First Look: Humphree Lightning
Humphree, makers of marine stabilization and trim solutions, designed its new Lightning system for boats from 25 to 45 feet, powered by outboards, inboards, sterndrives or jets. The patented interceptor blades mount on either side of the transom. When they deploy vertically into the water, they create lift. Lightning’s blades extend 50 mm in half a second to stabilize small boats with short roll periods.
Lightning is available in a variety of packages that include auto trim, auto list, coordinated turn, and roll stabilization. Boaters can also purchase the optional integrated WRGB underwater lights with smartphone integration.
