Day and night vision cameras now monitor Shellerina, and help when navigating!

Wyze CAM v3 cameras have CMOS Starlight sensors for remarkable color night vision, and they can be toggled to IR (infrared mode). They are also weatherproof.

An iPad at the helm will help me see traffic in back of us… likely overtaking us on one side or the other. At night these cameras see a lot more than we can! They record “events” differentiating PEOPLE as opposed to ALL motion types. Afterall, things are always moving on a boat; we only want to be notified if people come aboard.

a “dark” boat last night, as seen when we got back home!

Earlier last evening:

Dez, Shell, Chelsea, Nick, and I enjoy a meal captured by a new Wyze CAM v3.

Wireless Internet on Shellerina!

When you visit Shellerina we can give you access to our own WiFi Access Point. What is the SSID?

Shellerina of course!

Pictured here are the guts: two MiMo vertical antennas and a Pepwave dual-modem CAT 12 router. Two SIM cards: VZW and T-Mobile.

The smaller ‘black box’ is the Pepwave router. The rabbit ears are WiFi paddle antennas for you to connect to, to gain access to the boat’s network. This wireless network has been operable at our home since Christmas when Santa delivered it. But it is now deployed on the boat where it was intended.

Also visible in the antenna pic is our new radar doppler scanner, Raymarine Quantum2.

The larger black box in the second pic is an Icom 7100 amateur radio and SSB Marine HF radio. (More on that later.)


Ray has never skippered a vessel with radar… always wanted to learn about it! Santa fit one down the chimney last December, and with Nick and Bobby’s help, we finally got it working today!

Lots of clutter / echos here at the marina; we will learn more about it underway!
