2008 was a challenging year both personally and professionally. The Radon Team made it through the year with the help of many people. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped make 2008 an easier and more productive year. We are looking forward to a better 2009 for all!
And what could make 2009 better?
On May 11th our first grandchild, Paige Juliet Radon, was born. The entire Radon/Schroeder family is delighted! Paige, Sarah and Josh are doing fine.
Russell McCluskey's Custom Radon 29'
Russell McCluskey, of Kauai, Hawaii, recently took delivery of a custom 29' Radon.
The boat was powered with a Volvo D6 330 HP engine. Russell loves to fish so the whole boat was designed with that in mind.

Engine care, part six:
Pay attention to your gauges and heed their warnings
Buzzers and warning lights are an inexpensive way to alert you when there is an engine problem with your boat.
However, in many cases, by the time they go off it may be too late to avoid damage to your engine. And sometimes, the buzzers and warning lights are not operating, therefore you may not even know there is a problem.
Gauges are the best way to know what is going on with your engine. Minor fluctuations in temperature, oil pressure, charging rate or fuel flow can be an early indication of a future problem. Dramatic changes, such as a complete drop in oil pressure or rise in temperature can indicate animmediate problem. By monitoring the engine gauges you may be able to detect and correct a problem and/or shut down the engine before serious damage occurs.
