Focuses on traditional woodworking skills and precise wood joinery techniques needed to work in boat building or woodworking trades. Steve Thurston's company Quantum Sails made it through the economoic downturn, others weren't so lucky. Steve Thurston at Quantum Sails designed his factory floor so employees sit inside an ice box to sew together sail pieces. The Rhode Island Marine Trade Association says the boat building industry is seeing signs of recovery after the economic downtown. The Rhode Island Marine Trade Association says the biggest growth is in the composite technology such as carbon fibers. Despite receiving no state assistance, the Croatian small boat building industry is thriving. From semi-submarines to luxury charter yachts, the impressive diversity of quality boats on display at the 6th Days of Croatian Small Boat Building fair which closed on April 27, 2014, had one thing in common — the producers were Croatian.
Croatia has a rich and proud ship building tradition, one which requires government assistance these days as competitiveness and the economic crisis have reduced the orders to a fraction of the heyday of ship building on the Adriatic coast. The Croatian-built semi-submarine business has been a smash hit on the Adriatic, and exports to the Caribbean are now under discussion. While there are subsidies for the large shipyards, the small boat builders of Croatia receive no financial assistance whatsoever, and yet they still manage not only to survive, but to thrive. The fair took place once more in the marina of the luxury Hotel Le Meridien Lav in Podstrana, just south of Split, an event attended by Digital Journal. We started talking about the concept in 2008 after we visited several boat shows in the country and the region.
The 6th Days of Croatian Small Boat Building took place at exclusive Hotel Meridien Lav in Split. One of the biggest challenges, and this, unfortunately, has nothing to do with the EU, is getting our own country to recognise small boat building as an important industry and to stop treating it as an unwanted child. Luka Colnago, whose innovative aluminium boats have been exported to the Cameroon Coast Guard Service.
The latest example is the 2020 Industrial strategy proposal which was composed by the Ministry of Economy in which; again, small boat builders are not mentioned.
Adriatic Work Boats, whose aluminium patrol boats are exported as far away as the coast guard of Bangladesh.
Despite government assistance for the shipbuilding industry, the small boat builders do not receive any state support whatsoever. ECLIPSE with Two helicopters, a submarine and 114 suites (with balconies) It's A designed and equiped to sail to the Antarctic. Farr Yacht Design has released the first 3D renderings of the new Super 12 yachts that will be sailed in the San Francisco Yacht Racing Challenge beginning in July 2017 on San Francisco Bay. Britton Ward, the lead designer of the Super 12s, said the renderings are a big step in the process leading to the final design. Ward said Tuesday that the entire staff in Annapolis, Maryland, is working on the project so tooling production can begin in May. The Super 12s are a modernized, one-design version of the venerable 12 Meters that were used in the America's Cup from 1958-1987. The San Francisco Yacht Racing Challenge, also known as the Super 12 Cup, was founded by former America's Cup executive Tom Ehman. The Fizes Valley and the adjacent tributaries, stretch over 460 kilometers in Transilvania( an historic Principality, once independent, which is currently within the North West of Romania).
