Cape Charles Yacht Center, a new mega-yacht facility, is being built at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay in Cape Charles, Va. and features an 18-foot-deep channel for easy access to the Atlantic Ocean. The facility is a perfect midway point between Florida and New England and will have a full-service boatyard. Amenities include a 75-ton lift, 1,000 feet of face dockage and ample electricity up to 480 amps.
Stella Maris Village is a new development located on Long Island in the Bahamas. The village is a family-run boutique hotel resort. The marina and international airport are only a few minutes' drive from the village filled with a mix of bars and restaurants. The area provides guests with an array of activities including kayaking, cycling, fishing, and scuba diving, and the Stella Maris Marina, accommodating vessels up to 100 feet, is located next door.
Govino was originally created as a trade tool to help professional salespeople showcase their wines, but there has been an even bigger demand for govino in the boating world. Flexible and incredibly thin, govino is comprised of a food-safe, BPA-free polymer, which reflects a wine's color and projects its aromatics much like fine crystal stemware. It is shatterproof, reusable and ultimately recyclable.
Marinalife magazine, published four times a year, is focused on the cruising lifestyle. The magazine includes articles on where to cruise, new marina destinations, events, cruising stories and a directory of the many great discounts available to Marinalife card holders.

DONâ€™T MISS MARDI GRAS: MARCH 4, 2014
Days Bay St. Louis, Mississippi
Bay St. Louis, a 300-year-old town loaded with charm and a general sense of wellbeing, is an easy cruise from New Orleans. In 2013, Budget Travel magazine designated it one of the top three “Coolest Small Towns in America.” Anchored by the century-old Hancock County Courthouse, the burg has a vibrant arts colony and plenty of restaurants and shops. Pick up a
Mardi Gras Celebration in New Orleans.
Tie up at Orleans Marina (504-288-2351, marinasinneworleans.com), a quick stroll from downtown, or save 10 percent on transient dockage as a Marinalife member at Seabrook Marine (504-283-9801, seabrookmarine.com). With all there is to see and do in the city, it might be hard to tear yourself away, but weekend adventures await along the 62 miles of Mississippi’s Gulf Coast to the northeast. Rich in charm and personality — as well as a fascinating history that includes French and Spanish settlements, the Civil War, oil exploration and several devastating hurricanes — the region’s people and environment possess a spirit of survival that cannot be eroded.
Hancock County Tourism Bureau
Words that describe the cuisine of New Orleans can also be used to define the flavor of the city: The people are a roux of French, Spanish, African, English and Native American heritage, and their cultures combine to create a rich gumbo of experiences to satisfy every taste. Since it’s impossible to “see” the city in a short time, it’s best to concentrate on a geographic section or a specific interest. History, culture, cuisine, voodoo, churches, cemeteries, Civil War sites, ghosts, vampires, music, art, plantations, swamps, and more can be explored via tour bus, bicycle, foot, Segway or paddleboard. To get the lay of the land in a relatively short amount of time, take a tour on one of the City Sightseeing New Orleans’s opentop double-decker buses. The hop-on, hop-off plan offers maximum flexibility, and stops include the St. Louis Cemetery, Mardi Gras World, the French Market and the National World War II Museum (tip: the museum features a Tom Hanks-produced film and has an on-site restaurant that serves excellent vintage cocktails).

walking/biking tour map and follow it to places including the 1928 train depot, which houses the Mardi Gras Museum and the Alice Moseley Folk Art and Antiques Museum. A cannot-miss for music fanatics is historic 100 Men Hall (303 Union St., 228-342-5770), a 2011 recipient of a Blues Trail marker from the Mississippi Blues Commission. “The Hall,” a major stop on the Chitlin’ Circuit of the 1930s through 1960s, is once again a live-music venue hosting well-known performers. Dock your vessel for the night at Diamondhead Marina (228-255-2918, diamondheadms.org), set on the bay.

Despite this unique 100-member name, 12 members originally founded the organization in 1894.
Next stop is Gulfport, which has six times the population of leisurely Bay St. Louis. Like many gulf cities, Gulfport was nearly destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005 but is steadily being rebuilt and restored. The very highly rated children’s museum, Lynn Meadows Discovery Center
Days Biloxi, Mississippi
There are great stretches of open land between Gulfport and Biloxi. Beaches are the main natural attraction here, while casinos top the list of man-made attractions. Biloxi has long been the place to party and play along the coast. The area has been hit by two major hurricanes — Camille in 1969 and Katrina in 2005 — and both times the casino industry has played a major role in the city’s return to glitz and glamour after the storms. Gaming houses range from backwater barges to deluxe resort-entertainment complexes. Nine major casinos lure excitement seekers to their shows, dining venues and the chance to “beat the house” at the tables or slots.
(246 Dolan Ave., 228-897-6039), occupies a renovated 1915 elementary school. Kids of all ages enjoy the diverse interactive exhibits on the six-acre grounds. Lovers of classic vehicles should drop by the Busted Wrench Garage Museum (2311 29th St., 228-617-6660), where vintage cars, motorcycles, boats, posters and other memorabilia fill a 6,000-square-foot space. One of the top local restaurants is the Flyin’ Jalapeno (1101 Broad Ave., 228-222-3216), where the crowds devour
fresh, flavorful burritos, nachos and salads. Gulfport marks the beginning of Gulf Islands National Seashore, which stretches 160 miles to Fort Walton Beach, Fla. Most of the nearly 140,000 acres of park are under water. There are five wildlife-packed barrier islands that define the Mississippi portion, and many spots on them are accessible to boaters. Tie up at Gulfport Yacht Club (228-863-6796, gulfportyachtclub.org) for a relaxing stay.
The Casino Hopper trolley doesn’t just run between the beaches and the blackjack games. Ride it to many of the city’s attractions, including the stunning Ohr-O’Keefe Museum (386 Beach Blvd., 228-374-5547), which has excellent art exhibitions and Frank Gehry-designed buildings. Other sites worth checking out include the 1848 Biloxi Lighthouse (corner of U.S. 90 and Porter Ave.) and the Maritime & Seafood Museum (115 1st St., 228-435-6320), which preserves the heritage of two of the area’s most important commercial pursuits. For a fun island ambiance, drop by Shaggy's Bar & Grill (1763 Beach Blvd., 228-432-5005) — the fresh seafood, cold margaritas and matchless water views make it a favorite destination for locals and vacationers. The cuisine and atmosphere at Mary Mahoney’s Old French House (110 Rue Magnolia, 228-374-0163) are beyond legendary. Great care was taken to preserve much of the building’s original character when the home, dating back to 1737,
was turned into a restaurant in 1962. The elegant New Orleans-style courtyard, shaded by a centuries-old live oak, is a knockout. Dock your boat in the middle of town at Biloxi Small Craft Harbor (228-436-4062, biloxi.ms.us) or Biloxi Boardwalk Marina (228-432-2628, biloxiboardwalkmarina.com), which has an on-site waterfront restaurant called the Hook Up. To be within walking distance of some of the casinos, head instead to the Maritime & Seafood Industry Museum’s Schooner pier, which has 22 slips and 200 feet of floating dockage. Win or lose, you’ll be just a short jaunt from your vessel. m l
Along with casinos and golf, the beaches in Biloxi are one of the city's biggest draws with their soft, white sands and ideal swimming conditions.
The state’s first casinos opened in 1992. Now, there are nine first-class casino resorts in Biloxi.

> JOHN AND PAULETTE LEE
Be Careful What You Wish For o live aboard, or not to live aboard? That was the question for John and Paulette Lee as they stood only a handshake away from trading their 42-foot NordicTug for their dream boat, a 58-foot Kadey Krogen. It all started when their Nordic Tug was due for its annual service work at Deltaville Marina in Virginia. While heading south on the Chesapeake Bay from Baltimore, the weather had turned, bringing howling winds and churning seas. Rather than continuing on, John and Paulette opted to dock for the night at Calvert Marina in Solomons, Maryland. The next morning they woke to what seemed like an abandoned marina with no boats in sight and rinsed off the residue from the night before. Dennis Fox from Bellingham, Wash., came walking down the docks and started a
BY ANNA BARTHELME
conversation with the couple about his interest in Nordic Tugs (which are built in Anacortes, Wash.). Conversation flowed for over an hour before they thought to ask Dennis what he was doing at the marina. Dennis and his wife Julie had brought their 58 Kadey Krogan, Sea Fox, to Washburns Boatyard, just around the corner. “Well, my boat’s for sale” explained Dennis. The next two days were spent entertaining the idea of trading their vessels, but John and Paulette had no intention of wasting anyone’s time — this trade was too good to be true. On the third day, Dennis presented John and Paulette a trade offer that was shockingly too good to be true. With a handshake, the deal was done. John and Paulette were now owners of their dream boat, their Kadey Krogen 58 they would name Seamantha.The rest is history.

