Plowing a Fallow Field

By Jason Y. Wood | Posted 2014-12-08 11:07

I’ll never forget it. A few years ago I found myself on a borrowed center console with five people, some of the most knowledgeable boaters I knew. We had spent a full day exploring the sounds, channels, and backwaters of the North Carolina coast, swimming at anchor and topping off the day with a dockside dinner that wound up just around sunset.

What I Do at the Boat Show

By Jason Y. Wood | Posted 2014-10-30 10:59

Sure I try to see all the boats that I can. And I could easily get lost among the hulls, standing at various helms and peering into an imagined fog looking for the next channel marker... But I digress, since there’s much to do.

Coast Guard Foundation Raises the Bar

By Jason Y. Wood | Posted 2014-10-10 09:59

Recently, I was fortunate to attend the Coast Guard Foundation’s 34th Annual Salute to the Coast Guard in New York City, where honors were bestowed and funds were raised at a gala event in a midtown hotel. Before a crowd of nearly 700 comprising numerous U.S. Coast Guard officers, including the newly installed Commandant, Admiral Paul F. Zukunft, local dignitaries, commercial-shipping and shipbuilding representatives, and friends and family of the Coast Guard and its members, the foundation honored the heroic acts of the helicopter crew CG-6515 from Point Reyes, California (above), and the crew of Motor Life Boat 47212 (MLB) from Station Humboldt Bay, California (below). Both exhibited exceptional bravery in the line of duty to rescue civilians in dangerous situations, and a video presentation showing interviews with the Coast Guard personnel involved highlighted both their extraordinary poise in some challenging situations as well as their startling youth.

The Deck Perspective

By Jason Y. Wood | Posted 2014-09-30 13:32

The best thing about summer where I live in coastal Connecticut—and we’re in the thick of it as I write this—is the way we can live within a stone’s throw of the Sound (as in Long Island Sound) yet manage to keep things separate enough that it offers a true disconnect. By disconnect I don’t mean it in the what the hell is going on with this Wi-Fi? way but in the good unplugged way, that feel the warmth of the summer sun on your shoulders way. Keeping a boat nearby is the surest way to effect a much-needed escape, even for a little while. It’s funny, the difference I feel from when my feet are on my driveway to when they actually touch the deck of a boat, is downright stark.
