POTWWelcome to Photo of the Week 2018. If you are not familiar with this wonderful feature (What???!!!) it’s an opportunity for you to share your fine camera work with the boating nation.

The rules are simple. It has to be your shot taken in and around boats or from a boat. Or anything else boat-y. Or anything you feel is appropriate - docks, ports, winches, engine parts, people – yes, people And pets on boats, of course. And kids.

Send your photos to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with POTW in the subject and we’ll get them into the publication in 2018! Thanks in advance.

 


To kick off the new crop, here’s a New Years gem:

“Setting sail in early morning from Salt Spring Marina” I took this photo today, December 30 just prior to our departure back to Sidney, Vancouver Island from Salt Spring Marina on Salt Spring Island. The previous day was full of beating rain and so the skipper delayed our departure until today.

Sincerely yours,
Kathy Younker

Scarab 255 OpenBy Andy Adams and John Armstrong

But for me, the Scarab 255 Open was an immediate stand out. This is a boat that breaks new ground and brings fresh thinking and interpretation of the boating experience to a wide range of buyers.

We had a quick look around but the test drives would have to wait until the next day.
