Pier Sixty-Six Hotel and MarinaOur Photo of the Week comes from sunny Florida. In Fort Lauderdale, Florida's Pier Sixty-Six Hotel and Marina is synonymous with the yachting lifestyle and annually hosts the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. As visiting superyachts became ever larger over the years, the existing fixed dock was no longer making the grade so the owners are making it (even) bigger by installing SF Marina floating concrete superyacht dock 20-foot wide floating pontoon sections to handle dreamboats up to 350’ plus two-way golf cart traffic on the dock. Perfect for your next visit, no?

This is a grand way to kick off POTW for 2021, but as we come back to earth we will need your photos. Send your pictures of anything boating related to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and put Photo of the Week in the subject line. Perhaps your boat, kids and pets will be our POTW next issue!

2022 Sea-Doo SwitchSea-Doo’s all-new Switch marries the performance of a personal watercraft with the versatility of a pontoon boat to create what might just be the perfect entry-level watercraft for young families.

If there’s one thing that’s been a constant throughout BRP’s colourful history, it’s a penchant for stepping outside the box and coming up with what turn out to be ground-breaking innovations.

Volvo Penta 130 and 150 SaildrivesOnce our boat comes out of the water, I take the annual fall tour of the hull so I can determine what to worry about all winter. The first thing I note is that the sacrificial anode I had intended to replace prior to launch last spring remains un-replaced.


I recall, as I look blankly at it, that my plan was to attach a brand new anode that I got from the previous owner many years ago, but when I removed it from its packaging, it was clear it wasn’t the correct match for my drive. Perhaps that’s why he hadn’t installed it. And why I went no further.
