TAX PACKAGE TAKEAWAYS FOR BOATERS

WELL, 2018 IS IN full swing now. If you’ve managed to keep your resolutions so far, congratula-

tions. If not, better luck next year. The Los Angeles, Seattle and Vancouver boat shows are behind us or soon to close. The Miami International Boat Show is slated for this month, and many others will resonate locally before the season fires up. But it might be something that occurred late last year that affects the whole of 2018, at least as far and boat owners and boat builders are concerned. In December, Congress passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, the tax reform package whose passage had roiled Washington, D.C., for months. Even while the bill was being formulated, the National Marine Manufacturers Association was involved, looking out for the best interests of boat buyers, boat owners and the boatbuilding industry as a whole. After the bill was signed by the president, NMMA provided some useful analysis that I felt was worth sharing. For boat buyers and owners, general benefits include lower individual (and married) rates and a doubling of the standard deduction, both of which could mean more money in one’s pocket. Specifically, the tax package imposed no new luxury tax on boat sales, which will definitely benefit buyers (and boat dealers). It also maintained the second-home interest deduction for boats. NMMA had been concerned the bill could unfairly single out boats, but it didn’t, though it did lower the mortgage interest cap to $750,000, from $1 million. On the builder side of things, the bill lowered the corporate rate and the pass-through rate, which, according to NMMA, many marine-industry businesses are organized as. Another provision in the bill allows for the immediate expensing of short-lived capital investments, which should encourage reinvestment and growth. Last — and this should be of interest to boat buyers, because builders have been doing a lot of it in the last five or six years, since emerging from the depths of the Great Recession — the bill preserved the R&D tax credit. Builders can continue to experiment with hull shapes and forms; electronics manufacturers can continue to improve the already-impressive capabilities of fishfinders, radar, sonar, navigation suites, yacht-wide integration; engine manufacturers can keep developing engines that are lighter, stronger and more efficient. You get the picture. Some of these changes will be felt right away, while others might take years to fully be realized, but the boating industry is bound to find more new boaters, more boaters moving up, more boat owners upgrading their propulsion and/or electronics.

LOVE’S IN THE AIR

Naming a boat is a very personal endeavor, and people frequently name boats with a loved one in mind. While people’s names are touching transom tributes, we wanted to find some other boat names that fit with the Valentine’s Day theme. It is February, after all. Here are a few we found:

A

REGULATOR IS CELEBRATING ITS BIRTHDAY, AND BOATERS ARE REAPING THE REWARDS.

Anglers looking for an upgraded center console can take advantage of Regulator Marine’s 30th anniversary to score a fishing machine with new features. The Regulator 41 has been a solid fishing platform for the builder, often equipped with three or four outboards, for when speed is necessary, but the already well-equipped sportfisher picked up some new bling.

Most notable is the standard Seakeeper gyro, which virtually eliminates roll underway and while drifting or at anchor. The helm — fully equipped with up to three 17-inch MFDs, a Yamaha CL7 touchscreen display, Helm Master joystick control, an Edson wheel and a lot more — is fronted by triple captain’s chairs and is now climate controlled. A starboard dive door delivers easy boarding, a forward settee is big enough for two people to lounge on and has storage underneath, and the console houses a double berth, a galley and an enclosed head with a shower. For fishing, there’s a deluxe tackle center with a grill in the cockpit and an 84-gallon fishbox and two 40-gallon livewells in the transom, and a transom shower. Forward are twin 54-gallon insulated fishboxes/dry storage and a 156-gallon in-deck fishbox/rod storage. A tower with another driving station is optional and adds to the fishing amenities. Rod holders abound, and the coaming pad encircles the interior, for thigh-saving comfort all around. Bracketed to the swim platform are four Yamaha F350s. That’s 1,400 hp of throttle-controlled fury — Yamaha tests yielded a 63.5 mph top speed — that can also be surprisingly gentle in close quarters when controlled by the joystick. One of Yamaha’s newest innovations, Set Point, allows operators to select one of three modes — for stationary fishing, drift fishing or keeping station while waiting for a bridge or a fuel dock to open — and let the engines and the GPS do the rest.

LIGHTKEEPER (FOR A NIGHT)

IN THE STRAIGHT BETWEEN San Francisco Bay and San Pablo Bay, boaters may have cruised past East Brother Light Station (ebls.org), a Victorian lighthouse that’s located due west of Point San Pablo Harbor and presents an interesting opportunity. People can book a night in one of four rooms located in the lighthouse itself (an additional room is available in the Fog Signal Building), and each stay includes planned meals and a historical tour of the lighthouse.

QUIZ

WHICH WAY?

THERE IS A SMALL and often unnoticed island that is the last stop for U.S. Navy ships heading west to get munitions, fuel and food. Indian Island Naval Magazine is the only deep-water ordnance facility on the West Coast with no access restrictions, such as low bridges or shallow water. The island in northern Washington can be spotted by its unique magazines that look like igloos, just two miles south of Port Townsend’s downtown. It’s also a refuge for wildlife, with the vast majority of the island being untouched forest.

DIRECTIONS ON A boat could be confusing if there weren’t some standard terminology. Port and starboard eliminated the “Is that my left or your left?” conversation, but there are many other nautical terms indicating directionality while underway. Which one of these is not a real term? ƒƒAbaft: Toward the stern of a ship, or farther back from a location. ƒƒAft: Toward the stern of a ship. ƒƒAlee: On or toward the lee. ƒƒAloft: The stacks, masts, rigging or other area above the highest

solid structure. ƒƒAloof: Away from the crewmember who talks too much.

ANSWER: Obviously the last one, “Aloof,” is not a true directional term for boating. 10  SEAMAGAZINE.COM  FEBRUARY 2018

MEXICO REPORT

5 EASY PIECES

Between La Paz and Puerto Escondido are a handful of rewarding winter stops. LA PAZ IS A beautiful historic port city and the capital of Southern Baja. It’s a lovely elongated

beach resort at the southeast end of the Sea of Cortez. For yatistas (recreational boaters), La Paz offers so many nautical services — five full-service marinas, five haulout and repair yards, many chandlers — that nearly 6,000 liveaboard boaters from the U.S. and elsewhere have made it their homeport away from home, staying for months and even years. Since La Paz is the Gateway to the Sea of Cortez, what follows are what I call “Five Easy Pieces,” small and remote but rewarding stops that should be part of any cruising itinerary between La Paz and Puerto Escondido. Yacht services are available on both ends, but not in between. Yet, I consider this remote 115-mile stretch to be the most interesting cruising grounds on the Pacific side of Mexico. Each of the Five Easy Pieces has overnight anchoring potential during winter cruising season, when prevailing conditions are from the north. Boaters who watch the weather can plan to spend at least a few days to a week or more in each place. I’ve included a few intermediate or alternate stops too.

Partida Cove Only 27 miles from downtown La Paz, the three-island Espiritu Santos Islands chain is uninhabited yet provides 22 separate coves — all with dramatic geology, white sand beaches and good holding for overnight anchoring in multiple places. Partida Cove is the favorite first stop. The whole island chain is a Natural Marine Park, so a current SEMARNAT permit

lets boat owners anchor, and then take out the kayak, snorkel dozens of reefs and hike the easy trails. Day-excursion pangas and rendezvous from La Paz frequent this island’s San Gabriel, La Raza and Partida coves. To work north toward Amortajada on Isla San Jose, Partida Cove and Ensenada Grande make good stepping stones, as does “The Hook” anchorage on Isla San Francisco.

Amortajada Amortajada Lagoon, 23 miles from Espiritu Santos, is a triangular estuary that projects two and a half miles west-southwest from the south end of Isla San Jose’s mountainous profile. Punta Ostiones (Oysters) Light marks the west corner, but the whole lagoon is bounded by a unique linear sand berm (about 15 feet high) that allows entrance by dinghy or panga only at one or two cuts. Amortajada means shrouded. Inside are four square miles of shallow, sheltered waters, 20-foot trees, marshes and a one-and-a-quarter-mile channel that’s ideal for exploring, bird watching, swimming, and fishing by kayak or dinghy (quiet motor to protect wildlife). Vacate the lagoon at sunrise or sunset when blood-thirsty “noseeums” show up. Anchor in the commodious mile-wide Bahia Amortajada almost anywhere northwest of the lagoon and east of the white pinnacles of Isla Cayos. Alternates on Isla San Jose: Salina or Cazadero points.

across the 3.4-mile-wide channel from Isla San Jose. Evaristo villagers tend goat herds, fish from pangas and operate the salt works on the north slope of the 300-person village. Anchorage choices are (a.) anywhere off Village Beach or (b.) nearby inside the uninhabited rectangular North Cove, where the tinkling of goat bells may serve as a morning wakeup call. In case of a south wind, choose Village Beach. Evaristenos are friendly. School kids love to practice speaking English with visiting boaters. They may greet you on the beach or zoom by your boat and offer to sell you a fresh fish or half a kilo of fresh goat cheese.

Agua Verde Crystal turquoise water over white-sand bottoms and pleasant winter anchorages draw us to Agua Verde, 45 miles from

Evaristo. Anchor off the tongue-in-cheek “yacht club” beach in the bay’s northwest corner or east of Pyramid Rock. The fishing villagers of Agua Verde tend a few pigs and operate Maria’s, a part-time store. Lucky boaters will sometimes find fresh-baked empanadas, which are tasty half-moon-shaped pastries filled with cheese, fruit or meat. Anyone who plans to stay two or three days can ask the matron of the store if she’ll make a dozen. Where’s the store? Land on the southeast end of the palm-studded beach in front of the village, walk 300 yards inland and ask anyone, Donde esta la tienda? Or ask Se venden empanadas hoy? Tip: Don’t bring dogs ashore here; the pigs run loose.

