    2 The Mariner-Issue 154 2015

    The month before last, I had a boat called

    Bloodhound on the cover. Its a boat Id always

    wanted to write about because, in addition to it

    being an amazing wooden sailboat, it is something

    of a story of triumph. Bob Gilbert saw an imageof a boat from the 1800s and said, That needs

    to live again, and through his arduous efforts, it

    did.Bloodhoundis essentially a living work of art

    that one guy insisted be created. Subsequently it

    became a member of his family and a source of

    adventure for decades.

    It broke my heart to learn that Bob passed away

    soon after our interview. What I didnt mention

    in the story was Bob couldnt speak during the

    discussion; his voice was just a raspy whisper his

    wife Valerie sort of translated for us. They were

    incredibly upbeat, open and down to earth. Prior to

    the interview, I researched Bob and learned that he

    was an Oscar winning documentary lmmaker, an

    architect, a painter and a respected sculpture with

    works still in museums. He was a guy who would

    become inspired and then follow that inspiration

    wherever it would take him. Valerie said during the

    interview that Bob was relentless once he began

    something. Driven to the end.

    While I asked questions, Valerie, an accomplished

    actress, would not only tell me what Bob was

    saying but would also say things like, hes smiling

    and nodding his head things like that. It was

    one of the most unique and heartfelt interviewsIve done.

    When I heard the news, I knew I wanted to write

    something about him, but didnt want an obituary

    I thought about what a life like Bobs means to

    those who never met him, in this case my loca

    readership. I came up with this:

    This mans journey was about pursuing what was

    meaningful to him and through that, he changed

    and affected the lives of so many. He was inspired

    and he, in turn, inspired others. He did things that

    were not easy, but wouldnt quit until they were

    done and done right. What was produced was

    good better than good and, in the end, that is

    what a meaningful life is. Let us all get out and

    try to do the same in our own

    wayRIP Bob Gilbert.

    Recreational Boaters of California has submitted formal comments to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife

    Service, urging USFWS to include live-aboards as recreational vessels for purposes of access to

    services funded by the Clean Vessel Act [CVA].

    RBOC is concerned with the interpretation of the USFWS that recreational vessels used as live-

    aboards [anchor outs, and houseboats] are not considered recreational vessels by the federal

    government and are therefore not eligible for use of equipment or services funded by the CVA grant

    including vessel pump-outs, pump-out boats [mobile boat-to-boat services], pump-out services, or

    any equipment operated and maintained with CVA grants.

    In California, the CVA program has funded construction of hundreds of vessel pump-outs, most of

    which are used by both pleasure vessels and live-aboards.

    RBOC is concerned that the USFWS interpretation does not allow live-aboards to use the CVA

    funded equipment [vessel pump-outs] or allow CVA funded pump-out boats or services. The

    exclusion of recreational vessels used as live-aboards could have a signicantly negative impact onwater quality and would be detrimental to the objectives of the CVA.

    The USFWS regulatory proceeding is Docket Number FWSR9WSR20150006.

    Question: I made my own snorkel using a

    exible hose that is about ve feet long. No air

    supplying motor or any device is attached to it

    Its just a long exible hose with a check valve

    in it. If I use it to sh would I be in violation o

    any regulations? I am aware of the regulation

    prohibiting the use of scuba gear or surface-

    supplied air.

    Answer: Although this would be legal, using

    this type of snorkel would be very dangerous

    because you must be able to displace used air

    in your snorkel. You could be seriously harmed

    from breathing from a long snorkel because the

    air volume in the snorkel makes it difcult to

    displace exhaled air. Rebreathing used air can

    cause death or great bodily harm to a diver. Thi

    is why you do not see longer snorkels sold by

    dive shops.

    Rhode Island sailor/adventurer Joe Harris will be making a solo, non-stop,

    unassisted, round-the-world record attempt going from Newport, RI to

    Newport RI, leaving Antarctica to starboard, aboard his Class 40 sailboatGryphonSolo2 (GS2).

    The attempt will be made in accordance with the rules of the World Sailing

    Speed Record Council, who will time the start and nish in Newport.

    Additionally, a WSSRC Black Box will be installed on the boat, the data

    from which would be used to ratify any claim by GS2 that the existing

    record of 137d, 20h, 01m, 57s, set by Chinese sailor Guo Chuan in 2013,

    has been broken.

