COMEBACKS AND COMING BACK Human beings seem to love a good comeback story. People love the plucky underdog who is seemingly vanquished only to come back strong. Politics, sports, yachting, music, film. Each arena has its bottom-to-the-topto-the-bottom-and-back-to-the-top story. How else can we explain the success of beloved movie characters such as Michael Myers, Jason Voorhees and Freddy Kruger? OK, maybe film slashers aren’t the best representation of a triumphant comeback, but you know what I’m talking about. We have one such comeback story in this issue of Sea. Bertram, the longtime builder of sportfishing boats that became one measure of success among boat owners, ceased production and closed its doors in 2012. New owners emerged in 2015 and a new 35-foot model was introduced in 2017, putting the builder back in the game. Now, five years might not seem like a long enough time to grant comeback status to a company, but when Bertram stopped building there was no guarantee (or even inkling) it would be back. And time isn’t always the best measure of a comeback story’s impact. Sometimes the emotional toll is a better way to think about it, and losing a valued 4

and deeply ingrained American builder weighed heavily on folks inside and outside the industry. Turn to page 22 to read Arnie Hammerman’s review of the Bertram 61, the second model in the comeback story. In another sort of come back (two words), our cruising feature, written by regular contributor Deane Hislop, details a journey through the Broughton Islands. Hislop and his wife, Arlene, have been to the Broughtons a few times since their initial 2011 trip, and they find something new to love every time they go. Old standbys? Sure. Why wouldn’t a boater visit Pierre’s Echo Bay and Sullivan Bay during a Broughtons cruise? But new marinas, coves, anchorages and parks are always around the next island or point of land. Oh, and if you make it to Stopford Bay anytime soon and plan to wet a line, know that a giant lingcod is lurking in its depths. Hislop had it but couldn’t boat it before it spit the hook and returned to the bottom. That encounter lasted only minutes but that fish now has a comeback story of its own to share.

IT HAS A CL ASSIC Downeast profile with a bow that’s somewhere between pointed

and snub. Its three staterooms (a fourth is an option) and three heads give it bona fide weekend (or longer) chops. Its window-wrapped main cabin creates a light and airy interior whose dark wood delivers a maritime feel. The Vicem 65 IPS Classic has many features that mean it is appropriately named, but it’s fully modern too. Vicem uses cold-molding in its construction process, which puts laminated mahogany and a specifically formulated epoxy resin in the core of the hull, between an inner and outer layer of e-glass. The builder claims the process creates a lighter, stronger, quieter hull. The epoxy resin is also used to create the deck and superstructure. In another nod to modernity, the 65 IPS Classic is powered by, you guessed it, twin Volvo Penta 800 hp diesels connected to IPS1050 pod drives. With those engines, the 65’s top speed is 26 knots and it cruises at 23 knots, where its range is about 420 miles. Engine options include twin Volvo Penta IPS1200 or IPS1350 diesels. The cockpit, which is partially covered by the hardtop, includes an L-shaped sofa with a table to port and a lounge chair to starboard. Through wide sliding doors is the main cabin. An L-shaped sofa and table are to starboard, and an entertainment unit is opposite. The galley is forward to port, across from the helm and its doublewide seat. A watertight door opens to the starboard sidedeck. Headroom throughout is at least 7 feet high, including in the staterooms belowdecks. Whether an owner chooses the three- or four-stateroom version, the master is a full-beam retreat amidships. The forward VIP is almost master-worthy, so guests will feel appropriately spoiled. Vicem Yachts, vicemyachts.com

Dark wood and a Downeast profile give the 65 IPS Classic an old-school appeal, but modern electronics and IPS control provide features that are grounded in the right now.

Going the Distance  Alexis is a yacht concept in the Goliath Series of yachts from Steve Kozloff (thegoliathseries.com). Designed to be an expedition yacht, Alexis is 384 feet long, has nine decks, four Cummins QSK60-M diesel-electric engines and a range of 22,000 miles at 10 knots. No fewer than four small helicopters can fit in the hangar, and a large garage can hold two submarines, multiple tenders and assorted water toys. Two swimming pools — one on the bow and one at the stern off the owner’s suite — feature hard covers, so the pools don’t have to be drained while the yacht is underway. Heated doors and handrails minimize icing on those journeys way far north or south.

WANT TO CRUISE AROUND the globe but don’t have a boat with the legs to accomplish such a feat? What about on another boat? A ship, actually. Seabourn is a Seattle-based cruise company that is offering something special in 2020. Its Sojourn sets sail from Miami in January 2020 and will spend 146 days visiting 62 ports in 36 countries on five continents, ending its voyage in San Francisco in late May. Packages range from seven days to the whole shebang and start around $67,000 per person for the complete trip. A penthouse is significantly more. seabourn.com

East Brother Lighthouse in San Francisco Bay long ago converted to a Victorian-style B&B, at which point the lightkeepers primarily became innkeepers. Recently, the inn put out a call for a couple to be the new keepers of the light and the inn. The couple has to possess a U.S. Coast Guard commercial operator’s license and the ability to create gourmet meals for lodgers in up to five rooms. Essentially, they have to be able to navigate San Francisco Bay, conquer the vagaries of a reservation system, prepare breakfast and dinner, and snake a clogged toilet.

MEXICO REPORT

By CAPT. PAT RAINS

that are necessary for cruising in Mexico and a few that are overrated. Here I’ve identified four popular items that don’t usually work out as well as expected and 11 that are necessary, and maybe even underrated.

UNDERRATED

The cruising life in Mexico can be made easier by a sturdy dock cart, electronic flares, spare filters and Rescue Tape. A bread-maker (above right) is an amp-hour-heavy, generator-draining, overrated extra.

TAKE THIS, NOT THAT

Conserve space aboard your boat by taking items that are necessary and leaving behind a few that sound good but are definitely overrated. WHAT WORKS AND WHAT doesn’t? Just peruse a few nautical swap meets at marinas and yacht clubs along the West Coast, even in Mexico. Poking through the offerings in a dozen well-traveled lazarettes, tool bins and paint lockers can be surprisingly instructive. I’ve outfitted dozens of nice boats for Mexico cruising adventures, and I’ve run dozens of yachts for 5,000-mile deliveries, and along the way I’ve become familiar with onboard items

10

A $5 roll of Rescue Tape rescued us 1,000 miles offshore after a high-pressure diesel line sprang a serious leak. The repaired line held and kept the single-engine trawler running for another 1,200 miles to Hawaii. This self-fusing silicone tape seals itself even while submerged in diesel or water, insulates up to 8,000 volts and resists heat to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Rescue Tape is sold at many U.S. chandlers but is difficult to find in Mexico. Electronic flares, such as the SOS Distress Light, are a must-have for any dinghy gear bag and ditch kit in Mexico. It’s illegal to drive or fly across the border with handheld phosphorous flares, so it’s smart to shift to the electronic versions — still U.S. Coast Guard approved. A lightweight foldable shopping cart is required gear for provisioning in Mexican ports; due to the threat of cockroach eggs, you don’t want to bring cardboard boxes or paper bags onto a boat. West Marine has several options. I like a Trolley Dolly model (dbest-products.com) that has two wheels and a vertical duffle-type compartment (waterproof, zip-closed) that holds about

six bags of groceries or two loads of laundry. The 10-inch-by-12-inch platform doubles as a dolly for water jugs or stacks of six-packs. Two rubber wheels (not four) maneuver over stairs and broken sidewalks, and the cart folds compactly and stores in a small space. I recommend boaters put two aboard and stencil their boat name on them. The heat in Mexico requires light-colored canvas covers for inflatable dinghies, not only to protect the tubes from sun damage but also to shield passengers’ sit-down parts from getting scorched on the way to shore. Hydraulic fluid that’s specified by your

It’s OK to overestimate how many fuel filters you may need for the main engine and generator. boat’s manufacturer for its steering system and stabilizers may not be available in Mexico, and hot sea water and air temperatures may affect its hydraulics more than anybody realizes. With that in mind, bring enough bottles for two or three flushes of the boat’s steering system — electrohydraulic or other — and one extra flush of other onboard hydraulic systems: davit, crane, trim tabs, outboard lifts, hatch lids, etc. Most Mexican boatyards consider automatic transmission fluid for cars as the universal substitute, but don’t let them endanger a boat’s critical systems or void its warranties. On the same note, bring a couple of hydraulic rebuild kits or at least the correct gaskets or diaphragms for your boat’s steering system and stabilizers. It’s OK to overestimate how many fuel filters you may need for the main engine and generator. In fact, quadruple your estimate. Just don’t fuel a revolt by stowing them in the galley. Tubes of epoxy putty (make sure it cures underwater), all sizes of freezer-type zip plastic baggies, all sizes of quality bandages (store them in a plastic bag) and a first-aid kit are other items that can’t be overemphasized.

