a few afloat a-learnings

The language of an activity provides a reliable indicator to that enterprise’s complexity and potential for both expression and learning by its participants. The vocabulary for using a shovel consists of the single word “dig.” Playing the oboe requires myriad vernacular, from addorato to Zwischenspiel. Boating proves more musical than menial. Since starting at the beginning usually makes sense, let us begin with the letter A. Most of us know the terms adrift and afloat, and an equally large number understand the word aground.

Fewer of us, I’m sure, would profess familiarity with some of the terms used to describe the finer points of executing one of boating’s most common and most important tasks. I’m…

darrell “bubba” wallace jr. nascar driver

Did you grow up boating in North Carolina? No. The only time I ever went on a boat was when I visited my uncle in Mobile, Alabama. I remember riding his Jet Skis.

It was really cool. When did you start racing? I started racing go-karts when I was 9. I just kept going and racing in every circuit as I got older and better, and now I’m with Richard Petty in the Cup…

axopar 28

From Finland, Axopar boats look different, perform well, and provide versatility and easy maintenance. The new 28 series exemplifies this ethos. Take a look. Modular pods allow Axopar to offer one hull in three configurations: 28 Cabin, 28 T-top and 28 Open. According to Axopar, the cabin version shown opens up a world of possibilities for boaters seeking longer journeys and more time spent aboard. Up to five people can comfortably sit inside this airy space. And while a couple can overnight, the modular aft-cabin option extends the cruising potential of this new boat. In its open configuration, a protected helm station is at the center, while myriad activities can take place fore and aft. Axopar boats defiantly challenge the logic that boats must compromise. Mercury outboards to 400 hp combine with the…