Isla Danzante Primera This island looks like a dragon with its

snout just above sea level swimming north. At 20 miles from Agua Verde and only two and a half miles outside Puerto Escondido, Danzante Island is what most folks use to avoid entering the complex harbor entrance after dark. Honeymoon Cove on the northwest corner of Danzante Island is an easy-in and easy-out anchorage, so it’s a popular daysail from Puerto Escondido. Honeymoon Cove has three picturesque lobes, each big enough for only two boats to swing; many boaters drop the hook just outside the lobes. The warm water and pristine sand bottom are perfect for novice snorkelers to get comfortable. Tiny silver guppies may peek at their reflection in a dive mask or nibble cheese morsels from divers’ fingers. Two similar anchoring spots within a mile south of Honeymoon are dubbed Denouement Cove and Divorce Cove. Or, six miles south of Isla Danzante, Candeleros Cove has shelter from south wind and a yatista-friendly hotel. Finally, Puerto Escondido (Hidden Port). Here, boat owners can top off diesel tanks, fill the outboard, grab a mooring out in the landlocked Main Bay, or get a full-service marina slip, all from Marina Puerto Escondido. They can also haul out for repairs or secure dry storage, thanks to the 65-ton lift. The two-story blue-glass marina complex (formerly a Fonatur marina) houses a small grocery store, a couple of restaurants, showers, a coin laundry, a cruisers lounge, a library and the marina office. One mile inland is Tripui RV resort, which includes a small hotel, a restaurant and RV storage. The town of Loreto is 15 miles north, off Highway 1, and has a busy panga basin and a passenger loading dock for small excursion ships, but no marina for yachts. The airport a mile south of Loreto has flights to the U.S. on Alaska, Calafia and other airlines. SEAMAGAZINE.COM FEBRUARY 2018

Cathedral IN NATU R E

Princess Louisa Inlet is out of the way but well worth the effort to visit.

By Ed Lee

Sheer, forested mountain slopes rise 6,000 feet above us as we glide by on Prince of Wales Reach. Our chart indicates a depth of 2,100 feet! The weather is calm, sunny and warm. Princess Louisa Inlet, our longdreamed-of destination, is close at hand. Good friends. Good weather. One of the most beautiful places on Earth. That’s a recipe for a perfect cruise. From our earliest days dreaming about cruising in the Pacific Northwest, we were aware of Princess Louisa Inlet. Boating acquaintances who had traveled extensively talked excitedly of the remote gem. So as we researched potential cruising destinations, Princess Louisa Inlet quickly rose on our priority list. The inlet is shrouded in legend and intrigue, and stories abound of its beauty, remoteness and awe-inspiring scenery. We credit the magical inlet, featuring whimsical Chatterbox Falls, as one of the primary reasons we became interested in the liveaboard lifestyle. We had to experience Princess Louisa Inlet from our own home. My wife, Barb, and I were in our first year of living aboard Still Waters, a 48-foot aft-cabin power cruiser. We had explored the U.S. San Juan Islands, the Canadian Gulf Islands including Butchart Gardens, and other amazing places, but Princess Louisa, our Holy Grail, was still on our list to discover. So we made a plan. September finally arrived, as did our good friends Lynn and Colleen St. Pierre from Kalispell, Mont. We set off to discover our long-anticipated destination, Princess Louisa, about 150 miles north of our Blaine, Wash., homeport.

Malibu Rapids are the last obstacle before reaching Princess Louisa Inlet, but before they could get there, the crew of Still Waters made a stop in Vancouver (top) and visited Granville Island (above).

DAY ONE, UNDER SUNNY skies and in calm seas, took us 47 miles from Blaine, around the Fraser River Delta and into False Creek at Vancouver, B.C., where we checked in with Canadian Customs. After clearing customs, we moved Still Waters to an anchorage in 12 feet of water at low tide just east of the Granville Bridge. We waited long enough to feel confident our anchor was set well, lowered the dinghy and motored to the public dock on Granville Island. A fun, bustling, eclectic neighborhood, Granville Island lies under two huge bridges that funnel traffic in and out of Vancouver. It is also home to one of our favorite restaurants, the Sand Bar, a unique establishment announced by a replica fishing boat and whose top-level patio area opens to the gorgeous Vancouver skyline. Heaters and blankets are available, but we didn’t need them on an early September evening. We arrived before dusk and dined into the evening, accompanied by the magical city lights that sparkled on the skyline.

1/2/18 11:16 AM


Back on Still Waters, we sat on the aft deck and marveled at the urban beauty, located in the middle of one of North America’s most majestic cities. We made provisioning plans over breakfast the next morning, and afterward we again took the dinghy to shore, aiming for Granville’s Public Market and its abundance of fresh vegetables, meats and fruits. Our dinghy’s waterline was definitely lower as we carefully ferried our goodies back to the boat. Once on board with our provisions stowed, we retrieved the anchor and made our way out of False Creek and proceeded north on calm seas up the eastern shoreline of the Strait of Georgia. The area is called the Sunshine Coast and on this glorious day in September, we all agreed it was well named. On our way to Pender Harbor, a trip of about 50 miles for the day, we passed many attractive bays and mountain vistas. And then… “Whales!” Someone shouted. I stopped the engines so we could observe a pod of four humpback whales off the Sechelt shoreline. They were in no hurry, rolling and lunging, but we had Pender Harbor to reach before nightfall, so I reluctantly started the engines and idled away. AROUND 8 THE NEXT morning, we cast off the lines to travel up the reaches, or arms, of Jervis Inlet. Capt. George Vancouver initially believed this waterway was the entrance to the fabled Northwest Passage, only to be disappointed when he sighted the upper end after three hard days of sailing and rowing under bad weather conditions. At 50 miles long, Jervis forms one of the largest fjords within the extensive fjord system on the west coast of British Columbia. It is made up of three main reaches: Prince of Wales, Princess Royal and Queens Reach. Off of Queens Reach lay our goal, Princess Louisa Inlet,

some 40 more miles up the reaches from Pender Harbor. Along the way is Egmont, 15 miles from Pender and just at the entrance to Skookumchuck Narrows, whose rapids can be terrifying at full flood, as speeds can reach 18 knots. The rapids at Skookumchuck are claimed to be the fastest tidal rapids in the world. Many boaters stop here to watch the impressive overfalls and whirlpools. PRINCESS LOUISA INLET IS accessible only by plane or boat. No roads offer access to this remote gem. To make it even more inaccessible, Malibu Rapids present a final challenge to boaters, who must successfully transit the rapids before arriving at their goal. Our boating plan was to reach the rapids, a trip of 40 miles, in time for high slack, at 2:30 p.m. Malibu Rapids can run faster than 9 knots at peak, so timing is important. Anyone who wants to run the rapids must arrive ahead of slack water and successfully

navigate the rapids into the inlet, because there are few places to anchor outside the inlet for owners who miss the tide change. After a boat transits the rapids, its crew still has to travel four miles to secure a place on the dock at the base of Chatterbox Falls, at the head of Princess Louisa Inlet. We arrived about 30 minutes before slack water. I shut down the engines, and Still Waters drifted with the slow-moving tide as we waited. From our vantage point, we enjoyed a great view of Young Life’s Malibu Camp, a Christian youth camp that is one of Young Life’s most popular camps among more than 30 worldwide. The story of Malibu Camp and the area in general is a good read; I highly recommend “Through the Rapids,” by Charles William Hitz. It documents the history and antics of the colorful characters who pioneered this fascinating area. A camp boat from Malibu Camp came roaring up and through the cut, thus loudly announcing the beginning of slack water. The pilot obviously knew what he was doing and had power to spare. We joined six other boats that were also awaiting their chance to enter this intriguing inlet. Captains are asked to announce a “Securite” via VHF radio before transiting the rapids, and it’s obvious why. The cut is definitely one-way only, so good communication is a must, to avoid a potential catastrophe. Remember, boats leaving the inlet have the right of way. Exiting the rapids upstream, we were awestruck by the scene that opened to us. Huge granite-topped mountains, capped with snow, surrounded the serene waters of the inlet. The head of the inlet, our destination for the next couple of days, was situated four miles to the northeast of Malibu Rapids. The inlet and surrounding land comprise Princess Louisa Marine Provincial Park, established in 1965 and managed by BC Parks with the cooperation of the Princess Louisa International Society. A 250-foot guest dock is large enough for several boats, depending on their size — 55 feet is the maximum — and dockage is free; however, the park encourages a $20 donation to help offset costs, and space is available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Malibu Camp’s buildings (above) are visible to boaters waiting for slack tide at Malibu Rapids so they can transit the rapids and enter Princess Louisa Inlet. At Pender Harbor (right), visitors get directions to locations near and very far. Chatterbox Falls (below), at the head of the inlet, live up to their name.

There is no electricity, and non-potable water is available on the dock. Anchoring is limited, because the sheer drop-off of the mountainsides continues to depths of more than 500 feet. Anyone who wants to drop the anchor must do so close to shore, and many boat owners prefer to anchor at the mouth of Chatterbox Falls. Fortunately, our timing was good. We found room at the dock, tied Still Waters securely to it and went off to do some exploring. CHATTERBOX FALLS IS BEAUTIFUL and boisterous; hence, the name. On its way to the ocean, the runoff drops 5,000 feet from the mountains above, finding its way over numerous falls and pools until emerging above the inlet and dropping more than 100 feet — within misting distance of the dock and the anchored boats. Photo opportunities abound at the base of the falls. The teepee-style MacDonald Memorial Shelter is nearby and offers two picnic tables and a fire pit. Toilets are also available, and so is non-potable water. For the hardy hiker, a trail leads up the mountainside to Trapper’s Cabin. The steep trail is strewn with tree roots and boulders, and for most of the year, mud makes it a serious challenge. This is not a hike for the timid. I first became aware of the old cabin while reading Muriel Blanchet’s “The Curve of Time,” a great book set in the 1920s and ’30s. It chronicles the story and adventures of a woman and her children who explore the coastal waters of British Columbia. She doesn’t mention ever meeting the “trapper,” and I have not come across any more detail than “a cabin’s remains sitting high above Princess Louisa Inlet.” Signs warned of the difficult and potentially dangerous trail; however, the challenge was irresistible. Lynn and I decided to give it a try and see how far we could make it. We loaded our packs with water, snacks, cameras and layering clothes, and we set out at 10 a.m. Up and over, down and around, we made our way. The trail wasn’t long, but it was steep, rising around 1,800 feet above the waters of the inlet. The trail wound through typically dense Northwest forest, where ferns, moss and