    I have been hoping, planning and dreaming of racing around the world

    since I was about 20 and now I am 55- not sure how that happened!

    Said Harris. This will no doubt be the greatest physical and mental

    challenge I have ever faced, and I would be lying if I said that the prospect

    of being alone on the great oceans of the world for four months was

    not an intimidating thought. It is. And the preparation at times seems

    overwhelming- but in the end, this will provide me the greatest test of my

    mettle that I can imagine.

    Solo sailing means 100% personal responsibility and self-reliance. It

    means no job too big and no job too small- everything from navigating,

    to sail changes and trimming to repairing what breaks, to cooking and

    cleaning. I will have to sail the boat quickly and wisely to beat the record

    hopefully making no mistakes that would lead to damage to the boat.

    Harris is an experiences solo sailor. He has participated in in the Atlantic

    Cup and the Newport-Bermuda race. Then Joe again competed in the all-

    Class 40 Atlantic Cup, and then in the Bermuda 1-2.

    10 Gift Ideas For Boaters

    The person who has a boater in their life around the holiday season is

    lucky. There are vast choices, boaters always always need something

    and they are sooo happy they didnt have to fork out the cash for this

    overpriced thing. So, with that in mind what kind of cool gifts can be

    gotten for the boating breed?

    10. Handheld GPS.Maybe this person has the nice mounted full color Garmin setup there on

    the pedestal or instrument rack, but an easy to grab waterproof handheld

    GPS is great for the extended dinghy ride or the fogged in passage from

    the mooring to the dinghy-dock. Or maybe this person doesnt have the

    kind of boat that has the nice set up and they already have a handheld

    GPS. Well, get them the next model up. Theyll have a backup and thenew model. Theyre like sunglasses good to have a spare kicking around.

    9. A Better First Aid KitIts not the sexiest gift but a good stocking stuffer that youll be glad you

    picked up. Chances are this boater friend of yours has a rst aid kit on

    board, but half the time, theyre not all that great. Check it out and if you

    see a plastic box that has three no name band-aids, a very small tube of an

    ointment youve never heard of and some gauze that looks weirdly thin

    upgrade time. Instead of the normal $20 one, spring for something in the

    $50-60 zone. Itll have extra goodies. Its the greatest feeling in the world

    to have a situation at sea and realize you can deal with it easily because

    youre prepared.

    8. New Docklines and FendersSome boaters will go to the trouble of breaking out the acetone and

    scrubbing their fenders, so they look all clean and white, but most of us

    just casually notice how disgusting they are and move on. Same goes for

    docklines the jet fuel falling from the sky eventually makes the lines

    turn brown with lth. They feel gross on the hands because they aregross.

    Replacing dock lines is wonderful. There is something new-underwear-

    ish about cleaning the boat and having nice fenders and spotless new

    docklines. Its one of those things that are great gifts because no normal

    boater wants to replace something that works just because its dirty. And

    dont start with the: why dont you just soak the lines, talk. Its just cool

    to get nice new lines

    7. FouliesHeres another item that, for many boaters, might be in a state of

    disappointment and/or disrepair. Maybe the zipper is salted shut on the

    bottom, or theyre insanely stained and ripped or there is just better stuff

    out there now. This person has daughters older than those things and the

    new materials are always a little lighter, a little warmer and have some

    kind of a new pocket or clip or gizmo that will make them happy. Its

    another thing thats great to get as a gift because the stoic boater will often

    make do.

    6. KnifeBoaters use knivesknives rust or get crusty and became less thanefcient. A new knife, say a leatherman, is bound to have some things that

    the old one didnt, plus this new one operates so easily and sweet! Thing

    that have purpose make boaters happy.

    5. Sirius Signal SOS Light - Flare Alternative Flares are a mandatory part of boating but they go stale, plus not everyone

    knows exactly how to work the things because theyve never been in any

    trouble. Im sure Ill gure it out as the water rises, many of us think

    But alas, there is a new device thats born from the question: is there

    anything else we can use besides pyrotechnic aming ares that have

    expiration dates? Well, yes there is a Coast Guard Approved SOS signa

    called SOS Distress Light made by Sirius Signal. Its battery operated andmeets all the criteria the CG lays down for a distress signal. Its compact

    clean and easy to operate. No more aresgood gift.

