Annapolis Brokerage CoveA fall mini-vacay coinciding with Canadian Thanksgiving might be in the cards for many boat-minded lockdown escapees. The Annapolis shows are going ahead at full speed, but will we be able to get there by car? Let us hope the situation warrants cross-border travel by then.

United States Powerboat Show
October 7-10, 2021
City Dock, Annapolis, MD

In October, boaters from across the US gather in the historic seaport of Annapolis to shop from all major powerboat manufacturers. Spend the day exploring a variety of new and used boat types including bowriders, centre consoles, cruisers, cuddy cabins, deck boats, power cats, and more. A great place to purchase boating supplies, navigation equipment, fishing gear, clothing, and marine accessories.

Come for the show and leave with an enhanced lifestyle as you make side-by-side comparisons, talk to industry representatives, and see the latest in boating products and services. It is a long weekend full of boats, exhibits, shopping, drink tastings, and education.

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.

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.
