Sail-World.com : All hands, stand to!

All hands, stand to!

It’s time for another voyage around the world as we bring you the latest powerboat news wherever it happens.

There’s some good news for anglers, too, for boat builders and for boat racers, all within the pages of Powerboat-World.

On the home front, good news indeed for Victorian anglers with stocks of snapper reported in good shape across Melbourne’s Port Phillip Bay.

In the United States, the famed Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute is looking into the life spans of squid and it’s not all promising news for these undersea creatures.

On the boat building front, Australia’s industry legend Bill Barry-Cotter, the man who established Mariner Cruisers, Riviera Marine and his present company Maritimo, is about to lead local boating into a new phases with his latest acquisition, Mustang.

What’s more, the new breed of Mustang will be among the first boats to offer Volkswagen power.

In the United States, famed manufacturer Chris-Craft gives us a close up look of a craft that the company president has described as 'ideal for Sydney Harbour.'

May, 2011, is still a fair way into the future, but organisers of the 2011 Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show are always planning for an expanded exhibition.

Weather, of course, is the subject we all talk about, especially in China, where a typhoon has forced organisers to place the 16th UIM China H20 GP on hold.

The weather along Australia’s eastern seaboard has not done recreational; boating any favours at all; constant rainfall (September was the wettest in Queensland history and October not looking much better) leaving boaters ashore, marinas deserted and showrooms hunting for customers.

Finally, the Federal Opposition has come out swinging labelling a move by the government’s Peter Garrett to extend a ‘Green Zone’ across the entire Coral Sea as 'a con.'

Well, criticise the government – that’s what the opposition is supposed to do.

In this particular matter, I am in full support of the opposition.
