From the beginning of time, people have ventured out into the water. They designed and built all kinds of boats. They very quickly realized that rowing or paddling was a lot of work. They held up what ever they could find, and the boats went with the wind. They developed sails, masts, rudders, keels and much more. Immediately they worked to go faster than anyone else they knew and racing began.

I just returned from the Hanse Group dealer meeting in Germany. Hanse is tied with Bavaria for the second largest boat builder in the world. Hanse is bigger in sail and Bavaria is bigger in power. At the meeting there was a big presentation on the state of boat building.

One of my friends and customers, Edward Smith, invited me to come sail with him on his Hanse 545 in the British Virgin Island of Tortola. I thought that could be fun before the busy sailing season begins in Marblehead. Edward then mentioned there might be a little race between his boat and Deni's Hanse 545, also a customer of mine.

The 2017 New England Boat Show started will a series of snow storms that made move in and set up a bit of a panic. It was snowing as we moved our boats in so they got really dirty. Then Thursday a major snow storm prevented us from even getting to the show. Somehow, Friday, we got it together and got the boats clean and the booth set up for opening on Saturday.

Key West 2017 will be remembered as the year of the great weather. I have done Key West 5 times now and the weather is always a huge improvement from January Marblehead weather, but this year was perfect. Every day had a low temperature of 74 with a high of 78. No rain at all. Mostly sunny to totally sunny skies every day. Winds were about 18 to 20 Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. Winds were slowly lessoning the rest of the week. Seas were pretty lumpy on the windy days usually about 3 feet. The water is warm about 72 degrees.
