power shift

Some of my favorite adventures have been fueled by outboards. As a kid, that meant summer afternoons pretending to be a Navy SEAL and beaching my parents’ dinghy at a speed I’m thankful they never caught me doing. These days, my favorite mornings start with a yank of my Suzuki’s pullcord and puttering through a mooring field toward shore. Sunrise, my small family and a smooth-running motor: There’s no better way to start the day. And okay, fine, maybe I still zip around occasionally pretending to be a Navy SEAL; I know more than a few of you do the same, don’t lie. Recently, our reporting has allowed me to run some incredible outboard-powered boats. A few months back I was aboard a hell-bent Mag Bay 33 as it carved turns…

the perfect project

The 1950s table saw in Adam Parchman’s garage is stored neatly beside a workbench covered with boatbuilding plans. It has no safety features to speak of. When I approach the saw with wood in hand, Parchman politely tells me he’ll do the cutting. The 32-year-old engineer is the founder of Salt Boatworks, a company that sells boatbuilding plans and jigs to anyone who wants to build a boat. The venture is the result of years of generous mentorship from dozens of folks including Shay Trainer of Trainer Boatworks and Donnie Caison of Caison Yachts. He remembers many of them saying, “You’re a crazy young kid. I like you.” His mentors taught him about cold molding, making a jig and using a CNC machine. It took him two and a half years to…

crash & burn

My favorite part of Speed Kills, the quasi-biopic starring John Travolta, comes around the halfway point. In a smoky Miami nightclub, the King of Jordan, Hussein bin Talal, introduces his womanizing, offshore-racing business associate with a stately declaration fit for a king. “My friends, you can’t say Miami without saying … Ben Aronoff.” [Cue record scratch.] Of course, the combination of a three-letter name with a conspicuous Russian surname is a dead giveaway: Travolta is portraying champion racer and self-made millionaire Don Aronow. Or at least he’s trying. The swagger is there, as is a touch of 1980s master-of-the-universe arrogance. But something is missing, and “Ben Aronoff” comes off as nothing more than a caricature. In his review, critic Simon Abrams wrote, “I can’t recommend Speed Kills to anyone because it’s…

the perils of being mr. clean

The guy seemed normal enough at the time. (We’ll call him “Dave”.) Dave was in his early 50s with a wife and kids, and a career in the financial industry. It was the spring of 2015 and I was backing my convertible By Design into my slip for another season on the Great Lakes. His boat, a beautiful modern yacht, was tied up in the slip behind me, his bow a mere 15 feet from my cockpit. As I tied up and plugged in, he was on his bow with a hose, washing the fiberglass deck down. Good to have a neighbor who keeps his boat clean, I thought to myself. Later that day I returned to the marina, and from 100 yards down the dock I spotted Dave on his…

under the mini dome

I stood on an upper floor of the Bahia Mar Hotel and looked west at a Ft. Lauderdale boat show in full swing. Earlier I had walked the docks with my colleagues, carefully scrutinizing and discussing the myriad vessels. Now from my perch I noticed something we didn’t discuss: Every big motoryacht had massive radar arches replete with pairs of satellite communication domes, while the sportfish boat hardtops were graced with open-array radar. They’ve become so common, with some crossover—the larger sportfish tend to have both—that we essentially ignored them. For the remainder of the show I sought to learn more about the former, asking builders and brokers about the sat coms aboard their vessels. A handful of names came up, but none more frequently than KVH; later, I found the…
