Chuck Husick Award Finalists


2013 was another year of great marine technology products and some of those were nominated by our panel of judges for consideration for the Chuck Husick Marine Technology Award, named for the late Ocean Navigator contributing editor who had a comprehensive grasp of marine technology. Following a round of nominations, the selected products were voted on and the top vote getters are shown below. These are the finalists for the 2013 Husick Award (with links to the products).
