https://www.joinmda.org/MyLockup/MyHomepage/tabid/175621/Participant/shoppe/Default.aspx That link connects you to the secure website for MDA. On the 30th I will be getting locked up “for good”. I am raising money for my bail (actually a pretty common WOB experience) If you have enjoyed what we are able to provide for you every week on the WOB… please visit the […]

A land and sea of mystery and enchantment… and my home for 7 of the last 10 days … sort of. I enjoyed the hospitality of the Explorer Ventures Turks and Caicos live-aboard. And its considered “Caribbean” even though its in the North Atlantic … its just one of myriad contradictions in the tropical region. […]

June 10th Governor Crist and the Florida Wildlife Commission issued an order that will expand the recreational scallop season along the Gulf Coast. The Bay Scallop season will now start on Saturday (July 19th) instead of July 1st and last either until oil closes the beds or September 10th, whichever comes first.

As a boating enthusiast, I appreciate how much a gigantic inland waterpark, like the Salton Sea, means as a recreational center. As a bird watcher, I can appreciate the newfound importance of the Salton Sea as a stopping point on migration routes. But as a true supporter of the ways of nature, I can only suggest that the State of California enjoy the Salton Sea while you can and stop wasting the precious liquid resources and money that you don’t have trying to beat the earth at her own game.

While preparing this week’s lecture for The Five Minute Professor, I stumbled upon some brilliant advice for the galley. Pasta is not a particularly “boater-friendly” food because it typically requires a lot of water sitting in a pan for 15 minutes or so. Even mild swells could wreck havock in the galley. But a little […]

Today Earth Day seems like a no-brainer… anyone who really enjoys the water or the out of doors at all, should see the benefits to preserving what we have. But not everyone has always embraced Earth Day. The first Earth Day combined with Vietnam War protesters. Early protesters against the April 22nd gatherings also included […]

I know that the President McKinley bit can sometimes get slightly derailed but its all based off of real solid information. McKinley Williams is a real honest to goodness financial professional and he is working a paper portfolio for Greg. The idea is that (as all true boat owners know) that boats cost more than […]

This is no April Fool’s joke… but April 1st has been the official Scubaradio birthday since 1997. First Mate Greg founded that show with his boss, Diver Dick. I joined up during 1998. Its been an interesting journey and if you’ve never listened to the show but enjoy the World of Boating, there may never […]

I write a weblog for two financial sites, three times a week… I thought that WOB listeners might be interested in this latest entry … for the full text see the from page of http://www.stockdr.com/ Gift Card Reform… It seems as though there is little in life that could be simpler than a gift card.

Greg will be out of the studio so Scott and Patrick and I get to decide on the topics… I thought, as  a change of pace, we might cover some boating news this week.  Patrick always has great stories… do you have any ideas?
