The new Eastbay 39SX is a result of the most ambitious new product development program Grand Banks has ever undertaken. The company, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, recently introduced new models in all its boat lines Heritage East, Eastbay and Aleutian. Each of these new offerings incorporates a host of updates, new thinking and design refinement, and each either replaces a previous model or fills a gap in a given model line. The 39 is in some ways a replacement for the...

Most fiberglass hulls are laminated in female molds that are first sprayed with a polyester gelcoat about 20 mils thick. Gelcoat gives the hull a smooth, glossy finish and somewhat protects the underlying layers of fiberglass from water intrusion. While formulations have improved over the 50 years they've been around, they do eventually succumb to the attack of the sun's ultraviolet rays and general weathering of airborne pollutants. Fine particles of opaque pigment are added to gelcoat to give...

Soaking Up The Final Moments Of The Peace And Beauty Would Take Something Of This With Them

Had missed a visit to the Buzet winery, producer of a light, fruity wine of the region. And we all had missed a gourmet meal at Le Vigneron, a restaurant with a reputation for magret de canard, a local duck specialty and perfect companion for the Buzet wine. This time it was open, we were happy to see, and we had our duck and a carafe or two of the local Buzet wine. From soup to dessert, served from a pastry cart that was a monument to gourmandism, it was a proper celebration for our last...

Canal Boats Plans

MIRAGE MANUFACTURING GAINESVILLE, FLORIDA TEL. 352-377-4146 Many of the classic Bunker and Ellis boats can still be found working and playing in Maine waters. Ellis Boats has a useful and updated Web site and some nice brochures, but selling the boats really happens at every yacht-club christening. The owners sell these boats when they invite their friends to the yacht clubs, he explained, and then whenever they put the anchor down in a harbor and someone comes by to ask what kind of boat it...

Think about the ways you used paper charts back when paper charts were all we had to use. It's not a bad standard to hold as a measuring stick as you set about choosing the electronic-charting solution that's best for you and your boat. Today's charting choices range from virtually free to several thousand dollars depending on the degree of extra features you desire. Although the price of the unadorned government data called S-57 charts in the parlance of the International Hydrographic...

Gene researchers have yet to find the location on the double helix that controls boat design, but Don Ellis is sure it is there. That sheer line runs in the family, he said as we toured his home waters around Mount Desert Island, looking for boats either he or his father had built. It was in my father's designs, it is in my designs, and if my sons were to design a boat I'm sure it would have that sheer. Ellis builds a line of Down East lobster boats that are popular with working lobstermen but...

I'm a sucker for workboat designs, and the spare, utilitarian appearance, sea-kindly hulls and open cockpits of Down East Maine lobster boats are at the top of my list. The traits that make these boats such able commercial fishing vessels translate well into the recreational side of boating, as more than a few builders in Maine, and buyers worldwide, have discovered. One of the most experienced builders of such craft is Wilbur Yachts, which has been building commercial and private lobster boats...

There is an imaginary line for many boaters, a line that divides placid waters from uncertain waters, a boundary between protection and exposure. Wherever a river cleaves a headland or an inlet divides a sandbar, an change in ocean phase occurs, the tumult of which both harkens and chides sailors. Comfortably crossing a bar (West Coast) or running an inlet (East Coast) is a yachtsman's right of passage, a seamanship skills ascendancy that grants access to distant cruising grounds. At the U.S....

On my latest visit to the British Virgin Islands, I didn't grind a winch, unfurl a sail or call out hard a-lee. Instead, I tailed the fleets of charter powerboaters who took a week off from the winter of 2006 for a languid spell in the islands. Fluctuating fuel prices notwithstanding, their good times, I discovered, are a compelling variation on the time-honored theme of bareboat sailing in one of the most charter-friendly destinations in the world. Here are a couple of snapshot views from...

Have you ever stopped to consider that although your boat is propelled by a diesel engine it actually runs on batteries Unless your propulsion or generator-set engine is small enough to be hand-started or is started with compressed air, a hydraulic motor accumulator or a spring-wound starter, it's just a lump of expensive metal until you provide it with a starting battery. Beyond the engine-starting battery or batteries, there are tens of other batteries of various types on board powering...