The District includes nearly two dozen traditional farming villages and is currently under the joint administration of two NGO's - Eco Transilvania and Ecochoice - A under the terms of a five-year contract with the Romanian Ministry of the Environment. When you set up aA CHAPSA transfer you will normally need to visit a branch of your bank and take your bank card and a form of identification such as your driving licence. Before making aA CHAPSA payment it is worthwhile checking your banka€™s value limit for sending a Faster Payment as potentially payments of up to A?100,000 can be sent via this payment system and if this system is an option it is likely to be cheaper or even free. Consumer protection providing immediate refund will apply if you are an innocent victim of fraud a€“ your claim needs to be made within the 13 months of fraudulent transaction leaving your account. CHAPSA payments can be sent to most UK bank accounts and will arrive and can be drawn on the same day providing the funds are released before 3pm. Newly qualified yacht engineers can expect $19 to $20 an hour in South Florida and there just aren't enough of them. Launched seven years ago in a hangar-like building near Florida's Turnpike in Miramar, Broward College's marine program aims to prepare students to handle mechanical and electrical needs on yachts a€” everything from engines to air conditioning systems, electric generators to desalinization units.
The Marine Industries Association of South Florida pushed for the program, and Broward College increasingly collaborates with association members and other businesses to place students in jobs. In all, the marine industry a€” including yachts and other craft and businesses from manufacturing to sales and service a€” supports more than 136,000 jobs in South Florida, mainly in Broward. Yacht technicians are just a tiny fraction of that total, which also includes carpenters, captains, salespeople and others. Indeed, demand for yacht technicians is so strong that the Broward College program, with 55 students enrolled, is nearing capacity in Miramar. Alex Thomson (40) and Pepe Ribes (43) A were swapping the jib top for the Headsail and while neither was in place all the stress went on one forestay causing the main steel pin in the the drum to shear.
Two years after a putsch against the Irish Sailing Association (ISA) a new five-year strategic plan has put the association on a new tack, reports The Irish Times.
If nothing else the blueprint serves as written confirmation the ISA no longer sees itself purely in a a€?national governing bodya€? role but in the same boat as the clubs and classes it was set up to serve. The plan is based on the views that were put to a a€?Strategic Review Groupa€? in 2013 that assessed how the association needed to adjust to better serve the sport. Its author Neil Murphy, a former ISA president, says the underlying principle is moving from a a€?governance approacha€? to one of the principal stakeholders in the sport a€?working together with a goal of encouraging and developing participationa€?. Ita€™s still just a plan on paper a€“ not yet on water a€“ and for this master plan to work it must first get the buy-in of a 17,000-plus strong sailing community, spread across a network of clubs on lakes, rivers and around the coast.
Ita€™s a major step forward on previous strategic plans but Murphy warns a€?it can only work if there is a joint commitment between the clubs and the associationa€?. Irish sailing publication afloat.ie reports, a€?This blueprint looks like a positive step forward not least because it makes an attempt to implement measurable targets for the good of grassa€“roots sailors. AYB discovers major A UK art world websites and BBC propagating identical mythical UK law to justify claims to copyright of photos of Paintings in the public domain.
A Art A Collections cannot gain and sell or transfer legal Copyright without creating original art.
The PCF a registered charity claims to have digitised the UK's national collection of oil paintings.