    4. Nice Pair of SunglassesGood quality sunglasses are more than a means to complete your look, they

    are important protection for your precious eyeballs. There are too many

    sailors out there who have literally cooked their eyes by not covering them

    on all of those sunny days. The beauty of the sunglasses gift is that its

    always cool to have a second or third pair. An indulgence some wouldn

    bestow upon themselves but will welcome once unwrapped. Polarized and

    dark by the way

    3. Professionally Shot Underway PhotographAny self-respecting boater has an unhealthy love and adoration of their

    boat. If this is the case for the one youre shopping for, they want a nice

    photograph of the boat being a boat. So many boaters dont have this

    because were always in the boat and rarely outside of it and watching

    her make her way through the water. That idea is actually a fear for most

    boatersAnyway, maybe they have a crappy one that someone took, or

    something of the boat at the dock but a nice shot of the boat underway is

    really cool.

    2. Cast Off for Catalina/Mexico VideosThis video was made quite a while ago, but it holds up for folks that

    havent made the voyage to Catalina yet or have only go to the same spot

    on the island over and over. Most boaters in this area are curious about

    scouting the entire islands and this video provides really good information

    for checking out Catalina more thoroughly. Its laid out in a friendly and

    digestible waygood stuff. But, if Catalina is old hat to your boate

    friend, the same people made one called Cast Off for Mexico which is

    equally good. Theyre available on Amazon and at West Marine.

    1. A Gift Certicate For a Complete Boat DetailingDetailing a boat is hard work and something most dont want to do

    However having a detailed boat is something almost everyone wants. So

    call up Dirty Yachts or Dennis Boat Maintenance and have them make

    that baby shine like a diamond. Detailing is a little expensive and therefore

    a great gift for the reluctant spender (trans; cheapskate). Its good for the

    boat and its good for the soul to have a boat all waxed, sealed, looking

    10 The Mariner-Issue 154 2015

    am a long time advocate of buying used. Back in 1973,

    I learned a very painful life lesson, when I traded in my

    beloved and beautiful 1967 RS/SS Camaro with the Mickey

    Thompson Package for a new lemon yellow, Chevy LUV

    pickup truck. Sheesh! Talk about a stupid kid. If I were

    Japanese I think I would have committed Hara-kiri.

    Well, my beautiful 67 Camaro would be worth $60,000+

    today, and that piece of crap LUV truck wouldnt bring $25 at the scrap

    yard. I have never bought a new anything since...well, except socks and

    underwear. But the way prices are goin up all the time Im considering

    the Goodwill store for those as well...hey, thats why theres hot water and


    Now, if youre so loaded with loot that the president of your bank comes

    out to greet you and invite you to lunch whenever you walk thru the

    door, stop reading now. You dont need my advice, as a matter of fact I

    need yours... call me - well do lunch. However, if youre like most of us

    who work hard for our money, then pay attention. And pay really close

    attention if youre a boater, because there are big bucks to be saved whenbuying a used boat instead of a new one.

    As a general rule, pleasure boats lose about 25% of their value by the end

    of the rst year of ownership. By ve years, that loss has grown to 50%,

    and about 3-5% annual depreciation thereafter! The bottom is hit at about

    20 years and the price remains fairly stable after that. That downward

    spiral translates into the loss of a lot of your hard earned chips in the game

    of life.

    Well, I hope that not so cheery news has persuaded you to buy a boat thats

    over ve-years old, which has already taken the high velocity depreciation

    hit. Now, lets talk about the issues and concerns associated with bottom

    feeding in the boat market.

    The rst step is to educate yourself regarding your local market. There

    are various price guides on line, but pore over local boat publications and

    listings. Boat brokers and agents are a great help, but educate yourself

    rst; become a knowledgeable and selective buyer. Even if you plan on

    working with a broker, it really helps to know what you want before you

    start seriously shopping.

    Depending on your level of experience, you may want to check out the

    FSBO (For Sale By Owner) ads/listings in your area before working

    with an agent or broker. However, I am of the opinion that a buyer can

    work with a broker and still keep an eye on private party listings. But

    always remember, if the broker or agent is the procuring cause of the

    sale they are entitled to their commission. If youre working with a broker

    be a loyal client, and if youre unhappy with the arrangement or the service

    nd another broker to represent you.