OVERRATED

My uncle, who does his boating on Midwest lakes, sent us a gift from an appallingly expensive catalog: a beautifully machined stainless steel Genuine Baja Fuel Filter with a filter whose porosity was that of a window screen. Fortunately, diesel at all of Mexico’s fuel docks is centrifuged and has been for the last 15 years, even on those 2,000-gallon tank trucks that deliver diesel to Baja’s remote ports, such as Turtle Bay and San Felipe. That shiny Baja Fuel Filter could only strain out leaves, not water or bio sludge. Night-vision binoculars are good for spotting warm objects such as a man overboard or a log. But they have only digital magnification, not optical magnification that lets you zoom the focus way out and in, so they work best for searching very close to the boat. Infrared vision is destroyed by the glare of land lights, or even a boat’s own running lights reflected off the water or stainless rails. They’re a neat idea but they just don’t replace a good pair of 7x50 marine-coated binoculars, which usually cost about a third of good night-vision binoculars. Fresh bread at anchor epitomizes the cruising lifestyle, right? But with a breadmaker, it’s not the carbs boat owners need to count, it’s the amp hours. Drawing seven to 10 amps for three hours of rising and baking time per loaf, a bread-maker might keep the boat bound to dock power or cause the generator to be run in an otherwise tranquil anchorage. Most leather-bound log books are so generic as to be impractical. Instead, customize a two-part spreadsheet in Microsoft Excel. Under Navigation, label columns that suit your voyage, such as Date & Time, Latitude & Longitude, Course & Speed, Distance to Closest Port, Depth, Sea State and Weather. Fill in the rows on the top of the hour. Under Engine Room, label columns tailored to your boat, such as Main Engine RPM, Engine Hours, Oil Temp, Oil Pressure, Fuel Levels, Generator and Water-maker. Make entries on the half hour. Either fill in the spreadsheet live while on watch, or print 100 sheets of each type of log, staple them together and fill them in as you go — in ink.

WhisperPower

The WP Sine 12/3000 is the latest addition to WhisperPower’s WP-Sine 12v inverter series and features a pure sine wave output voltage and stable frequency. The automatic internal transfer switch detects when shore power is available, and if it is, 230v consumers are directly supplied from the shore instead of via the inverter, which preserves the battery. There is also an internal 230v connection for a fixed connection to the 230v systems. As an extra feature, a USB port on the front of the unit can charge a phone. whisperpower.com

SmartPlug Systems

SmartPlug Systems’ new Equipment Leakage Circuit Interrupter provides boat owners with another layer of electrical safety. It shuts down shore power if current leakage is detected, which helps combat potential problems such as dangerous electricity in the water and electrolysis. The device is an ELCI and breaker combination, and somewhat like a residential GFCI, it trips and cuts off the power if electricity leaks or a ground wire is broken or works loose. The Combo Kit, including sensor, breaker and door, comes in 30A and 50A. smartplug.com

THE EXPERTS By DEANE HISLOP

Taking care of one’s engine is important, but so is making sure nothing that can cause trouble later gets left behind.

THE WELL-KEPT COMPARTMENT Engine room safety is paramount.

THE BEST SKIPPERS HAVE always been the most vigilant ones, whether that means being aware of threats from other vessels, noticing changes in weather and sea conditions, or knowing about navigational hazards. But how many boat owners pay proper attention to one of the potentially dangerous places aboard a boat: the engine room?

If something goes wrong on a boat, chances are it will happen where there are hot, rapidly moving objects and flammable substances nearby. The threat of such a mishap never fully disappears, even when the boat is tied to the dock, where potential trouble is only minimized. Many of us have no intention of going into the engine room while the boat is underway, but spend enough time on a boat and you will have to, whether it’s to investigate an alarm or because you sense something’s wrong. That’s why it’s a commonsense practice to be prepared to enter a “live” engine room, and that means protecting yourself and the crew. Rule number one is to wear ear protection: Protect your hearing or lose it. Don’t rely on earplugs (or wadded-up tissue

paper); purchase a good pair of acoustical earmuffs and designate a place near the entrance where they will hang. A set of 3M earmuffs works great and costs about $20. Also, a pair of tight-fitting mechanic gloves are a good idea, because most everything in a live engine room is hot enough to burn skin. For further protection from burns, wear a sweatshirt, even though the engine room’s temperature argues against it. Just make sure it fits snugly. The engine(s) should be at idle before anyone enters the engine room, but while the prop shaft may not be turning, other things will be. A main cause of injury in an engine room is encountering moving parts. Minimize those chances by not wearing loose-fitting clothing and jewelry. Next is lighting. If you can’t see a

potential hazard, you’ll have trouble avoiding it. Newer boats have pretty good overhead lighting while many older boats do not. But engine rooms are notorious for having shadowed nooks and crannies. Overhead lighting will only go so far. Supplement it with a portable lamp or a high-intensity flashlight that throws a powerful, tightly focused beam. Unfortunately, engine room mishaps often occur when the space is unoccupied, and often the culprit is the improper handling and/or storage of flammable materials. Certain things should never be in an engine room, among them are spare lube oil, all solvents and all rags, even clean ones. Engine rooms contain petroleum-based fumes that rags can absorb. If they absorb enough fumes, spontaneous combustion and fire can result. Then there are batteries. It’s surprising how often they are improperly installed, either with an insecure mounting or without a dedicated container (e.g., vented battery box). Another common failure results from missing or misplaced positive protection — you know, that annoying red plastic cap. It’s there for a reason, to prevent arcing across the battery terminals — it only takes a dropped tool — and sparks are not something you want in your engine room. Finally, there are oil leaks. Hot oil is particularly combustible, so if your engine is a dripper, place an absorbent mat under the leak and change it often. Even a smidge of oil is problematic and should be wiped up immediately. Oil and fuel leaks are a primary cause of fires, so owners need to frequently check the condition of all hoses and fittings, especially if the boat has an older engine. Rubber does not last forever, so replace aged hoses before they fail.

GRINDING GRID’S GEARS

Taking Up Space and Air IT’S 21 JANUARY 2019, 0330. Yesterday went from 61 degrees in the morning to 20 degrees in the afternoon. The wind was howling, the wind chill 4 degrees. Izzy, our year-old golden shepherd, just threw up on the carpet on The Nurse’s side of the bed. MaryLou is up in arms because it had to have been something I gave Izzy that caused the problem. Maybe, maybe not. Checking the mess, I don’t remember feeding her pea gravel, but at my advanced age I might have. After we achieved a semblance of clean, I snuggled back under the covers and pulled the blanket up to my chin. Well, it was “chin” when I lived in Maine and dealt with snow-exercise in the winter; now it’s “chins” caused by the only exercise I get: opening the refrigerator up. And that got me to my favorite game: letters and words.

With apologies to the late George Carlin, if I’m horizontal in bed, how can I pull the covers up? Take the word “butter” (I added 16 ounces to my body saying the word). I can make rut, bet, rub, tub, butt, true, tube, and probably a bunch more. Each of those words has an identifiable picture in my mind when I write it. Not so with up. With apologies to the late George Carlin, if I’m horizontal in bed, how can I pull the covers up? I can pull them across — leaving the Nurse in a serious snit — and over my chest, but I’d have to be sitting to pull them up. In the kitchen, the Nurse cooks up dinner, then serves it up; she washes up the dishes; she cleans up the house; she’s up in arms because the dog is a dog, not a self-perpetuating goldfish; she cleaned up the mess (that’s close, because the mess in a paper towel went up and over into the trash can); I rake up the yard; I straighten up the

workshop; I read up on new engines; I pick up milk (that’s a close one, too) at the store; I tell her a customer’s engine blew up, when it actually and dramatically threw a rod through the side of the block; I go to the boatyard to check up on our boat. Up is, for all intents, a superfluous, redundant word. Not only that, you can’t do anything with the letters except spell up.

When you listen to folks talk, pick up on how many start almost every sentence with “so,” then lace the conversation with “like” hundreds of times. That, readers, drives me right up a tree, though I’m not certain why I’d go there to get away from it all. Right now I’m headed back to bed and will most certainly pull the covers over me.

BERTRAM 61

A storied past combined with modern technology creates a versatile sportfisher worthy of the name Bertram.

22  SEAMAGAZINE.COM  MARCH 2019

+Sea Trial Bertram.indd 22

1/31/19 8:06 AM


WHEN BERTR AM CEASED PRODUCTION in 2012, many boaters feared the iconic American brand was gone for good, but new ownership in 2015 brought strong financial backing and a refined focus on what makes Bertram special. Appropriately, I caught up with the new Bertram 61 in Newport, R.I., where it all started.

On a lumpy day in 1958, a young Richard Bertram, intrigued by the rough-weather performance of Ray Hunt’s new deep-V hull prototype, commissioned Hunt to design a 31-footer that became the legendary Moppie. That boat changed powerboat design forever and defined the Bertram brand. It was so influential that the first boat produced under the new leadership, the Bertram 35 (featured in Sea’s January 2018 issue), was a retro tribute that combined original design elements with modern materials. The Bertram 61 takes this philosophy a step further by providing owners with the quality Bertram is known for in a platform that can better showcase modern design, construction and amenities.

