nauti words

I am writing this during a cold snap in December, which in the Northeast U.S. means temps in the low 20-degree F range. During my morning walk, an acquaintance returned my hello outside the coffee shop with a nod and the pithy “Cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey.” The words hung for a moment, both in the air, due to his frosty breath, and in my mind, due to something I’d once heard. Back in the Age of Sail, crew sometimes stowed cannonballs in pyramidal stacks beside the cannon. You’ve seen this. The top level of the stack had one ball, the next level down had four, the next had nine, the next had 16, and so on. Four levels would provide a stack of 30 balls.…

robby maschhaupt

A former NASCAR pit-crew member, the fun-loving Robby Maschhaupt has made it his mission to spread his love for wakesurfing to as many people as he can through the Pass the Handle movement. This summer he’s teamed up with Centurion Boats, Roswell Marine, Monster Energy, and other sponsors to create an epic tour that’s free for any who want to come ride with him. What’s the Pass the Handle movement all about, and what does it mean to you? At its core, Pass the Handle was created to help introduce the fun of towed watersports to new people. For me personally, it’s about giving back to the sports and lifestyle I love so much. I get so much joy out of not only teaching people to wakesurf, but also in knowing that…

GILL CLASSICS WHY CRUISE? Gill specializes in gear and apparel for those who venture far outside the inlet. The Classics frames come in three colors and — most importantly — they float, so if they get knocked off in rough water, you can retrieve them. The scratch-resistant polarized lenses block 100 percent of UVA, UVB and UVC radiation. WHY NOT? Polarization is not as good as the Costas for reducing glare and seeing below the surface. PRICE: $89; gillmarine.com COSTA RINCONCITOS WHY FISH? Costa’s 580 polarized lenses are, in my opinion, the best out there for fishing, with different styles that reduce glare and improve your vision into the water — great attributes for any serious angler. The Rinconcito frames are great for medium faces, which means most people, and evoke a California surfer vibe. WHY…

You’ll see a new luxury boat brand model at this season’s shows. It’s called the Aviara Boats AV32, and it features either outboard or sterndrive power. According to the builder, the AV32 fuses progressive style and effortless comfort in a modern luxury boat designed to set itself apart from the rest. “From what the captain encounters — the control from the command chair and the prestige of being the host — to that special crew invited aboard to share in the freedom and great times, we are committed to creating the ultimate flawless experience,” stated Aviara in an exclusive, early statement we procured. As the image shows, the Aviara AV32 boasts the attitude and stance of a waterborne roadster with its aggressive lines and racy, angular windshield. Yet the arch provides shelter…
