    The resulting boat, Passagemaker, was home to the Beebes for many years and more t ocean-crossing miles. What Beebe learned in those years of voyaging became, in , Voyaging Under Power still the most important and influential book ever published on long-distance powerboating.   Proximity to power lines may lower a property’s value by as much as 30 percent, although that’s the higher end and usually refers to isolated incidents.

      Book Review: Crossing Oceans by Gina Holmes Reviewed by Serena Chase Crossing Oceans by Gina Holmes is one of those rare novels – a book that gouges itself into your heart so completely – and in so many different ways – that you ache with the desire to put it down, but can’t seem to rip yourself away.

      Combining modern outboard power with classic Downeast styling, the Back Cove 34O touts award-winning standards with cruising in mind. The 34O is equipped with twin hp Yamaha outboards, engines that allow the Newport International Boat Show’s Best Powerboat Under 35 Feet winner to travel up to nautical miles at 24 knots on a gallon fuel tank.   Two brothers, Ralph and Robert Brown have crossed the Atlantic Ocean in a Suzuki powered 21' Flats Boat. This voyage started on J with the goal to set a new "Guinness Book World Records" for a Trans-Atlantic crossing and to raise money for "Wounded Heroes" from the USA, UK and Canada.

Choosing a Passagemaker By Dolph McCranie, [email protected] the Right Whale, Krogen 48 Whaleback, hull #8. I wanted a true passagemaker.

Robert Beebe in his book "Voyaging Under Power" says that a true passagemaker is a motor boat that can make an open ocean passage sufficient to at least cross the smallest ocean, the Atlantic. Whatever power you think you’ll use on an ocean crossing, add on another third.

Nav lights, radar, radio scheds, autopilot, watermaker, fridge, freezer, computer, fans – you name it, they all. The rather extreme popularity of our article on Five Affordable Trawlers Under 40 Feet goes a long way in proving how dedicated folks who buy trawlers are.

They seem to have an acute case of nautical wanderlust—a strong desire to explore distant ports under power, where the enjoyment of the journey is almost as important as the destination. The trawler builder is creating its first planing-hull yacht under Summit MotorYachts brand.

Long before Columbus sailed the ocean blue, Polynesians were bobbing around the Pacific on massive outrigger canoes. These canoes got the Polynesians from deep in.

Although sailors have been crossing oceans for hundreds of years, the era of couples cruising the world in small powerboats is just beginning.

As the book begins, Mr. Williams frankly admits to serious doubts about his boating skills. Written by a self-described author of “weird fiction,” The Scar is a dark, depressing, wildly inventive anti-epic with a floating pirate city and multiple underwater civilizations.

The beginning is a little bumpy: as one reviewer notes, “All through the first 40 pages or so you can hear the grunts of a writer straining too hard for effect,” but “[o]nce the novel settles down after.

The best power generation system is a system that makes use of all of the technologies available. Your energy requirements during an ocean crossing can be extremely high. Not only this but yachts, in general, tend to need more power than other vessels.

In this first of a new series of Tech Talks, we talk fuel management, and review everything about how we fuel, store, track, and take care of our 2, gallons or 8, liters of fuel aboard Sea. At a Glance: A modern classic — according to the company no other production boat, power or sail, has as many successful ocean crossings as the Nordhavn The original layout (Plan A) has the owner’s stateroom amidships, and Plan B—found in most later models—has the master stateroom forward.

with stops for exploration only a few cruisers-under-power have accomplished. Their N52 was designed. A sample of the cruising-under-power way of life, written for boaters by boaters.

Whether you plan to spend years, or a couple of weeks a year, aboard, whether you’re interested in bluewater ocean passages, or enjoying a slow cruise on the Great Lakes or the rivers of America’s heartland, we offer stories of true boaters sharing their experiences and insights of the cruising lifestyle.Sailboats under sail power only are always the stand-on vessels in crossing and meeting situations, so look out for them when you’re under power.

Also, commercial vessels restricted by their draft or by fishing gear, such as nets or trawls, hold privilege over all recreational vessels, including sailboats.A submarine power cable is a transmission cable for carrying electric power below the surface of the water.

These are called "submarine" because they usually carry electric power beneath salt water (arms of the ocean, seas, straits, etc.) but it is also possible to use submarine power cables beneath fresh water (large lakes and rivers).Examples of the latter exist that connect the mainland.