CLASSICALLY BERTRAM

Sporting a pale blue hull, a contrasting dark cabin stripe and a step-down sheer line with an angular drop at the cockpit, the Bertram 61 combines classic elements with a clean, modern feel. Designed to fish, the 61’s teak-clad self-draining cockpit is larger than others in this class at 188 square feet. A varnished wood and ultra­ leather fighting chair with a footrest and a rocket launcher matches the mezzanine seating two steps up and the twin helm seats at the back of the flybridge above. Other fishing amenities include gunwale storage on both sides, an aquarium-style livewell in the transom, removable macerator-equipped fishboxes below and plenty of rod holders. Without a swim platform, the transom door can be easily kicked and has a separate top gate. Mezzanine steps house refrigerated compartments with lift-up lids, a hatch provides engine room access and a cabinet beneath the aluminum flybridge ladder includes convenient tackle storage. Up the ladder, the helm is fully aft. A high-gloss varnished helm pod contains a centerline stainless Ongaro steering wheel, single-lever Palm Beach controls (see Standard of Control sidebar for an explanation of the origins of the Palm

Tester’s Opinion

Beach controls) and the integrated hydraulic bow thruster control. Above the helm is a recess for overhead electronics and a pocket that contains twin electric Maya Epoch US 9 teaser reels. Ahead of the helm are the Caterpillar engine and Octoplex electrical systems displays and twin Garmin MFDs. Hatches on both sides of the helm provide further access to controls and a place to charge and hold phones, tablets, binoculars and other loose items. Visibility is good all around, though at almost 6 feet tall I couldn’t quite see the bow. Aft visibility is excellent, perfect for working the fishing action or backing up to a dock. Ahead of the helm is seating all around — backrests are conveniently removable — and a large centerline lounge pad with drink holders, all within earshot of the helmsman. Triple spreader outriggers flank a custom PipeWelders hardtop.

BY THE NUMBERS

The CAT 32 ACERT diesels rumbled gently as we ran out the harbor entrance into more open water. With only a light chop coming at us, we had no need for the standard Seakeeper 16 gyro stabilizer. The Bertram 61 cruised effortlessly at 1925 rpm, where it was running at 35 knots and the CATs were burning 159 gph. At 80 percent load, this is a nice cruising speed for running out for a day of fishing or heading down the coast. Backing off to 25 knots lowered the fuel burn to 93 gph and increased range to 417 miles, though I preferred running the boat faster, as I suspect most owners will. For a moderate cruise, 1650 rpm yielded 28.5 knots, a 114 gph fuel burn and a 387-mile range. Our peak speed was 42.7 knots, and it was difficult to tell we were going that fast. Even at speed the 61 felt solid and maneuvered admirably; tight turns presented no issue for the vessel. Stopping and backing down, the boat was nimble in reverse, and large cockpit drains are designed for the type of action needed to land or tag big fish.

Bertram seems to have found the right balance between its historical roots and modern amenities and construction techniques. SEAMAGAZINE.COM  MARCH 2019  23

In a nod to its beginnings, Bertram packed the new 61 with fishing amenities — why wouldn’t it? — but a quick look reveals comfort and luxury throughout the salon and galley and in the belowdecks accommodations. Even the Palm Beach controls look classic but use modern hydraulics and electronics for better maneuverability.

SPECS LOA 61 ft., 1 in. Beam 18 ft., 3 in. Draft 4 ft., 10 in. Displacement 88,000 lbs.

The sound level reached 90 decibels at the helm, a reasonable level on an open flybridge with an isinglass enclosure. Most of the noise came from water and wind, as the decibel meter read 78 in the salon.

LUXURY ACCOMMODATIONS

Performance, strength and fishability are important, and the new Bertram 61 delivers, but it also has the accommodations and refinement that add versatility. Inside, the main salon is bright and airy. Its large Water 280 gal. wraparound window is segmented by six mullions, and the glass, like the Power Twin Caterpillar C32A rest of the boat, is designed to handle tough conditions. Diehard canyon diesels, 1,925 hp runners can, however, eschew the forward glass and opt for fiberglass. Price as tested The finish on this boat is top quality, with matte-varnished teak $4,018,000 cabinetry throughout. The salon has a fore and aft seating area, and the convenient and fully equipped center galley includes twin sculpted glossy teak-and-stainless barstools. Belowdecks are three cabins and three full heads all with a separate shower. The forward cabin can be configured with either a queen island or split beds. The full-beam master cabin has an athwartships bed and an en suite head. I estimate headroom to be 6 feet, 3 inches in the master, though steps along the hull sides lower it. Fuel 1,720 gal.

modern amenities and construction techniques. Known for building tough boats, Bertram folks still do, at the company’s 120,000-square-foot waterfront shipyard and marine service facility on Tampa Bay. Vacuum-infused vinylester resin, a cored deck and hull that includes Kevlar reinforcement on the keel, strakes and spray rails make for a strong boat. The Michael Peters design includes an 18-degree deadrise and is true to Bertram’s roots, and it is combined with weight-saving contemporary construction techniques to enhance performance. The Bertram 61 combines the best of the past with the technology of the future and delivers a boat that is not only a fishing machine but a comfortable cruiser that the whole family will enjoy. Judging by the team it has put together and the success of the new 61 — as of press time five have been sold — Bertram is back and, I suspect, here to stay.

Palm Beach controls are a hallmark of modern battlewagons. Not only do they look good — a center pod of highly varnished teak contrasts with a polished stainless wheel and controls on each side — but they make it far easier to handle the boat, especially when backing down. Who designed this setup and why is it called Palm Beach controls? The name, like many aspects of modern sportfishing, points to the Rybovich yard in Palm Beach. I surveyed some knowledgeable sportfishing professionals who agreed that the origin of such controls was likely the Rybovich brothers. Seeking further verification, I spoke to Bill Knowles, an 83-year-old boat captain with close ties to Rybovich. Knowles was friends with both Johnny and Tommy Rybovich and confirmed that Palm Beach controls were invented at the Rybovich yard in the late 1940s or early ’50s. Tommy’s experience with aircraft in World War II gave him the idea. When he returned to the family yard, he and Johnny configured the center pod, a smaller wheel sans spokes and single levers into what is now known as Palm Beach controls. Originally, the controls were connected to cables in sheathes with the shifters and throttles attached at different points along the fulcrum of the lever arms. Modern hydraulics and electronics are now interfaced to Palm Beach controls in lieu of cables, but they perform the same way. Other notable features the Rybovich brothers popularized or invented were smaller automotivestyle wheels — previously wheels were larger and had spokes like on sailing vessels — aluminum outriggers instead of bamboo, the fighting chair, transom doors (tricky on wooden boats) and the trolling valve.

PRESTIGE

520 FLYBRIDGE Coastal cruising gets a stylish makeover and IPS maneuverability with a new model from France.

Tester’s Opinion

I liked the Prestige 520 for several reasons. It’s stylish while remaining very comfortable, fast but efficient enough the local fuel dock won’t send Christmas cards, and well-built.

The 520 Flybridge maintains its sleek profile all the way aft. A hardtop is an option, however, for buyers who want the protection from the sun it provides.

act of courage for a boatbuilder to take a yacht that has proven to be continuously popular and then make some improvements and rename it. You know what they say about messing with success…

a Saturday afternoon, anyone? It also serves to throw spray aside, although the deadrise — 17 degrees at the transom — sharpens as it goes forward to help with that task.

Give Prestige Yachts a star for courage. The powers-that-be there had the fortitude to reexamine the Prestige 500, which, by the way, has sold 500 hulls in the six years since its introduction. Part of their tinkering was the result of carefully listening to buyers of the 500, part was to keep up with manufacturing technology and part was, well, just plain French élan. See, Prestige is the luxury motoryacht division of Jeanneau, which is a division of the Beneteau Group, arguably one of the builders at the top of the yacht-building world.