Congratulating ourselves on the successful climb, we ate lunch at the base of a waterfall.

lichen-covered rock abounded. Cool mountain air and fragrant earthy scents filled our noses. After two hours of climbing, including many breaks to enjoy the scenery and catch our breath, we were suddenly looking at the remains of the old cabin! Congratulating ourselves on the successful climb, we ate lunch at the base of a waterfall not 100 paces from the cabin. We tried to envision the life of the cabin’s original occupant and how and why he lived in this most remote of places. The view was spectacular. We could even see the mouth of the inlet in the distance. It truly was a beautiful spot that was worth the hike. We were fortunate to be there late in the season, when dry trail conditions permitted us to climb. THE NEXT DAY, WE were ready for some solitude. We found exactly what we were looking for about halfway down the inlet, behind MacDonald Island, where we anchored in 80 feet of water. It was Sunday, and we couldn’t think of a more spiritually symbolic place to reflect on how God has blessed us. The tall, steep surrounding rock walls reminded us of cathedral spires, and the intense quiet over the calm waters enhanced our morning reflection time. Young Life’s Malibu Camp facility had intrigued us when we first entered the rapids, so in the afternoon, we decided to take the dinghy over and have a look. The staff was busy closing it for the year; however, they were cheery and happy to show us around. We marveled at the rustic log woodwork and native stone from which the buildings are constructed. A large swimming pool overlooked the entrance to the rapids, and hundreds of orange and purple sea stars lined the rocks in the clear water around the pool. The main lodge houses a bookstore and an ice cream shop and deli. Luckily it was still open, so we purchased and ate some refreshing ice cream. We stood near the pool as we finished our treat and noticed a 16-foot Hobie Cat sailboat coming into view at the entrance to the rapids. We assumed the captain, who was expertly guiding the non-motored craft through the slack water

of the cut, was a Young Life guide enjoying an afternoon sail. We realized, however, that two older men were guiding the boat. They had a backpack tied to the boom, and one of the men was sitting on a suitcase. Curious to see what this was all about, we loaded into our dinghy and came alongside the Hobie, now becalmed in the inner bay. We hailed the men and learned they had sailed from Saltery Bay up Jervis Inlet over the course of three days, a run of about 45 miles. Barb and I had been introduced to boating on a 14-foot Hobie, so we appreciated what a feat that was. They were headed for Chatterbox Falls and the camping area at its base, but the wind had all but disappeared. There was no way they would make it before dark. We offered them a tow, at least to our boat behind MacDonald Island. We gave them some bottled water and grabbed their towline. When we arrived at Still Waters, there was still no wind, so I dropped off our

crew and had one of the Hobie passengers get in the dinghy with me, to lighten the tow. He told me his friend invited him on a boat trip but didn’t tell him the boat had no engine! The tow was interesting as I learned a bit about them — close friends in semi-retirement who thought it would be fun to have an adventure. The captain was having a great time and encouraged me to go faster so he could surf my wake, back and forth, as we made our way to the dock at the falls. I admit I exceeded the posted speed limit for the inlet, but for a short time I couldn’t resist their joyful exuberance. THE FOLLOWING DAY — oh, how we didn’t want to leave our little piece of paradise — we timed our departure for slack and made an uneventful 42-mile passage down the reaches in mildly choppy seas to our destination for the night at Blind Bay, between Hardy and

Nelson islands at the edge of Malaspina Strait. It’s a beautiful anchorage with many small nooks, inlets and bays. Our next destination was Secret Cove, about 20 miles to the south. We stayed to port upon entering the cove, passed by Secret Cove Marina and chose an anchorage in front of the waterside homes at the head of the cove. On our scheduled penultimate day, we planned to stop in Vancouver, a run of 40 miles, and take advantage of whatever reciprocal tie-up we could arrange. We called several yacht clubs, but it was not to be. Most members’ boats were back in port for the off-season and no tie-up for a boat of our size was available. The weather was good and the water fairly calm, so we decided to make the long passage — for us — of 65 miles to Blaine, making this our final day. After a cruise of 300 miles, friends at our home harbor helped us into our slip, a perfect ending to our travels.

READER SAYS WHAT?

FOSSIL RECORD Boat owners learn anchoring lessons.

IN THE EARLY 1990S we had a 55-foot HiStar in Fossil Bay that looked a lot

like Ed Lee’s Still Waters (September issue, “Long Night in Fossil Bay,” p. 22). It also had a CQR anchor that was a bit too light. We were anchored inside Fossil Bay with land on all sides except for the narrow opening of the entrance to the east of us. After midnight, while sound asleep, we were awakened by a gale-force westerly that was causing the blinds to clang loudly against the walls. When I went up to assess the conditions, I was shocked to see vast open water around us. We had blown clear out of the bay and had moved about 2,000 feet. I started the engines, raised the anchor and reset the anchor back inside Fossil Bay. I stayed up to see if it would hold. We moved with a steady 0.3 knots displayed on our Loran instrument all the way out of Fossil Bay until we hooked in exactly the same spot! I think that Fossil Bay must have a flat rock bottom with a thin layer of mud. This information should be made available to cruisers. Bob Trimble, via SeaMagazine.com Ed.

A LESSON I TEACH — but don’t necessarily remember at the proper time — is that a computer is just a diagnostic tool. If the screen shows no recorded faults and a problem definitely exists, then you apply your tactile senses and combine the two to resolve the problem, like I had to do with a Yamaha and an ETEC last year. Back in the good ol’ days, if your engine overheated a piston because a fuel delivery was lean, the first you knew of it was the awesome quiet as your boat settled into the water, engine unresponsive from a seized piston. When a restart was attempted, it sounded as though the battery were dead, so when the boat came into the dealer for repair, the diagnosis “battery won’t crank engine when warm” hit the repair order. Of course, nothing relevant was found at the dealer, and nothing made sense until the second or third time the owner returned, mad as a wet hen. With today’s engines, the sensors have parameters: built into the sensor is an acceptable operating range of X. The low and high sides of acceptability go +10 points, and -10 points, peaking at Y. The sensor will “watch” a water pump getting weaker as it sees the upper parameter approaching. It will note over-cooling from a thermostat stuck open. It will make notes in its mind and record them as erasable faults if the problem is taken care of. No alarm has sounded, warning you of impending trouble. Your engine is still in good shape. One day “Y” is achieved and the alarm sounds. As far as you know, that’s the first time your engine has overheated, but the computer printout registers 26 earlier instances. “How could that be?” You ask the

However, it had one niggling fault: He’d leave the boatyard, engine huffin’ and puffin’, go precisely 29 minutes toward his fishing hole and — this is a quote — “the engine would lose 10 percent of its power.” I’ll shorten this by saying that rebuilt injectors and spark plugs took care of the “H&P,” but a test run showed

dealer. “The alarm only sounded once.” He explains it, adding that the ECU or ECM (electronic control unit/module) assimilates hundreds of thousands of pieces of information a second and decides how and when it’s going to surprise you.

as described: at 29 minutes of 5000 rpm operation, the engine slowed to 4500. The drop was hardly discernible, not like dropping a cylinder. The only thing on the list of faults that was weird was the logging of an exhaust cam sensor fault some 400 hours prior, but the problem didn’t become evident until fewer than 100 hours ago. After following other paths and many emails and phone calls, we changed the sensor. Bingo. Problem resolved. Sometimes the computer won’t tell the whole story, the diagnostic program tells the tech what the computer shows, the tech tries everything he’s learned in 50 years, but the ultimate answer is to throw parts at the damned thing until something works. The ’09 175 hp ETEC was just as strange. The only thing I could pinpoint about a screen that showed absolutely no faults in more than 900 hours of operation was that the engine would suddenly slow and speed up erratically — not when I was in the boat but when I was home, an hour away. In the middle of one test run I lost communication with the ECM, a sure sign the “brain” had suffered a stroke. I ordered another ECM, used the laptop to install it, let the TPS (throttle position sensor) set itself and took a ride on a gorgeous afternoon. Half an hour later the engine started acting stupid again just after crossing a negligible wake. I checked the diagnostics, but no faults. I looked at the TPS setting: 162. Hmmm … the sucker got lazy and stopped before the optimum setting of 180 to 192. So I forced a setting of 192 (what could I lose?) with a minor throttle cable adjustment and off we went. It’s been two months now and so far it’s been okay. Apparently the wave-bump had something to do with the erratic running and the low TPS setting; I’m not bright enough to know or understand. I just know what fixed it and what to look for the next time something shows no faults. Now I have the knowledge … just as my memory starts heading downhill! If your computerized engine acts weird and the tech can’t find anything wrong — but nothing’s cured — be patient as he applies his knowledge and that of others ferreting out the problem. Computer diagnostics are not the be-all, end-all.

