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,

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

CYOB Destinations: We Visit the Hilton Beach Marina

Hilton BeachBy Amelia Morris

Ah Canadian simplicity at its finest; small town, big marina. Little Hilton Beach (population 200!), which I am lucky enough to call my cottage country, is located on the north-east coast of St. Joseph Island. The Hilton Beach Marina is one of the largest and most major ports of call in the Western North Channel. It also has a long and rich history dating back to the 1850’s.

I spoke with Marina Manager, Laura McRae and got the full scoop on what goes on in this inconspicuous but busy marina.

Scarab 255 Open

Scarab 255 OpenBy Andy Adams and John Armstrong

You can imagine,at the GroupeBeneteau dealer meeting in Michigan last fall where all the Four Winns, Scarab, Wellcraft, and Glastrondealers had come to see the latest new models, the docks were lined up with gleaming brand-new boats to show the dealers and media – and they certainly put on a show! 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.
