Jim Patrick and Kari Zuk From Pro MarineIf you own the sailboat or a power boat in British Columbia’s West Coast, then most likely you fish for prawns and crab. The two new products that British Columbia boater, Jim and Kari are presenting at their booth at this year’s Vancouver International boat show are drawing huge interest.

The Flex Fold Combo Trap effectively catches either crabs or prawns with the same great features as the individual Flex Fold Traps.

Flex Fold Combo 360xThe ALL IN ONE Combo Trap has the versatility to quickly and easily be converted to catch either crabs or prawns. The only effective Combo Trap on the market, it looks and folds the same as the Flex Fold Prawn and Crab Traps but is two-in-one, saving room and money.

~ Stainless Steel (304) construction with round large volume design

~ Three large entrances for super fast fishing with heavy gates

~ Deep set/fast current capable and heavy durable polyester netting

PRO LINE Hauler 360xIntroducing PRO MARINE'S new THIN LINE prawning and crabbing revolution. Transforming the way boaters fish for prawns and crab, the Pro Line Hauler requires no 12v on board power source like other haulers and is fast, sturdy, and compact. The secret lies in using 400lb test small diameter line which means less space and virtually no drag in the water.

FEATURES:
~ Uses cordless 20 volt drill as power source *
~ Made of heavy-duty powder coated aluminum
~ Pre-spooled with 400ft small diameter line
~ Can be used as a windlass or stern tying device
~ Fits into standard deck and rail mounts
~ For use on all boat types and sizes
~ One year warranty on factory defects

Beneteau Oceanis Yacht 54By Zuzana Prochazka

Beneteau saw an opportunity to add a little thrill to any cruising adventure, so they took the hull of the First 53 racer (introduced just last year), and with a few fashionable changes, created the Oceanis Yacht 54, the new entry-level of Beneteau’s swanky Oceanis Yacht line. The result is a performance cruiser that sails like a witch and looks like a grande dame.

Design

Roberto Biscontini is the naval architect and Lorenzo Argento created the details of the exterior and interior design.

At the moment, the Riverest Marina offers boaters a stop where they can launch their boat...

Galvanic CorrosionIt’s a scary thought – but whether your boat is made of wood, fiberglass, aluminum or composite – it’s slowly deteriorating under you. Part of this is the nature of the marine environment: Sun, moisture, waves, wind, movement and vibration all contribute to components breaking down.

But there are other factors that are much more concerning and act at a significantly faster rate that the environment can take credit for. One of these is commonly spoken of, but not terribly well understood: Corrosion. As boaters, we’re concerned with two main types of corrosion: Galvanic and Stray-Current. This edition will focus on galvanic corrosion – in two weeks, stay tuned for info on stray-current.

Mia and Caleb's EngagementOn July 23 last year, CYOB published a piece on a beautifully restored 1967 Trojan 42 Motor Yacht in Oromocto NB. (That piece was also expanded in CY magazine later in the year.)

One of our Canadian Yachting contributors, Denise Miller, had shared the article on my social media and a young man reached out and asked if she could connect him with the owners of the boat, Dave and Barb. Denise leapt into action and Dave and Barb were thrilled. They concocted a plan that the young lady, Mia, thought she was coming to model for a sales brochure for Dave to do charter tours.
