SHAFTED Reader C. Henry DePew caught us in a sin of omission committed in our June issue. He correctly states: “Nicely written article by Capt. Vincent Daniello. One step that should be emphasized in checking the alignment of the shaft couplings is that the boat should be floating in the water. A shaft aligned when the boat is on the trailer may no longer be aligned when the boat is floating in the water. Been there, done that.” Thanks, C. Henry. It’s a great thing to own a boat, especially when it’s summertime and the long, long day stretches before you with no plans other than to slip the lines and enjoy time on the water. I’ve made it a priority to equip my boat — indeed, organize my life — to…

It’s also in a partnership with Stanford University and the only one of the 10 XQ winners built on a barge. That’s not exactly a new one for schools (or hospitals or homes), but it is the first barge dedicated to the study of the coast while climate change melts ice caps, heats up the globe, and creates more fierce storms. Under construction in the Mississippi Plaquemines Parish, which was hit especially hard by Hurricane Katrina, New Harmony will be anchored in Venice, Louisiana, and will accept 40 to 45 Louisiana freshmen every year for four years, until the boat is full. Each student’s curriculum…

Whether you’re a boater or any other kind of adventurer, the dream is to have access to an endless supply of potable water so you don’t have to lug it with you. This filtration bottle from Lifesaver helps in that regard. As long as you have access to fresh water, you can run it through the bottle’s filter system to kill 99 percent of any virus or bacteria present in the water. You pour the water into the bottom of the bottle, and it works through a nano-filtration system to provide 750 ml of clean, drinkable water. $149.95; iconlifesaver.com 1,550 HORSEPOWER Mercury Racing’s largest sterndrive, based on a 9.0L V-8 engine block PHOTOS: COURTESY LIFESAVER, COURTESY MERCURY RACING…
