Big Boats at Boot

Bow BulbRe: Photo of the Week – September 28

Thank you for bringing attention to bow bulbs. Actually we designed the bulb for that vessel, the Drettmann explorer yacht.

We do more bulb work on small craft than anyone in North America. With over 60 bulbs retrofitted and over a dozen new model tested and built craft, we have some of the most advanced technology. Some extreme success cases have shown a 3-knot increase after the bulb.

Best regards,

Brian this is incredible!
Thanks for the kind words. I meant exactly what I said, you and the rest of the crew have been a huge part of making me who I am today. Hope I can continue to make you proud. – Mike
Thanks again

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.

Telegraph Cove—from Resource Community to Tourist Delight

Text and photos by Marianne Scott

Telegraph Cove is a small indent situated on Johnstone Strait in the Salish Sea, 15nm southeast of Port McNeill and near Robson Bight, famous for its orca-rubbing beaches. The village has experienced many iterations with a long history—the harbour once served as a summer camp for the Kwakwaka’wakw who fished and hunted here beginning about 8,000 years ago. Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