SEA TRIAL

By MIKE WERLING

BERTRAM 35

Anglers still have everything they need, and the family will enjoy the amenities too. At the conclusion of our ride, as we took a final look around the boat and exchanged pleasantries before my departure, a boat owner stopped on the dock and gave the Bertram 35 a solid look, up and down, fore and aft. He liked what he saw. He complimented 117 Yachts’ Dean West on the look of the boat before he said, “That’s the boat every fisherman dreams of having.” While that might be a slight exaggeration — we can’t get everyone to agree on anything — the heartfelt sentiment is indicative of the reputation Bertram built for itself on the water and off. Mostly on. When the builder ceased production in 2012, many people in the boating world were disappointed, for a couple of reasons. It appeared to be the end of an era, and it pointed to a potentially more troubling direction for the boatbuilding industry, sportfishing boats specifically. Luhrs Corp. filed for bankruptcy and was sold that same year, and still hasn’t reemerged. Cabo Yachts ceased production two years later. The trending arrow was pointing down. Then, in 2015, Bertram was back, with plans to have prototypes in the water by 2016. Those prototypes led to 2017 modelyear yachts for sale to the public, and then, on a warm December San Diego day, I was aboard a 2018 model for a sea trial. As a tribute to the original Bertram 31, which elicits nostalgia in many anglers of a certain age — I won’t say what that age

is — the 35 hits the mark. As a new yacht that is solidly placed in the modern era of lighter materials, high-tech propulsion and electronics, and advanced hull design, the 35 hits the mark there too. Our test boat was the Flybridge Sportfish version with the hardtop. It also comes without the hardtop and with fewer of the fishing features. Its molded and vinylester-infused hull is solid below the waterline and cored above it, and Kevlar is used to reinforce the keel and strakes. The deep angle of the hull carries all the way aft, softening slightly but still maintaining 22 degrees at the transom, which means the 35 can slice through waves in reverse when it’s time to fight and chase the big one, which folks might expect from a Bertram. Throw in the optional bow thruster, whose controls are built into the handles of the Palm Beach-style engine controls, and the captain can really drive in reverse. We tried it. A deep-V hull such as this can lead to some uncomfortable moments while the boat is at rest over a fishing spot, which we tested while beam-to our own wake, but our test boat had a Seakeeper 6 gyro, and with that activated, the rolling motion was virtually eliminated. It’s a $42,000 option, but if someone in the family has a propensity to seasickness, it’s the most affordable option on the lengthy list. Technology geeks will love the iPad that’s included with the boat. On it are the owner’s manuals and several apps that assist in trip

The Bertram 35 is a nice mix of fishing and cruising features, from the Palm Beach-style controls at the helm (top left) to rod storage in the cockpit (bottom right) and the salon. The main cabin (top right) houses the galley and a salon dinette. Twin sun lounges (bottom left) sit atop a large hatch that lifts to reveal the engine space (top middle).

planning, control the stereo and turn the tablet into a repeater of the screens at the helm, so people chilling in the cockpit can check out the chartplotter, engine readouts, fishfinder and more. Speaking of the cockpit, it will be the center of outdoor activity on this boat, whether that activity involves wetting a line or one’s whistle. For angling action, the cockpit is loaded. Built into the transom is a livewell with a window (an aquarium view, in Bertram’s words), built into the cockpit sole are two removable fishboxes with macerators and under-gunwale storage to either side. Four rod holders are secured in the gunwale, four more are secured to a rack on the flybridge overhang and outriggers emanate from either side of the boat. Freshand saltwater washdowns are included. Our test boat had no fighting chair, but one can be rigged if an owner so chooses. The forward half of the cockpit is a power-actuated engine-room hatch that provides good access to the twin CATs, the genset and the gyro, but atop it to both sides are boxes with removable cushions that serve as two-person sun lounges, meaning four people can easily lie back and soak in the sun or sit comfortably while waiting for a bite. Through a sliding door from the cockpit is the main cabin, which includes a starboard-side galley — drawer refrigerator and freezer, two-burner cooktop, microwave/convection oven, deep stainless sink, overhead cabinets, under-counter drawers, lots of countertop work space — and a portside dinette with a U-shaped settee around a teak table. A TV is mounted to the bulkhead forward of the dinette. Overhead is a rod locker with room for six tools of the trade. Down three steps and forward are the stateroom and the head. The offset queen berth leaves room for a nightstand and a bench seat to starboard. A TV is mounted at the foot of the berth, To create a privacy

fronted the helm, an optional hardtop was overhead and a three-sided enclosure — rigid glass forward, soft glass on the sides — wrapped around us. Other components of the hardtop package are the dual aluminum ladders, LED spreader and overhead lights, a molded radar platform and a rod-holder rack. Speeding in the shadow of the Coronado Bridge, the 35 made me wonder if the number in its name referred to its length or its top speed. We hit 35 knots — maybe a couple of tenths more — as the 500 hp CAT C7.1 diesels spun at 2900 rpm and burned 54 gph. The boat’s range is about 183 miles at that speed, given its 315-gallon fuel capacity and building in a 10 percent reserve. That range stretches to 245 miles at 2300 rpm, where speed was 26 knots and fuel burn was about 30 gph. Bumping up to 2500 rpm yielded 30.1 knots and a 224-mile range. During hard turns between 25 and 30 knots, the 35 exhibited a sporty lean, thanks

to the deep-V hull bottom, that never felt out of control or shaky, even up on the flybridge at the boat’s only helm. The back end didn’t try to slide or feel like it was correcting for some deficiency or over-steer. When I brought the wheel back to center and let the boat tackle its own wake, the hull sliced through the waves like an opposing running back through the Browns’ defense (what did Cleveland ever do to me?). As a Bertram, the 35 obviously tends more toward the fishing side of things, but it can pull double duty as a family boat. The full galley, comfortable and convertible (to a berth) dinette settee, private stateroom, head with a shower, and twin double sun lounges are obvious weekender features. Other touches — teak-and-holly cabin sole, teak cockpit, high bow railing (for safety), glass treated with V-Cool (to keep the sun at bay) all around the main cabin, gyro, air conditioning and heat, Fusion sound system — make the 35 feel more like a mini-yacht than a hardcore sportfisher. Hardcore anglers can get everything they need in a boat without alienating the rest of the family — though their ability to embellish the stories of their catches and, more importantly, their near-catches will be diminished greatly.

As it went it revealed a dinghy garage, a Williams Turbo Jet 285 tender tucked neatly away. We were at the dock, so Alexander Marine’s Pete Zaleski couldn’t drop the panel all the way to the water, but its intent is clear: It’s both a ramp for the tender — its aft end dips into the water and four sets of rollers install aft for easier tender launch and extraction — and a rather sizeable aft beach for passengers.

yacht, and for many owners it will be the signature feature on their Azimut 55S. Perhaps the most visually apparent feature of the yacht, though, is on the other end. Designers didn’t look at the bow and settle for, “You know what would be great up here? A sun lounge.” Don’t misunderstand. There is a sun lounge, and it’s big. Enough room for four people, though two or three is probably a more manageable number, despite eight cupholders. Aft of that however, is a bench seat that turns the area into a true social zone, and speakers that pipe the tunes forward amplify the bow’s entertainment quotient. Another memorable feature for 55S

The bow of the yacht (above) is a social entertainment area, as is the cockpit (top left). The main cabin includes a galley (top middle) and a dinette (bottom left). The wheelhouse includes the helm (top right) and a chaise/settee (bottom right). The bow VIP (bottom middle) is roomy and well lit.

Access to the engine room is through a hatch in the forward bench. Slide the three-panel door all the way starboard to get it out of the way, and the cockpit settee — with the addition of a small filler — blends seamlessly with the salon settee, which has a table. A dozen or more people can easily sit as an extended group starting at the transom and running to the salon, where a color combination of white, cream, taupe, gray and darker brown trim paints a modern picture. The forward section of the salon settee is a bench that serves double duty. With the push of a button, the seat lowers and

And the forward corner of the long section of the forward settee can convert to an angled headrest and turn the bench into a chaise lounge, the occupant of which can absorb the rays through the windshield and the open sunroof. To starboard, opposite the salon dinette, is the galley, which definitely has a European feel. For a long time, Azimut considered the galley a feature to be separated from the rest of the boat, either hiding it belowdecks or walling it off from the rest of the main deck.

Q. A.

avigating familiar, close-to-home waters can be challenging at times, but doing so carries with it a sense of familiarity and comfort. It’s when plans call for breaking through the imaginary border separating one’s home waters and the personal unknown that things change. More research. More planning. More prepping. More expectation. That’s the kind of stuff boat owners can handle. What about one’s insurance policy? Is it prepared to handle an extended cruise to unfamiliar waters? While restrictions still exist regarding specific countries and time-of-year cruising, boaters can easily make the adjustment and simply chart a different course as provided within their respective insurance policy. We thought of some questions boat owners need to ask before embarking on a cruise outside of their home waters and posed them to insurance industry experts. While this Q&A will certainly get boaters pointed in the right direction, it’s no substitute for policyholders talking to their agent and making sure everything is in order.

What do I have to do to expand my cruising area, at least temporarily?

  That’s going to depend on what your insurance policy provides, so the first step is to brush off the cobwebs and take a look. Then you may have to call your insurer. However, it may be simpler to address the issue right up front when purchasing a boat policy. Today, the factors used to provide a “cruising area extension” are generally as follows: >> Size and type of the boat, and its condition >> Number of engines and safety gear aboard >> Where you are going and for how long >> The experience and number of crew aboard

Q. A.

Some insurers require getting an extension every time you depart your policy’s designated cruising area. If you have a large vessel and are planning to leave your defined cruising area, you will likely need to make contact with your insurance company to secure a “cruising area extension,” which is technically an “endorsement.” This will add a nominal premium. Regardless of boat length, if you plan to leave U.S. or Canadian waters and head to Mexico, the Bahamas and the Caribbean, nearly all insurance companies require notification before they’ll give you an extension. Again, these typically do not cost that much. A special note for California boaters who frequent Mexico: They may want consider carrying an extended cruising area policy endorsement throughout their entire policy period, which makes it easier to come and go as they please. — D. Scott Croft, vice president public affairs, BoatUS

How flexible can insurance companies be if plans change?

  Some companies can change the navigation on a pro rata basis, so you only pay for the additional coverage for the time you need. However, not all companies are flexible. Make sure any navigation change is confirmed in writing by the insurance company. — Cary R. Weiner, president, Pantaenius America

Q. A. Q. A. Q. A.

What are the potential snags to cruising coverage?

  Most underwriters understand that plans can change. Presenting a new float plan and proper crew is most important when making changes. If the owner has no experience in the area he might want to navigate, and his crew is also inexperienced, that could be a reason for an underwriter to refuse to make the change.   — Gary Clausen, Twin Rivers Marine Insurance Agency

What are the basic expectations (of the boat, of the owners’ experience, etc.)?