Marinalife spoke with John and Paulette to get their perspective of living on board.
ML: How do you maintain relationships with family/friends along the way?
ML: What makes the Kadey Krogen 58 model your “dream boat”? P: Perhaps it was the homey feel when you walk on to any model or the reputation for a functional design and fine construction. All I can say is that from the first time I walked on to a Kadey Krogen 58 several years back, I knew this would be the one. J: Once we saw the Kadey Krogen model at a variety of boat shows and Trawler Fest’s, the decision was easy. The abundance of storage, styling and the interior layout of each model brings a low-key feel when you walk on board.
ML: What have been your favorite marina/anchorage stops while cruising? P: There are many smaller marinas that may not have the services or convenience of others but are “special spots” because of where they are located (refer to Paulette’s “Special Spots”). J: I love experiencing different cultures and exploring the tremendous amount of history you would never have flying or driving. I enjoy walking around the town of Montreal as well as the remoteness of the Exumas, where you can snorkel, swim, and discover islands.
ML: How do you provision your boat? P: Believe it or not, we order a great deal from Amazon.com. You learn how long a roll of toilet paper will last, how long broccoli will keep before it must be cooked and how far a case of wine can get you. J: We like to have fresh produce stocked up for 1 to 2 weeks. Going down the ICW we could tell you where the high quality stores and farmers markets are all the way to Stuart, Florida.
P: After meeting new friends at marinas, we hated the idea of departing, thinking we’ll never see them again. We kept running into a lot of the same people, and true to their word — they kept in touch! People just being people, welcoming, helpful and sincere. J: We actually see many of them more now than before. As we travel up and down the coast we often pass within driving distance of their homes. Some even enjoy cruising with us. m l

When did you become manager at Schooner Island Marina? I started working for McKee Yacht Sales at the marina in 2002. Shortly afterward, corporate wanted to change the management style for the marina. Having experience as a project manager for 25 years in the corporate world made me the perfect fit. Tell us a wacky boater story. Our marina is very family oriented, but boaters like to party, and on occasion it can get out of hand. Once a boater fell into the water during some partying on his boat. He denied falling into the water; however, we captured his splash on our security camera. What celebrity do you think you most look like? I have been told that I look like Rick Harrison from “Pawn Stars.” If you could be anyone else, who would it be? Bill Boyce, the host of IGFA Saltwater Adventures, because I love to fish. He has fished all over the world and gets paid for doing what he loves.

Pirate’s Cove Resort and Marina is host for the area’s most popular fishing tournaments including the Sailfish Classic.
BY JEANNE CRAIG
The city of Stuart, set along Florida’s renowned Treasure Coast and just north of Palm Beach, is beloved for its historic and pedestrian-friendly downtown. Over the years, it has evolved from a small, quiet fishing village into a bustling boating hub. Even today, many things in the community revolve around fishing (local charter captains will proudly tell you that Stuart is the Sailfish Capital of the World), but there are also enough shops and sights to satisfy those people in your crew who aren’t crazy about baiting hooks and dragging lines. The St. Lucie River runs through and around Stuart, and a stroll along the floating dock known as the Riverwalk is a great way to connect with the energy of the town. There's a big wood platform at one end where concerts are held each Sunday from November through April. Don't miss the many locally owned boutiques, restaurants, galleries and cafes lining quaint Main Street nearby. Many visitors to the area can't resist a trip or two out onto the St. Lucie River itself. Much of the waterway is blessed with lush, natural beauty — if you're lucky, you might even see a manatee.
Fisherman flock to Stuart, the Sailfish Capital of the World, searching the waters for popular game including wahoo, mahi and grouper among others.
Cafes, boutiques and galleries line the streets of downtown Stuart.
For an even bigger adventure, head to the St. Lucie Inlet Preserve Park, accessible only by boat. Tie up there and mosey along the 3/4-mile boardwalk that meanders from dense mangroves to beach dunes. There are lots of great places to raft-up, too, including the ever-popular Stuart sandbar in the ICW near Sailfish Point. However, when navigating these waters captains should pay close attention, as there are many tricky shallow areas and shoals. If you’re game for some more exploring, follow the ICW to Manatee Pocket and the historic village of Port Salerno. Situated just south of the St. Lucie Inlet, Manatee Pocket is also known as the Crossroads, as this is where the Intracoastal intersects with the Okeechobee Waterway. It's home to several marinas and boatyards, and there are terrific local restaurants, too. And, of course, then there’s the fishing. The sport is taken very seriously around Stuart, and a large fleet of charter boats offers both inshore and offshore expeditions. Many are docked at Pirate’s Cove Marina and specialize in sailfish, marlin, kingfish, wahoo and other pelagic species. And even if you never really liked fishing, you just might get hooked in a town like Stuart. ml

There's a sense of deja vu the first time stepping ashore in Lahaina. One may think their GPS malfunctioned and routed their yacht to the Florida Keys rather than the Hawaiian island of Maui. For Front Street in Lahaina, has all the familiar trappings of Duval Street in Key West. Restored and faux 19th century architecture now house bars, restaurants, art galleries and souvenir shops chockablock. In season, the population can quadruple due to tourists visiting the city. But if one can look past the hawkers selling snorkeling adventures and surfing lessons, a peek at a fascinating slice of Hawaiian history awaits.
Hawaii Tourism Authority (HTA) Tor Johnson
Lahaina is one of the most fascinating historic towns in Hawaii. Lahaina Harbor once provided a safe haven for whaling fleets and sail-powered freighters.
The island of Maui was settled by Polynesians from the Marquesas who paddled and sailed their canoes across vast tracts of the Pacific Ocean around 400 A.D. They were followed by a wave of Tahitian settlers about 350 years later. The Tahitians laid the foundations of Hawaiian language, religion and culture. After the island's founding, a hereditary group of chieftains governed different sections of Maui. The chiefdom in West Maui was called Lele, and ruled from the site of present day Lahaina. Maui was also a demi-god of the Polynesians and a rascal in Hawaiian mythology. It was Maui who used his great fish hook to pull the Hawaiian Islands up from the ocean floor. And it was Maui who snared the sun with his ropes to slow it down in its path to create longer days in the summer for raising crops and drying bark cloth. Through the 16th century Maui continued to prosper under a strict adherence to a four-tier caste system, a complex land tenure system and a society goverened by kapu or taboos. The first documented European that there is documentary evidence of coming to Maui is the English explorer Capt. James Cook who just sailed by looking for an
anchorage in the autumn of 1778. Eight years later, French Admiral De Galaup landed just south of where the town of Kihei is located today. In 1779, Capt. Cook was on the big island of Hawaii where he met with a young chief with a string of 12 names. Rather than continually reciting his litany of names, he was come to be known as Kamehameha. Kamehameha had a vision, first to unite the clans of the island of Hawaii under one king (himself ) and then to conquer all the Hawaiian Islands and rule them as his united kingdom. He accomplished the first task in 1791. Maui fell to King Kamehameha four years later after an assault by almost 1,000 war canoes and 10,000 of the king's soldiers. The only island not to succumb to the new king was Kauai. Even so, the Kingdom of Hawaii was declared as complete in 1810, and Kamehameha I ruled as an absolute monarchy. After the king died in 1819, his son, Prince Liholiho, was crowned King Kamehameha II. The following year he moved his kingdom's capital from the western shore of the big island to the western shore of Maui and the town of Lahaina. Lahaina remained
the capital of the Kingdom of Hawaii for 25 years. During that time two groups with very different philosophies became prominent: whalers and missionaries. In the early 1790s Yankee whaling fleet from New Bedford, Mass., expanded into the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Peru in its ever increasing need to meet the demand for sperm oil for lamps and lubrication. As soon as they opened a new fishery, the whalers hunted the sperm whales to extinction, and new hunting grounds needed to be found. In 1820, the first New Bedford whaling ship hunted sperm whales on the Japan Ground. It was located halfway between Hawaii and Japan, and the Hawaiian Islands became a perfect waypoint for stocking up on fresh local produce and water and making ship repairs and finding new crew. Honolulu and Lahaina became the main Pacific ports for the North Pacific whaling fleet. Although Lahaina did not have a well-protected harbor like Honolulu, Lahaina Roads had good holding and became a busy anchorage. In 1824, more than 100 whaling ships anchored off Lahaina, and 30 years later it

Pertroleum oil had been reverend and even shelled the town with discovered in Pennsylvania and “black gold”
supplanted the use of whale oil. The Confederate navy and its raiders destroyed many of the Yankee whalers during the Civil War. Sugar cane and pineapples and the plantation system used to grow those crops soon provided enourmous profits to the descendants of the original missionaries. Today, whaling in Lahaina is limited to whale watching during the December-toMay season. Visitors still continue to come to Lahaina by sea. The town has a small, picturesque harbor, but the majority of slips are used by commercial boats providing sportfishing, diving, snorkeling, whale watching and sailing trips. But the Lahaina Yacht Club has saved the day by providing seven free moorings just outside the harbor entrance.

