The Gere Collection, on long-term loan to the National Gallery, © Private collection 2000. This small study shows a cluttered boat-builder's yard in which casks, baskets, boards, ropes, levers and pulleys appear to be strewn about haphazardly.
Danby's oil sketches are direct and immediate records of local sights that caught his eye, quite different from the elegantly composed poetical landscapes and biblical subjects on which his contemporary reputation was based. The launch represents the culmination of the first phase of a two-year pilot project to develop the DPLA's technical infrastructure and establish a collaborative network of partners that view the site as a valuable global access point to their digital collections.
The new DPLA site includes digital collections held by a variety of institutions, from national research libraries to local historical societies. Over 1.2 million items from the National Archives, including the work of renowned Civil War photographer Mathew Brady, founding documents of the United States, and posters distributed during World War II. High-resolution images of artworks drawn from the Walters Art Museum, the Dallas Museum of Art, the Indianapolis Museum of Art, and Yale University. Manuscripts, maps, and illustrations that shed light on Colonial America, the American Revolution, and the early history of the United States.
Extensive collections relevant to the history of science, including over 111,000 volumes from the Biodiversity Heritage Library and some of the earliest photographs taken of the moon. Created in 1965 as an independent federal agency, the National Endowment for the Humanities supports research and learning in history, literature, philosophy, and other areas of the humanities by funding selected, peer-reviewed proposals from around the nation. Be recognized for your leadership in your school and community plus learn new life skills, such as interviewing and public speaking, to take you to the next level. Distinguished Young Women is a national scholarship program that inspires high school girls to develop their full, individual potential through a fun, transformative experience that culminates in a celebratory showcase of their accomplishments. Founded in 1943, ABBRA serves as an advocate for boatyards, boat service and repairers and boat builders.
We are first and foremost a recreational marine industry trade association and national network of marine service and repair companies dedicated to professional development, training, education and the sharing of knowledge in the search for solutions to common problems.
Soon boats will be launched, kids will be swimming, sailing programs will start, and marinas will be in full operation.
Pamela Lendzion, Executive Director of the American Boat Builders and Repairers Association and Susan Swanton, Executive Director of the Maine Marine Trades Association joined a group of colleagues in Washington DC to discuss their proposals designed to remove barriers to work-based learning for small businesses in the recreational marine industry.
The SABBEX Code also has a developmental focus designed to encourage companies to achieve international best practice. Companies are audited in matters including warranty procedure, owners’ manuals, customer service and international specifications. It should be noted the term ‘accredited’ does not imply any guarantee of performance on the part of SABBEX. Should a member fail to comply with the minimum standards, the council can suspend or terminate membership, but recourse will be in terms of the contract between the client and builder.
All Boat builders are required to undergo inspection and certification by the national authority, the South African Maritime Safety Authority (SAMSA) for local boat registrations. Standards compliance among the small vessel builders for the local market is further encouraged with the recent introduction of the Marine Industry Association of South Africa’s (MIASA) Builders Plate.
About usThe South African Boatbuilders Export Council, SABBEX, is a national export council.
The council is a major contributor to establishing South Africa as a globally competitive boatbuilding export country, with sustainable export growth within the dti framework.
The National Park Service has taken delivery of its newest boat, Sea Ranger II, built by Modutech Marine Inc. Centek Industries is observing the sale of its 250,000th water lift muffler since the company’s founding in 1962. The Centek Vernalift muffler was originally manufactured for small auxiliary propulsion engines installed near or below the water line in sailboats. Willard Marine, a 56-year-old builder of composite and aluminum boats, is supplying a seven-meter Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat (RIB) for Na Pali Coast Hanalei Tours in Hawaii. The aluminum-hull boat, which is being customized to meet the requirements specified by the tour operator, will be used for snorkeling and exploring sea caves, secluded beaches and ancient Hawaiian sites on the North Shore of Oahu. Alnmaritec, an aluminum boat builder based in Northumberland, UK, recently announced the delivery of a new general purpose line handling and harbor support work boat to Western Australia. The sale at the Dubai Boat Show of the Samawy Marine Boat Manufacturing Company's Samawy 44, marks a first for a Emerati builder who cares enough about preserving the marine environment to ensure that the new boat is eco-friendly.
Owners, designers, builders and the crew can collaborate in a meaningful way to ensure that the delivered product meets everyone’s expectations.
We have all gone aboard or below decks on vessels and looked around with a myriad of instantaneous questions forming in our minds as to why the builder would construct a vessel in such a convoluted fashion. Up to 500 migrants might have drowned in the Mediterranean last week when human traffickers crammed people onto an already overcrowded ship, causing it to sink, the U.N.
An Italian merchant ship rescued 26 migrants off the coast of Libya in rough seas and others were feared missing, the Coast Guard said on Saturday.
