Steve Brady revived fond memories of his youth by restoring a 1974 Sea Ray SRV180 runabout
When Steve Brady was a teenager in the mid-1970s he would blast around Long Island Sound in a number of powerboats. Among them was a friend’s 18-foot Sea Ray runabout that he drove hard and fast.
“It was silly kid stuff,” Brady says. “My friend Greg and I were really into wave jumping and trying to get the engine out of the water, and that boat was a real hit for wave jumping.”

In the July issue, I wrote about our decision to downsize from the custom 43-foot Down East-style boat that has taken us safely and comfortably more than 12,000 miles during the last 10 years. We wanted something that would simplify our lives and allow us to continue cruising on a reduced budget as we slowly make the transition to retirement.

When Robert G. Müller sees Race Rock Light come into view during a boat tour of Long Island Sound lighthouses, he sees beyond its quaint Gothic Revival keeper’s house to a rich 132-year history of warning yachts, ships and fishing boats away from the rocks and strong tidal race that lie just southwest of New York’s Fishers Island.
These are the 12 lighthouses the General Services Administration is offering to give away.