BY OLIVIA SCHLEICHER
Tucked along the Baja California coastline, approximately 60 nautical miles south of San Diego, is the Mexican city of Ensenada, also known as the Cinderella of the Pacific. Ensenada is the only deep-water port in Baja. Couple this with its year-round Mediterranean temperatures and it’s easy to understand how tourism is one of the town’s main industries. Stroll along the malecón, the waterfront walkway, to take in the town at a leisurely pace. Vendors sell everything from pottery to woven blankets to leather goods, and lively cantinas and bars line the street. Because of its dry, sunny climate, the region produces 90 percent of Mexico’s wine, and Ensenada is dotted with wine-tasting rooms. Stop in at Bodegas de Santo Tomas (santo-tomas.com) to sample Cabernet Sauvignon and tempranillo from one of the oldest vineyards in the country. Swing by Ensenada’s indoor-outdoor seafood market to pick up just-caught tuna, dorado and more to prepare back on board, and grab a fish taco for the road — it’s an 34 marinalife.com
iconic Baja snack believed to have originated in Ensenada. Another don’t-miss spot: the Riviera Del Pacifico, a hacienda-style 1920s mansion with spectacular gardens, ballrooms and halls. During Prohibition, this former casino-hotel attracted many wealthy Americans, including Bing Crosby and Rita Hayworth. You’ll also want to explore some of what nature has on offer. If you’re visiting at any point from January through March, climb aboard a charter with Sergio’s Sportfishing Center (619-399-7224) to witness part of the annual 10,000-mile gray whale migration from Alaska to Baja. A short cab ride south is La Bufadora, the blowhole that is the largest marine geyser in North America, shooting water 80 feet into the air. Scuba divers should venture out to the Arch, an underwater hot spot in front of the blowhole. Anglers can drop anchor near the Punta Banda peninsula to fish for more than 90 species. And if you just want to laze in the sun? Estero Beach, just south of Ensenada, is the perfect sandy destination for the day. ml

THREE MEN AND A
POWER CAT BY ANNA BARTHELME
I always thought that someday I would retire, buy a boat and travel down the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) with my wife. Even though I’m not retired yet, I bought a 3470 Glacier Bay Catamaran, Almost There, in September 2013, and the opportunity to take the trip became a reality. I traveled from Baltimore to Key Largo, Florida with my two retired friends, John and Denny, both of whom readily volunteered once they found out they wouldn’t have to pay for fuel. Instead of writing my story about the food I ate and things that broke on the boat, I would find more interesting things along the way. 1,350 miles, 1,600 gallons of fuel and 80 engine hours later, this is the tale of our journey.
From left: Denny, Richard and John arrive at Key Largo, Fla. aboard Almost There.
Baltimore, Maryland to St. Michaels, Maryland
Portsmouth, Virginia to Coinjock, North Carolina
There were a few things to organize before we left, such as power cords and hoses, but that was simple compared to figuring out which switch did what. We cruised around 15-17 knots, which is a nautical term for slow, making our way to St. Michaels Marina located on the Miles River. They have a terrific Maritime Museum, where they restore and display a variety of boats used by watermen of the Chesapeake.
Most of the bridges that we would have to go through, including the Great Bridge Lock in Chesapeake, Va., are timed perfectly so that you can go through one and then just miss the next one. It would take all day to go 50-miles! The heat grew, and as we wilted, we decided to test the generator. Good thing we did. The generator was overheating and had no coolant in it. When it still wouldn’t work after filling it, we had a good drill closing and reopening the boat to try and cool off. Just as we decided to speed up so we could get a breeze, we hit a no-wake zone and finally arrived at Coinjock.
DAY 2: St. Michaels, Maryland to Portsmouth, Virginia We re-entered the Chesapeake Bay from the Miles River to a glowing blue sky with John noting that we were, “as lucky as a twodollar hound dog on Elvis Presley Day.” We did see a slew of fishing boats in the shallows of the Chesapeake, an abandoned ghost ship fully out of the water and a lot of water …
DAY 4: Coinjock, North Carolina to Morehead City, North Carolina This is one big state. When we awake tomorrow we will still be in North Carolina. Just before entering the Pamlico Sound, which runs just inside Cape Hatteras, we saw a huge school of bait being chased by a pod of Porpoise.
DAY 5: Morehead City, North Carolina to Southport, North Carolina Upon arrival into Morehead City, we tried the generator again. It ran a bit rough but we thought that it would be OK until we noticed smoke. Now we have the interest of everyone in the marina. It seems that if there is a boat with something wrong, everyone shows up to help you. With some help we were able to rescue the generator so we started the next run outside from Beaufort Inlet to the Frying Pan Shoals, a long shifting area of shoals off the coast of Cape Fear, North Carolina.
Fernandina Beach, Florida to Ponce Inlet, Florida
Miami, Florida to Key Largo, Florida
We departed from Fernandina Beach and decided to stay on the ICW. After hours of no-wake zones, we managed to get to the outside, where the running was faster. After 1,000 miles of traveling on the ocean, we pulled into the Ponce Inlet and docked at the Inlet Harbor Restaurant & Marina just north of New Smyrna Beach. A half-mile walk brought us across the island to the beach, where we went for our first swim.
Beaufort, South Carolina to Fernandina Beach, Florida
On arrival into Government Cut by the port of Miami, I felt as if I had lost steering. We anchored right inside the west side of Star Island when we noticed the completely broken steering arm. This coincided with a “catastrophic failure” (the manuals words not ours) of all throttle and controls. After an elaborate rigging of lines, we were able to hold the throttle and steering on both engines to run at cruising speed. We didn’t slow down or move anything until we were 100 yards from my home canal in Key Largo.
Southport, North Carolina to Beaufort, South Carolina Departing out of Cape Fear Inlet, we progressed southwest on the ICW, and we passed Charleston Harbor, where Fort Sumter was flying the flag at half-staff for 9/11. To make up for lost time, we traveled the 200 miles to Beaufort.
Departing Beaufort, we were on our way past Parris Island and into the Atlantic Ocean. The seas were flat as we hummed along for hours. We passed though a Right Whale Conservation zone, where you are not to approach any of the Right Whales within 500 yards. The reason they were named Right Whales was because they were the “right” ones to kill back in the days of the whaling industry. We soon arrived at St. Mary’s Inlet, and docked in Fernandina Beach.
Almost There (unnamed at the time) tied up in Baltimore ready to head south.
View of the Lighthouse at the Maritime Museum in St. Michaels.
Ponce Inlet, Florida to Miami, Florida Off we went, and every couple of hours we would check our distance and fuel levels. The flat seas allowed us to choose any inlet, so we refueled in Jupiter, Florida. 200 gallons of fuel and a half hour later, we were back in the ocean. Record time!
The only thing I learned from our 10day voyage was that I was wrong. Not about how much fun the trip would be, the friends who joined me or the boat I bought. I was wrong thinking I wouldn’t write like every seaman’s eventful journey — about the people I met, food we ate and how we managed the breakdowns in between. In the end, it’s about similar experiences that help bind you to the marine community. ml To view this cruise online, visit marinalife.com/cruisingweinstein WINTER 2014

