  • Boating is Affordable

    Boating is affordable and there’s a boat for every age, lifestyle and budget. Most people don’t realize how affordable boating is: in some instances, you can buy a brand new boat financed for around $250.00 a month, like a car. Boats provide tax deductible and cost effective second homes. Interest on a boat loan can be deducted if the boat has a galley, berth and head. • Visit a boat show to see what boating products are available and line up the best deals. Fuel: The typical boater only operates his or her vessel about 75 hours a season. Nearly 95 percent of boats on the water today are under 26’ in length. These crafts do not require exorbitant amounts of gas, so any impact...

  • EPIRBS, PLBS and AIS: Behind The Acronyms

    One of the greatest advances in marine safety is the ability to quickly summon help in an emergency anywhere in the world. Emergency beacons give us this piece of mind, but the different varieties on the market can land the layperson in a morass of complicated acronyms. Here we are going to try and make sense of EPIRBs, PLBs, and Personal AIS beacons. These are the devices that mariners will typically see available. EPIRB The EPIRB (Emergency Position-Indicating Radio Beacon) is a communications device which is used to alert rescue services that a vessel is in distress. As the name indicates these devices use the 406MHz radio frequency to alert the the Search and Rescue Satellite aided Tracking also known as the COSPAS-SARSAT Syetem system. This network...

  • “Delivered” by Captain BullDog

    Finally we were able to depart on time. We only had now 10.5 hours of daylight....we picked up a full 60 more minutes by heading south. The owner was opposed to leaving at daybreak. With the Right Whale speed restriction West of the 80th meridian we had to leave port at first light. The owner also insisted on showing me how good he was in pulling into a slip. Each time "wham, Bam"....way too fast. We braced for impact every time. We had pulled into Port Canaveral at Sunshine Marina. Nice restaurant nearby. The next day we made it to Bahia Mar, Fort Lauderdale or should I say - we crash landed again. Leaving Port Canaveral, the owner forced the hydraulic steering piston beyond the...
