What's that smell?

A Pantaenius client was sitting on board his large flying bridge cruiser in her permanent berth at the marina.

The following is his account of a harrowing series of events.

The trauma and triage of Debbie

For Pantaenius Sail and Motor Yacht Insurance, Tropical Cyclone Debbie was very much a case of careful and considerate triage and trauma management. There were raw emotions to deal with, which required large amounts of compassion. So what was it like through their eyes, both as the first team on the ground, and in an office where the phone rang white-hot?

There is always something to learn...

Did you know that Marlins have a gland near their eye that secrets a special oil that is thought to make them even more slippery through the water? Until about a year ago, no one did! Also, did you know that the Oceanic White Tip Shark has special sensory structures in its head that act like a natural GPS utilising the earth’s geomagnetic field to locate itself in our vast oceans as it travels around the globe?

Safe Anchoring

Undoubtedly this is one of the things we all think we do well, but a few aide memoirs and prompts can never go astray. Indeed they can help you to have a great time boating, no matter where you go or what you like to do.

Back to Basics

Thanks to satellite navigation and electronic instrumentation, the mariners of today live in privileged times. You could easily say that there is a genuine over-reliance on GPS and Chartplotters. Indeed there are now many examples of people’s blind faith in the system, careless plotting at the wrong magnification and inability to read the instructions or clarify what certain terms mean, like ‘No information available’. So when things go wrong at sea, which they always do, it’s important to be able to navigate using some of the more traditional methods.