  Insurance companies want to ensure everyone makes it home safe, and they recognize that all requests for a cruising extension are not the same. For example, going for a long weekend in Ensenada isn’t the same as running down to Puerto Vallarta. Your insurance company will likely need crew information, including their experience, the type of cruising, whether the cruise will be solo or crewed, or if you are traveling with a group. They’ll also need to know the boat’s capabilities, such as the number of engines and navigational equipment; types of safety gear, such as harnesses, EPIRBs, radar reflectors, MOB gear and life rafts with capacities; and/or rigging and sail condition. They may ask for a rigging or sailing inspection to ensure the vessel in good condition. If you don’t get your extension, ask your insurer why and see if there are other actions you can take to get them to a “yes.” — Croft

What else should policyholders know?

  I would simply advise them to contact their broker well in advance of doing the extended cruising, and the broker should be able to give them advice on whether or not they will be able to get the navigation extension, what the specific requirements would be and what, if any, additional premium would be charged. On the East Coast, most of the restrictions are based on whether or not the insured wants to be south of approximately North Carolina during hurricane season. Outside of hurricane season, it would be fairly routine to extend coverage for Florida and the Bahamas; however, if the vessel will remain south during the storm season, there are often additional requirements, such as a hurricane plan; with larger vessels, a full-time captain may be required. — Dave Kauffman, president, Anchor Marine Underwriters Inc. An expectation of the insured would be that the carrier is able to assist with their requested scope of navigation and provide all necessary information required to amend the policy upfront, without going through hoops.   — Janet Bianco, senior vice president, Pantaenius America Some policies must be written in the state in which the boat is kept for the majority of the year. For example, a boat that is used in North Carolina for seven months and Florida for five months must be written on a North Carolina policy. The boat can then be used in both states and anywhere else in the U.S. or Canada.   — Rick Stern, boat product manager, Progressive Insurance

Some companies can change the navigation on a pro rata basis.

SEVEN TIPS ON CRUISING EXTENSIONS BoatUS offers these seven tips for boat owners considering pursuing a cruising extension: 1  A large number of “multiline” (car/home/boat) insurance companies only offer extensions for U.S. and Bahamian waters. Owners cruising outside these regions in the future will have better luck with a marine specialty insurer. 2  In the Caribbean, Nov. 1 is the kickoff of the cruising season, which runs through June. During hurricane season,

most insurance companies will require the boat be brought back to home waters or stored on land. Owners who choose the latter should be prepared to answer questions about their boat’s hurricane plans, such as its location (above mean high tide), how it’s secured to ground and who is responsible for its care in their absence. The Alaska and Nova Scotia cruising seasons traditionally begin May 1. 3  For offshore passages, some insurance companies require a minimum of four or five experienced crew. For older owners who may have physical limitations, insurance companies also like to see a balanced crew. 4  Offering safety in numbers, rallies and regattas can be an opportune time for a novice to get a

“foot in the door” on long-distance cruising. They also offer formalized safety planning and a highly organized approach that is appealing to first-time cruisers.

• Pantaenius.com • Progressive.com/boat

5  Have a safety equipment list ready when applying for a cruising extension. The basics include an EPIRB, electronics (SSB radio, radar), a life raft, harnesses and select spare parts. 6  Some insurance companies will require a “condition and value” survey, a rigging survey or an engine survey before they will issue an extension. 7  Boaters who go into Mexico will need a special

Mexico Liability policy in addition to their boat insurance policy. This is true if they drive there by car, RV or on the water by boat.

Don’t Fear the Refit SAN DIEGO HAS BECOME A VERITABLE MECCA FOR VESSEL FACELIFTS BY OFFERING A BROAD SCOPE OF SERVICES AND A DEEP TALENT POOL CAPABLE OF MAKING THE OLD NEW AGAIN. BY ZUZA NA PROCH AZK A

Are you feeling itchy about your existing boat and considering a new one, but the thought of buying and learning another vessel gives you hives? Plus, you love your boat. What if you could have the boat you love and know inside out, and have it feel new to you?

When it comes to boatyards that can handle small tasks, total refits and more, San Diego has its share. Marine Group Boat Works is one such yard. It’s capabilities include lifting and cleaning large yachts (top), and taking a well-known local boat that had seen better days and turning it into a gem (bottom and opposite). 42  SEAMAGAZINE.COM  FEBRUARY 2018

The learning curve would be

flatter. The expense most likely would be lower. And the input? All yours. And there’s no success story like a custom job that’s a reflection of exactly what you want — whether it’s your boat or another older vessel that’s caught your eye. It’s just a refit. Easy peasy, right? Actually, yes. One such success story is Crystal, a 112-foot Deep Sea Marine motoryacht that underwent an extensive refit in San Diego.

Background “Built in San Pedro of military-grade steel, she is really well known and has an interesting history,” Fraser Yachts’ Neal Esterly said of the iconic vessel. “She has cruised from Alaska to Nova Scotia, has chartered and at one time carried a sea plane.” Crystal fell on hard times when a previous owner lost her to the bank, but her captains speak well of her. “She is the classic long-range yacht fisher that a lot of people respect and would like to own,” Esterly said. “Buying an older boat makes a lot of sense,” said Todd Roberts, president of Marine Group Boat Works. “You can usually expect to get more boat for your money, with the added benefit that during a refit of it you’ll learn where all the bodies are buried.” Crystal’s captain, Jerry Giacalone, agrees. “There are a lot of local resources [in San Diego], and with the right connections, there are lots of opportunity for savings, even on big projects.” Crystal was a big project. She was hauled, stripped to bare metal and painted. Her teak decks were replaced, and she got two new 77 kw John Deere gensets and a state-of-the-art electronics suite. She was then rewired and mostly re-plumbed. And then the serious work started: changing the interior and tweaking the layout to create a whole new ambiance and experience on board. Joe McCarter of J. W. McCarter & Associates, a high-end residential design firm, was tapped to do the interior. It was McCarter’s first yacht project, but he took to it like a duck to water. “The biggest challenge was the use of space and the need for access points to systems,” he said. “It’s made me rethink all my land-based projects, too, because you have to be so efficient on a yacht.” The owner spent a summer cruising Crystal before the refit, to get a feel for exactly what he wanted to change. Then, although hands-on, he remained mostly remote, wanting to be surprised by the transformation of the finished product. He was, and he loved it.

A New Hub San Diego makes a lot of sense for refits. Key competition is Ensenada, Mexico, and Seattle. For big boats that are migratory, Ft. Lauderdale also competes. But the West Coast has its advantages. First is the weather. Work can be done year-round in California. Second is access to a huge network of highly skilled contractors and a healthy supply chain, with marine suppliers and chandleries on just about every corner of the waterfront. Then, there’s convenience and cost. “Ensenada has higher lifting capacity than we have here, but then we have easier access to top-quality equipment without import hassles and expenses. And there’s no language barrier,” Roberts said. “Also, the labor and tax rates here are lower than in Seattle and moorage is cheaper than in Florida, where slips for big boats are expensive and hard to find.” Giacalone agreed, saying he priced Ensenada Crystal underwent a total refit that for the basic stuff. “But once you factor in travel, expanded and updated the helm, gave hotels, gas and simply the time, you’re better off the main salon a modern facelift and being close to home,” he said. “Most owners have made the bar area nightclub-worthy. more money than time.” And it was all local talent that made it happen. Finally, there’s the “fun factor.” It’s easy to

convince a crew to spend time in San Diego where there’s lots to do. For yachts on the South Pacific circuit, spending a few weeks or months in San Diego is convenient, and the crews full of Kiwis, Aussies and South Africans who staff many of the big vessels like spending time in Southern California.

Economic Impact San Diego has become a destination for owners and captains, because the resources run the gamut: painting, yacht finishing, carpentry, mechanical, electrical, electronics, custom stainless, canvas fabrication, steel and fiberglass repair, HVAC (chillers, pumps and air handlers), desalination, galley equipment and design. Plus, owners can take care of provisioning, crew uniforms and staffing for the finished product. If it’s needed on or for a boat, it’s in San Diego. And the impact on the local economy is substantial. Roberts said that for every $1 spent in the marine industry, seven more are generated within the community. He provided examples of how the money flows beyond boats. “We booked 397 hotel room nights and 560 rental car days last year for people who visited their boats during a project,” Roberts said. “Crews and owners are spending on hospitality, entertainment and logistics during the repair process.” Per Roberts, yacht owners and crews spent $45,000 on wine for provisioning, so spending goes well beyond marine equipment, to things such as soft goods, bedding, tackle, food, flowers and so on. “These aren’t guesses, they’re audited results from Florida, and I think our numbers are actually higher here,” he said. Such monetary infusions translate to jobs at every level. “I think there are maybe more than 700 people working in the San Diego marine industry,” Roberts said. “And these are skilled, high-paying jobs for people who take those incomes and spend it locally on other goods and services.” Boats getting facelifts are like winning the economic lottery for San Diego and its populace. The U.S. Superyacht Society estimates that almost 10 percent of the total cost of a refit gets injected back into the local economy, well beyond direct SEAMAGAZINE.COM  FEBRUARY 2018  45

15 Reasons San Diego Is a Good Choice for a Refit 1.   Southern California weather makes

year-round work easy.