THE DAY THE BAY WENT
HOW CHESAPEAKE BOOTLEGGERS HELPED QUENCH THE NATION’S THIRST
B Y S U S A N E L N I C K I WA D E
eer riots in Baltimore — federal agents attacked with bricks and a jar of mayonnaise … bottles of moonshine stashed at the bottom of oyster bushels … These are just a few snapshots of the mayhem that ensued on the Chesapeake Bay during Prohibition. On Jan. 16, 1920, booze was banned in America. Beer, wine, champagne, rum and other distilled spirits became illegal. The Chesapeake Bay, along with the entire United States, checked in for a 13-year stint in rehab..The 18th Amendment allowed a few exceptions. Places of worship could pour wine for religious ceremonies. You could stomp grapes in the bathtub and make wine at home, as long as you didn’t sell any of it. And if you felt sick, doctors could prescribe alcohol for “medicinal purposes” from liquor-dispensing pharmacies. This loophole grew so popular that by March 1920, 70,000 whiskey prescriptions in Maryland and Washington D.C., were filled. Otherwise, happy hour was legally over. The movement to make America sober was championed by the Women’s Christian Temperance Union (WCTU), The Anti-Saloon League, Methodist ministers and others who blamed demon rum for a menagerie of social ills. For centuries, America’s tradition of drinking beer and wine seemed manageable, but the influx of hard liquor caused a dramatic spike in alcoholism in the 19th century. “Between 1800 and 1830, average annual intake was more than five gallons of hard stuff per American, a drinking level nearly three times that of late 20th-century America. Foreigners visiting the United States … noted with disdain that the whole country seemed to be on a national binge,” says Eric Mills in “Chesapeake Rumrunners of the Roaring Twenties.”
Catch Me If You Can Some people embraced a respite from rum. Others believed that the government had no business dictating morality or lifestyles. The Chesapeake Bay’s 11,600 miles of shoreline — with all its remote coves and inlets — was a perfect setting for a cat-and-mouse game with Prohibition officers. When federal dry agents shut down saloons, speakeasies popped up all around the Bay. Hundreds of moonshine stills appeared along the Eastern Shore, Southern Maryland and Virginia’s Tidewater region. White lightning and other intoxicating liquors were secretly brewed in the Chesapeake countryside. Some was kept for local consumption, but thousands of gallons of hooch were transported to thirsty city dwellers. It’s rumored that more than half of the Bay’s population joined the moonshine bonanza during Prohibition. The home-grown booze industry paled in comparison to imports from abroad. Americans never lost their taste for French champagne, British gin, Caribbean rum or Scotch whiskey. Ships from around the globe lined up along the Atlantic coastline from Virginia to New England, cautiously floating three miles offshore in international waters along a stretch called Rum Row. Sea vessels’ bellies were filled with cases of fine imports, and crews eagerly awaited smaller speedboats to transport the liquid gold to shore. When they made it through the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay, rumrunners disappeared amid the isolated marshlands and hidden coves to unload their bounty.
Resourceful Chesapeake watermen souped up their engines to outrace the Coast Guard and rigged boats for carrying contraband. Fishermen hid Mason jars of booze in bushels under mounds of oysters or built false bottoms in boats to stash cases of hooch.
Say Goodbye to Southern Comfort Even though Prohibition was the law of the land, the country was deeply divided over alcohol. Teetotalers heralded the Noble Experiment as the nation’s salvation. Others refused to hand over their martini shakers. Attitudes varied from state to state, and the differences were clearly illustrated in the Bay’s border states of Maryland and Virginia. Along with 17 other states, Virginia went dry in 1916 and outlawed liquor sales four years before the rest of the country. Norfolk tried to stay wet, and many taverns stayed open, because they didn’t feel the federal enforcement pinch until the 18th Amendment was enacted nationwide. When the clock struck midnight on Jan. 19, 1920, Norfolk’s streets were flooded with WCTU leaders and other anti-alcohol revelers celebrating their victory. Almost 15,000 jubilant teetotalers joined a parade spearheaded by a flamboyant Evangelist preacher named Billy Sunday, who had fought against demon rum for decades. Sunday marched through the town next to a 20-foot-long black coffin symbolizing the death of John Barleycorn. When the parade ended at a Methodist church, Sunday worked the crowd into a frenzy by jumping on top of the coffin, singing hymns and delivering a fire-and-brimstone sermon that rocked the rafters. The next day, Virginia gave the official last call for alcohol. Norfolk’s 115 bars were closed. Saloon signs and billboards promoting booze were pulled down and destroyed. Virginia would have its share of rumrunners, bootleggers and speakeasies, but as far as the state was concerned, alcohol in the Commonwealth was dead.
Naughty Bohemians Stand Their Ground Maryland was a horse of a different color. As a young colony, its leaders tried to curb alcohol consumption, and in 1642 public drunkenness was rewarded with a fine of a 100-pound bag of tobacco. Three centuries later, when Congress tried to impose national anti-alcohol rules, Marylanders replied with a collective “mind your own business.” Maryland was the only state that refused WINTER 2014
to ratify Prohibition and allocate funds to enforce the new laws. Simply stated: Maryland was defiantly wet. Resistance to Prohibition started at the top in Annapolis and trickled down to police forces and average citizens. Alfred Richie, the four-term governor from 1920 to 1935, wasn’t much of a drinker, but he believed the federal government had overstepped its bounds and was stomping on his state’s rights. Nationally recognized for his anti-temperance views, he scoffed at squandering Maryland’s funds or backing the 18th Amendment just because the feds wanted to eliminate booze. Law enforcement was lackluster at best. Tavern operators greased local policemen’s palms so they’d turn a blind eye to thriving booze businesses. Baltimore, the wettest of all cities, became a hotbed for importing alcohol. Speakeasies flourished in every neighborhood. The Horse You Came in On Saloon, which is still serving spirits in Fells Point, boasts that it operated before, during and after Prohibition. “The Horse was located next door to an alcohol-dispensing The Horse You Came In On Saloon was established in 1775 and pharmacy back then,” says General Manager, remains a hot spot in Baltimore's Trent O’Connor. “After people picked up their Fells Point neighborhood. ‘medicinal’ Jack Daniels at the drug store, they’d walk through a secret door into our speakeasy for more liquid refreshment.” John Stevens Restaurant, just a few blocks away, has been a favorite watering hole for sailors and watermen since the early 1800s. It stayed open throughout Prohibition by selling oysters and serving “soft drinks” to parched patrons. Baltimore citizens were especially prickly toward Prohibition agents and infamous for disrupting enforcement efforts. A New York Times headline from March 1927 reported “MOB IN BALTIMORE ATTACKS DRY AGENTS: Crowd of 500 Wields Axes on Autos and Hurls Bricks at 16 Federal Men on Raid.” A rowdy South Baltimore crowd swarmed the officers’ cars, but no one was injured or arrested. “Only three agents were struck — two by stones and one by a jar of mayonnaise which broke and injured chiefly his personal appearance."
The Gin Rickey Gin was among the favorite intoxicating liquors. The Gin Rickey was first made in the 1880s with bourbon at Shoomaker’s Bar in Washington, D.C., and was named after Democrat lobbyist Colonel Joe Rickey. While F. Scott Fitzgerald was writing “The Great Gatsby,” he found inspiration in this crisp cocktail. 2 oz. dry gin ½ fresh lime squeezed and dropped in the glass 5 oz. soda water or sparkling mineral water
The Sidecar During Prohibition, outrageous was the norm, and normal was so old-fashioned. The Sidecar epitomizes a grand entrance at a gin joint. It’s named after a WWI army captain who liked to arrive at his local speakeasy in a motorcycle sidecar. Bet he also puffed on a Cuban cigar. Shake this mixture well with cracked ice and strain into a chilled, sugar-rimmed cocktail glass.
The Bee’s Knees
This faded signage is still visible on a brick building on S. Broadway Street in Baltimore, MD.

During Prohibition, Americans were divided between dry and wet lifestyles. Scofflaws and other rule breakers invented delectable cocktails that are still worth sipping today. Here are three of that era’s popular libations and the story behind their creation:
3 oz. cognac 2 oz. Cointreau, Grand Mariner or other orange liqueur 1 oz. lemon juice
Happy Days Are Here Again While Baltimore’s resistance to Prohibition took on a unique flair, the entire country shared its concerns about this great social experiment. Corruption ran rampant across the nation, and a sharp rise in alcohol consumption indicated that American temperance was a flop. The 18th Amendment was repealed on Dec. 5, 1933 — just in time for Christmas festivities. America resumed its bottoms-up traditions, and Chesapeake watermen went back to carrying crabs and oysters in their boats. m l
Let’s Party Like It’s 1929!
The Roaring ‘20s gave birth to a host of phrases that toasted the wild side of nature. The superlative Bee’s Knees was reserved for flappers and dappers who had reached the height of excellence — and mixed a little sting with their charm. Be sure to shake well with ice and serve in a chilled glass. ½ jigger of gin 1 teaspoon honey 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Stock Island Marina Village
> STOCK ISLAND MARINA VILLAGE
Stock Island Marina Villages offers vacation boatel rentals (floating home). Stay in either the Red Grouper or the Green Turtle and experience life on the water.
BY OLIVIA SCHLEICHER
xperience the funky vibe of the Florida Keys while relaxing along the waterfront at Stock Island Marina Village, a newly developed facility on Stock Island. Located just a few minutes from downtown Key West, Stock Island is easy to reach but hidden away from all the hustle and bustle of Duval Street. The island was named for the livestock-shipping industry that thrived there during the 1800s. Today, the area is known for its commercial fishing industry, especially as it relates to Key West pink shrimp — shrimp-packing facilities still operate on the isle. Stock Island Marina Village is embracing this rich history — there is a commercial shrimp boat that docks at the property, and there are plans to build an on-site seafood market — while maintaining a facility that is thoroughly up to date. The 230-slip marina, the largest deep-water marina in the Keys, can accommodate vessels up to 300 feet and welcomes both transient and resident boaters. It recently completed the construction of 128 Bellingham concrete floating wet slips, a ship’s store and a captain’s lounge with one of the best views around, a 430-foot floating fuel dock with five high-speed dispensers, a bathhouse and laundry, a tiki bar built by members of the Seminole Nation, a food-and-beverage operation that serves locally caught seafood, a dog park, and a community garden lush with mango, cashew and Key lime trees. As if that weren’t enough, there’s also a new fitness center, gallery space where some of Key West’s top artists show their work, and on-site
fishing, diving, snorkeling and sailing charters are available. The facility’s community is a lively, eclectic mix of boaters, fishermen, artists and craftspeople, and the marina offers courtesy shuttle service to downtown Key West and the airport. Stock Island Marina Village’s mission is to build and maintain a property that is not just “green” but sustainable. Its green initiative includes using solar power — it generates 18kw from the solar panels on the roof, providing energy for the entire marina complex — and using LED lighting to get rid of light pollution and save energy. The hot water for your shower and laundry is heated by solar rooftop hot water heaters. The marina collects rain water off its roofs to water the plants in the community garden, has installed pump-outs at each dock and follows top-notch recycling practices (for instance, there are no plastic bags sold at the ship’s store). The facility is landscaped with native plants to support migratory birds, such as golden warblers, peregrine falcons, and guinea fowl. “he marina was developed to preserve the nautical elements of Key West, while including all the modern amenities of a first-class marina, and built for long — term sustainability ,” says developer Matthew Strunk. If you’re traveling to Key West to relax and enjoy the many things the area has to offer, you can’t find a better piece of paradise than Stock Island Marina Village. ml

