Time To Batten Down The Hatches
South Florida Braces For Matthew

So, the SYS crew has been busy doubling up lines, putting out additional fenders, and springing boats off the dock. Toys are tethered, canvas and cushions removed, and fingers crossed. All we can do now is wait (and make sure our own homes are also ready to weather the storm).

Here we go, mates. Stay safe!

Time Out On The Beach
Captain Charged With BUI

Well, this is unfortunate. We don't know the particulars of this early morning beaching off Palm Beach but, thankfully, we've not heard any reports of injuries (granted, we don't know the extent of damage done to the yacht).

The captain has been charged with boating under the influence which prompts us to remind our fellow sailors: "Better boating means safety first!" Don't booze and cruise, mates.

"Dump Me" - Boat Abandoned at Town Marina
Identifying Marks Intentionally Removed

It's unfortunate when boat owners don't follow through on their responsibilities, including proper disposal of derelict vessels at their own expense - not by forcing taxpayers to pay, in this case, up to $5000.

Pat Farrell, the Deputy Commissioner of Public Safety of the Town of Babylon, where the boat was dumped, reports this type of thing happens about 11 times each year, with fewer than half the vessels' owners being located. Obviously, costs add up. Read on ...

31' Sea Ray For Sale - Perfect For Family Fun & Cocktail Cruises

Ahoy, mates! Our client is moving up and it's time to offer this gem:

"Nan~Sea" 31' Sea Ray Amberjack (1992)

This Amberjack boasts rare CAT diesel power (1000 hr service just completed) and while she was a member of our management fleet this past year, Stanley Yacht Services oversaw extensive upgrades, including:

  • New marine air conditioning
  • New Maxwell windlass
  • New helm station gauges
  • New Fusion stereo
  • New Sunbrella interior
  • New cuddy cabin flooring
  • New custom sunshade for aftdeck
  • New helm chair

  • Rebuilt Mase generator

Other features include Raymarine plotter, radar and autopilot, custom top with full Eisenglass enclosure. In the cuddy cabin, you will find a microwave, fridge, two burner stove and VacuFlush head. Exterior cushions are in great shape.

During haul out this past summer, we did a full bottom job (you may remember the pics we posted) and balanced the props.

She really is a great boat, mates! Nothing comparable on the market and Nan~Sea is priced right at $49,995.00.

Call Capt Ben (954) 288-0877 with any questions or to book a look. And hurry because she'll be snapped up soon!

EPIRBs Save Lives But ....
You Must Avoid Transmitting False Alarms!

The Coast Guard would really appreciate it if you don't accidentally activate your EPIRB. After all, pointless search and rescue efforts are expensive and distract them from doing their real job.

Like, say, for instance, this past Sunday, when Coast Guard Air Station Cape Cod launched an MH-60 Jayhawk along with a rescue boat in response to ... well, here ... we'll let them tell you what happened:

Coast Guard responds to false alarm sent by expired beacon in Rhode Island

In the words of Lt. John Mansolillo, command duty officer at the First Coast Guard District command center.
EPIRBs are vital life saving equipment, but when they are not properly maintained, false distress is signaled and unnecessary searches are conducted. Batteries must be removed from EPIRBs when they are decommissioned.
So, please beware, mates. Handle your EPIRBs carefully. Make sure you register them accurately, keep your info current, and take the batteries out when you're no longer using them!

As always, thanks to the United States Coast Guard for all they do.