2.   San Diego has more and bigger boat-

yards for larger projects than what’s available in Florida, and big yards can do big jobs quickly. 3.   San Diego has a huge network of skilled subcontractors. 4.   California is perfectly positioned between popular cruising destinations in Mexico, Alaska and the South Pacific, and work can get done on the shoulder seasons as boats move north/ south and east/west. 5.   San Diego is an obvious stop for migratory yachts and charter traffic that come from the South Pacific on their annual circuit. 6.   The well-trained employee pool is sustained year-round thanks to work on commercial and military vessels to fill in gaps. 7.   San Diego labor rates are lower than in Seattle and are on par with Ft. Lauderdale. 8.   Moorage in San Diego is more affordable than in Florida. 9.   The marine supply chain is well developed; marine stores are everywhere and major brand equipment is easily sourced. 10.   Aussie, Kiwi, South African and American crews love San Diego; there’s a lot to do, so they don’t mind a layover. 11.   The local talent pool is deep and possesses good technical and carpentry skills. 12.   For Americans, there’s no language barrier. 13.   There is no problem with taxation on the importation of equipment. 14.   For Americans there is no problem visiting the boat, because they stay in-country. 15.   The labor pool is not stretched seasonally like it is in Florida, so you get good focus any time of the year.

marine repair dollars. This represents guest and crew expenditures, provisioning, entertainment and crew training (and excludes fuel, dockage, repair, marine equipment, regulatory fees, insurance, freight, etc.). So on a $1 million refit, nearly $100,000 flows to people who may have never set foot on a boat and don’t derive their living from one — except that they do. Of note is this: Most of these jobs go to small companies and individual proprietors, and that’s what makes up most of the U.S. economy overall. Per Esterly, Crystal’s project dropped more than $2.5 million into the local economy, and that excludes the vessel’s purchase price. Ten percent of that is a lot of grocery money.

Starting Point: the Boatyard So, you’re convinced to do a refit but don’t have a clue where to start. A good yard should be the first step. Marine Group Boat Works is one of several boatyards in the area and has an enormous yard in San Diego and one in Cabo San Lucas. The company employs 225 people; one-third focus on yacht repair and refit and one-third on the new construction of vessels 60 to 200 feet. Leveling the workload between seasons, the yard also does commercial and military vessels, so the workforce is gainfully employed year-round. “We have seven full-time project managers and we work with owner representatives like captains as well,” Roberts said. “Crystal spent a total of six months in the yard for the big and dirty projects. The rest was tackled at the dock in a marina.” Roberts has advice for boat owners considering a refit. “Communication is everything,” he said. “Bad news doesn’t get better with time, so it’s best to lay the groundwork early with a detailed scope of project, a timeline and a budget, and then keep talking. We’re big-boat specialists and we understand owners. We know that schedules mean something, so we communicate.” Marine Group Boat Works is more than a yard. It’s also a dealer for Miele appliances and Zodiac tenders. Roberts calls attention to the selection of quality products his team can furnish all the way down to their concierge service that will provision the boat, dress the crew and buy the flowers for the owner’s arrival. “All this can be done with a call to one guy, and that sets owners and captains at ease.” Roberts offered tips for working with yards. “Get an understanding of the yard’s manpower and ask how it will be allocated to your project,” he said. “Get a schedule, a list of contractors — both in-house and from the outside — and get a breakdown between labor and materials costs. That helps unwind any BS really quickly.” Remember, when it’s time and materials, the owner takes the risk. And when it’s a fixed cost, the yard takes the risk, so weigh your options and understand the deal.

San Diego makes a lot of sense for refits.

Project Management and Finding Resources No captain? No problem. Or so says Fraser’s Esterly, who touts the availability of resources. But unless you’re very hands on, you’ll need at least a good project manager to get you through the day-to-day grind and to connect you with local contacts. Yards often have their own project managers, but owners can hire an independent one from the many captains, engineers and managers available for projects or day work. Word-of-mouth is the best way to secure referrals, but that can be slow and

laborious. A faster method may be to start with TheLog.com/boatyards or Mariners World marine directory (MarinersWorld.com) and make a few calls. Then once the conversation is going, follow the network to the people you need. Other good sources are brokers who represent the kind of vessel you’re refitting, and there’s always talk on the dock. “You can get a lot of information from yacht finishers,” Giacalone said, mentioning Morton Marine. “As they do washdowns, varnish and basic maintenance, they get to know a lot of contractors they can recommend.” Getting to know San Diego’s network will also save money. “You can start with the yard, but many marinas down here let you bring in your own contractors and that is a much more cost-effective way to get long-term projects done,” Giacalone said. “Direct relationships mean no markup.” Giacalone spent much of his career at Knight and Carver, so he’s plugged into the local workforce, and that made Crystal’s refit go smoothly. “I used people I worked with for years, like Jay DeCarolis at Top Notch WoodWork,” he said. “I’ve come to know people I can trust, and when something goes wrong, I know where to go to fix it.” Not everyone has a Jerry Giacalone, but a bit of research can lead a boat owner to a resource he will trust.

The Pretty Parts Numerous design firms specialize in yacht interiors, but as mentioned before, Crystal’s new layout and aesthetic are attributed to a residential designer, Joe McCarter, who gutted the salon and in place of the dark bar to port added a dining area with a drop-lid feature that covered some necessary plumbing overhead. The backdrop consists of blue ice tile that approximates a flowing waterfall. To balance this feature, McCarter added a lighted display cabinet to starboard, showcasing the owner’s collection of fishing reels. The galley was completely redone with Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances. A lighted bar topped with German frozen glass that changes color to suit the mood was added. Seemingly acres

camera feeds from every remote corner of the vessel. The Portuguese bridge outside has controls at the wing stations from which the visibility is excellent for docking. And outdoor deck space abounds, including the large second deck — where the owners can lounge when the tenders are placed in the water — and the California deck, or upper cockpit, that overlooks the fishing action below. Every detail was considered, from the iStone vessel sinks in the master head to the spa that’s set into the foredeck. All this took a small army of contractors. McCarter’s land-based connections came in handy as a supplement to the usual marine sources. “San Diego — Southern California in general — has a large selection of equipment and furnishings produced and installed by skilled people. Everything from woodwork and upholstery to tiling and art,” he said. McCarter noted how challenging yacht work is, thanks to its small spaces where everyone works on top of one another and a yacht’s special place in the owner’s life. “Yachts are much more personality driven, so it’s critical to have a good captain or project manager,” he said. “Yachts require a different approach because that’s where you go to relax — here’s where you’re spending your money on yourself.”

Fun Time Per Giacalone, Crystal’s refit took about 18 months, not all in the boatyard and not all at one time. She left on voyages and returned when more work was scheduled. No sooner was Crystal finished than she went up for sale with Fraser Yachts in San Diego. Having owned an 82-foot Hatteras, the owner took on Crystal because he saw potential in the boat. Now he’s looking for another model perhaps 30 feet longer. It seems he’s always up for a project. “The owner is a longtime boater who won the Bisbee in his previous boat,” Esterly said. “His motivation for selling is that he had a fun time doing the refit and wants to move up to a larger boat.” Having a “fun time” doing a refit? Yes, it’s possible, and you don’t even need to have a boat to start with. You can target an older boat with good bones, and with the right people, you’ll still get exactly what you want.

QUICK ESCAPE

A REFUGE AND OASIS

In Viner Sound on Gilford Island, boaters can enjoy the natural bonuses of boat life at this simple and quiet getaway. STORY AND PHOTOS BY DEANE HISLOP

AFTER CELEBRATING THE LAST FEW days of Canada Day in the Broughtons at Pierre’s in Echo Bay and July 4 at Sullivan Bay Marina with friends, we were in need of some time on the hook. Arlene and I decided a couple of days in Viner Sound would be the perfect location to fulfill our requirements. We woke up to a heavy mist but the weather didn’t dampen our spirits. As we guided Easy Goin’ east in Sutlej Channel, the visibility dropped to about a quarter of a mile and the mist turned to a good old Northwest downpour. But by the time we arrived in Viner Sound, the rain had stopped and the July sky hung with heavy clouds over the narrow

three-mile-long sound. As Easy Goin’ took us inland, we were feeling a bit boxed in by the steep, lush, green hillsides on our flanks, the drying mud flat at the head and the threatening dark gray clouds above. With the exception of a pod of Pacific white-sided dolphins welcoming us, the feeling was one of isolation — just what we needed after being tethered to docks for a few days. SET THE HOOK The approach to Viner Sound is free of hazards, and for the most part the sound is too deep for anchorage, except near the head. At times, strong westerlies or easterlies can find their way into the anchorage, SEAMAGAZINE.COM  FEBRUARY 2018  PNW-1

couple of crab traps in hopes of catching some of boating’s simple little pleasures, delicious Dungeness crab. ENJOY THE VIEW Viner Sound is a delightfully peaceful inlet with lush green hillsides that soar straight up and long strands of Old Man’s Beard moss that hang from nearly every tree limb. It resembles the tinsel garland hung at Christmastime. The brown muskeg-infused water is thick with organic material that has washed down the surrounding hillsides. With high tide in effect and the traps set, it was time to explore this slightly out-ofthe-way place. We were able to cross the mud flats and navigate the lower portion of the river. The area is a Kwakiutl Indian Reserve and known for its bear viewing, because they will come down to the beach in search of clams, but we had no such luck.

R E A P T H E R E WA R D S Just before sunset we decided it was time to check the crab traps. The first pot provided two keepers and the second held six monster crabs. With eight keepers, we had more than enough crab for two people for the next few days, so we pulled the traps and stowed them on board. Since it was getting late, we put the crabs in a five-gallon bucket, with holes drilled in it for circulation, and hung it overboard for the night. We reserved the cleaning and cooking process for the next day, because it was time to relax on the back deck with refreshment in hand and enjoy the end of the day. The next morning the stunning surrounding hillsides, with their lush green vegetation, were reflected in the mirror-calm water and we engaged in more recuperation, exploration, cooking and feasting.

ISLANDS OF CONTENTION Many PNW boaters have a personal history with the San Juan Islands, but the chain’s history goes way back. STORY AND PHOTOS BY DEANE HISLOP

THERE’S SOMETHING VERY SPECIAL ABOUT the San Juan Islands archipelago and its many bays, coves, beaches and forest trails. The area’s beauty inspires hundreds of thousands of boaters to visit each year. The delightful San Juans are in the northern portion of Washington state, between the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Strait of Georgia. Their natural beauty, wildlife, temperate climate, and accommodating marinas and anchorages make them a popular destination for boaters. There are approximately 172 islands in the archipelago, depending on how one counts them, but that doesn’t give any inkling of the unique role the San Juans played in the territorial ambitions of Great Britain,

Spain and the young United States at the close of the 18th century. Few visiting boaters are aware of the island’s history.