The interior of the Prestige the Prestige 520 520 benefits from some tinkering as well, starting with benefits from immense areas of windows. I some tinkering as had a nice chat with Camillo well, starting with Garroni, whose Garroni Design penned both the exteimmense areas of rior and interior, over a glass windows. of champers, and he noted that the 520 has 50 percent more glazing than the 500. The side windows drop well behind the salon couches and extend up into soffits for the hidden blinds, so the view, with a few mullions to interrupt, is truly panoramic. Garroni also revealed that the 520 has some 7 percent more interior volume than the 500, and one place I noticed it was in the salon. Its lofty 6 feet, 9 inches of headroom will accommodate all but the Shaquille O’Neals and Yao Mings among us. Full disclosure: She Who Must Be Obeyed loves aft galleys and, therefore, so do I. She finds them convenient for passing food forward to a dinette — to port on the 520 — or aft into the cockpit, which has a settee with a table for alfresco meals. This is an un-European layout, where the chef is savored but never seen. And, to be honest, it doesn’t make the most elegant entry into the salon, especially if the owner is wont to leave the breakfast dishes percolating in the sink. On the other hand, an aft galley may improve onboard tidiness. Either way, the galley benefits from the triple sliders that open it almost fully to the cockpit, and it has a mini island that facilitates setting out a buffet or simply adds some counter space for working on that five-course meal. The couches in the salon — one to port with a table and an

IT IS NO SMALL

SKIN DEEP

The biggest change is invisible. It’s Prestige’s shift from handlaid fiberglass hulls to full resin-infusion, which adds strength and rigidity without adding weight. In fact, Prestige uses resin-infusion for much of the 520, including the deckhouse and flybridge. From the side, the Prestige 520 has the au courant swept-back shape of a big lawn dart: sharpish forward, tapering aft and up into a sleek flybridge that overhangs the cockpit to provide shade. It’s a pleasant profile unlike some other offerings that seem bulky and tallish by comparison. Part of profile’s pleasing appearance is the combined glazing in both the topsides (for large windows in the cabins) and in the superstructure, where the windows seem to reach the deck (they almost do!). A view of the 520 from a raised pier reveals a big change in the foredeck, which has either been snubbed or widened (glass half full/ half empty). Either way, the result is a flaring of the foredeck that not only provides added deck space forward but also increases volume in the forward cabin. The snub nose doesn’t have any effect on the well-proven hull, although some folks with design knowledge have suggested it would provide lift if one must punch into steep seas. Catalina Channel on

L-shaped one to starboard — are really comfortable. I, for one, am tired of designers who make couches with stiffly vertical backs that don’t invite sprawling, because I’m a devoted sprawler. And with a popup TV forward to port, I know I would take full advantage of these couches as a mini media room. Another favorite feature of mine about the 520 is the sliding door/ window just behind the helm seat. It’s not just for ventilation; it’s 41 inches tall and 21 inches wide, so a short-handed skipper can pop onto the sidedeck to hang a fender or grab a springline at the gas dock. It also provides a nice cross-flow of breeze in pleasant weather.

BELOWDECKS ACCOMMODATIONS

There is something ineffably elegant about a separate entry to the master suite, and the 520 provides a private stairwell that leads down from opposite the galley. This adds a touch of élan to a yacht already brimming with French brio. A privacy door at the bottom opens to a full-beam master stateroom with a centerline king-sized berth. That berth has built-in nightstands on each side, as well as walk-around space — no more inelegant hands-andknees crawling to get under the covers. There is a walk-in closet in the aft port corner and, as you’d expect on a boat with French fashion sense, it’s full height, so pants and long dresses don’t get crunched by a too-short hanging space. I’m certain that in my case my better half would appropriate all of this closet, but there’s a bureau in this stateroom that would hold everything of mine, from sweaters to cargo shorts and more. The en suite master head benefits from a large hullside window with an opening vent, and the shower is designed for real-sized people to enjoy. A mirrored cabinet spans the

compartment, with enough space to hold the wares of a Paris parfumerie. Whether it was the French (Prestige) or the designer (Italian) responsible, the forward VIP stateroom is equally well planned for all uses. Need two berths? The touch of a button scissors the berth apart into two singles in a vee shape. Need a double berth for canoodling? Press the button again. As with the master, there is walk-around space on the outer side of the berth, so occupants can embark or debark the berth with their dignity intact. This cabin has direct, meaning private, entry to the day head off the hallway. It’s equipped with a square sink, ample space for toiletries and a square shower rather than the usual circular mailing tube for people. Also off the lower foyer, which hides a combo washer/dryer under the stairs, is a third cabin. Twin berths, plenty of light from the hull windows and another full hanging locker complete the area, which has access across the foyer to the day head.

OPERATION

Back in the salon, the skipper has a lordly doublewide throne behind an all-black — no reflection! — two-monitor dash. Not only does the helm throne raise and lower electrically, but its backrest also flips fore and aft. When a day of operating the boat is over, the skipper can press a button or two and his seating lowers and reverses to become a part of the wraparound lounge, kicking off entertainment mode. Just plain clever. No small amount of the credit for getting two cabins, two heads and a private master suite into a 52-foot hull goes to the powerplants: a pair of Volvo Penta D6 IPS600 diesels, 435 hp each, hooked to pod drives. They not only free up considerable space in the engine room, leading to a bigger master suite, but they won’t melt your fuel credit card. This package tops out at around 28 knots and has a comfy 20- to 22-knot cruise that should eat up the miles. Even better, pod

drives take all the white knuckles out of maneuvering in tight spaces. The flybridge has more surprises, with a huge sunpad next to a port-situated helm and an outdoor galley with a grill, a sink and a refrigerator in the helm seat console. The French seem to have perfected the flip-back seat, because the big sunpad has flip-up backrests, and the forward-facing seat reverses with a flip back. Sunbathers have more options, because there’s a triple-wide sunpad on the foredeck, again with flip-up backrests. Back at the stern our test 520 had another surprise: an optional crew cabin. Accessed via a hinged seat in the cockpit, it features not just a single berth but a head, sink and shower. In the absence of a crew, the room is equally good for a teenager. Buyers can leave this space empty to create stowage for everything from deck gear to cases of fine French wine, but another option is to use the space for a tender garage for a jet-powered RIB.

PORT HARVEY MARINA

BY DE A NE HISLOP

After breakfast I went fishing, hooking and releasing a few rockfish. Then I hooked something big, but it took the line down into the rocks and broke off. I quickly tied a new lure on, dropped it to the bottom and immediately hooked a rockfish. As I began to reel it up, a huge lingcod grabbed the rockfish. I fought the mammoth lingcod to the surface. I got it alongside the dinghy, three times, but it was so large I couldn’t get it into the net. It finally released the rockfish, and the biggest lingcod I’d ever seen disappeared into the depths of Stopford Bay. During our first trip to the Broughton Islands in the summer of 2011, rain fell almost the entire time, but that didn’t dampen our spirit, and Arlene and I have returned many times since. What draws us back are the navigational challenges, the isolation and need for self-reliance, the wilderness and wildlife, the grandeur of dense green forests sloping into the sea, the whitecapped mountains, the abundant anchorages and the interesting people we meet along the way. We made our most recent visit during the summer of 2018 when we allocated five weeks of our three-and-a-half-month summer cruise for exploring the Broughtons. We planned to take it slow and visit marinas we hadn’t visited in a few years, stop at a few we had never visited, spend time on the hook in some of our favorite coves and nooks, and explore new anchorages. After taking a month to cruise the Gulf Islands, the Sunshine Coast, Desolation Sound and the Discovery Islands, we entered the Broughton Islands in mid-June. Our first stop, as is our custom, was Port Harvey Marina on East Cracroft Island. It’s always our last stop, too, before making the run south in Johnstone Strait. George and Gail Cambridge greeted us warmly and we enjoyed a nice visit with them. Sadly, George died in his sleep a couple of weeks after our return stop. He will be missed by the boating community. As of press time, Port Harvey’s future was undecided. LAGOON COVE Last year marked our first visit to Lagoon Cove since the Rayan Family purchased the facility from Jean Barber in November 2016. We were happy to discover the Rayans have continued the longtime tradition of providing fresh shrimp and prawns at happy hour, while guests bring their favorite refreshment and an appetizer to share. The following day we made our way southwest through Clio Channel and up the appropriately named Beware Passage, a rock-infested passage where skippers need to pay attention to the chartplotter and depthsounder. Our destination was Beware Cove at Turnour Island, chosen for its protection from a southerly wind. We hadn’t been settled for an hour when Arlene spotted a black bear about 100 yards away. After that always-special sighting, we launched the dinghy and set crab traps between two islets in 30 feet of water, then took the dinghy to the head of the cove for an afternoon of exploration. The following morning, eagles perched in the trees above the cove and called back and forth. Easy Goin’ was surrounded by a large school of eulachons brightly flashing below the water’s surface. I checked the crab traps — there was one nice keeper — before we pulled anchor and headed SEAMAGAZINE.COM  MARCH 2019  31

for Waddington Bay via Spring and Retreat passages. There was only one other boat in the bay — a far cry from the height of the season — and the sun broke out as we set the anchor. By midafternoon 10 boats were anchored in the bay, and it was beginning to look a lot like summer. We spent the afternoon in the dinghy exploring the many islets that surround the anchorage, and I spent all evening consumed with researching the next day’s destination: Monday Anchorage. Overnight it began to rain, and it continued into the morning. Six weeks into our trip and we were experiencing our first real rain, but we expected it; the area is known as British Columbia’s Rain Coast. In the morning, we weighed anchor and made the short five-and-a-halfmile cruise through narrow Arrow, Blunden and Misty passages to Monday Anchorage. The clouds lying low on the surrounding island hillsides made the vast space almost intimidating. We set the hook in the lee of the easternmost island and had the anchorage all to ourselves. Launching the dinghy, we went

