Requiem for a Mariner

In some way, shape, or form, the beginning of the end will happen to all of us, and for Bob Tiede-mann it happened on January 1, 2006, in a strange, surprising manner. Other than the novelty of the holiday, it was a routine winter's afternoon for Bob and his wife, Elizabeth, a statuesque brunette who'd, been at his'sidfe for all sorts of adventures on water and on land for some 15 years. The Tiede-manns' daily exercise habit this day favored an hour-long walk, and midway through the stroll Bob...

A moment's inattention with the blasting hose can do unspeakable things. Perhaps too anxious to set to sea again, I decided to divide the interior into sections and tackle them in increments that have stretched out internationally from Maine to Panama to New Zealand. Knowing that steel boats rot from the inside out, instead of...

Captain Bob Tiedemann helms his beloved Gleam in racing action off Newport, Rhode Island, where he made a lasting mark at sea and ashore. glory, Seascope had evolved into an terprise that, from a nautical perspective, served as a full-service portal to a more elegant time.

Tyle

Lection of long, lean sloops has become its own cottage industry. They add grace to a waterfront that was victimized by one lame, poorly executed urban-development project after another throughout the 1970s and, especially, the 1980s. No, it wasn't necessarily a gorgeous harbor before then, but it was an honest, working one. One can make the argument that the fleet of 12-Meters, constantly under sail, has helped return to the city an air of legitimacy, of heritage. It certainly has played no...

After a year in the ice, Roger Henry tests the mettle of her owner during a well-deserved refit As my wife, Diana, and I tacked toward the starting line of an informal race, the skipper of a svelte vessel shot me a condescending look that said, What's a boat like that doing Steel I replied. He tacked away in a fluster. It's true We steel-boat owners have a reputation for being rumpled and reckless. But I don't think the inherent strength of my hull makes me any less cautious when closing with...

Hey, it wasn't my idea to hustle rum into the Caribbean. It was the captain's. And since the captain was the only man in our crew, packing strong medicine ranked right up there with swim trunks and toothbrush. There's all the rum in the world in the islands, I'd moaned while he madly obeyed the bareboaters' packing rule. It was just past 5 a.m., our ride to Boston's Logan Airport was about to arrive, and the captain unpacked, then repacked his clothes into a smaller, carry-on, soft-sided bag...

Classic Plastic By Evelene Gallardo

A victim of its own high quality, the Nor'West 33 is a scarce gem of a cruising boat Ten years ago, when my husband, Charlie, and I decided to replace our 40-year-old, 25-foot wooden boat with a larger, more modern design suited for offshore cruising, we were both struck by the pretty lines of an elegant and little-known racer cruiser, the Nor'West 33. A satisfying sea trial sail proved the boat was just what we were looking for, and we purchased Skye, hull number six. Between 1978 and 1981, 18...

Electronics By Captain Chris Kelly

Navionics Chart Symbols

Four companies offer electronic charts, and no two are quite the same The first time I wrote about electronic charts was circa 1996, when they were in the early stages of development. Back then, the data cartridges were bulky things about the size of a box of paper clips. Today, the chips are wafer thin but hold a gazillion times more data. In those days, most electronic charts, called vector charts, were re-creations of actual paper charts, and they were made in data layers so you could...
