Bow BulbRe: Photo of the Week – September 28

Thank you for bringing attention to bow bulbs. Actually we designed the bulb for that vessel, the Drettmann explorer yacht.

We do more bulb work on small craft than anyone in North America. With over 60 bulbs retrofitted and over a dozen new model tested and built craft, we have some of the most advanced technology. Some extreme success cases have shown a 3-knot increase after the bulb.

Best regards,

Re: Sarnia Yacht Club Mentorship Program

Morning John,

Brian this is incredible!
Thanks for the kind words. I meant exactly what I said, you and the rest of the crew have been a huge part of making me who I am today. Hope I can continue to make you proud. - Mike
Thanks again

The Middens of Galiano Island

By Catherine Dook

We motored our way into Montague Harbour along a twisted channel with our engine muffled by the leaning trees.

“This is peaceful,” I told my husband, John.

“Look,” I pointed to an eagle sitting on the top of a tree overlooking the channel entrance like a sentinel giving permission for us to pass. Dignified, unruffled, his impassioned gaze noted and then dismissed us, as uninteresting and perhaps unworthy. I was tired. We’d pulled up anchor at Portland Island that morning, and the grind of the diesel engine had worn me down.

These designs have a strong family resemblance withhandsome and distinctive linesand with a design philosophy that you could say, pioneered the new version of the express cruiser.