LET THE FORAGING BEGIN We departed Monday Anchorage and were visited by a pod of white-sided dolphins on our way to Laura Bay. They surfed and jumped in our bow and stern wakes and provided a precious opportunity for some pictures. There was only one other boat in the anchorage when we arrived. Before setting the hook in the lee of the islet, we set the prawn pots in 300 feet of water in hopes of catching some succulent shrimp. At 4 p.m., it was time to check the pots, and the haul of only three spot prawns was disappointing but didn’t discourage us — OK, one of us — so we reset the pots in a more promising location. An after-dinner rainstorm produced a vibrant double rainbow, one end of which dropped into our anchorage. Was it a sign that our pots were filling with prawns? We would have to wait until morning to find out. The pots, upon morning inspection, yielded a mixed limit of 200 spot prawns and striped shrimp. The double rainbow last evening was a premonition of things to come. We refreshed the bait and sent the pots back to the bottom. Back in the anchorage, a young bald eagle perched in the single stunted, gnarled tree on the islet watched us clean our catch. We believe he was looking for a handout, but the tails were for us and the heads for the crab trap. An afternoon check of the prawn pots rewarded us with half of a limit, and when we pulled the crab trap, it had seven Dungeness crabs in it.

Dolphins are ever-present companions in the Broughton Islands. Bears, such as this one in Beware Passage, frequently appear, and the first crab of the trip is always cause for celebration.

BACK INTO THE WILDERNESS After a two-day visit at Pierre’s Echo Bay Marina, we purchased a few provisions, said our good-byes and cast off for Vinner Sound. Both mooring balls were

Stopford Bay provides an idyllic anchorage, and there’s a giant lingcod in the depths that eluded this story’s writer.

occupied when we arrived, and the balance of the area was populated with commercial crab lines, which left us nowhere to set the hook. Our backup plan was to head for McIntosh Bay in Simoom Sound. The first bay had six boats rafted in it, so we moved to the west, found the other two bays empty and set the hook in the bay farthest to the west. Once the engines were off, we could hear the babbling of two creeks in the forest at the head of the cove; they later made for a soothing night’s sleep. The sun made an appearance in the late afternoon, and we were able to enjoy happy hour and the scenery from the cockpit for the first time in a few days. Oh boy, did it rain hard overnight and through the following morning. Even in the rain, though, the place was beautiful. Everything was lush and much of it green, from the gold-colored seaweed exposed at low tide to the hills and mountains thick with evergreen forest. This morning the hillsides were mysteriously covered by clouds that hung just 100 feet above the water’s surface. We got underway early and headed for Moore Bay. On the way we spied several waterfalls on the surrounding hillsides that were running as a result of the previous night’s rain. When we arrived, the eastern cove had a log boom stretched across it at the 35-foot depth line, and it dropped off quickly from there. Over in the west cove everything looked good, so we dropped the anchor. Once again Easy Goin’ and its crew were all alone with the sound of cascading water coming from the forest. We launched the dinghy and set the crab trap in the eastern bay in hopes of catching dinner and three hours later had a keeper Dungeness. TURNBULL COVE The next day broke as one of those beautiful Broughton mornings, with a marine layer and not a breath of wind. The boats at anchor reflected a mirror image. Arlene spotted a couple of deer walking the shoreline, but it was another moving day, so we headed toward Turnbull Cove with our hopes high for finding some prawns. We spotted an ancient First Nation pictograph before we entered the cove and set the prawn pots on some promising marks on the depthsounder. Entering the cove, we were surprised to find no other boats. That just doesn’t happen in July. We assumed that all the boats in the area were at nearby Sullivan Bay Marina getting ready for the following day’s July 4 celebration. We have spent more than one July 4 at Sullivan Bay, but we decided to anchor

At New Vancouver, visitors can discover more about the many kinds of totems, the longhouse and its colorful entrance, the traditional net shed and more.

If You Go

Happy hour at Sullivan Bay is a must-attend.

Consider going during a shoulder season, June or September, if you desire solitude. While there are fewer boaters, June can be cool and rainy, and September can be foggy.  Make sure your vessel is mechanically sound and you have a set of spare parts aboard. The ship’s library needs to be stocked with a current set of charts, tide and current tables, and cruising guides. Good foul-weather gear and a camera are must-haves. Don’t rely on cellular and Wi-Fi service.  Give yourself time to kick back, relax and enjoy. Allow plenty of time for the trip, and reduce stress by planning for weather days. Prepare to meet people and make new friends. Go well stocked with happy hour appetizers to share. Appreciate the people who provide the services in this remote area.

FAST FACT

Capt. George Vancouver named the Broughton Archipelago for the commander of one of his ships. This was during the exploration of 1792 when many of the complex waterways and islands along the vast British Columbia coast were named.

out this time in hopes of having a popular anchorage all to ourselves. I love it when a plan comes together. After lunch we launched the dinghy, motored over to Roaringhole Rapids, which was ebbing at full force, and captured a few pictures. The water from 6-mile-long Nepah Lagoon flushes through the shallow, narrow rapids and creates quite the sight. Late in the afternoon, we pulled the prawn pots and had modest success, just short of a limit. We spent the following day tending the prawn pots and were rewarded with two limits. After dinner, thunderheads formed and treated us to a lightning storm that was followed by a brilliant sunset. It was our own July 4 fireworks show. SULLIVAN BAY MARINA On the morning we headed to Sullivan Bay — we had to take on water and provisions, purchase dinghy and generator fuel, top off the propane tanks, offload burnable garbage and check email — the clouds hung heavy on the surrounding hillsides once again. Sullivan Bay Marina is a quaint floating village and marina on the north side of North Broughton Island, whose shoreline plunges sharply into the deep water and leaves no space for roads or buildings. An hour after our arrival, a powerboat named Beach House appeared from around the point. Arlene and I were happy to see the boat, because aboard it were our Anacortes-based friends Wally and Brenda.

home across the harbor, but that was all. By morning the fog had dissipated but a marine layer persisted. After breakfast, we weighed anchor and headed to Bootleg Cove — where we discovered three lines of crab traps that made it uncomfortable to anchor.

We enjoyed happy hour aboard Easy Goin’ and shared tales of our respective trips thus far and then went to the restaurant to enjoy the Friday night prime rib. The following morning Wally and I set the prawn pots and did a little fishing. We caught several rockfish but nothing worth keeping. Later in the day we enjoyed happy hour at the community center with the other visiting boaters, and then Wally and I participated in the hole-in-one contest, which Wally won with his first shot. He received one night of free moorage and had to wear the colorful hole-in-one blazer for a day. We decided to wait until morning to pull the prawn pots. SHOAL HARBOUR Our plan for the following day was to do some exploring on the way to Shoal Harbour, another new anchorage for us. No other boats were anchored in the harbor when we arrived, and as we roamed the harbor looking for a spot to set the hook, Arlene spotted a black bear on the beach. He was rolling over rocks and eating crustaceans, so we moved Easy Goin’ in close to capture some pictures. The bear didn’t appear to be bothered by our presence, and once the photo session was over we set the hook north of the small unnamed island. During a peaceful night of sleep in the calm and quiet of Shoal Harbour, I awoke at 2 a.m. to check on things. The harbor was engulfed in a light fog. I could see the anchor lights on the other two boats and the float

CULTURE & HISTORY Because of our interest in the history of the First Nation people, we decided to move on to the ancestral village of Mamalilaculla to see the remains of middens and totems from the lost native culture that thrived in these islands well before the first European settlers arrived. We guided Easy Goin’ around the reef that protects the one-boat anchorage and placed the hook in 14 and a half feet over a good-holding bottom. About an hour later we received a hail on the VHF from Beach House. After a short discussion, they decided to join us and raft up. Wally and I took the dinghy into Knight Inlet to get cell service and called the Band Office to ask for permission to go ashore. As we stood on the dock, a boat pulled up to it. Two First Nation individuals had come to clear brush that had overtaken the village; they were preparing the village for a threeyear archeological survey to learn more about the people who once lived here. In the morning we weighed anchor and the two boats made the short cruise to the village of New Vancouver, where we would learn more about the area’s First Nation history and culture. In the afternoon Amy and Alex, two granddaughters of the founder and chief of the village, gave us a tour of the small settlement. TURN FOR HOME Easy Goin’ and Beach House departed New Vancouver in a stiff northwest wind and headed for Lagoon Cove, then to Port Harvey the following morning. On our final night with Wally and Brenda, we enjoyed happy hour aboard Easy Goin’, knowing that in the morning we would be parting ways, they headed for Desolation Sound and we the Discovery Passage area.

