LightshipNow is the right time to switch to solar-powered, internal lighting. The LightShip from Davis Instruments enables users to deliver portable, solar-powered LED lighting to boats, RVs, cabins or homes at a low cost. It also serves as a safety light in case of fire or other emergency when the electricity goes out, automatically illuminating a room during a power outage.

LightShip can be attached to any clear-glass window. In a home, it's great near any door, stairs, electric panel or in any bathroom or hallway. On a boat, LightShip can be attached to the inside of any hatch, window or porthole with good sun access for all-night lighting. It's also perfect to keep campers, trailers or cabins well lit with no energy draw.

The LightShip installs easily with three powerful suction cups that face the solar cell to the sun for charging the NiMH battery. Three bright-white LEDs provide enough light for reading or users can switch to one, single red LED for better night vision capabilities.

A built-in light sensor switches the LightShip off automatically during daylight hours. It can also be switched off to store up energy for future use. Owners can attach one to a well-lit area during the day, then move it to wherever it's needed at night.

Constructed from tough polycarbonate, the LightShip features a clear, molded lens and reflector to maximize LED intensity. For interior use only, it measures 2" H x 5" W and weighs only 8 oz.

Story by Sheryl Shard • Photos by Paul and Sheryl Shard

The first time we sailed to Madeira we wondered if the island had vanished. Or at least that's how it appeared. Actually, it didn't appear. Not when we thought it should have.

That was in 1991 before the days of affordable GPS. On that first voyage, we were relying on a sextant, SatNav and dead reckoning. By our calculations, we were five miles off a massive mountainous landform in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

Armdale Yacht ClubBy Katherine Stone

You can’t possibly pack in more national history associated with a yacht club than what you can find on Deadman’s Island in Nova Scotia. This is what Halloween legends were made of, as it was not uncommon once upon a time, to have an arm appear out of the ground in winter with the remainder of the poor skeleton not being reunited with its appendage until the spring thaw.

Many years after the Micmacs discovered Melville Island, the spot they called “end of the water,” the site was used for storehouses and then was purchased by the British, where a prisoner-of-war camp was built to house captives in the Napoleonic Wars and then later during the War of 1812.

Vanquish 24 RunaboutBy Andy Adams

Big, elegant, and capable

Families with young people who are seriously into waterskiing or wake boarding face a difficult choice: Buy a dedicated tow sports boat and make the kids happy or buy a more traditional family boat and make everyone comfortable.

In our opinion, the Vanquish 24 Runabout offers up a big, elegant, and capable solution that could make everybody happy. This is not a cheap solution, but it's an impressive one. Last August, we traveled to Gravenhurst, Ontario, and got our first look at the Vanquish 24 Runabout, tied up at Muskoka Wharf Marine. One glance told us this was a special boat.
