black friday brawl

I wore a short-sleeve shirt, long-sleeve shirt, sweatshirt and winter coat. I had gloves, a hat—I was too tough to wear a scarf, even though it would have been handy. I tried in vain to neatly coil the shore power cord: It was frozen solid and refused to bend. The thermometer read 18 degrees. Warmer than the day before, but not by much. My family’s annual fall fishing trip was a slight break from tradition; we typically aim to go fishing for stripers on Thanksgiving morning. High winds and seas had canceled what we affectionately call The Turkey Brawl. Overnight, as the tryptophan and food coma wore off, the wind offshore shifted direction and the seas lay down flat. Suddenly The Brawl was back on. Over the years we’ve seen a revolving…

one dog at a time

Hurricane Dorian was still spinning like a dreidel of devastation over the Bahamas when the boating community—much of it still in the crosshairs of Dorian themselves—jumped into action to offer aid. Volunteer flotillas began to mobilize, pop-up aid drop-offs were organized and GoFundMe accounts sprung up across the internet. There was confusion and chaos as our community came to grips with the devastation in the islands and how best to help. For the team at Yacht Aid Global (YAG), a disaster relief and humanitarian aid organization, the path forward was clear. Established in 2006, YAG understood the value of using superyachts as emergency response vehicles in hard-to-reach locales. As self-sustaining ships, they would not be a burden on a location’s already depleted resources; they also boasted the volume to transport massive…

light housekeeping

Sally Snowman wears a bonnet when she mows the lawn. You know, the staple headpiece for women in the Colonial era. “I don’t know why it ever went out of vogue,” Snowman says with a laugh, in a way that makes clear she is only partially joking. She’s the lightkeeper of the Boston Light, the oldest lighthouse in the U.S. and the only one that remains manned—womanned, technically—today. The Light, which was originally built on Little Brewster Island in 1716, survived an attack by the British in 1776. The first 10 feet or so of the 89-foot tower is original, and these days the only threat to the iconic landmark is the seemingly endless list of maintenance chores. Unlike the other roughly 200 lighthouses owned by the Coast Guard, which are…

the admiral’s next boat

With a combined 50-plus years of boating experience under our keels, much of it together on our various boats over the past two decades, my wife Elizabeth (a.k.a. the Admiral) and I have been thinking about The Next Boat. We usually see eye to eye on trivial matters like personal finances and parenthood. But when it comes to the important stuff, like choosing The Next Boat, our charted courses are, at this moment, diverging. What’s a yacht designer to do when his wife starts making noise about a new one? By way of some perspective, we have cruised the Great Lakes as a family for the past six years aboard By Design, a Tiara convertible. Tiara builds great boats; not only are they a client of mine but, to paraphrase the…

pyroclastic fantastic

Pompeii. Krakatoa. Mount St. Helens. Volcanoes are generally associated with the death and destruction that follows when they blow their tops. Or inconvenience, as when the ash plume from Iceland’s Eyjafjallajökull led to a weeks-long, worldwide air traffic nightmare. But volcanoes have also gifted us the Hawaiian Islands, geothermal energy and as any sommelier worth their Sangiovese knows, world-renowned wines from the super-rich soil in the shadows of Mount Etna and Vesuvius. Could the mineral-rich volcanic rock filaments produce a superior, green replacement for fiberglass in boatbuilding? A recent collaboration between an Italian superyacht yard and an eco-conscious manufacturer is betting on it. The Belgian company Isomatex has developed a durable fiber from the basalt rock of lava flows. Dubbed Filava, the material got the attention of Amer Yachts as a cleaner,…
