FROM THE BILGE
For me one of the joys of being in the marine industry is the ability to do something that I truly love. My work is more than my profession, it’s what I love to do. I’m on the water to work and to play. It truly is my passion. I guess I could be accused of being myopic in terms of these activities, but I don’t see it that way. 

Personally, beyond my passion for all things nautical, I have developed many long-term friendships with people who also share this passion. Which makes writing this installment of From the Bilge so personal, as I know many of you who will read this are more than clients; you are friends. Read more

LAST KNEWSLETTER CHALLENGE & WINNER
CHALLENGE:
In the 1987 movie "Back to the Beach" the actor who portrayed the bartender also played a well-known character from a long-running sitcom. In his cameo appearance he said:
"You know, I lived with a guy for years. A real genius. He could take a couple of these pineapples or a couple of coconuts with some string and wire and make a nuclear reactor. But he couldn't fix a two-foot hole in a boat!"

Who was the character, and for a bonus, what was the name of the boat that he was referring to?
ANSWER
The character was none other than Gilligan, from Gilligan's Island and the boat was the S.S. Minnow. Why did Mrs. Howell pack so many clothes for a three hour tour anyway?
WINNER!