About 100 Chinese fishing boats have been detected encroaching in Malaysia's waters in the disputed South China Sea, Malaysia's state news agency and a coastguard official said on Friday. The ship, carrying more than 100,000 litres of fuel, was stopped near the northern maritime border last week. Europort has become the official and exclusive international partner of IRANIMEX, the leading maritime & offshore exhibition in Iran.

Australia will speed up plans to build more naval vessels in domestic shipyards, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said on Monday, making an announcement that could find favour with voters just weeks ahead of a likely federal election.
The opening day of the METS 2015 in Amsterdam saw Huisman Etech Experts, the company specializing in building all e-related installations aboard luxury vessels, sign an agreement with Visedo Marine to deliver all e-drives and inverters for the all-new motor yacht NOVA (project name), representing the first Heesen hybrid. The ground-breaking concept of the new Hybrid solution allows the captain to choose from four different propulsion modes.
Quiet cruising mode allows NOVA to cruise at a speed up to 9 knots, and is perfect for comfortable operating inside the port or smooth sailing along the coast. In diesel cruising mode the generators deliver the power for the hotel and the MTU engines speed up NOVA up to 16 knots. Boost mode, just like a real Formula 1 car, allows the captain to use the boost button to add the e-power drives for extra speed. The new developed system allows a very low consumption in combination with comfort, but still provides the high speeds Heesen is known for worldwide. In the development stage Huisman Etech Experts and Heesen found Visedo to achieve high performance coupled with less volume used by equipment.
The imposing 91m super yacht LADY LARA (Project Orchid) was spotted by Peter Eijking in Amsterdam on November 25, 2015.
The exterior as well as interior design of luxury mega yacht LADY LARA (Project Orchid) comes from Reymond Langton, who designed this striking vessel around creating a harmonious balance. Magnificently designed by Reymond Langton, luxury motor yacht LADY LARA (Project ORCHID) boasts feminine beauty and elegance, thanks to her sweeping curves and elegant proportions. The winners of the inaugural Boat Builders Awards 2015 were unveiled during a gala dinner in the National Maritime Museum in Amsterdam on the second day of the METSTRADE show. In addition to the Lifetime Achievement Award, there were five other categories of winners at the Boat Builder Awards for Business Achievement. Monte Carlo Yachts received the Innovation in a Production Process award for its game-changing modular production technique. Dominator has become winner of the Retail Marketing Award for its Ilumen Virtual Reality system. Galeon Yachts and the ‘beach mode’ that according to judges brought a little bit of big boat functionality and superyacht chic to its new 500 Fly yacht, was named winner of the Innovative On-Board Design Solution. Sanlorenzo 106 Hybrid yacht has been fitted with a hybrid technology-based power and propulsion system, delivered by Dutch power and propulsion specialist WhisperPower. The main objective of the super yacht Sanlorenzo 106 Hybrid project was to provide the vessel with a speed of 9 knots using the electric motors whereby the vessel can cover large distances quietly and above all economically as well as being able to enter bays. A second objective was to make luxury yacht Sanlorenzo 106 Hybrid  “quiet” overnight whilst still providing maximum comfort.
Glasshape will be attending the world’s largest marine equipment trade show, METSTRADE, introducing its DuraShield superyacht glass, chosen by the world’s finest private and charter yachts and engineered as an answer to delamination in windscreens and windows. Designed specifically to address delamination issues, a unique, high-performance interlayer developed by Glasshape is incorporated into the manufacturing process. An amazing number of the world’s finest private and charter yachts feature the Glasshape products, including the impressive glass areas on such outstanding vessels as Khalilah, Delta superyacht Albatross and McMullen&Wing expedition charter yacht Big Fish. DuraShield marine is used for pilot houses and, when used in conjunction with Glasshape’s product Ezone, eliminates the need for double glazing, resulting in remarkable weight savings. The other boat is a Crystal class sloop designed by Alan Buchanan that would later be produced by Offshore Yachts Ltd as the Halcyon 23.
In the foreground is a Crystal class and behind is a Diamond class yacht, both Alan Buchanan designs based on GRP hulls.
The yacht on the left is a Brabant class sloop and the smaller boat to the rear is a Crystal class, both designed by Alan Buchanan. While the National Boat Show began in 1954 at Olympia, London, the levels of public interest soon demanded a larger venue and in 1957 the show moved to Earl’s Court. The show ran from December 30th 1959 to January 9th 1960 and was organised by the Ship and Boat Builders’ National Federation and sponsored by the Daily Express.
The second National Boat Show, like the first, was held at the Empire Hall, Olympia, London.