ISLAND HOPPING ALONG
THE FLORIDA KEYS B Y C A P T. J E F F W E R N E R
Stephen Frink/Florida Keys News Bureau
The Florida Keys are aptly named, because they do offer the “keys” to a boating paradise unmatched anywhere in our lower 48 states. If you mention those two magic words — the Keys — to any boater in Florida, immediately what springs to mind are visions of sparkling clear waters, snorkeling, scuba diving, tickling for lobsters, deep-sea fishing, back-bay flats fishing, and simply relaxing and letting go. A coral rock archipelago and accompanying barrier reef that stretch 200 nautical miles from Key Biscayne to the Dry Tortugas comprise this national marine sanctuary. And fortunately for boaters, the Keys are easy to transit in all weather, day or night, because the naturally formed Hawk Channel is well marked for buoy hopping and offers comfortable passage when the seas are raging outside the reef in the Gulf Stream. We’ll begin our cruise from the Miami area and head south, keeping the prevailing easterly winds first on our beam and then on our stern as the Keys turn westward.
Located within Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park in Key Largo, the Christ of the Abyss stands at 8.5 feet tall and weighs over 4,000 pounds and is one of the most popular diving attractions.
Postcard Inn Beach Resort & Marina
Holiday Isle Resort Tiki Bar, located at the Postcard Inn Beach Resort & Marina, is famous for its rum runner cocktail (a crowd-pleasing concoction since 1972) and has live entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights.
LEG 1 Key Largo Key Largo offers a relaxed atmosphere during the winter boating season — and, obviously, shares a name with a classic 1948 Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall movie. Strangely enough, there is another Humphrey Bogart connection to Key Largo: The original African Queen, the steam-powered star of the Bogart and Hepburn movie of that same name, has been restored to its original Hollywood splendor and now gives tours around Key Largo. She departs five times daily from Marina Del Mar located at Mile Marker 100 along Highway 1. (By land, locations in the Keys are noted by their mileage from Key West, which is Mile Marker/MM 0). You can pretend to be Mr. Allnut while cruising the Key’s canals. But the real star of Key Largo is John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park. The upland park on Largo Sound offers kayaking and canoeing through mangrove swamps and tropical hammocks, and snorkeling and diving at its marine park out on
the reef. Pick up a mooring ball at Molasses Reef or the perennial favorite Dry Rocks Reef and put on your mask, snorkel and fins. Dry Rocks is home to the foot bronze Christ of the Deep statue, which sits below the surface. Dock your boat overnight at the Ocean Reef Club and experience the megayacht lifestyle. The marina offers just about every amenity you can imagine: golf course, spa, tennis courts, watersports, and even a cooking school for kids.
LEG 2 Islamorada Quick: What does Islamorada mean in Spanish? Time’s up! “Purple island” is the answer. Why the early Spanish explorers named this cayo purple has been lost to history. Today, Islamorada is also known as the Village of Islands and actually encompasses five isles, from Plantation Key in the north to Lower Matecumbe Key in the south. Islamorada is also the Sportfishing Capital of the World and was made
famous by President George H.W. Bush, then a frequent visitor and avid fisherman. Whether your angling leans toward bonefish, tarpon or sailfish, you can have it all here. However, if your interest in sea life is more up close and personal, visit Theater of the Sea to swim and interact with dolphins, sea lions, sharks and stingrays. As you head down Hawk Channel looking for a marina to berth your yacht, you'll pass Hens & Chickens, a well-marked group of shoals off Plantation Key. Turn up Snake Creek to the Florida Bay side of the Keys to find Plantation Yacht Harbor at MM 87. The marina is well protected from the weather and located within a municipal park that has a swimming pool and tennis courts. It is an excellent base from which to start your exploration of the local restaurants and galleries. On the ocean side, the Postcard Inn Beach Resort & Marina (formerly Holiday Isle at MM 84) has been undergoing extensive renovations and improvements. The marina offers dockage for vessels up to 100 feet, and, thankfully, you can still enjoy a cocktail at the muchloved Holiday Isle tiki bar. WINTER 2014
down the hatch, have the bartender at on-property Alma's muddle one for you at the end of the day.
Hawks Cay Resort & Marina
Marathon Marathon, on Vaca Key, is the most developed city between Key West and Key Largo and is the gateway to the Seven Mile Bridge on the Overseas Highway. Marathon is also a boating center with a number of marinas, a mooring field and a boatyard. Access to a large West Marine store, two supermarkets and even a Home Depot make Marathon a great stopover for repairs and reprovisioning. The Marathon Marina, Boatyard & RV Resort, located in Boot Key Channel between green markers 7 and 9, can handle vessels up to 125 feet and has a beautiful new pool, an oceanfront restaurant and bar and maintenance facilities that include a 75-ton travel lift.
The Hawks Cay Marina features 85 slips and allows overnight marina guests access to all of the resort amenities including tennis, several swimming pools and the spa.
LEG 3 Duck Key Next stop is Duck Key — or, more specifically these days, Hawks Cay Resort & Marina at Duck Key. The entrance channel is not for the faint-of-heart mariner when the wind and seas are up and they happen to be on your stern. As you surf down the waves, be prepared to make a sharp 90-degree turn to starboard into a quiet canal that leads to the marina. Hawks Cay is a family-friendly resort with lots of activities geared toward kids and teens. There are five swimming pools, plus outings such as nature hikes and scavenger hunts to keep everyone from getting bored. Swim with Atlantic bottlenose dolphins at the resort’s Dolphin Connection center, or while the kids are being kept busy, relax at the Calm Waters spa with a signature Key lime-mojito body treatment. For a real mojito that goes The stone crab season is only from Oct. 15 to May 15 each year, so don’t miss enjoying them at the Marathon Seafood Festival on March 8, 2014.

LEG 5 Little Palm Island Did you ever see the movie “PT109,” the heroic biopic about a young John F. Kennedy? That was filmed on what is now Little Palm Island Resort & Spa. Still
shown on nautical charts as Munson Island, Little Palm Island is located at the entrance to Newfound Harbor off Little Torch Key. The island is home to the most unique and romantic resort in the Keys, with 15 thatched-roof bungalows that are all luxuriously decorated. There is plenty of dockage for yachts both large and small, but make you reservations early if you plan to be there on a Sunday — brunch is a true culinary experience. And if you have dinner on the beach at sunset, don't be surprised if a tiny Key deer nuzzles up to you at your table. Little Palm Island Resort & Spa, accessible only by boat or seaplane, offers visitors the chance to indulge and enjoy the spa, fine dining and just relax on the beach.
Little Palm Island Resort & Spa
Marathon also has many other dining options, from ultracasual Keys Fisheries, where you can still watch the fishermen come in with their stone-crab catch (stone crab season runs from Oct. 15-May 15), to the elegant Butterfly Café at Tranquility Bay Resort.

The Keys don’t end at Key West; they extend another 68 nautical miles westward, past Marquesas Keys to the Dry Tortugas. Loggerhead Key is the last key in the chain and is marked by Dry Tortugas Lighthouse, built in 1858 and almost 160 feet tall. Ever since then, it has guided ships to safe passage between the Straits of Florida and the Gulf of Mexico. But the main attraction of the Dry Tortugas is on the next-to-last key, Garden Key, which is about three nautical miles east of the lighthouse. That is home to Fort Jefferson and the Dry Tortugas National Park. Fort Jefferson is the largest masonry structure in the Western Hemisphere, built with more than 16 million bricks. Construction of Fort Jefferson began in 1846, and in those days, smooth-bore cannon could not easily damage a brick fort with thick walls. By the time of the Civil War less than 20 years later, rifled cannon had been developed, and they hurled projectiles that could easily destroy a brick fort. Fort Jefferson was rendered obsolete. Dr. Samuel Mudd, who was convicted in the conspiracy to assassinate President Lincoln, lived there as a prisoner before he was pardoned. In order to visit Fort Jefferson on your boat, you must obtain a free permit from the National Park Service. There are six free mooring balls for recreational boats available on a first-come, first-served basis in Garden Key Harbor. These are for daytime use only. If you plan to stay overnight, you are only allowed to anchor no more than a mile from the fort on the sandy bottom of Garden Key Harbor. There are no facilities for water, fuel or provisioning, so you must be self-sufficient. However, spending a day walking around the old fort and learning about its history and construction is an unparalleled experience that is well worth the time and Fort Jefferson began Construction in 1846 and the fort remains the largest masonry structure in the effort to cruise there. Americas. Dry Tortugas National Park is now a National Park accessible by ferry or seaplane.
The Southernmost Point Buoy in the United States marks 90 miles to Cuba and is located on the corner of South and Whitehead Streets in Key West.
The Southernmost Historic Inn was constructed in 1896 and has been a private residence and night club and now a hotel that maintains its original Victorian architecture.
LEG 6 Key West is the southernmost point in the U.S. and offers boaters a swashbuckling history of wreckers and pirates, a wealth of wonderfully restored 19th-century architecture, vibrant art galleries and street performances, great food, one-of-a-kind bars and night clubs and the best drag shows around. The center of activity for yachts is Key West Bight. Now a confluence of marinas, restaurants, bars and shops, it was once home to the Key West shrimp fleet. Conch Harbor Marina, the Key West Bight City Marina, A&B Marina and the Galleon Marina are all located in this historic seaport area. Or stay a few miles outside of downtown on Stock Island at the newly redeveloped Stock Island Marina Village or Oceanside Marina. Linger for a couple of days and you may never leave. Yes, Key West is that good. Ernest Hemingway, Tennessee Williams, Calvin Klein, famed treasure hunter, Mel Fisher, Kelly McGillis and John Audubon have all called Key West home.