    Remember, a broker is more than just a salesperson. A good broker/saleagent will provide information and advice on surveyors, documentation

    contracts, mechanics, riggers, potential problems with different boat

    models/manufacturers, slip arrangements, nancing, escrow process

    and, hopefully, act as a buffering cool head during negotiations that, a

    times, can become stressful. Brokers speak the language and generally

    communicate well with other brokers and marine professionals. Take

    advantage of that knowledge base.

    If you are a total novice, it may be money well spent to have a surveyor

    or knowledgeable marine professional accompany you and your broker

    - especially if you have several boats on your list of potentials. An

    experienced mariner can often help you winnow the eld of potential

    boats down to two or three nalists during an afternoon.

    While youre out toe-rail kicking here are a few things to watch for when

    checking out your list of perspective boats.

    1. Engines. If you open up the engine compartment and nd oily wate

    sloshing around the engine bed, more rust than paint on the engine and

    fuel lters, clamps, belts and hoses that look like theyve been around

    since before Bill and Monica hooked up...well, keep looking.

    2. Sails and canvass are expensive. If theyre worn or look like a giant

    fungi covered petri dish from your 7th grade science class gure on some

    severe wallet pain in the near future.

    3. Water damage can get expensive fast. And remember, youre gonna wan

    to nd out how the water got in to begin with. Leaks...Bad! Woodwork..


    4. Running and standing rigging. Riggers charge about $100 an hour and

    all the stainless hardware, fasteners, winches and wire aint cheap.

    5. If the electronics look like they belonged in Frankensteins laboratory

    with Igor hunched over them, then anticipate much wailing and gnashing

    of teeth as your checking account balance approaches two digits.

    Grabbin BugsLobster Season is open

    Lobster season is open and anglers armed with hoop nets or divers

    using their bare (gloved perhaps) hands will be taking to the crevices,

    underwater rocks and caves of Santa Monica Bay seeking out the tasty but

    nimble California spiny lobster. The season runs from the present untilMarch 16, but now is when lobster shermen are out in full force.

    After the sun sets, certain areas of the water will be alight with green

    oating glowsticks that are marking underwater traps set by boaters who

    have deployed a special net (laden with mackerel or sardine bits) thats

    designed to outsmart and capture the nocturnal crustacean referred to

    informally as bugs.

    For the lobster shermen who opt to cast nets from the comfort of a boat,

    the beginning of lobster season is a great time to spend some time on the

    water with friends and family as its a change from the normal daytime

    shing trips. Theres a sense of adventure to be had cruising around in the

    dark looking for a nocturnal catch. Also, this particular target is a premium

    delicacy worth a small fortune at a restaurant or even the supermarket.

    Local divers also get up for lobster season. While there are some divers

    that spearsh, many hobbyist divers usually head over to Catalina where

    the water is clear and simply check out whats going on below the surface.

    But the prospect of staying local and actually catching dinner with their

    own hands gets a good amount of divers off the couch and onto the ocean

    oor scouring for the agile spiny lobster.

    Once submerged, it can be a lonely spooky sort of world in this search

    for these hiding critters. For those new to the sport Divemaster Craig

    Edelman offers this advice:

    When attempting to grab them in their holes, be aware that they

    [sometimes] share their caves with the California morey eel. Lobsters

    come out at night to start foraging for food. They defend themselves with

    the use of their spiny protective shells and their lightning-fast reexes that

    enable them to swim away backwards - until they nd solace in another


    Edelman also reminds lobster shermen to shoot for the middle range

    when it comes to size:

    Remember, if it looks small - it is, Edelman said. Therefore let it go

    Objects underwater, when viewing with your mask on, look 25% bigge

    and 25% closer - and you cannot bring a lobster to the surface and then

    measure it.

    And, let the big ones go, he continued. The bull bugs and when

    say big I mean the ones that grab onto your arm and start dragging you

    back into their hole let the daddies go because they help contribute to

    the millions of tiny lobsters every season which will grow big enough for

    you to take in about three to four years.