Up until the Second World War, sailing was very much a sport for the rich, but in the post-war years, with the launch of more affordable boats, sailing became accessible to the middle classes and so there was demand for a show which could satisfy this trend. Thanks to Clea Rawinsky and Jo Barker from the Royal Burnham Yacht Club and Bill Davies for helping to piece together the history of this picture. Sunlight glints off surfaces, while quick touches of pale colour capture the humid atmosphere of a waterside site.
In the last month, seven major institutions--the National Archives and Records Administration, the Smithsonian Institution, ARTstor, the New York Public Library, the Biodiversity Heritage Library, the University of Virginia, and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign--have expressed their support for the project and announced that they will make portions of their rich digital collections available through the DPLA portal. Distinguished Young Women strives to give every young woman the opportunity to further her education and prepare for a successful future. With this in mind, now is a good time to increase your knowledge of Electric Shock Drowning (ESD).
Financing for the project has been secured through the Export-Import Bank and all guarantees have been obtained. The work will be performed at Friede Goldman Newfoundland's Cow Head Offshore fabrication facility in Newfoundland, Canada.


In the early 1970’s the Vernalift product line was expanded to include larger engines and today Vernalift mufflers are the lift muffler of choice by leading boat builders for engines from five to 2500 horsepower. Depending on the mode, the diesel engines, the main generators or the e-generators take a different role.
In this mode the generators for the hotel are switched off, with only the MTU motors running. The components used are fitted into the custom-build cabinets and manifolds manufactured by Huisman. Recently delivered by Lurssen, the brand new motor yacht LADY LARA has already left Amsterdam.
She boasts a feminine elegance when viewed at a distance, thanks to her sweeping curves and elegant proportions that allow her masculine details to emerge.
This is the second port of call for the breath-taking superyacht LADY LARA, following her maiden voyage to Norway. Paolo Vitelli, founder and chairman of Azimut Benetti, has been honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award. This enables semi-customised yachts to be built up to 50% more quickly on a full scale production line. The judges praised the technology as a genuine innovation, the like of which has not been seen before in the maritime business. Karnic was recognised in the Innovation in a production process category for its Smart Production Controller.
The 32m Sanlorenzo 106 Hybrid superyacht represents the first vessel to feature WhisperPower’s latest technology. More specifically, they provide electricity for two 130 kW electric motors, which are installed in the drivetrain between the two MTU 2000 kW main engines and the propeller and are used for electric sail. This can result in a saving of many tens of thousands to more than a hundred thousand Euros per season.
As the onboard power supply was set up as three-phase 400 volt, WhisperPower developed a 10 kW three-phase inverter that enabled the air conditioning units, refrigerators, freezers etc to continue to run.
This was the product of choice for such striking vessels as Palmer Johnson motor yacht KHALILAH, boasting the largest windows that have ever been installed on a superyacht built in North America.
Overcoming the delamination typically seen in marine windshields and windows, DuraShield Marine retains clarity and high levels of light transmission.
Most laminates react when exposed to moisture or adhesives which, over a short period of time, leads to delamination. On Invictus yacht by Delta Marine – the vessel on which Glasshape introduced Ezone to the marine industry – the build team was able to save over one tonne of weight in glass.
These institutions join six other state and regional digital libraries that have also contributed digital materials to the project in partnership with local institutions. Construction for the vessels is anticipated to begin during the second quarter at the company's Moss Point Marine shipyard in Escatawpa, MS and delivery is slated for the fourth quarter of 2001. The project will be designed by the FGH Engineered Products Group's AmClyde division and manufactured at the group's BLM Offshore facility in Nantes, France. The Pilot Boat, measuring 22 m long, is an all welded aluminum monohull of significant deadrise with a double chine. She is expected to enjoy the winter season in Florida, the Bahamas and The Eastern Caribbean islands.
Her sharp lines define her strong, sculpted surfaces, showing the vessel’s vast deck space.
From Amsterdam, LADY LARA is expected to cross the Atlantic to enjoy the sunny weather in Florida, the Bahamas and The Eastern Caribbean islands in the winter season. This results in a sharp contrast with highlights as well as shadows that deliver the superstructure a unique form that slightly changes in different lights as the sun moves across the sky. Fairline Boats and Falcon were mentioned for the engineering feat of creating frameless windows that can be fitted to any hull form. As soon as the MTUs are switched on, the electric engines take over the running of the hotel load from the generator.
The show will open its doors in Amsterdam RAI today, on November 17, and will run until Thursday, November 19, 2015. That delamination not only looks unsightly, but presents major concerns in terms of visibility and structural integrity. Mastervolt’s CZone digital control and monitoring network was also commended by the judges. As a backup, two 15 kW Genverters have been installed together with several DC PowerCube charge modules that quickly and completely charge the batteries either when shore power is available or via the Genverters. All components, including the non-WhisperPower products, are connected via a central CAN bus system.