7 THINGS EVERY GREAT LOOPER SHOULD KNOW BY BOB DUTHIE
ver dreamed about cruising the 6,000 miles of America’s Great Loop in your own boat. Sure you have. It’s one of the greatest boating adventures in the world, circumnavigating eastern North America by water. Short of hitching a covered wagon to a team of horses and hitting the trail, there’s no better way to see the country the way early explorers of this continent saw it. But that doesn’t make it easy or altogether without risk. Speaking from personal experience, here are seven things that every Great Looper should know before setting out ...
Clearing Wilson Lock on the Tennessee River in Alabama behind five other Loopers.
Set a firm date for the start of your trip. Then, tell all of your friends and family this date. It’s too easy to find some excuse to defer your departure if you don’t do this. Once you tell everybody, you’re committed. No backing down. Depending on where you live, there’s a relatively narrow window on your departure date, so be sure to do your homework. If you live in Canada or the northern states, for example, you can’t leave too late in the season or you could face the onset of winter weather.
Get towing insurance. You’re bound to run aground somewhere. Towing insurance is very economical, and because you’ll be in unfamiliar water most of the time, the probability of running aground will be much higher than in your home waters. The other reason for towing insurance is your engine. You could run out of gas, or your engines could quit for mysterious reason. Towing services are available anywhere on the Loop and even in Canada. In the remote areas, like certain stretches of the Mississippi River, their captains will drive a rescue boat to a launch ramp and then come out to get you. Be sure you have an anchor and lots of rope, so you can anchor while waiting.
Have a set of up-to-date paper charts. You can’t just rely on electronic charts or your smartphone. And don’t use electronic charts that download over the Internet while you’re under way. Electronic charts should be stored locally in the device. You just can’t chance your safety on cell phone or WiFi service when you’re potentially miles and miles away from the nearest city or marina.
Take a shakedown cruise. Don’t leave on the boat you just prepped and/or purchased without getting to know it inside out. This was our first mistake on the Loop. We took possession of our boat, a 1981 Grand Banks trawler at Erie, Pa. A few hours out of Erie headed for Detroit, the wind kicked up 4-to 6-foot waves, and the single engine quit due to plugged fuel filters. It was too rough to change the filters, and we had to call the Coast Guard because no tow operators were open that early in the year. Not a great way to start the trip.
Boats packed the dock during the America’s Great Loop Cruisers’ Association rendezvous.
Learn how to blog before you leave. This is the best way to keep in touch with friends and family — the postcard is long gone — and it also provides a way to download your thoughts and de-stress during your journey. Blog sites like WordPress are userfriendly, free and let you add photos and maps. Best of all, people can register to be notified whenever you make a new post and can respond right on the same Web page.
Leave the firearms at home. There are no pirates in Canada or the U.S., so don’t carry guns unless you’re prepared to stay out of Canada and miss the beautiful canals and the North Channel. Above all, don’t lie to the Canadian border officials about a gun on board. We used the government phone at Rockport on the St. Lawrence River to check in and were given a number we displayed on our window. Subsequently, we were searched twice at Kingston and Little Current. If a gun is found, your boat will be seized on the spot and your trip ended. Flare guns are legal in Canada and can do as much to repel an intruder.
Take your time on the Loop. This could be a once-ina-lifetime adventure. We did it in four legs over two years — six months per leg. In hindsight, that was too fast. I’d like to do it again, but my First Mate would rather go in our 23-foot motorhome.

> THE BLUFFS MARINA
Aerial view of The Bluffs Marina, one of Jupiter’s best-kept secrets.
The Bluffs Marina BY ANNA BARTHELME
ust 15 miles north of West Palm Beach, Fla., is Jupiter Island, one of the easternmost points on the Atlantic seaboard. Jupiter has been an important and popular landmark for cargo ships and pleasure boats for centuries, and it is known for its tropical beauty, elegance and charm. The Bluffs Marina is conveniently located three miles South of the Jupiter Inlet on the east side of the ICW, with direct ocean access via both the Jupiter and Lake Worth inlets. The 10-acre yacht basin features 97 deep-water slips, can accommodate vessels up to 130 feet and is classified as a hurricane-safe harbor. Dockominiums first rose to prominence in the 1980s, when slips were in high demand and scarce. The idea of owning your own piece of the water perfectly coincided with the needs of the time, and dockominiums became an appealing investment for many boaters: They could purchase dock space or a slip, complete with deed and title, and then rent or lease it out through the marina when they themselves weren’t using it. Thus, they’d always be guaranteed dockage when they wanted it but could earn money on the space when they didn’t need it.
At the Bluffs Marina, dockominiums have remained highly sought after. “We have had many slip sales in recent years,” says Mark May, owner of CCB Investors Assets Management, a holding company that controls the remaining slip portfolio. “In fact,” he continues, “we have sold more slips in 2012-2013 than all other Palm Beach-area marinas combined.” At the Bluffs, slip owners rent and lease their property with the help of the association’s dock master. The marina’s amenities include dockside fuel and cable and telephone services. It is minutes by car from Palm Beach International Airport, minutes by foot to gorgeous beaches and only about a mile to the Riverwalk, Jupiter’s new network of scenic waterfront walking and biking trails. Excellent restaurants, dozens of shops and worldclass golf and tennis facilities are also nearby. The Bluffs Marina continues to grow — a pool, private bath/shower area and additional parking are anticipated. “The Bluffs has been Jupiter’s best kept secret,” says May, “but the word is getting out. We have already sold many of our larger slips. People should come buy their own slice of the waterfront before it’s all gone!” m l

Ever dream of moving to a seaside town where boating is a way of life? Look no further than these five charming home ports. 60 marinalife.com
B Y B R A D K O VA C H
The River Dunes Harbor Club is a boating and social club overlooking Grace Harbor in the heart of River Dunes just north of Oriental.
This quiet, NewEngland-y coastal village is known as the Sailing Capital of North Carolina for good reason — there are more than twice as many registered boats as permanent residents here, and at one time its town fathers were “pretty sure” it boasted more circumnavigators per capita than anyplace else in the world. Oriental sits along the Intracoastal Waterway at the convergence of five navigable creeks and the beautiful Neuse River, not far from Pamlico Sound, which stretches 30 nautical miles to the famed Outer Banks and the Atlantic Ocean beyond. As a result, you can cruise, fish, paddle and play to your heart’s content. But this is also a great place to simply kick back and relax. The “downtown” area is home to several marinas and commercial fishing outfits, plus a number of pubs and restaurants, where you can watch the boats come and go. Oriental has also developed
Oriental, North Carolina
into a thriving arts colony with a plentiful palette of galleries and boutiques and a warm, welcoming atmosphere. River Dunes (252-249-4908, riverdunes.com), a community just north of Oriental, offers new homes and a world-
class resort harbor with every convenience for year-round living and boating. Its marina features 400 slips, state-ofthe-art floating docks, a 500-foot fuel dock with high-speed diesel, a pool, a fitness center, dining and more.
Beaufort and Port Royal, South Carolina For what seems like eons, a racy afternoon in the Low Country has consisted of hanging a line off the end of a dock and seeing what happens. Not much has changed, and while golf has joined the roster as a popular pastime, the communities of Beaufort and Port Royal remain as grounded as they were hundreds of years ago.
The City of Beaufort, S.C.
A wonderful mix of historic cottages, victorian homes and ancient oak trees line the streets of Old Point in Beaufort.
Southern hospitality flourishes here — Coastal Living magazine named Beaufort America’s Happiest Seaside Town — as does a culture steeped in myriad customs and proclivities. You can’t walk (or bike) too far without running into an old mansion or monument or a new art gallery or curio store. Surrounding it all are
vibrant marshes nestled beneath the moss-draped limbs of massive live oaks. Life in Beaufort and Port Royal is defined by water with a respectable fishing fleet serving the many homegrown restaurants. Kayaking, sailing, angling and beachcombing are ample, as are festivals dedicated to the Low Country and its wonderful diversity. On the ICW, the Downtown Marina of Beaufort (843-524-4422, downtownmarinabeaufort.com) lies within walking distance of numerous eateries, bed and breakfasts, historic homes and parks. Port Royal Landing Marina (843-525-6664, portroyallandingmarina.com) also on the ICW to the south, can be accessed from the ocean through both Port Royal and St. Helena sound. It features an on-site restaurant, boaters’ lounge, and multiple patios for basking in the cool breezes.
The Lighthouse is reputed to be haunted by the ghost of light keeper Frederick Osborne, who was killed in a duel with assistant keeper John Stephens in 1880.
Golden Isles, Georgia Just off the Atlantic Coast, midway between Savannah, Ga., and Jacksonville, Fla., lie the Golden Isles, so named for their radiant beauty and gleaming stretches of sand. Native Americans, European explorers, pirates and tycoons have all left their footprints here, creating a setting rich in history and luxury. St. Simons Island, the largest of the group, is dotted with modern villages boasting seaside shops and restaurants, as well as attractions such as the Neptune Park and Fun Zone, the St. Simons Lighthouse Museum and the Maritime Center. Little St. Simons is accessible only by boat, a natural oasis for outdoor pursuits. Sea Island is dominated by the renowned Cloister on Sea Island resort and its world-class golf courses, while Jekyll Island is home to the majestic Jekyll Island Club Hotel, once the exclusive retreat of J.P. Morgan, William Rockefeller, Vincent Astor and William K. Vanderbilt. The Golden Isles are truly a multifaceted treasure, and the thriving city of Brunswick, hugging the adjacent shoreline 62 marinalife.com

