lessons from fishermen

Fishing may seem like an easy sport, but from my perspective—as a person who has never had much luck bringing keepers into the cockpit—success requires certain characteristics. Among them: determination and patience, traits that also have enabled some fishermen to build solid fishing boats. I’m thinking of Steve Potts, who founded Scout Boats in South Carolina in the 1980s. The company had a humble beginning: Steve, his wife, and a helper in a brick barn, and about $50,000 in seed money, which Potts had saved over the years while working side jobs and raising a family. He started out building a small saltwater fishing boat. It was simple, but it was well made. Soon, the craftsmanship attracted a handful of dealers. Potts would build the boats during the week and, on…

YOU ROCK! The March 2019 issue was fabulous. I could not put it down until I read it completely. I’m not sure that’s ever happened to me before. I grew up boating on my father’s 40-foot Chris-Craft that he kept at the Detroit Yacht Club, where he was Commodore in 1973. I was Commodore in 1993, the club’s 125th anniversary. I’ve traveled all the Great Lakes on several boats, the most recent a 44-foot Tollycraft Cockpit Motor Yacht. I’ve also sailed and taught sailing: I even met my wife on the water—I had her in my sailing class and the rest is history. We’ve been sailing together since then, over 42 years ago. She is currently at our place in Hobe Sound, Florida, but I spent some time this past winter…

soon to be shipshape

In early July last summer, I watched as our crew aboard the schooner Heritage dropped anchor in Rockland Harbor, Maine. Another three-masted schooner maneuvered nearby. “That’s the Victory Chimes,” said Heritage skipper Capt. Doug Lee. “She’s the only Chesapeake ram schooner left. They hauled lumber, grain, coal, you name it.” Though Victory Chimes was a beautiful vessel with a neat Chesapeake tie-in, I didn’t give her much more thought at the time. Five months later, just last December, I was walking across the campus of the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Maryland, with shipwright Duncan MacFarlane, who is leading a two-year rebuild on the museum’s 107-year-old Chesapeake Bay-built tug, Delaware. “She was built in 1912 by William H. Smith in Bethel, Delaware with white oak frames and pine planks,”…

the flammable fix

Joyce “Jay” McCreight, a third-term Democrat in Maine’s House of Representatives, was perhaps the least likely lawmaker in America to lead on the issue of collecting expired flares from boats. The retired social worker isn’t even a boat owner. She had no idea that flares expire 42 months after they’re made, or that boaters are required to replace them after just a few seasons on the water. But, McCreight is from Harpswell, which is on Casco Bay in the Gulf of Maine. That means her constituents include a slew of lobstermen and recreational boaters, all of whom—just like boaters across the United States—have been flummoxed for decades while trying to figure out where to put the expired flares. “I had a lobsterman call me and say, ‘What am I supposed to do…