In the past whenever we had a mention on national television, the ISP's server would be overwhelmed by the sudden huge volume of traffic and most of the sites visitors justA could not get throughA the log jam. The beauty of cloud computing is that it is infinitely scaleable, we can use as much bandwith and storage as we need and never need to interrupt our site to move it to a bigger server again. To make this available to all marine companies we have set up Hosting.AYB to provide cloud hosting at lower rates then normally paid for traditional shared hosting.

Tens of thousands of visitors visited this grand show that features 168 foreign and domestic exhibitors. The largest yacht at the show was the RP110 model designed by Horizon Yachts, the fifth-largest custom luxury yacht builder in the world, which is also a winner of the 2014 Taiwan Excellence Awards. Meanwhile, Kha Shing Enterprises presented its latest Monte Fino CAT 45 Sports Fish model, with ample space for fishing and recreation that's specially designed for fishing fans or taking buddies on fishing voyages.
Taiwan yacht builders have returned from all over the world for this first boat show that's packed with prestigious international guests. Taiwan yacht parts and components suppliers have also attracted the interest of many international shipbuilding companies. In addition to overseas visitors, the Boat Show has also attracted visitor registration of executives from over 500 well-known companies in Taiwan.

All Schooners have at least two masts which were originally gaff rigged and built in Holland in the Fifteen hundreds. It is still in early stages, but the idea is that if you use readily available basic cheap diy materials and avoid fancy-priced sea-going marine fittings It is possible to build a simple solar powered floating home with electric drive and basic home utilities, suitable for use on inland lakes and canals.
The design is modular, so that a small home can be dis-assembled and transported in a standard Ford transit van.
There is currently a DIY manual and various Kits and components to supplement your local supplier. A Yachtsmen from 23 countries came together to put their all in thrillingly close competition all enhanced by the glorious Carribean sunshine andlocal festive atmosphere which was rocking for five days and nights! A luxury yacht is lifted from the water in Kaohsiung Harbor and transported to the Kaohsiung Exhibition Center in preparation for the launch of the Taiwan International Boat Show, May 2. Taiwan's first international boat show, will exhibit 60 boats with a combined market value of NT$7 billion (US$233 million) starting May 8. The vessel was built by the Horizon Group, the leading Taiwan-based luxury yacht builder and the only Asian company among the top 10 brands of the global luxury yacht market.
The show will provide an exceptional opportunity for visitors to see various yachts, either at sea from a ferry or by purchasing tickets to enter the indoor exhibition center, Kaohsiung Marine Bureau director Lai Jui-lung said. According to a report carried in the Financial Times last July, Taiwan overtook Germany to become the world's sixth-largest yachtmaker, yet sales are much lower than before the 2008 financial crisis. Most of the world's top yacht makers capitalize on the fact that they are European by trading on their nations' famous histories in seafaring and design, however, the Financial Times quoted a market research firm as saying that Taiwanese boat builders have seen their reputations improve over time. The four-day Taiwan International Boat Show is one of just three luxury yacht shows that are exhibited indoors, along with Boot Dusseldorf and the Genoa International Boat Show, according to Chuang Ming-liao, a board member of the Taiwan Yacht Industry Association. The annual three day event, which is organised by Jersey Marinas on behalf of Ports of Jersey regularly attracts in excess of 30,000 visitors over the weekend and is the largest free-entry event in the Channel Islands and enjoyed not only by the Islanda€™s large boating community but residents and visitors alike.
Although the event has grown in size and popularity since those early days our commitment to support and promote Jerseya€™s valuable marine leisure industry has never waived and remains as strong as ever.
RYA is sponsoring "Push the Boat Out", a National Weekend of sailing and windsurfing with open days across the land.

The biggest sailing competition ever in Bulgaria, happened in Bourgas Bay over the last five days. It covers not just the ship itself, but also all related building materials and furnishings, even when these have yet to be installed.
Depending on the manner of construction, several production facilities can be grouped together under one policy.
The programs focus on hands-on training in traditional and modern boat construction, repair, and mechanical system maintenance. Small boat building can be a lonely profession, which makes the annual Days of Croatian Small Boat Building a popular event among exhibitors, not only for the chance to sell their work, but also for the camaraderie with boat building colleagues.
During the event, there was time for an interview with Danni Matijaca, one of the event organisers and PR manager.
Our boat show only showcases boats built in Croatia, so the number of exhibitors is limited from the start.
We knew Croatia had over 80 small boat builders back then, but only a handful of them exhibited regularly. What are the challenges of the small boat builder in the modern era, particularly after EU entry? It may seem hard to believe, but most of the legislation, strategies, proposals only include large shipyards and small boat builders are never mentioned.
When we asked the Ministry how that was possible, they gave us an answer that the needs of the small boat builders were met in the electro and mechanical sections of this strategy.
There are no more customs, so materials are somewhat cheaper; however, without a clear strategy and a joint approach, it is going to be difficult to make an impact. They have been described as having a classic look above the waterline while having a modern appendage package with a deep lead bulb with wings and a trim tab to provide exceptional upwind performance.

That's up from roughly 92,000 jobs in the area in 2010, the association said in an October report. Thomson was right beside the furling drum when the pin sheared watching in dismay as the mast hinged backwards, carrying the sails with it and breaking as it landed. The association lost a quarter of its members in the recession and key yacht clubs are still in choppy financial waters.


That rule was something lacking on a now scrapped 2020 vision document suba€“titled a€?grow the sport, grow the membership, grow the organisationa€™. It saves them money and helps propagate our fine art heritage on the internet to many who might not see it elsewhere.
From superyacht builders and yachting lifestyle accessories to brokers and dealers of superyachts, multihulls, day cruisers and sportfishers, a wide variety of companies have already committed to returning again in 2015.
The A US coastguard investigation into the cause is ongoing and the usual preventitive measures A have commenced to keep the diesel in A the tanks and out of the sea. Our latest research led us to abandon traditional hosting services and move into Cloud Hosting.
With so many servers carrying the load, even with our large number of sites, we never have to worry about increasing the number of yacht listings, or sudden increase in traffic again. What that means is, you don't have to search the web for your package, then download it, then install it, then set it up.
There were vessels and gear of every shape and size including 40 yachts, sailboats and power-driven boats on display in the column-free North Halls.

