boatyard dreamin’

A first job. Remember when you were a kid and couldn’t wait to start working? It was a first step from adolescence to adulthood. It meant money for gas, freedom and working for someone other than your grandma. Like many other naïve 16-year-olds, I was chomping at the bit to get my first job. Growing up, I fancied myself a fair swimmer—(why, I’m not sure.) I had a below average backstroke, but I still longed to spend my summers working as a lifeguard. It had it all: the sun, the water—okay, yes, the girls. I’d work on my tan while raking in the big bucks. I can still see it now… Alas, I would find employment near the water, but it was a far cry from the girl-chasing, life-saving job I lusted…

buried alive

The end of a boat’s life is usually a quiet, nondescript affair. There’s no ceremonial goodbye, no reveling in those last few diesel fumes. It’s simply part of your life one moment and gone the next. At least, that’s how it feels. But the boat isn’t just—poof—gone. It’s in a landfill somewhere across town or at the bottom of a river where it might never decompose. That’s right—never. The Rhode Island Marine Trades Association (RIMTA) estimates that between 2011 and 2015, 1.5 million boats reached “end of life” status in the U.S. With such limited national infrastructure in place for responsibly disposing of boat components, Dennis Nixon and Evan Ridley of the Rhode Island Sea Grant Program—which supports research that benefits coastal communities—started looking for a solution. “People have been talking about…

The job title “yacht designer” sounds glamorous to a lot of people. Some have the mistaken impression that we saunter around in capes, waving our arms dramatically while grand visions flow from our fingertips, leaving the messy details to lesser plebes. Rainbows and unicorns! Everyone employed in my office is a degreed engineer or naval architect who can weld, grind and laminate fiberglass. However, there are those who call themselves yacht designers when they’re really stylists, decorators or eager Adobe Illustrator jockeys hoping for some attention in the marine industry. An aspiring designer’s inexperience and desire to be different for its own sake can result in a witch’s brew of design, unbridled by the realities of physics or the sea. This manifests in a stream of concepts that are not…

risky business

For every boat sitting peacefully in its slip there’s a thief waiting to extract its MFDs with a surgeon’s precision. Or a thug wielding a crow bar with his co-conspirators a few lagoons over, trailer and truck at the ready. Both are formidable foes. However, they’re no match for the havoc a cybercriminal can wreak while cloaked in the darkness of cyberspace. A few years back at an international yacht investor conference, a “white hat”—a hacker hired to crack a network to evaluate security systems—took only 30 minutes to hack into a yacht’s myriad digital networks, including satcoms, navigation data and the personal information of every guest who signed into the WiFi network. And late last year I read a report of a superyacht’s navigation systems being hacked while underway, with…

On a bright Wednesday in St. Augustine, Florida, I was stepping onto a small green bike when a girl on a school field trip, perhaps 12 years old, stopped me. “Where are the pedals?” she asked. The answer is: There aren’t any. The Jupiter bike is a folding electric bike without a drivetrain, just a simple hand accelerator, brake and footpegs for rests. No pedaling required. “Whoah,” she said, before hurrying to catch up with her class. Feeling like a child myself, I pointed the bike down the cobblestone street and accelerated. In retrospect, cobblestone probably wasn’t the best surface of choice. I bobbed along, teeth chattering inside a wide grin. “You’ve gotta try this,” I told Deputy Editor Capt. Bill Pike. As he sped away, I knew I wouldn’t get another…