TENDER:

OR

Workhorse? The trusted dinghy is becoming more things to more people. BY ZUZANA PROCHAZKA

A dinghy by another name is, well, a boat. And like all boats today, tenders are getting bigger, fancier, faster, more versatile and maybe a bit more complex. As big boats have had to change to become family-friendly SUVs on the water, so have their compact cousins. We discovered four important ways trusty tenders are changing. Get 'er Done

Bigger. Lighter. Quieter.

The consensus among tender builders is that everyone is reaching for a bigger dinghy. Most cruisers choose the largest tender they can afford, that fits on the big boat and that they can manage with their crew on a beach landing. A 12-foot rigid inflatable boat (RIB) can carry a lot of provisions, but pulling one up on the beach with only two people is difficult. Size and weight are tradeoffs. Single-skin bottom RIBs are 10 to 20 percent lighter but don’t handle rough water as well. Meanwhile, a center console with a double floor and all the goodies can be a handful to get onto the chocks.

OR

Fun in the Sun

Walker Bay’s Generation flagship line is finding a happy medium by using a proprietary polyurethane composite micro stringer system that makes the hulls lighter and stronger. The boats absorb wave chop, get on plane faster, and carve ferocious but dry turns with the help of concave chines. Boyd Tomkins of Brig Boats noted that as people get bigger dinghies, they’re opting to — or maybe have to — tow the tender behind the big boat. He said he is seeing a lot more cruisers in the 40- to 60-foot range tow a tender rather than carry it. Despite the creative dinghy garages, hydraulic swim platforms and stowaway davits

While bigger outboards are a tender trend, so is electric power such as Torqeedo (above). Watersports — from wakeboarding to diving — are strengths of the right tender, including the Zodiac Open 5.5 (left) and the Brig F570 (middle). Carrying capacity is important, too, and the Williams SportJet 395 delivers.

TENDER:

OR

Workhorse? For easy engine management, people tend to choose 8 to 15 hp motors, but many are opting for much larger, and since planing is now a de facto requirement for powerboat tenders, outboards of 40 hp or more aren’t unusual. Mercury just launched a 13-footer that comes standard with a 50 hp engine and an integrated eight-and-ahalf-gallon fuel tank. The total package with motor weighs only 675 pounds and gets on plane in less than three seconds. Fast and quiet is the work of four-stroke engines that barely make any noise in neutral. Of course, for the ultimate in quiet motors, owners can opt for electric propulsion from the likes of Torqeedo or ePropulsion. To avoid carrying gas on a diesel-powered main ship, a propane-fueled Lehr outboard may be the answer. The issue with alternative propulsion is both top speed and range, so gasoline outboards aren’t going to disappear, certainly not as the trend is toward more horsepower, greater torque and higher speed.

Lighter yet More Durable and Stable

Tender helms can be more boat-like, such as on the Zodiac Open 5.5 (top left), or simpler, such as on the Williams MiniJet 280 (bottom left). Protection from the elements is another buyer’s choice, as demonstrated by the Zodiac Open 5.5 (top right) and the Walker Bay Generation 450 (middle). Boarding ladders are a must on watersports-ready tenders, and electric outboards add an alternative power choice.

that have become common on cruisers and trawlers, many small boats now travel on a leash as the cry becomes “bigger is better.” Tenders are also gaining interior space. Zodiac’s new 18-foot Open 5.5 has an overall width of 8 feet, 4 inches, more than half of which — 4 feet, 7 inches — is dedicated to inside space. Tubes are getting larger too, because big tubes mean more buoyancy and a drier ride. Most tubes are 16 to 19 inches in diameter, but the Open 5.5 tubes have a whopping 23-inch diameter, so fast runs won’t equal doused bodies. Bigger boats also mean bigger power plants, so outboards are growing too. According to Craig Henderson of Bullfrog Boats in Bellingham, Wash., inflatable boats aren’t regulated, so other than manufacturer’s recommendations and guidelines as to the horsepower and weight of outboard, RIBs can pretty much add anything.

Rigid hulls are generally made of fiberglass or aluminum. The latter is strong, puncture resistant and light but also potentially noisy and in need of a sacrificial zinc if it’s to be kept in saltwater for long periods of time. “We build with aluminum hulls because there are lots of rocky beaches here in the Pacific Northwest,” said Bullfrog’s Henderson. RIB materials and construction methods have changed. Some fiberglass hulls have been made lighter with vacuum infusion rather than a solid hand layup and others have been shaped with chines and vents for better performance. Most RIBs share the common aesthetic of a V-hull and a collar that is made of PVC or a neoprene-coated nylon fabric called Hypalon. However, looks can be deceiving. Bullfrog tenders look like inflatables but their collars are actually foam-filled rotomolded plastic. The advantages include never having to blow one up. (Brig calls its models rigid “intelligent” boats.) “Temperature changes don’t affect us, we

don’t ever get leaks and if you manage to puncture a tube, it’ll still float,” Henderson said. Rigid and unsinkable, Bullfrog boats are infused with a UV inhibitor, so the tubes never need to be covered, even in sunny climes. However, Bullfrog’s boats are actually regulated as to the size of outboard they can carry since they’re rigid (rather than air-filled) vessels. Walker Bay Boats opened up its bow configuration several years ago and technically reshaped the industry, since many manufacturers followed. The greater volume of the bow increases load-carrying capacity, and a square (less pointy) bow can add up to 20 percent more space. A wider boat is also typically more stable, and since these vessels are now zipping around on plane, stability is key.

Fancy and Feature-Packed

Technology trickle-down is changing tenders into highly personalized toys. As electronics get smaller and less expensive, and add-ons become lighter and more practical, dinghies are gaining fancy features. Among the more popular options are sunpads and deck extensions for sunbathing. The Zodiac Open 5.5, for example, features a sundeck with angled backrests for comfort and optimal sunbathing. Walker Bay’s 15-foot Generation 450 has a starboard-side lounge and the model just above it, the 525, has an optional sunbed where the entire forward section of the boat turns into a large pad. Rear platforms are making fishermen happy by providing a place to stand 40

More power means more activities. The Valiant 500 Sport, with a Mercury 60, has an anchored ski tow, and the Walker Bay Generation 525, with a Honda 115, has a pop-up ski pole (and a forward sunpad.

or stow buckets of bait, while more handholds — both textile and metal — are perfect for kids. Even the family dog is now top of mind with tender builders, with models that provide more and flatter deck space, so Fido can keep a pawhold. Brig boats come with SeaDek premium flooring on their platforms, adding a nonskid surface that provides grip even when it’s wet. Navigation lights are now mostly standard on center console-style tenders, and LED color-changing underwater and courtesy lights are becoming popular options that improve ambiance as well as nighttime boarding. Many cruisers are opting for shade for their water taxi, and builders are getting creative with various

kinds of Biminis. Cupholders, boarding ladders and integrated lifting harnesses are becoming de rigeur. Brig tenders longer than 14 feet offer a freshwater shower, and the 18-foot Novurania — the smallest of its Catamaran series — has an opening bow that lowers like a ramp, so passengers never have to climb over a tube to get on or off. It’s also a great platform to dive from or to roll a bike on for exploration ashore. However, by far the most often-requested additions are electronics, including small-footprint displays with GPS and electronic cartography, VHF radios, Bluetooth-enabled stereos and sonar/ depthfinders. This means console dashboards must accommodate electronics,

and sonar has challenged builders to find a suitable locations for transducers. Some manufacturers, Williams Jet Tenders among them, even work with certain boat builders to offer dinghies that are color-matched to the mothership. Check out Beneteau’s Monte Carlo line for a look at a matched set. Brig, which built 700 tenders last year, touts that its Ukraine-based factory — staffed by engineers of the defunded Soviet-era aerospace industry — is the biggest purchaser of tender fabric and offers more color choices than anyone. “Although we can offer more colors, about 75 percent of the tenders we sell are white, and that has trended toward a bluish white lately,” Tomkins said.

Versatile

Michael Carroll of Walker Bay sums up how boaters’ mindset has changed. “Tenders aren’t just for getting us from point A to point B anymore,” he said. “People are spending a lot of time in them, and they have to be comfortable. You wouldn’t believe how much time we’ve spent on just our cushion density and layout.” Loaded with goodies, tenders are uber-toys fit to go fishing, diving and distance cruising. With a larger

engine and fuel tank, a tender can be used to visit remote coves maybe 25 miles away, quickly and safely. Ski masts make dinghies platforms for wakeboarding, and extended decks create casting platforms or a prep space for dive gear. Some tenders even include dive-tank chocks. Brig has added unique fiberglass end cones to its tubes that serve to stiffen the craft and provide good footholds for boarding from the water after snorkeling. Fishing has become a popular duty of the tender, and many of them now include clever stowage options to hide lures and hold rods. “Fishing from a mini-sport boat is great,” Henderson said. “I mean, every salmon looks bigger in a small boat.” Today, tenders must have multiple personalities. Whether shuttling to dinner, cruising the cove during happy hour, exploring the backside of an island or pursuing serious watersports, dinghies have to wear many hats. Gary Durnan, president of Zodiac North America, hit it on the head when describing the Open 5.5 as a Swiss army knife. Dinghies are the family car, and as such they’ve had to become SUVs that can do just about anything and look good while doing so.