Production at yards in Taiwan reached just US$148 million in 2012, down from US$357 million in 2008. Staging such an event of this scale requires dedication and commitment by all parties involved and we are delighted with the continuing support and enthusiasm for the show, not only with our local business partners and exhibitors but by an ever-increasing number from across the British Isles, Guernsey and France. It is an independent corporation incorporated under the laws of New York and is a separate and distinct entity from any entity of the Pantaenius Group. Graduates will have the skills needed to work for companies in boat building, boat repair or woodworking. The sector got whacked, as one boat builder describes it, when the bottom fell out of the economy in 2008. However, the atmosphere during the Croatian boat building days is very similar to a big family gathering. We started talking to all of them and came to the conclusion that we really should give them their own stage, a place where they would not be overshadowed by glitzy international yacht brands, and a place where everyone can see their products and try them.
It's as if we've forgotten that all our large shipyards were built on the age long tradition of old craftsmen and „kalafati“.
We are still trying to figure out how the two are connected but I'll let the experts dwell on that one. Our boats receive quality and design awards every year, AD Boats with their Salona range of sail boats, Elan's recent achievement with their latest model, Adriatic Work Boats and Colnago are renowned for the quality of their aluminium boats so there is no doubt our boats can compete with international brands.
It is primarily used for very high value payments and is used by corporates who make large numbers of these payments but it can be used by individuals too, although there is normally a charge of A?25 to A?30. Solicitors will useA CHAPSA payments to transfer the purchase price of a house between the bank accounts of those involved.

Minimal administration (no monthly reporting necessary)Classic Business InsuranceOur business liability insurance is tailored to your needs. In the last 6 years we've gotten to know all the boat builders, they finally got to know each other by name and not only by their boat model (it may sound strange, but most of them didn't really know much about each other back in 2009), and most importantly, many of them started joint ventures after they met at the expo. Six months later, after consultations with most boat builders and great cooperation with Le Meridien Lav, we opened our first edition, with 15 producers and around 30 boats. Ita€™s also sometimes used by people buying or selling a high-value item, such as a car, when they need a secure, urgent, same-day guaranteed payment. Damage to your customers’ yachts is included in the cover under special clauses, whether you are working on them or taking them for trial runs. Now, six years later, most of them are still with us with new models, and I am especially proud to see new, young boat builders with plenty of enthusiasm and great boats which can compete with any foreign product available. If you give incorrect information and the payment goes astray your bank must make a€?reasonable effortsa€™ to trace the transaction but may charge for doing so. In addition to customary property insurance, we also offer individualised solutions with our combined boom overload and transportation insurance.
Even if they don't have a boat to exhibit, they come from all over Croatia to catch up with their mates.

His grandfather started the company in Barrington, it moved to Warren, then Thurston opened this facility back in the late 80's. Can't blame him, the job's got great perks. "Sometimes we have to bring them to the Carribean and use them for a week down there," he said of the travel he does for the job. Workers craft patterns on the computer, others cut those pieces on a huge cutting machine, and then sew the pieces together on the factory floor. And when I say 'on the factory floor' the pieces are literally on the floor. "When we built this building we knew that we wanted to have the sewing machines sunk in the floor," said Thurston.
Quantum Sails held steady during the recession  not losing businesses but not gaining any either. But after the bottom fell out in 2008, Ben Hall had a year when business was half of the year before. “It was like a precipitous drop off, it didn’t happen gradually, it was like falling off a cliff," said Hall. Masts used to be made of aluminum but Hall Spars and Rigging was one of the first to make them out of lighter carbon fiber.
But after cutting his Bristol staff in half, and walking away from multi-million dollar projects that wouldn’t have turned a penny in profit, Hall moved away from strictly making boat masts and now lands jobs for architecture and military projects.
Goetz Composites Eric Goetz walks through the large warehouse of Goetz Composites checking in on a co-worker buffing the surface of a mold for a boat part. Goetz works in carbon fiber. Like Ben Hall at Hall Spars and Rigging, Goetz has branched out into architecture and projects for New York City’s department of transportation. And even though the business, Goetz Composites, bears his name, he lost it in the recession. Bristol's Boat Building Industry Wendy Mackie of the Rhode Island Marine Trade Association says the recession wiped out half of the boat building industry. The biggest gains, she says, are in composite technology, working in fiber glass or carbon fibers like what Goetz deals in. Because of companies like Goetz, Halls Spars, and Quantom Sails, Mackie said Bristol has an edge in this recovering sector by turning the town into a virtual boat building company "They're able to go from one place to another inside of a day, see all of the different components of the boat that need to come together to make that custom boat," said Mackie. When asked if there will ever be a time when Rhode Islanders link Bristol to boat building the same way they link Bristol to the July 4th parade Mackie said, “Yes.
