Jarrett Bay 54 refit featuring Aqualuma Generation 4 18 Series LEDs
Starflite, a 1999 Jarrett Bay Boatworks custom 54 sportfisherman, winner of a Refit Excellence Award at the recent Refit International Exhibition & Conference in Fort Lauderdale, is illuminated by five blue Aqualuma® Gen 4 18 Series Thru-Hull LED underwater lights.
Starflite underwent a two-year refit between April 2013 and May 2015 at the Jarrett Bay yard in Beaufort, North Carolina.
Since 2004, Aqualuma has perfected the art form of underwater lighting and the company’s LEDs are the lights of choice for many of the world’s leading boat manufacturers.
The Gen 4 18 Series Thru-Hull LED illuminates some of the world’s largest superyachts, with a huge light output, at an affordable price in Aqualuma’s patented one piece polymer housing, that can be serviced from inside the vessel. Aqualuma 6 and 12 Series owners have the ability to upgrade to the 18 Series from inside the boat – with no haul out.
The 18 Tri Series combines the brilliance of the blue and white and offers customers the choice of two colors (nine blue and nine white LEDs) in a one piece, robust, corrosion-proof and injection-molded polymer housing. Choose to operate just one of Aqualuma’s colours, or run them together to get a mix of the two, at an intensity that is equal to a single 18 Series ultra light.

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.
