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.

Some folks were born made to wave the flag ...

I'm down in Lauderdale staying at the Marina Hilton at the moment, and right outside is docked a 65-foot 2002 Viking sportcruiser named Unfortunate Son. What a great name for a boat. The second I saw it I stopped and took a picture for this blog but unfortunately my iPhone is on the fritz at the moment. But really, as a name Unfortunate Son has it all.

Does Tiger Woods Constitute Provenance?

Word on the docks is that Tiger Woods is looking to unload his 155-foot Christensen named, ironically, Privacy. The Palm Beach Post has reported that the golfer is searching out a broker for the deal after his ex-wife Elin decided that the reported $2 million dollars of upkeep per year was not worth the price tag and turned ownership of the yacht down.