IN THE BEGINNING The San Juans are composed of two very different rock formations that were brought together by low-angle faulting and 50-million-year-old river sediments that slid over 70-million-year-old marine sediments. Most of the islands’ bedrock is sediment

At Garrison Bay, remnants of the English Camp remain to this day, some 200 years later.

that was deposited by an ancient river that flowed westward across Washington before the uplift of the Cascade Mountains. The oldest islands are marine sediments that were deposited during the Late Cretaceous Period.

FIRST INHABITANTS Long before the first Europeans sailed these waters, Native Americans used the islands as summer camps to fish for salmon, pick berries and collect clams, which were their primary sources of food. Today, visitors can still see a version of the traditional means of fishing, called reef netting, at work on some of the smaller islands. The Salish people also knew the abundance of salmon was important to the resident orcas who frequented the islands. Salmon and orcas both have important roles in the Salish culture. Not much is known about the lifestyle of the resident Salish people before the colonization period. Epidemics of smallpox and other European diseases to which they

had no natural immunity either coincided with or closely predated the physical arrival of Europeans. Smallpox Bay at San Juan County Park received its name from the Native Americans who dove into the frigid waters in attempts to rid themselves of the high fevers associated with the disease. By the time Europeans were actively colonizing the islands, most of the Native population had already been decimated.

AGE OF DISCOVERY In the late 1700s, with Great Britain claiming parts of the Pacific Northwest and Spain claiming many of those same parts, an international crisis was brewing. In 1789 the king of Spain ordered the viceroy of New Spain (Mexico) to stand firm on Spain’s claim to the Pacific Northwest. Viceroy Juan Vicente de Guemes Padilla Horcasitas sent an expedition the following year to enforce Spain’s claims. In 1790 a ship from his fleet, led by Manuel Quimper and his navigator Gonzalo Lopez de Haro, explored deep into the Strait of Juan de Fuca and discovered a group of islands, soon named San Juacanpltisolands in honor of the Mexican viceroy. The following winter, Spain proposed that the Strait of Juan de Fuca should become the boundary between England’s and Spain’s possessions. In 1791 both Spain and British

expeditions set out to map the proposed boundary area. In the process, Orcas Island was named for the viceroy (short for “Horcasitas”) and the navigator de Haro’s name was given to the Strait of Haro. The following year, George Vancouver named the Strait of Georgia in honor of King George III of England. The peace accommodation of imperial borders between Spain and England was put into place and remained that way until Spain transferred its Pacific Northwest territories to the growing United States of America in 1819. The San Juan Islands were re-charted in 1841 for the U.S. Navy as part of the U.S. Exploring Expedition, led by Charles Wilkes, and in the process Wilkes renamed many of the islands. He chose to honor many of the American naval heroes of the War of 1812, including using the surnames of Commodore S. Decatur and Capt. J. Shaw.

PIG WAR First to settle in the islands were a few British trappers, sheepherders and some Americans who were returning, disappointed, from searching for gold in Canada’s Caribou County. Americans considered the British presence an affront to their “manifest destiny.” The British believed they had a legal right to lands guaranteed by earlier treaties, explorations and commercial activities of the Hudson’s Bay Co. Nevertheless, in June 1846 the Treaty of Oregon was signed in London, setting the boundary on the 49th parallel, from the Rocky Mountains “to the middle of the channel which separates the continent from Vancouver’s Island” then south through the channel to the Strait of Juan de Fuca and west to the Pacific Ocean. Difficulty arose over language. The “channel” described in the treaty was actually two channels: Haro Strait, nearest Vancouver Island, and the Rosario Strait, near the mainland. The San Juan Islands lay between, and both sides claimed the entire archipelago.

Conflicts between British and Americans came to a head in the so-called Pig War of 1859. An American settler of San Juan Island, Lyman Cutlar, shot and killed a British-owned hog that persisted in invading the American’s potato patch. When the British authorities threatened to arrest Cutlar and evict all his countrymen from the island as trespassers, an American delegation sought military protection from Brig. Gen. William S. Harney, the anti-British commander of the Department of Oregon. Harney responded by ordering 64-man Company D, 9th U.S. Infantry under Capt. George E. Pickett (of later Civil War fame) to San Juan Island. The two sides faced off at Cattle Point peninsula for more than two months, until Adm. R. Lambert Baynes, commander of British naval forces in the east Pacific, arrived and advised Vancouver Island Gov. James Douglas that he would not “involve two great nations in a war over a squabble about a pig.” An agreement was negotiated for a joint occupation of San Juan Island. The joint occupation ended 12 years later when Kaiser Wilhelm I of Germany, acting as an arbitrator settled the dispute by awarding the San Juans Islands to the U.S. A replica of Theodore Spencer’s cabin — he was an early settler in the area — stands in the park as a reminder of the area’s past.

DARK PAST Although the islands have a tranquil feel today, that was not always the case. Colonization occurred relatively quickly moving into the 1900s. Fishing and agriculture were the major economic drivers, although the mining of lime at Roche Harbor was a major industry as well. These may have been the largest legitimate industries, but smuggling — wool, alcohol, narcotics and aliens — from Canada to the U.S. was also a booming trade of the day. The complex waterways of the islands made the perfect hiding place for smugglers, especially during the Prohibition Period. There are stories of enterprising islanders who found easy ways to obtain large amounts of illegal liquor. The islanders would sneak up on the smuggler’s watchmen, knock them unconscious and set fake signal fires, which caused the smugglers to dump their hooch overboard. After the smugglers quickly left the area, the islanders would run out in their boats and retrieve the moonshine.

CALIFORNIA REGIONAL SECTION // SEA MAGAZINE

EDITED BY STEPHANIE SHIBATA

Gondola rides in Southern California are popular for a romantic and unique date experience. Here he tells us, among other things, what makes a gondola ride such a memorable experience. S E A S I D E C H AT

MEET BEPI VENEXIANO Gondola Rower

BEPI VENEXIANO IS A GONDOLA rower for and the owner of Sunset Gondola (sunsetgondola.com) in Huntington Harbour. Sunset Gondola recently celebrated 10 years in the harbor, and Venexiano has been rowing gondolas for 18 years, after a friend taught him how to do it. He opened the company with imported Venetian gondolas and has been going strong since.

Sea: Please tell us more about the boats you use. Bepi: We import gondolas from Venice, Italy. The Venetian builders use eight kinds of wood to build a gondola, each wood chosen for a specific part of the boat. Oak is used for the side boards, and instead of a steam box, Venetians utilize flaming torches to heat and bend the 37-foot-long oak planks, bending and hammering and fastening as they go. There are certain bent thwarts in all gondolas where char marks are visible — the clear marks of a technique that goes back for a millennium. Other woods used include pine for the steps, mahogany for decks, walnut for the oarlock, known as a forcola, and ramin wood for the 13-foot oars. How do you steer and propel the boats? A gondola is rowed from the starboard side and with one oar. Most beginners end up going in a counterclockwise circle until they learn the basics of the art. I often say it takes three months to learn to go straight, a year to figure out you don’t know what SEAMAGAZINE.COM FEBRUARY 2018

you are doing and three years of work to become a master. You know when you have arrived when it’s subconscious and effortless, but as with any waterborne activity, the minute you feel like you are on top of things the wind and tide usually have a different answer for you. What’s the most difficult part of operating a gondola? Wind and tide. We have very strong outgoing tides in the large canals of Huntington Harbour, and if you are not careful you can find yourself rowing in place, not going anywhere. The real battle is with the wind. There have been many times when it comes out of nowhere and then it’s on. You have to give all of your effort. Conversation is not possible lest it break your concentration. Gondolas are designed to row the protected canals of

Venice, and rowing in high winds is an art within the art. What makes a successful experience? This question has many answers as it depends on the experience you come for. Are you on a day trip with grandma and the kids? Bring snacks and lots of questions for the daytime tour. Are you looking for the classic romantic ride? That happens at night after a fun day or after dinner, when the stars are out over the canals but nobody else is. It’s always a beautiful ride, but I find people bring the romance with them. In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, what is the most clever or memorable proposal you’ve seen during a gondola ride? The most memorable and oddly clever has got to be the fellow who pretended to drop the ring overboard (he dropped a

fake one) and proceeded to dive in to find the ring. A moment later with a gasp and a splash he surfaced holding the real ring (which he had secured by string). The best proposal was witnessed by another gondolier, but I was there when the party returned to the dock. While under a bridge the man proposed and she, looking left, saw at that moment a swan swim up to the gondola. “Should I marry him, Mr. Swan?” She asked. The swan bobbed its head up and down, nodding yes, and she turned to her man and said yes. Why do you think the gondola experience is so innately romantic? The gondola provides a place where it’s acceptable for heads to be lain on shoulders, and hugs and bacci (kisses) are something to be expected. Call it a romantic safe space.

CLEAN HULL, HAPPY HULL

Are you doing all you can to make sure your boat’s hull is clean and efficient? A regular diver service can help. BY COTY DOLORES MIRANDA

LET’S ADMIT IT: WE DON’T always want to take the time or spend the money to get our boat’s hull cleaned, yet to skimp on it regularly, especially in Southern California, is a surefire way to slow you down in the water.