Pirates Cove Provincial Marine Park has many treasures for boaters to find. STORY AND PHOTOS BY DEANE HISLOP

LOCATED ON DECOURCY ISLAND AND only accessible by boat, Pirates Cove is one of the most popular Provincial Marine Parks in British Columbia’s Gulf Islands. Its name alone stimulates the imagination. One of the park’s attractions is a wooden treasure chest next to the park sign at the entrance to the cove. Somehow the treasure chest is always overflowing with toys, books and other treasures, which are free and for the taking. A voyage to Pirates Cove is a summer highlight for hundreds of young boating families. P R O C E E D W I T H C AU T I O N

Rumor has it real gold treasure in chests is waiting to be found on DeCourcy Island, but visitors can claim real treasures (not of the gold variety) free from a chest near the entrance to the cove.

The cove’s entrance can be tricky, but the miles of trails are worth it. Two dinghy docks make it easy to go ashore.

H I S T O RY In 1966, the park grounds were acquired for the purpose of a Provincial Marine Park with the assistance of the Council of British Columbia Yacht Clubs. The park’s earlier history as a summer fishing and trading site for First Nations people is interesting. Middens in the park, protected under the law, date back more than 3,000 years, with the largest one hidden beneath the present-day campground. A pirate of a different kind lived here in the late 1920s and early ’30s. A remarkable figure in the history of British Columbia, Brother XII (aka Edward A Wilson, among other names) was a mysterious cult leader who formed the Aquarian Foundation and convinced nearly 8,000 followers he was the Twelfth Master of Wisdom from another world who would teach his faithful the mysteries of ancient Egypt and usher in a new age. The amount of money donated to the foundation is legendary; people gave their entire life savings in support. A key commune property was on DeCourcy Island, a haven in advance of a predicted Armageddon. Perhaps Wilson had good intentions at the beginning, but over time the movement’s spiritual component went astray and a series of court cases provided insight into the commune’s financial and, yes, sexual scandals, which included the role of a whip-wielding Madame Zee. Eventually Brother XII and his mistress fled. Where he lived out his days and when he died remain a mystery, but witnesses told tales of glass jars filled with gold coins — the proceeds of donations to the foundation — stored in cedar chests. Though the pair escaped, speculation was they couldn’t have taken all the gold, meaning perhaps some is still buried somewhere on DeCourcy Island. We always keep our eyes peeled when we walk the park’s trails. Never know when we might be lucky enough to discover a jar full of gold coins or, even better, stub our toe on a cedar treasure chest full of booty.

Grilling is a boater’s best option for an alfresco meal; plus, it keeps the cleanup to a minimum and the galley cool on hot summer nights.

barely grilled steak when the flames go out. On Easy Goin’ we have a couple of one-gallon propane bottles for the grill, so we never have to worry about running out of fuel. It’s easy to change out bottles in the middle of grilling, if necessary. These additional propane bottles also act as a backup in case our galley stove runs out of the boat’s regular propane supply, and we don’t have to worry about how or where to dispose of those small green camping-style propane canisters when they’re empty. Just about anything that can be prepared on the galley stove or in the oven can be grilled. Everyone can relate to grilling hamburgers, pork chops, chicken, fish and steaks. But we use the grill to prepare lamb chops, vegetables, shrimp, kabobs, pizza, bread, garlic bread, nachos — the list goes on.

OUR GRILL F E AT U R E

FIRE UP THE BARBECUE

Keep the galley cool and the grill hot. BY DEANE HISLOP

GRILLING IS OUR FAVORITE WAY to cook aboard Easy Goin’. For Arlene and me, nothing compares to the smoky flavor of grilled foods. Plus, grilled foods are easy and taste great, and using the grill keeps the cabin cool on hot summer days. It’s the best part of the day, relaxing on deck in a secluded anchorage, enjoying a spectacular sunset with a cool drink. As the sun fades, it’s time for dinner. Nothing is easier than firing up the barbecue and enjoying the tantalizing aromas that soon waft through the cockpit and drift through the anchorage. Grilling is a great way to enjoy delicious foods with a minimum of cleanup, thanks to the fact that there are no pots and pans.

No one misses the fun in the cockpit while working in the galley, and avoiding a hot stove or oven keeps the boat cooler and leads to more comfortable sleeping conditions on summer evenings. A gas grill is ready with a flick of a switch and it’s easier to control the temperature, and there are no worries about storing charcoal and lighter fluid. One major caveat with propane: make sure there’s enough in the tank to finish grilling. Nobody wants a

I met Shawn Walter with Magma Products Inc. (magmaproducts.com) at the Seattle Boat Show. During our discussion I shared with him that we really enjoy our 18-year-old Magma Catalina grill but it had a couple of issues. It blew out on windy days and it burned too hot, even on low. Walter agreed that those were two inherent problems in the original design of the Gourmet Series but said in recent years the grills’ combustion systems had been completely redesigned to keep the grill burning in heavy winds and provide better temperature control. After our discussion, I decided it was time to replace our old Catalina model with a Newport II. We wanted a larger grilling surface that could accommodate an entire meal or extra meat when we entertain guests. The Newport II had some additional features that were attractive: an electronic ignition system powered by a single AAA alkaline battery, a hermetically sealed thermometer in the lid that controls the grill’s heat level, tightly spaced grill struts for grilling food of any size, and an elevated secondary grill/warming rack.

eight minutes on the first side and four on the other. Hamburgers also take about 12 minutes, depending on the thickness. Medium-rare steaks take about 10 minutes, six on the first side and four on the other. Resist the temptation to open the lid too often, because all the heat will escape and affect the cooking time. After it’s cooked, let the meat stand for three to five minutes so it can reabsorb its juices. Cutting into it right away releases the juices that keep it moist and tasty.

CLEANING Don’t bother cleaning the grill grates after every use. Grill grates are like a good cast-iron skillet: food tastes better when the grates are “seasoned.” We run a wire brush over the grates after each use and only “clean” them every six months or so.

SAFETY FIRST

Potatoes and shrimp (bottom left) are but two of the many foods a grill can prepare during a night, weekend or summer on the boat. The author prefers propane for his onboard grill.

We used our Magma Levelock Fish Rod Holder Mount from the old grill to mount the new grill to Easy Goin’. When the grill is not in use, it is simply slipped out of the rod holder and stowed in the lazarette. We installed the new grill before our three-and-a-half-month cruise last summer up the British Columbia coast, and it performed as advertised. We used it in steady winds of 15 mph and 20 mph gusts, and it never blew out. The thermometer does not show precise degree readings, but a gauge with color-coded low, medium and high ranges works well for determining when the grill is ready, and the approximate cooking temperature.

GRILLING TIPS Never begin grilling until the unit has

reached the desired temperature, especially when it comes to beef and pork. The grill needs to be hot enough to sear the outside of the meat, which seals in the juices. Grilled meat tastes better if it’s allowed to reach room temperature before it is placed on the grill, which allows for a more even cooking temperature. Be sure not to puncture the meat during the grilling process; always use tongs or a spatula. Fork stabs allow juices to seep out, leaving the meat dry and tasteless, and the dripping causes flare-ups. The most common problem with grilling is not paying enough attention to the time. All grills are different, and each owner needs to learn his grill’s tendencies. Our barbecued chicken and pork chops tend to take about 12 minutes over medium heat:

Grilling accidents are rare, but when they occur it’s usually after the grill has not been used for a while — a common scenario for seasonal cruisers. Before using the grill, or after reattaching the grill’s gas supply, take a minute to visually inspect the hoses for cracks, loose connections or blockages. Check for gas leaks by turning on the gas and swabbing the connections and hoses with soapy water. If bubbles form, fix the leak before using the grill. If you smell propane while cooking, turn off the grill and do not reignite it until the cause of the smell is determined and repaired. Never check for propane leaks using a match. If a camping propane canister shows signs of excessive rot, gouges or bulges, switch it out for another. Use caution when storing propane tanks. Camping propane canisters need to be stored upright in a dry and cool location, never near the grill. When lighting a gas grill, always keep the lid open to prevent gas from accumulating, which could result in a fire flash. If the burner doesn’t light, turn off the gas and wait several minutes before trying to light it again. If the burner goes out during grilling, turn the gas off and wait a few minutes. Open the lid before relighting. When it’s not in use, turn the propane off at the source.

