-house and Bocatech Switches installed.
Bocatech’s new Mini 15ADC, solid state Push Button Switch is another popular product for this Deerfield Beach based company . It is built to last with stainless steel components is environmentally rugged designed to handle the toughest conditions.
Bocatech’s self-contained, new Mini Switch delivers high power 15AD, most other switches in this size only deliver 3-5DC amps.Because of its size, the distribution can be populated more densely and still provide high current to branch circuitry. With the Mini 15ADC there is no need for external electronic control or wiring. Installation is very simple and only requires a ¾ inch hole for high current products. The Mini 15ADC won an Innovation Award at the 2015 IBEX show which highlights technology in the boarding industry.
Along with the switches offered Bocatech also has a line of isolators and automatic power selectors. The Bocatech Automatic Power Selectors provide simple, solid state solution for redundant DC power for vital electronic equipment while maintaining isolation of the DC power sources.
Bocatech offers these in 2 variations:
-The ones containing the number 1 in the model number have Schottsky diodes and a 0.3V drop @ full load.
-The ones with a model number not containing the number 1, have 0.6V drops.
The independent batteries are wired to higher torque-accepting terminals and internal diodes maintain total isolation between them. They are combined in a single output which is wired to the load. The unit is ruggedly constructed with heavy-duty wiring studs and epoxy potted components in an anodized aluminum case.
See below a custom acrylic dash that we installed a slew of Bocatech Switches to control most of the boat’s electronics. Wiring this boat was no laughing matter, but we at Next Level choose to make sure that the installation of electronics and wiring are the best you can find in Florida.
As you can see Deerfield Beach, Florida based Bocatech Switches offers consumers many different options all delivering their own benefits.

Pathfinder Boat Gets SeaDek

Some boats we work on come new from the dealer, and some come used. The used boats tend to be more fun to work on because we really help transform boats from old looking to new. And the customer’s “WOW” factor is greater when we revive boats than if we just added some electronics.

Installed SeaDek and white caulk around seams of this Pathfinder 2400.

This Pathfinder 2400 boat, we installed SeaDek to the walls of the gunwal’s for a quieter ride with fishing gear hanging up inside. We also added SeaDek with an extra thick (30mm) Helm Pad for under the captains feet.

One of the things that we did to clean up this 2400 was fill seams with new white caulk around the gunwal and center console. This made a big difference to the owner as well as our staff.

Next Level is an authorized dealer of Yeti products and accessories like this cooler and top cushion for seating. It fit perfectly in front of the helm for a better boating experience.

REVO12FASW
12″ Free Air Marine Subwoofer

Free Air REVO subs are recommended primarily for Infinite Baffle (Free Air) applications where a dedicated subwoofer enclosure is not available or practical. Both 10” & 12” REVO FA subs are available in White or Black frames (Black frames use metallic grey cones). All REVO FA Subs are available in either single 2 Ohm or single 4 Ohm impedances.



Next Level is an authorized dealer of Wet Sounds speakers.

With so many speakers to power and sound right on the wakeboard tower, it can be challenging to have a perfect installation. That’s why we were very excited to hear that the owner of this Axis wakeboard boat, chose Next Level to complete the installation that he had started but was having a hard time finding someone to get it done right.

With a complete rewire of the entire tower and system, we made sure that there was quality power from the extra batteries to every speaker. Now this boat can play the loudest music on the water.

SeaRay SPX 230 Gets Kicker and SeaDek®

A customer recently brought in their SeaRay SPX 230 for a SeaDek® and stereo upgrade.

After meeting with the client, they chose their favorite color combo and pattern. Then we went over the different types of boat speakers we offer and the choice was for Kicker Marine Audio. A couple of new speakers for the back of the boat and new subwoofer by the passenger really make a big difference on the lake.

Durable and shock absorbent, SeaDek® provides not only an exceptional traction surface but also lessens the fatigue brought on by prolonged standing and working on hard decking and platforms. SeaDek® also protects your deck from scratching, chipping and dents. Fishermen will appreciate SeaDek’s® noise reducing qualities.

Miss “E” Sailboat Gets SeaDeked

Naming your boat is fun, especially when it’s a play on words, misspelled on purpose and catchy.

Sailboat

This customer trailered his sailboat to our shop asking to have a new floor material installed to enjoy his boat, not just with a nice looking floor, but for a safety purpose that the SeaDek Marine Product comes with that is Non-Skid. This material from SeaDek is soft so installing where people sit was a great idea that the owner had and we were happy to help him.