of Georgia, provides the ideal spot from which to launch your island-hopping adventures. Morningstar Marinas (912-634-1128, morningstarmarinas.com) operates high-quality properties through out the mid-Atlantic and southeastern
U.S., including one on St. Simons Island. Just a mile north of the ICW, it has 137 slips and amenities such as a swimming pool, a picnic deck with grill, a restaurant and a dive shop.
Punta Gorda, Florida People don’t come to Punta Gorda for the beaches, because there aren’t any. They come for the Old Florida ambiance — the brick lanes lined with palm trees, the tin-roof homes, the quaint fishing shacks and the vibrant murals painted on the buildings downtown. Local preservationists have tried hard to keep the nostalgic feel alive, and it’s worked, but that doesn’t mean the city is trapped in slow motion. Rather, it’s a haven for outdoor enthusiasts, with a scenic pedestrian prome-
nade (Harborwalk), the state’s second largest harbor (Charlotte Harbor) and a collection of nearby islands for boating escapades (the Gulf Islands). Happily, Punta Gorda’s newer developments are doing their part not to upset the dock cart. Fishermen’s Village, a tourist attraction that features specialty shops and seven restaurants, is built in the style of a salty seaside port. It also houses furnished luxury villas, and its marina has 111 slips and free daytime docking for visiting vessels.
Burnt Store Village is a 600-acre gated community located minutes from its namesake marina, which has on-site resort and golfing facilities. Burnt Store Marina (941-637-0083, burntstoremarina.com) is located on Charlotte Harbor, named one of Sail magazine’s Top 10 Places to Sail. With all this to offer, it's no wonder Punta Gorda was also named one of the Top 10 Places to Retire Healthy by U.S. News & World Report.

Palmer Philyaw, Franklin County Tourist Development
More than 90 percent of Florida’s oyster production is harvested in the Apalachicola Bay and every year the city hosts the Florida Seafood Festival.
Apalachicola, Florida Once the third largest port on the Gulf of Mexico, Apalachicola resonates with the sights and sounds of a bygone era. The steamboats and schooners may have disappeared, but the town retains a working waterfront, bustling with weatherworn shrimp and oyster boats, now buttressed with an array of fine restaurants, museums and boutiques. Today, the maritime town features an eclectic mix of old and new, with more than 900 turn-of-the-century homes and buildings alongside luxury waterfront accommodations. One thing that hasn’t changed is the area’s bountiful natural resources. The Apalachicola River and Apalachicola Bay provide great fishing opportunities for both freshwater and saltwater species. Lovers of the outdoors can explore the endless bays
and waterways by kayak, canoe, sailboat and powerboat. Scipio Creek Marina (850-653-8030, scipiocreekmarina.com) is Florida’s largest marina facility and is located within walking distance of the historic district’s shops and attractions. Family-owned, it offers a friendly atmosphere and prides itself on providing visitors with whatever they need to enjoy their stay. Water Street Hotel & Marina (850-653-3700, waterstreethotel.com) is a new destination in Apalachicola with 30 suites designed in an Old Florida spirit. Conveniences include a 20-slip marina, a pool, meeting facilities and screened porches on the water. It’s located four blocks from the Apalachicola waterfront. m l For more information, visit marinalife.com/homeports

> DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
B Y M E E G H A N T R U E LO V E
The Dominican Republic sits on the eastern half of the island of Hispaniola, the second-largest Caribbean isle after Cuba, and it is nestled roughly in the center of the region between Cuba and Puerto Rico. Boaters will find an amazingly diverse country with top-notch marina facilities, world-class resorts and plenty to explore on shore once you have docked. Dominican culture is lively and rich. Spend the day at a packed baseball game (Dominicans are crazy for baseball), and then dance the night away to the frenetic and irresistible sounds of merengue and bachata. Coming from the north, boaters can start their Dominican adventure in Puerto Plata and then cruise south to Punta Cana, on the eastern coast, and from there head to La Romana on the south coast.
PUERTO PLATA NORTH COAST
WHAT TO DO Watersports: Windsurfing, kiteboarding and parasailing are popular pursuits here, and the beach town of Cofresi is a great place to try them out. Twenty minutes away is Cabarete, one of the best spots for windsurfing and kiteboarding on the planet. Rio Damajagua: Hike up the trail along the river — and then splash, jump and swim your way back. There is a network of 27 waterfalls that lead one into the next, all naturally formed. Brugal Rum Factory: This is world’s third-largest producer of rum and the largest in the DR. Tour the facilities and sample one of its house-made daiquiris.
Dominican Republic Ministry of Tourism
WHERE TO DOCK Ocean World Marina (oceanworldmarina.com) can handle yachts up to 250 feet and is fully loaded with top-notch amenities.

WHAT TO DO Altos de Chavon: A re-created 16th-century European village, where virtually every element — door frames, cobblestones — was crafted by hand. A gallery specializes in work by Dominican artists, boutiques sell pottery and jewelry, a museum highlights pre- Columbian artifacts and culture, and a 5,000-seat amphitheater — inaugurated by Frank Sinatra in 1982 — has hosted entertainers such as Sting, Shakira, Gloria Estefan and Marc Anthony. The Church of St. Stanislaus contains a hand-carved statue that Pope John Paul II sent from Krakow to commemorate the church’s opening. Horseback riding and polo watching: Take a scenic trail ride (Western or English, your choice) with one of the expert guides from the equestrian center at Casa de Campo. The center also organizes professional polo matches from November through April. And, of course, golf: La Romana rivals Punta Cana for golf greatness. It may not have as many courses, but it does have several designed by Pete Dye, including the oceanfront Teeth of the Dog, consistently ranked the best course in the Caribbean. m l WINTER 2014
HOW TO HANDLE YOUR VESSEL’S REFIT B Y J UA N WAT S O N
any owners out there have either been down this road before or are about to head that way at some stage … the dreaded refit! It is absolutely understandable why there might be some trepidation. The following hypothetical situation will provide you with some perspective and useful tips when refitting your vessel.
SCENARIO Mr. Jones purchased a 50-foot motor yacht. The vessel passed survey well and the owner got the boat for a great price since the vessel required a paint job. He decided a bow thruster might be wise because of the new paint job. So now we begin.
DO YOUR HOMEWORK Determine your projects, whether it be new paint or a bow thruster. I recommend doing some basic reading on each of these so you have some understanding of what is involved. Next is the important task of selecting the yard. Below are some important factors to consider: What type of reputation does the yard have? Are they
expensive, difficult to deal with and/or true professionals? Try to get feedback about a yard from several people if possible. Meet the prospective project manager and understand
the importance of having an honest discussion about your concerns. 70 marinalife.com
Does the project manager have the right personnel and equipment for the project(s)? Do they have painters trained to apply the specific
paint application you have chosen? Have they done any recent bow thruster installments, and can they provide testimonials for you to review?
Tidewater Yacht Service
Is the yard close by so you can make regular visits to monitor progress? I do not suggest being there every day. If you provide the
yard with the occasional feedback they need, they will know if they are doing the job right for you.
DOWN TO BUSINESS Mr. Jones has done the preliminary vetting and has a particular yard in mind, A Boat Works. This is where we nail down the project details and refit agreements. Agreements should generally cover:
NOW WE ARE UNDER WAY
Tidewater Yacht Service
■ Proposed timeline for the overall refit, detailing the responsibilities of the yard. If deadlines are not met, the timeline could involve daily or weekly penalties, covering the layup charges if applicable or nothing at all. One might consider a clause that allows for the date to be adjusted, provided it is agreed and signed by both parties. ■ A detailed scope of the work and cost. It should clearly detail if the install is a fixed price or an estimate. If it is an estimate, the owner might consider putting a “not to exceed” amount clause on estimated amounts. This will allow for the owner to be informed if the project is running into complications and not to leave the yard sitting with the cost. Remember, any custom fabrication cannot be returned so be sure everyone is on the same page.
■ Payment of the refit. This could involve payments made at certain milestones during the refit or deposits upfront and the outstanding balance at the end. If you are working on the first option make sure the milestones are clearly defined; this has the benefit of being able to review the billing in smaller chunks and makes expenditure tacking easier. Option two means less checks, but you are left with a yard bill that is two months in the making. ■ Insurance responsibilities should be clearly defined in the event that there was to be any damage or loss to the vessel for any reason during the refit. Check with your insurance provider to ensure adequate coverage for yard work, as an additional umbrella might be required.
Mr. Jones and the yard have now come to terms and the refit is under way. Tracking progress is important so listed are a few recommendations to help the process: ■ Start a binder to organize all the signed agreements, invoices and estimates, etc. ■ Create a folder in your email account to track and store all refitrelated digital documents. Always follow up with an email if you happen to have a conversation in the yard or over the phone. ■ See if the project manager can provide you with a weekly progress update covering yard hours and purchases. If convenient, meet weekly to go over the progress. ■ Once projects are under way, take as many photos as you can. They can come in handy, and it is good to print copies and add them to your refit binder.
IN CLOSING Refits can be stressful. At the same time, when it goes well it can be particularly rewarding. In 2011, I was in charge of a refit project of a 101-Foot motor yacht. The project went on for months and involved painting the entire vessel and doing six other large structural and mechanical projects. The following points are what most resonated with me on that refit, which was a particularly successful one: ■ Vague agreements do not serve any party at the end of the day. Spend the time on the front end, and find terms that work for all involved. ■ If the work is done right and on time, make sure the yard is paid on time. This is a great way to build a great long-term relationship with the yard, and in my experience they will go the extra mile for you. ■ It is not always easy, but it is vital that both parties understand what the project entails. The yard must be clear in its abilities, scope and costing. The owner/captain must do his best to express what he/she is looking for. Change orders can be expensive so try and avoid those. ■ The ultimate goal is to get that new paint job or bow thruster installed right. It takes a true collaborative process to achieve that goal. ml Juan Watson is a 14-year mega yacht veteran. Currently, he owns and operates Pelorus Yacht Consulting, LLC in Annapolis, MD.