Leonard Stepien (center), the founder and owner of Omega Diving Services and Yacht Maintenance, works with his sons Tomasz (left) and Artur. CA-2

Literally. Yes, there are still intrepid boat owners who will strap on their old scuba gear and drop into the marina water to do their own hull cleaning, but as one San Diego boat-owning friend confessed, “You do it once, and then you know better.” And that’s where there pros come in. While there are a number of independent divers who’ve been at the task for years, there are also fly-bynight cleaners hanging around marina docks with their hand-lettered fliers touting their ‘years of experience’

but who end up being, well, flaky or worse. Chats with people on the docks reveal many boat owners who have tales of prices and promises too good to be true that, indeed, were. And why do we need to clean those hulls regularly anyway? (Admittedly, a somewhat rhetorical question.) Answer? Because admit it, nobody wants to putz along in the water dragging the barnacles below, nor does anyone want his boat’s hull integrity compromised. Those mussels — a spike in zebra mussels was predicted this year — hard and soft algae, barnacles and unwanted crustaceans aren’t anything boaters want breeding on their hull. And then there’s the saltwater toll on underwater metal parts. You may know it as galvanic corrosion. And when boat

company’s Shelter Island location makes it visible and convenient to Shelter Island marinas and yacht clubs. Hall said the company is proud to employ some of San Diego’s best divers, all trained to the rigorous standards of Dockside Divers and the California Professional Diver’s Association’s Best Management Practices (BMP). “We use a wide range of cleaning tools to effectively remove marine growth and fouling,” Hall said. “We work very hard to preserve our clients’ boat hulls and bottom paint, and this helps extend the life and the performance of each vessel, thus reducing overall cost to the boat owner.” He said he realizes not all boaters understand that an important and elemental component of their hull cleaning service is an inspection of all sacrificial anodes. “You have all these different metals in

The bottom line, no pun intended, is you need to schedule regular hull cleaning. owners who majored in chemistry, or at the least paid attention in class, start spouting about galvanic corrosion and electro-chemical reactions, this writer knows it’s time to let the experts speak. In San Diego, one of the premier hull cleaning service companies is Dockside Divers started in 2005 by San Diego native Brian Hall. It has grown exponentially and is now considered one of the city’s premier hull cleaning and topside care companies. In 2016 the company added partners Jarryn Hallare and Ian Murray, who had been with Dockside Divers since 2012. “These two bring valuable experience, knowledge and passion to their craft,” Hall said. “Both are excellent divers, but beyond that, Jarryn is the artist and underwater photo guy, and Ian displays an excellent business acumen and has great customer skills.” Hall estimates they clean approximately 600 vessels every cleaning rotation, which in summer is 21 days; it’s 28 days from November through April, and the

the salt water, and a lot of people don’t understand galvanic corrosion takes place instantly,” he said. “If this isn’t addressed, this can corrode your propeller, rudder, shafts, through-hulls, trim tabs — any underwater metal parts.” He explained the sacrificial anodes, installed on most saltwater vessels, are sacrificial because they’re used to sacrifice themselves to protect other more valuable underwater components on the boats, such as steel, brass and aluminum — metals more noble on the Galvanic Scale. “Actually , Dockside Divers is frontline testing the switch from zinc to aluminum alloy in our anodes,” Hall said. “They’re showing equal to or greater protection and [the alloy] is environmentally friendly.” Anode replacement varies according to the boat make, model and location. “Having an educated/trained diver inspecting the anodes regularly is critical, and Dockside Divers includes the status of the anodes in our cleaning and inspection reports, and we replace anodes when needed and recycle the old ones,” Hall said.

I have long appreciated an analogy shared by CF Koehler in a 2015 Dear Krabby column, one that he still pens for the San Diego Yacht Club newsletter. It compares anodes to horseradish. Yep, you read that right. “You said you like the horseradish (in your bloody Mary)? Well, what if I added a bunch more because you liked it — it wouldn’t turn out too well. It takes just the right amount to be tasty without putting your sinuses into spasms. The same is true with zinc anodes: too much zinc, and the electro-chemical reaction between the zinc anode and cathode becomes too strong. This reaction is a form of electrical energy that has to go somewhere. It’s not picky either — it will find its way to the salt water by de-laminating gelcoat, blistering fiberglass and paint, and de-lignifying wood. On the other end of the spectrum, if you don’t have enough zinc, then your expensive metal boat parts will be susceptible to galvanic corrosion.” See why that stays with me years later? And then there are the organisms, including nasty creatures like those various and highly abundant tube worms and other hull-fouling species of concern to Southern California marinas. A study by the University of California Cooperative Extension (UCCE) found more than 40 fouling organisms in two study sites: the inner and outer ends of Shelter Island Yacht Basin on San Diego Bay, and Santa Barbara Harbor. It determined the amount of fouling to be “significantly less” in Santa Barbara, which doesn’t bode well for boat owners in Southern California. It also determined in the 2012 study that some non-native invasive species were found to be tolerant of copper paint, which has been the saltwater boater’s go-to in the past. “In the last few years I’ve noticed an increase in fouling growth during the summer months, and that our water temperature is a bit warmer,” said Leonard Stepien, founder and owner of 24-yearold Omega Diving Services & Yacht Maintenance in San Diego’s South Bay. “I personally think the water is warmer due to climate change in the long run, combined with the current cycle we’re

going through.” Stepien, who works with his sons Artur and Tomasz, was a part-time rescue diver in Poland and worked in a copper mine. All are members of the Independent Professional Divers and work for brokers and private clients in South Bay, San Diego Bay and Mission Bay. Besides invasive species tolerating copper, there remain other risks. These hitchhikers can be transported to other waters and marinas the next time you head out for a spin, and, if not tended to by regular cleaning, can cover a copper-painted hull and thus offer a piggyback ride to the copper-sensitive species. So, do copper antifouling paints continue to control organisms, even invasive species? “There has been some adaptation to copper paint by organisms, but primarily the copper content has been reduced, which makes the paints’ antifouling properties less effective and requires more frequent cleaning” Hall said. To combat those nasty fouling organisms, a UC Cooperative Extension/Coastal Resources research piece recommends frequent and gentle cleaning to extend the life of hull coating and reduce the risk of spreading non-native fouling species. “I agree with this research,” Hall said. “In 14 years of experience, and since switching to the 21-day frequency eight years ago, we’ve seen extended life from our customers’ bottom paintings. With regard to the invasive species, removing or deterring them from growing past juvenile status definitely helps slow spreading as they don’t reach a reproductive state.” And what about the study from Australia’s James Cook University that suggested in-water hull cleaning might stimulate fouling growth? Andy Anderson of Orange County’s Anderson Hull Cleaning — marking 30 years serving Newport Beach, Huntington Beach and Dana Wharf Fishing Fleet — says, no, that’s not the case. “I’m working with the City of Newport, the Parks and Rec department, and I’d say we have more pollution with human beings throwing stuff into the drink. When we clean a dirty boat, we look behind us

and there are all these feeding fish. It’s all natural stuff we’re cleaning off.” The Santa Monica-born Anderson started diving and cleaning hulls at age 16 when his dad had a 34 Californian in Newport’s Dunes Marina. “I had half the marina at that age,” he said. “My parents used to pull me out of school to get me caught up on my route.” In 1987, the youthful entrepreneur became a union electrician, and for the next 32 years did his hull cleaning business on the side. He retired from that and in 2007 started Anderson Hull Cleaning. He

now has five employees and more than 425 boats on a 30-day year-round hull cleaning schedule. “It’s a fun job; it’s still fun, and I don’t mind being to work at 5:30 in the morning,” said the licensed and insured 51-year-old owner/diver. “Unfortunately, the downside is it’s hard to find trustworthy employees.” For hull cleaning, Anderson’s company uses 150-foot hookah hoses attached to any of his six 13-foot Boston Whalers. The bottom line, no pun intended, is you

need to schedule regular hull cleaning, for many reasons including the very life of your saltwater vessel. “Galvanic corrosion is a boater’s largest single concern. A dirty hull can be cleaned and fuel efficiency can be restored, but corrosion can destroy very valuable metals and can even sink a boat,” Hall said. “Also, what boaters don’t think about often enough is the impact you may have on your neighbors because electricity knows no boundaries. Using top-quality sacrificial anodes and having qualified divers monitor them can help

deter this constant nuisance.” “Having a professional and reliable diver is very important,” said Stepien, who has kept his Polish accent. “Divers maintain underwater parts of the boat and clean and replace zincs, if needed, to make sure there is no electrolysis. A professional diver spots any potential troubles early and communicates that to the owner.”

“A clean hull is a fast hull,” Anderson said with emphasis. “And it extends performance and fuel economy.”

BROKERAGE ADVICE

Should a good broker know people at the local boatyards? For an answer to this question, we turned to the CPYB Code of Ethics, specifically Part IV: Relations With Yacht Yards.

FEBRUARY QUESTION:

What does the broker owe me, as a seller, in the event of more than one offer being made on my yacht for sale? In Article 4 of Part II: Relations with Clients, in the Certified Professional Yacht Broker (cpyb.net) Code of Ethics, we find this answer. In the event that more than one offer on a specific vessel is made before the Seller has accepted an offer, all additional offers presented to the Broker, whether by a prospective purchaser or another Broker, should be transmitted to the Seller for his consideration. In the event that a Broker, Brokerage house or central agent has received more than one offer prior to acceptance of any offer, all offers should be presented to the Seller. The Broker shall act on the instructions of the Seller as to which offer shall be accepted and/or negotiated. If an offer is made after owner has previously accepted an offer, the owner should be made aware of its existence. This outline is a recommendation for a fair procedure for Brokers to follow when several offers are presented at approximately the same time. The procedure for handling any multiple-offer situation should be discussed with the boat’s owner. Ultimately, it is a Broker’s obligation to act as the owner desires and by whatever guidelines he decides. Whatever solution is decided by the owner, all those making offers should be apprised of it.

Article 1 Maintenance of good relations between Brokers and yacht yards is mandatory. Accordingly, the following procedures are recommended: (a) When a listing is received by a Broker, the owner should be asked by the Broker to inform the yard that the Broker has permission to show the yacht. (b) Inform the owner that any agreement he may have with the yard regarding commission is his responsibility and will not affect the Brokerage commission. (c) When showing the yacht, the Broker should check in at the yard office, show the boat without assistance unless it is essential, in which case the assistance should be paid for. The yacht should be left as it was found. (d) If the Broker is unable to show the yacht, it may be possible to make arrangements with the yard to have them show it. The yard should be advised of the Broker’s willingness to pay for the service and payment should be made promptly for such service, whether the yacht is sold or not. (e) The Broker should keep the yard informed with respect to a sale being negotiated. (f) If estimates or other services are required, the Broker or the client, as appropriate, should be prepared to pay for them and do so promptly. In summary, the Broker should do his job, not ask the yard to do it. Necessary services should be paid for promptly.