 THE 2018 FT. Lauderdale International Boat Show was a success for Alexander Marine

International, with seven yachts either sold or contracted during the show. Alexander Marine said it was the best FLIBS ever for the company. Ocean Alexander models from 70 to 112 feet were part of the record sales effort and included hull #1 of the OA 90 Revolution, the builder’s newest and least-traditional vessel. Brokers with Alexander Marine’s HMY and MarineMax locations sold the yachts — a 70e, an 85, a 90R, two 112s, two 100s — and MarineMax was particularly impressed after the show. “MarineMax enjoyed an extremely successful FLIBS,” said Chuck Cashman, Chief Revenue Officer of MarineMax. “Several of our brands have reported record sales. One brand that stood out was Ocean Alexander. Our team’s passion and commitment for the brand, supported by Ocean Alexander through exceptional product, new innovative designs, and unparalleled service after the sale, allowed us to have a record show.”

SEASI DE CH AT

MEET KATHRYN ST. AMANT Commodore at the Association of Santa Monica Bay Yacht Clubs and a Director of the Southern California Yachting Association

KATHY ST. AMANT IS A seasoned sailor from Southern California and is a director of the Southern California Yachting Association, where some of her duties include helping to oversee opening day activities, regattas, races and award committees. One of her initiatives is to get more women into boating, and to that end the Los Angeles Yacht Club hosts a unique clinic: the All Women Boaters SCYA Women’s Boating Clinic (scya.org). It includes on-the-water and classroom instruction on sail- and powerboat topics, and everything is taught by the best women coaches in Southern California. This year’s event is Sept. 7, but International Women’s Day is March 8, so we decided to chat with St. Amant this month. Sea: How did you get into boating? KSA: CSU Long Beach had the best sailing program, from a super active sailing club to a winning sailing team. I moved into the

on-campus dorms in 1972 and was greeted by an excited group of new friends who introduced me to the club the very first night I was there. I didn’t graduate until

2000 because I was sailing too often to go to class. What kind of changes have you seen for women in boating? When I started sailing, women were not welcome on boats. They still are not on some, and if they are on board with a mixed crew, it is still difficult to get respect. I was so very lucky that my buddies on the C27 welcomed me and taught me so much. Other girls were jealous of me being on that boat, as there were not many girls SEAMAGAZINE.COM  MARCH 2019  CA-1

out there. From there, I realized that if I wanted to sail/race I had to have my own boat, so I got the S20. I was fairly successful on the local race course with the boat and through extreme luck was invited on board other boats that moved my local racing career forward. I had male mentors who were lovely and shared their knowledge, the helm and their boat with me. I was privileged to sail on Reliance, a Nelson Marek 42, which was bought from Dennis Connor, who sold it to practice for what turned out to be the first U.S.-losing America’s Cup campaign. Everyone wanted to be on that boat, and I got to be the pit. That was the best spot, as I was in the middle of all the conversation on board between the best of the best at that time, such as Dick Deaver as tactician. I had so many aha moments in the middle. I was the only female on that boat. What are the intimidation factors for women when it comes to boating? The intimidation factor for women starting in boating is still the male dominance of the sport. A strong guy who has no boating experience will get on board and be handed jobs to do. A female will be shown a chair or the rail on a sailboat. When knowledgeable women sailors — other than maybe one known for Olympic-class sailing — speak up, they are usually ignored or not given much attention. I have seen a

female sailor state some pretty solid facts on what needed to happen only to have the person she related the facts to look directly over her and ask the male behind her the question she just answered. How can they overcome these factors? Anyone can get into sailing/boating. There are many women-led clinics, classes and clubs that are designed to be “gentle” on the female candidates. Unfortunately, women still have to be very dedicated and become better than the guys around them in order to move forward. It is always a situation where they have to prove themselves. So we have to work harder, learn all jobs and study more. We have to go out there and sail against the guys and win, or at least show knowledge and skill. There is a long road to mutual respect in our sport. Boats are not gender specific, but the culture is. Women can begin to overcome their fears by joining a women’s boating organization. I am most familiar with the sailing community, and the Women’s Sailing Associations are fabulous ways to get involved and to learn how to get out and enjoy yourself on the water with confidence and knowledge. What can boaters look forward to at the SCYA Women’s Boating Clinic? Both Gail Hine’s Sailing Convention for Women (formerly an SCYA event and still successful) and SCYA’s Clinic depend on

the volunteerism of knowledgeable women coaches. This fact alone shows the strength and respect that women have gained in this sport. The coaches cover topics all over the map and most are overqualified on their topics. I am so proud of all of them for getting to where they are in this sport, and especially for their propensity to give back. This second rendition of the Women’s Boating Clinic is still in the workshop planning stages. The workshops provided will depend on the women who volunteer with ideas and knowledge they are ready to share. We have just started recruiting coaches and already have a wonderful slate of ladies ready to share and have begun developing their workshops for the clinic. For me, it is quite easy to find and recruit sailors and sailboats and build out sailing topics for the clinic. I am not a part of the “powerboating scene” and need guidance in finding the ladies and power vessels for this event. We hope to provide more powerboating workshops, especially on the water. We feel this has been neglected in other venues. The clinic will be held at Los Angeles Yacht Club on Sept. 7, 2019. We will host close to 200 ladies who should come ready to learn, gain confidence and have so much fun they won’t know which was the best part of the day.

„„ MARINE GROUP BOAT Works made Boat International’s “The Best Yards for a Superyacht Reboot” list. MGBW ranked third in the U.S. and seventh place overall among the world’s renowned shipyards. Furthering its recognition haul, MGBW was awarded the 2018 Refit of the Year by the U.S. Superyacht Association for its multi-million-dollar renovation of Scout II. MGBW credits the international recognition to its workforce of approximately 200 tradespeople skilled in fabrication, welding, pipefitting, sheet metal and machinery.

Work wasn’t yet complete at press time, but the launch ramp is available to boaters. Additional information about the Shelter Island Boat Launch Ramp upgrades can be found at portofsandiego.org/sibl.

ASK A BROKER

BROKERAGE ADVICE

MARCH QUESTION:

I feel like I know my boat pretty well. What can a broker add to my grasp of my vessel when it’s time to sell?

A yacht sales professional will prepare a complete and accurate listing of the specifications of your boat that will be used to develop the print advertising, electronic advertising and entry into the multiple listing services (MLS). In a matter of hours, a full description and photographs of your boat can be made available to brokers and buyers around the world, or right next door, with a central contact person — your professional broker — available to answer questions, qualify buyers, and arrange showings. Source: Certified Professional Yacht Brokers (cpyb.net) A 10 percent deposit on a boat can be a lot of money. What is my broker going to do to protect it?

The customer’s 10 percent earnest money deposit, based on the offer price, is safeguarded in an escrow account.

All licensed brokerages are required by [Washington] state law to maintain such an account, protecting a buyer’s investment with the deposit of all money into this protected fund where it does not co-mingle with the brokerage’s operating capital. Source: Northwest Yacht Brokers Association (nwyachtbrokers.com)

A lot of boats seem to be uninsured. What’s my incentive to insure mine?

Marinas, lenders and shipyards require proof of insurance. Your California yacht broker and marine insurance agent can help determine the coverage you need. Insurance costs depend upon several factors, including: •  Value of boat •  Age of boat •  Type of boat

•  Your boating qualifications and experience •  Where and how you plan to use the boat •  Surveyor recommendations Source: California Yacht Brokers Association (cyba.info) Boats of any substantial value and routinely exposed to marine-related risks are better insured with a specialized policy. In addition to the most obvious risks such as fire, theft, and sinking, a boat insurance policy should address issues including medical and personal liability protection, towing, personal property and effects, and uninsured boaters. More policies now address an owner’s potential liability for environmental fines in case of a fuel spill or other event that results in water pollution. Insurance experts recommend that coverage be an “all risk” policy. Such a policy states that unless a risk is specifically excluded in the policy language, the insurance company will cover everything else. Source: nwyachtbrokers.com

When you create a whole category, you’re allowed to reinvent it. At Bertram, we’ve got plenty of history. We took sportfishing to uncharted waters, introduced the first production deep-vee hull, and created the large offshore “battlewagon” category. But the story of Bertram is one about never looking back. Which is why we’re introducing the Bertram 61, a new leader in its class. Though to be fair to the rest of the class, it’s really in a category of its own. The new 61 is unmistakably Bertram, and undeniably original. And those sharp, clean lines are just the beginning. Get ready to experience performance, durability and comfort like nothing else on the water. In true Bertram fashion, we took every detail, and cranked it up to 11. That means rugged infused vinylester construction, a modern deep-vee hull, 1925MHP CAT diesel engines, a panoramic salon windshield, Octoplex digital switching, a Seakeeper gyro stabilizer, the finest appliances and components, and all of it comes standard. The Bertram 61 is like nothing that’s come before it. It’s hard to admit, but not even another Bertram comes close. We’re proud of our past, but when you’re a true original, you can’t be afraid to write a completely new chapter.