Stretching from Key Largo to Key West the Florida Keys span nearly 120 miles along U.S. Highway 1. Also known as the Overseas Highway and one of the most scenic waterfront roadways in the United States, it winds its way through the keys, where often the only land mass separating the cobalt blue water of the Atlantic Ocean from the sand and grassy flats of Florida Bay is this famed narrow highway. For the traveling angler the Florida Keys offer world-class fishing, and winter is a great time to visit the keys. Though weather plays a critical role in what’s biting where and when, when one door closes on a particular species because of weather, another often opens wide. On the offshore scene cold fronts, and the northerly breeze accompany them, will send beach fanatics shopping, though anglers looking to tangle with sailfish welcome these cold fronts with open arms. While your clothes will more likely be fitting for a fall football game than a day on the water in Florida, the excitement of battling a tail-walking sailfish will warm you quickly. Typically, from the edge of the reef and beyond, schools of showering bait signal sailfish below, and pitching or slow-trolling live bait is the preferred technique. Don’t overlook the inshore water though, as we’ve caught sailfish in water depths as shallow as 25 feet. In between sailfish bites look for dolphin (mahi mahi), wahoo, kingfish, blackfin tuna, bonito and Spanish mackerel to provide action. Thanks to an elimination of commercial long-lining along their breeding grounds, swordfish have made a strong comeback, and the keys offer an excellent shot year-round at catching one. However, you’ll need to bring your A game and a strong back, as these denizens are found in depths approaching 1,000 feet or more. The best advice here is to leave this to 72 marinalife.com

the pros, and charter an experienced captain to put you on the catch of a lifetime, as tackle, bait rigging and locating these gladiators of the deep takes expertise. Bonefish, tarpon and permit are the Big Three among flats fisherman, and while each can be found year-round in the keys, unless the winter is mild, you’ll be hard pressed to locate them, as cool temperatures send them searching for warm water. A better choice is to head into Florida Bay for a chance to tangle with redfish. When conditions are right, snook are also possible, though they are indeed harder to find in the winter. Barracuda and sharks can save a slow day; as these hard-fighting species are abundant and can provide a thrill when kids are aboard as they check out the teeth and unique colors of each. A variety of birdlife and the chance sighting of an alligator makes a trip to the backcountry special. Near-shore wrecks offer a shot at amberjack, and one of the best spots to tangle with these muscle-aching brutes is The Hump off Islamorada, where AJs in excess of 75 pounds are not uncommon. Along the lumps and wrecks you’ll also find cobia, king mackerel and blackfin tuna while early winter trips yield catches of assorted species of grouper and snapper. Inshore
reefs offer an excellent shot at tasty yellowtail and mangrove snappers and provide excellent sport on light spinning tackle while chumming, as schools of hundreds of fish can often be seen right behind the boat, where these fish can literally be hand fed. Don’t let the cold of winter put a damper on your fishing plans. Like warmth from a cozy fireplace, the Florida Keys offer a red-hot opportunity to enjoy exceptional fishing, beautiful scenery, excellent restaurants and top-notch marinas which are sure to make your stay a memorable one. ml To view this article online, visit marinalife.com/fishingcharters

THE CURE to what ails you “It’ll cure what ails you,” Moe, my cab driver, told me as I returned from the market to the boat on Paradise Island in the Bahamas. “You got a backache: Eat a bowl of conch salad. You got da depression: Eat a bowl of conch salad. ” His hearty laugh filled the air. “And best part, here on da island, you can go
B Y V I C TO R I A A L L M A N
al’ night with da rum, you eat conch in da mornin’ and you good as new.” It was these last words I remembered the next day when I found my friend Ian in his cabin, passed out yet still fully clothed with an overwhelming smell of rum emanating off him. He’d been at the casino at the Atlantis
resort the night before. “Ian, wake up!” I shook him. He sat up but could barely focus. His red, swollen eyes and the disheveled brown hair that stood up on one side suggested the need for the mighty Queen conch’s magical cure for hangovers.
Conch Salad Serves 6-8 Ingredients 8 cleaned conchs 2 stalks celery ½ white onion 1 green pepper 1 tomato
½ to 1 scotch bonnet, depending on your heat tolerance 1 orange 3 limes 1 teaspoon sea salt
What to Do? Rinse and dice the conch as small as possible (quarter-inch) to avoid a chewy texture. Dice the celery, onion, green pepper and tomato to the same small half-inch dice. Mince the scotch bonnet as small as possible. Add a little at a time to the conch and vegetables to establish your heat limit. Squeeze the citrus over the mix and season with sea salt. Mix well. Taste and adjust the heat by adding more scotch bonnets. If you add more citrus you will create a more piquant salad. Serve as a salad.
I called Moe for help. We stepped off the boat into the bright sunlight of day. The heat slapped Ian, and he recoiled as if he’d been burned. The walk down the dock may have been the longest of my life. Moe took us over the bridge to Potter’s Cay, where multicolored wooden stands lined the road, and directed us to a whitewashed shack in the middle of the row with three bar stools outside. A hand-painted sign above the counter read, Frankie’s. “He’s da best.” Moe whispered in my ear as if he were trading government secrets before wandering down the row of conch stands to a dominoes game being played under the shade of a banyan tree. Frankie, a jovial Bahamian, as full of life as the local music, knew why we were there. He had Ian pegged the minute we sat down. “Whew! Man, you need a Kalik. That’ll feel you better.” He reached into the cooler. “You were takin’ in the rum last night? Maybe talkin’ to some ladies? Havin’ good time.” He gyrated his hips and laughed. Ian groaned. “Yeah, and now I’m here for the cure.” “You stand the heat?” Frankie raised his eyebrows. “The hotter the better,” Ian boasted. “Good, good, you jus’ sit back and let Frankie take care of you.” He pulled two conchs out of the ocean behind him, punctured the shell on the spiral, inserted his machete and cut the muscle. With expert precision, he grabbed the meat from the open end of the shell and with his long nimble fingers gently pulled. He sang a
Bahamian tune while dicing the meat and piling it into a heaping mound on the corner of his board. His knife flew through the onions, celery and tomatoes while he sang, laughed and told us another medicinal property of conch salad. “Around here we use it as Viagra.” He winked at Ian. “One bowl of this and you be good to go all night. “I can’t even think of that now,” Ian moaned while dropping his head to the white tile counter. Frankie laughed as he squeezed three limes and an orange over the salad and plucked a scotch bonnet off a pile in the corner. “Jus’ half a chile for the lady, but for you man, you gotta have two.” There was no room for arguing in his voice. “We gonna sweat that stuff outta you.” He seasoned the mix with coarse sea salt and added another squeeze of lime. He opened another Kalik for Ian and handed us two heaping Styrofoam bowls. “This give you a stiff back, my man. You be good just now.” His eyes danced while his hips swung to the tune he hummed. “And tonight, you be real good.” We thanked Frankie and moved to a plastic round table. A single Kalik beer umbrella sheltered us from the piercing sun. Its intensity sent daggers through an already fragile Ian and exacerbated the smell of alcohol coming from his pores.

Today â€™s low and ultra-low sulfur diesel
fuels offer poor lubricity, contain more moisture, destabilize rapidly and are more susceptible to bacteria growth. Because sulfur in diesel helped to lubricate the fuel system, lower sulfur diesel can cause premature injector and fuel pump wear and failure.
ValvTect Marine Diesel contains BioGuard TM biocide, VT 101 Lubricity improver, water dispersant, corrosion inhibitor, cetane improver and stabilizer. It also contains Diesel Guard detergent that cleans-up injector deposits (gunk) and has been found to help improve fuel economy as much as 6% or more. VALVTECT MARINE DIESEL with BIOGUARD TM
