POTW: January 14, 2021

Pier Sixty-Six Hotel and Marina

Jan 14, 2021

Our Photo of the Week comes from sunny Florida. In Fort Lauderdale, Florida’s Pier Sixty-Six Hotel and Marina is synonymous with the yachting lifestyle and annually hosts the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. As visiting superyachts became ever larger over the years, the existing fixed dock was no longer making the grade so the owners are making it (even) bigger by installing SF Marina floating concrete superyacht dock 20-foot wide floating pontoon sections to handle dreamboats up to 350’ plus two-way golf cart traffic on the dock. Perfect for your next visit, no?

This is a grand way to kick off POTW for 2021, but as we come back to earth we will need your photos. Send your pictures of anything boating related to cyonboard@kerrwil.com and put Photo of the Week in the subject line. Perhaps your boat, kids and pets will be our POTW next issue!

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
