The PMY Rendezvous Was Fun

It sure was. About thirty boats and probably 100 people chowing down on mahi and Bimini bread, soaking in the sun, soaking in the water, soaking in the Kalik. You name it, and somebody probably soaked in it in Bimini this past weekend.

PMY's Throwing Down in Bimini

Welp, I’m shipping off for Bimini tomorrow for The PMY Yacht Club Rendezvous at the Bimini Sands Resort. The party starts on the 1st and goes through the Fourth of July, otherwise known as The Best Holiday of the Year Hands Down. Frankly I’m a little torn about being abroad on America’s birthday, but I’ll be acting so damn American to make up for it that it’ll make your face hurt*, so everything should even out.

Bailey Mako Rodeo Here I Come

Welp, it's that time of year again. I'm headed down to the Brett T. Bailey Mako Rodeo out of Hoffman's Marina in Brielle, NJ, tomorrow. Ahh, the old stomping grounds. I love getting down to the Jersey Shore in the summertime. Just me, the Boss, and the Situation palling around together on the boardwalk, sharing cotton candy, rocking out to Bon Jovi, maybe grabbing some late night cheeseballs. Fantastic.

 

Gulf Sickness?

Hey readers, I'm looking to gather information on anyone who may have gotten sick from the BP Oil Spill or subsequent cleanup.  If you or anyone you know has been afflicted with something that you can prove, or otherwise you highly suspect was a result of the spill—particularly if you believe the oil dispersant known as Corexit was the culprit—please email me at kevin.koenig@powerandmotoryacht.com. I'd like to hear your story.

Weekend Plans Sunk?

A 70-foot boat named Atlantic Traveler capsized in the Manasquan Inlet yesterday, apparently blocking off the inlet for some say, as much as a week. All three crew members escaped the boat unharmed after being dumped into the chilly waters in the pre-dawn hours. I'm glad everybody was safe, and hats off to the Coast Guard for making a successful rescue.
