Lord Nelson is England’s hero, an 18th century admiral at once intrepid, dauntless and wise in the ways of the sea.
Bob and Sandy White’s Lord Nelson Victory Tug is a chip off the old block.
How do you get from kayaking in war-torn England to relaxing in the cockpit of a Tartan 34 on Long Island Sound?
You follow the saga of Klaus Nuki.
For John Sicuranza, being out on the water in a boat just comes naturally.
The 44-year-old electrical contractor from Old Lyme, Conn., grew up on the waters of Long Island Sound and the Connecticut River, riding around in his father’s 16-foot Glaspar and messing about in the family rowboat. He and his friends learned to drive boats long before they got into cars.
Charles and Marjie Gentry went to the 2008 Miami International Boat Show looking for a powerboat, something around 34 feet with a traditional feel.
And just a few more things. It had to fit in their condo slip at Marco Island, Fla., as well as on a flatbed trailer for transport to Maryland for a passage to the Great Lakes.
You can learn a lot spending time on a boat — how comfortable it is, how seaworthy, how it rides.
You also find out if it just “feels good.” Mike and Charlotte Hechler and their extended family spent most of last summer, as usual, cruising and day-tripping on their 36-foot Egg Harbor Sedan. But the Massapequa, N.Y., couple didn’t learn anything they didn’t already know.
