The Best RC Boat for the Money

Someone is going to love this toy boat! For the price, The Sharkool Radio Controlled Racing Boat is a blast. The speed is insane! Excellent proportional steering, water cooled motor, waterproof and self-righting (so even young kids can drive it without worry of it flipping). Plus, the steering is auto-correcting so it goes straight on straight-aways. The range is plenty far enough at 500 feet. Get two, race them (and you can keep one boat for yourself). It even comes with two rechargeable batteries for even more racing time – each battery lasts about 15 minutes. An amazing deal and a great gift for a boater. Find it at Amazon…

The Beauty of Ecosphere

When you’re away from the water remind yourself of its beauty with an EcoSphere Closed Aquatic Ecosystem. Made from hand blown glass, each EcoSphere is a completely enclosed, self-sustaining little world. The EcoSphere only needs indirect light and comfortable room temperature (between 60F and 80F.) The EcoSphere works on the basis that a closed system recycles its nutrients and does not produce excess waste. The shrimp consume the algae and micro-organisms and they, in turn, break down the shrimp waste. External light, either artifical or natural, keeps the algae growing. There is no feeding or water changes required. The average life span is between 2 and 3 years – each EcoSphere comes with a replacement, recharge or upgrade policy. Find it at Amazon…

The Best Survival Book

“The best survival book in a decade” -Outside Magazine, 438 Days is the true story of the fisherman who survived FOURTEEN months in a small boat drifting SEVEN THOUSAND miles across the Pacific Ocean.

On November 17, 2012, a pair of fishermen left the coast of Mexico for a weekend fishing trip in the open Pacific. That night, a violent storm ambushed them as they were fishing eighty miles offshore. As gale force winds and ten-foot waves pummeled their small, open boat from all sides and nearly capsized them, captain Salvador Alvarenga and his crewmate cut away a two-mile-long fishing line and began a desperate dash through crashing waves as they sought the safety of port.

Fourteen months later, Alvarenga, now a hairy, wild-bearded and half-mad castaway, washed ashore on a nearly deserted island on the far side of the Pacific. He could barely speak and was unable to walk. He claimed to have drifted from Mexico, a journey of some seven thousand miles.

438 Days is the first-ever account of one of the most amazing survival stories in modern times. Based on dozens of hours of exclusive interviews with Alvarenga, his colleagues, search-and-rescue officials, the remote islanders who found him, and the medical team that saved his life, 438 Days is an unforgettable study of the resilience, will, ingenuity and determination required for one man to survive more than a year lost and adrift at sea. Do not miss this amazing and true ocean survival book. 438 Days: The True Story

A landmark book by marine biologist Wallace J. Nichols on the remarkable effects of water on our health and well-being. Why are we drawn to the ocean each summer? Why does being near water set our minds and bodies at ease? In BLUE MIND, Wallace J. Nichols revolutionizes how we think about these questions, revealing the remarkable truth about the benefits of being in, on, under, or simply near water. Combining cutting-edge neuroscience with compelling personal stories from top athletes, leading scientists, military veterans, and gifted artists, he shows how proximity to water can improve performance, increase calm, diminish anxiety, and increase professional success. BLUE MIND not only illustrates the crucial importance of our connection to water-it provides a paradigm shifting “blueprint” for a better life on this Blue Marble we call home.

The Guideboat

The Guideboat is arguably the fastest fixed-seat rowboat in the world. Any rowboat you look at, it’s way faster and holds 10 times its weight. It’s also smooth, silent and tough. In founder Stephen Gordon’s words, “We used the superb vintage Rushton to make the mold that produces our current boats. What we produced is a boat that is functionally and visually the same in terms of silhouette. It’s almost identical to the Rushton, but it’s composite on the hull.”