    While the California Department of Fish and Game has declared that the

    shery is currently sustainable, there is an ongoing shery managemen

    plan underway. According to the agency, feedback from the shermen

    is crucial and essential for them to understand and manage the lobsters

    future sustainability, which is why there are new changes in requirements

    As always there is a limit of seven lobsters per person and everyone diving

    or shing for lobsters must have a valid California shing license, a spiny

    lobster report card and a measuring gauge to ensure legal size (minimum

    of three and one-fourth inches measured in a straight line on the mid-line

    of the back}. In addition, however, there are new obligations. According

    to the Department:

    Lobster report card data is very important for CDFWs marine biologists

    to manage Californias lobster shery. More than 19,000 report cards were

    received by the April 30 deadline last year. Pursuant to the California

    Code of Regulations, a $20 non-return fee will be levied for unreturned

    report cards or those that are returned after the deadline.

    There is currently a strong El Nio event occurring in the eastern Pacic

    with above-average water temperatures expected to continue into the

    months ahead in Southern California.

    Lobster catches have historically been considerable during El Nio

    events, so its looking to be a plentiful season, said Travis Buck, a

    marine environmental scientist with the California Department of Fish

    and Wildlife (CDFW).

    Its time to say so-long to one of the mostactive seasons on record. Although itappears the tuna have gone south for theseason following warmer waters, anglers

    are still catching plenty of yellowtailaround the bay and the bottom shingcontinues to ll bags with sheepsheadand some small bite for white seabass.

    Theres still rocksh around at thetime of this writing the half-day boatshad counts in the hundreds with somelingcod and red snapper showing uptoo. In fact one day there were 11shermen on the Spirre and they reeledin 85 red snapper, 15 rocksh and 2lingcod not bad for late November.

    On the lobster front, hoop-netters aregetting their limits and they have been agood size to boot. Remember sardines arethe meal bugs enjoy and be sure to reviewall the rules for sizes, cards limits andother legal amtters if you havent already.

    Weather is a factor during this time of yearso be sure to check your NOAA VHF if yourheading to Catalina or the outside Islands.

    Until next time..tight lines

    Suit Up! Its Berger Time!

    As 2015 darkens and the dawn of a new year sheds light, there will be custom diets formulated, anti-smoking patches purchased, unused gym memberships

    renewed and for local yacht-racers, January 2016 brings a clean slate to begin another season of high level (mid level at least!) competition out on theliquid race track. And for everyone serious about racing in Southern California, its the rst edition of Del Rey Yacht Clubs Berger/Stein Series on

    January 5th that kicks off the season and gets the adrenaline and motivation owing once more.

    On that Saturday, in the late morning, a portion of the Santa Monica Bay will be crowded with over one hundred boats checking their watches, making

    last minute adjustments and plotting their strategy. In the cruiser division (Stein), sailors will be eyeing the conditions of the course, a 12-mile triangle in

    the bay, while the racing division (Berger) will be thinking more long range. Their mission is to sail up to Malibu and back, a 44-mile course. Through

    the years, because of the season were in, this contest has seen raging winds shrieking through the rig, down to nothing at all.

    For many crews the morning of the Berger/Stein will be a time for old rivals/friends to once again meet or maybe talk a little friendly smack from boa

    to boat.

    This rst race has been known to attract some of the hottest boats in Southern California so theres sure to be some serious competition. Some of the

    best crews on the scene should be in attendance, ready to compete, but more importantly the Berger/Stein says to the racing community its time to

    get back and get racing for another season.

    A lightning protection system aboard a boat

    should have a dual purpose:

    1. It should primarily serve as a lightning

    prevention system, the purpose of which

    should be to continuously shed any charge

    built up by the boat, thereby rendering the

    boat invisible to lightning.

    2. It should secondarily be asked to serve as

    a lightning strike protection system, to safely

    conduct a direct strike to ground.

    It should consist of a robust primary path,

    which should be designed to safely conduct

    a direct strike to ground. Then, a series of

    secondary paths should be designed to

    safely dissipate the accumulation of charge

    by the boat, which should feed into the

    primary path. This primary path, shouldconsist of three components:

    1) An air terminal connected to

    2) a robust conductor leading vertically in a

    straight path to

    3) a ground plate immersed in the water.

    The top-most end, or air terminal, should

    be a sharply pointed spike. As for the so

    called robust conductor of the system,

    which takes the path from the top-most end

    of the system to the water, it must be as

    direct as possible and use long radii, ratherthan sharp bends along the primary path to

    the grounding plate. The connections must

    offer low electrical resistance or the energy

    of a strike may instantly heat and melt the


    Tinned wire is recommended, as usual.
