Seafood StewThis super-easy recipe is ideal for preparation in a galley because, as this post title suggests, it involves throwing everything into just one pot. LOVE that! And if you have a Le Creuset casserole pot or skillet then it is even more perfect for you:

Ingredients & Method:
Tbsp. olive oil    
200g fennel, sliced
200g leeks, finely sliced    
2 garlic cloves, crushed
400g chopped peeled tomatoes    
400g chopped peeled cherry tomatoes
1 tsp saffron threads    
250ml water or seafood stock
600g firm white fish, kingklip, cut into large pieces    
Salt and pepper to season
300g whole prawns, cleaned    
350g fresh uncooked mussels, rinsed well
200ml white wine      

+ In the oval casserole dish, sauté the fennel in 1 Tbsp. olive oil until lightly golden and set aside.
+ In the same pan, add the leeks and sauté until softened, add the garlic and cook for a further 2 minutes.
+ Add the tins of tomatoes, saffron and liquid and simmer for 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 200°c.
+ Pat the fish dry and season on both sides.
+ Place a separate pan on a high heat and cook the fish in 1 tbsp. olive oil for 5 minutes, turning once. Set aside. Then cook the prawns in the same pan until they turn pink, do not overcook them as they will become tough. Set the prawns aside, do not wipe the pan clean. Place that pan on a high heat and when it is very hot quickly add the mussels and wine and cover with a lid. Steam the mussels for 10mins or until their shells have all opened and are they are cooked through.
+ Discard any mussels that have not opened.
+ Drain the mussels, keeping the liquid and add this to the tomato sauce. This mussel broth will add great flavour to the dish. Season to taste. Add the fish, prawns and mussels to the tomato stew, mix well then cover with a lid and cook in a preheated oven for 15 minutes to allow all the flavours to combine and develop further.
+ Scatter with parsley and lemon wedges. Perfect with basmati rice or crusty bread.

Viko S35

By Katherine Stone

I am lucky to have the opportunity to helm many types of boats. I am even more lucky to sail boats on champagne fall days when many boats are either being hauled for the winter, or are already under shrink-wrap.

Not only are there great winds – usually offshore, but welcome sunshine and open waters with few boats out enjoying the last days of September. Joining me for the test sail of the Viko S35 was the former publisher of Canadian Yachting, Greg Nicoll, and the Canadian Viko Yachts representative, Eric Beauregard, who had driven down from Montreal.

Four Winns H4

 

Four Winns H4By Andy Adams

The well-known Four Winns brand is now a part of the international boatbuilder Groupe Beneteau and the new H4 is a great example of how the design and engineering resources of Beneteau can up the game even for a brand like Four Winns that has a long and distinguished history.

The Cadillac Michigan-built H4 is a brand-new design this year and we think it's especially handsome. The vertical stem bow is all new and innovative. It is a design feature that was chosen to give Four Winns and the H4 a sense of modern and contemporary look while the stern remains more traditional.

West Side Story

by Jennifer M. Smith, drone photos by Alex Nikolajevich

It was the last day of August and we were in Little Current heading south. Our Lasalle winter haul out was still over a month away. The question was: where to now? Friends in Meaford often suggested we sail in for a visit. We never had because we’d always moved north-south on the east side of Georgian Bay. This year we were up for something different. This was the perfect opportunity to cruise the west side of the bay.

We made the 10 a.m. bridge out of Little Current and motor-sailed east southeast in light northerlies. We’d often sailed past Snug Harbour, a nearly land-locked anchorage on the north side of Lansdowne Channel because the chart suggested we’d never make it in there with our six-foot draft.

Supplies and Colour Matching

by Marc Robic

After 27 years of sun and traffic, the cockpit floor on Aquaholic was starting to look faded and had many small pinholes and minor surface cracks. These pinholes are mostly caused by small air pockets that lay just below the gelcoat surface. Of course, this is exacerbated by particles such as small rocks or debris under shoes, dropped winch handles, etc.

Luckily, Catalina Yachts is still very much in business and are very helpful when owners have questions or need parts. I ordered a small quantity of original formula Catalina grey and white gelcoat for my model and year.
