NOTES AND TALKING POINTS


From the Helm, Boating Broadcast is brought to you by MarineMax, the nation’s largest boat retailer. See more episodes on the MarineMax Lifestyle Blog

HEADLINES: 

First up in headlines, brewing beer on a boat! Beer can be hard to find when cruising remote atolls in the Pacific, so you have two choices. First, bring it with you. Second, make it from scratch. Learn about how a pair of sailors took up homebrewing from their sailboat.

Next up, we take a look at the Seakeeper 1, the smallest model in the manufacturer's line of computer-controlled gyroscopic stabilizers. Fitting boats as small as 23 feet (7.01 meters), the proprietary design centers on a steel flywheel that spins in a vacuum to eliminate up to 95% of boat roll and the danger, fatigue, anxiety, and seasickness that go with it.

Finally, we visit an unsinkable do-it-all, the Boston Whaler 280 Vantage. Today, a boating family's essential requirements for a big dayboat remain mostly unchanged. But new dual-console dayboats, such as Boston Whaler's 280 Vantage, offer considerable differences in power, speed, seaworthiness, safety, and efficiency, and with the added benefit of open cockpits fore and aft. So, though the requirements may be the same, boats like the 280 Vantage raise boaters' expectations. 

GUEST: 

"Don't chase the money; just do what you enjoy. The money will follow." Take it from Tristan Mortlock, the Captain of the multi-award-winning Super Yacht AWOL. He's better known as the Super Yacht Captain on his YouTube Channel.

Originally from the UK, he moved to Spain at an early age. When he was 14, his father bought a 185 Sea Ray, and his love affair with boating and the water began. Hear more about his story and how he went from cleaning boats at a local marina to being the primary Captain of a vessel well over 100-feet. For Captain Tristan, it's just "a way of life!"
