    How to Sail – SH Pontoon Launch: Part 4 of 4: Recovery Common Mistakes & Key Learning Points

    November 15, 2019


    Common mistakes are Stepping on the side tanks to step ashore,
    you may end up in the water. Unsuitable securing knot, the boat may untie
    itself. Coming ashore on the wrong side is difficult
    and can be dangerous. Key learning points for recovery Judge where the wind is blowing from as this
    affects the direction that you should approach the pontoon. Approach the pontoon from a downwind direction. Approach from a close reach. Whatever the wind direction it’s vital to
    approach slowly controlling your speed by flapping the sail. Turn deliberately into the no go zone to stop. Go round again if you are not correctly positioned
    or going too fast.

    How to Sail – 2H Pontoon Launch – Part 2 of 4: Launching common mistakes & key learning points

    November 6, 2019


    Common mistakes Tying the boat to the pontoon broadside to
    the wind, this will make it difficult to hoist the sails as the boat won’t be lying head
    to wind. Tying an unsuitable knot. The boat could either
    break free and float away, or the knot could be difficult to untie. Key learning points for launching Understand where the wind is blowing from,
    and how that affects where you need to position your boat on the pontoon. Only use the downwind or leeward side of the
    pontoon. Look out for slip or trip hazards on the slipway
    prior to launching. Secure the boat to the pontoon itself with
    a suitable knot. Try to be as close as possible to the end
    of the pontoon. When manoeuvring your boat be careful not
    to trap your fingers between the side of the boat and the pontoon. When stepping into the boat make sure you
    are as close as you can be to the centreline. Never step on the side tanks as the boat could
    tip over. Sail away from the pontoon on a close reach
    point of sailing.

    Boats For Sale and Repair in New York at Mahopac Marine – Tahoe Pontoon – Stingray ORIGINAL

    November 5, 2019


    Hi. I’m Charlie Melchner, Jr. from Mahopac
    Marina. We’ve been selling and servicing boats in the marine industry and in the community
    for over 40 years. I was here one day helping a friend get his
    boat started and the fellow that owned the marina at the time asked me if I wanted a
    job. I said no, that I was quite busy, I had just started a small trucking company, and
    I walked away. I came back a couple of months later and I was selling one of my small trucks
    that I had, and the fellow asked me again if I was interested in the marina or working
    there, and I said no. He said to me, “I’ll tell you what. I’ll buy your pickup truck
    if you buy my marina,” and believe it or not, that’s how I got into the boat business. I’ve been in the boating business, you could
    say, my whole life because my parents bought the marina when I was very young. Until I
    was about eight years old, we lived above the marina. I tell people that daycare for
    me when my mom was working and my dad was working was a life jacket, and I was in the
    marina with my father. The marina atmosphere is very family-friendly,
    and our staff and everybody that’s here feel like family. Our customers, generally most
    of them become our friends. Our specialty is taking a brand-new person when they walk
    through that door and get them fitted in what’s good for them and their family, and figure
    out what their needs are, how often they’re going to be boating, and where they’re going
    to be boating. From there we narrow it down to the style of boat they like. The great part about it is when you buy the
    boat, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. With us, we take the extra mile where when
    you come down for the first time we get you started and running in the boat, help you
    get out there and do it. We walk you through it until you’re comfortable, where we can
    say and you can say, “I’m ready to go for a ride with my family. I don’t need anybody
    today, but I’m very comfortable to know that you’re at the other end of that phone just
    a couple minutes away if I do have a question or I need something.” We encourage people buying a new boat from
    us to stay with us for a period of time as our guest, so that we can make sure they’re
    comfortable when they’re out there, that they know what to be prepared for. Mahopac Marina is your one-stop shop. We do
    every aspect of boating, whether you have a jet ski or a 40-footer or a 6-footer. We
    work on three horsepower motors, electric motors, and we work on big 1000 horsepower
    engines. We work on just about everything. We’ve got factory-trained technicians on all
    the different stuff. We have a state-of-the-art repair facility which most people don’t know
    exists. We warehouse a couple hundred boats and we have the ability to work year round
    in a controlled environment so that your job comes out the best it possibly can all the
    time. We sell and service boats all around the country
    and even into Europe and Canada. We have people that travel hours and hours and some thousands
    of miles just to do business with us, because of the reputation we’ve put forth with how
    we do business. We can handle every part of it and they can say that you come down, you
    put the keys in, you run and drive your boat, and that’s all you have to do. We take care
    of the details for you. That’s probably one of the most significant things we can say. It’s more than just boating. We create a lifestyle.
    We show you how you can change your life and you can have your family be involved. We offer
    everything to make you feel at home and like you’re part of the family right here at the
    marina. I’ve had some customers here for 46 years.
    How great is that? It’s a generational thing, and we’re proud
    to say that when you call Mahopac Marina, there’s always a Charlie. I have a young son,
    Charlie, and God willing, if everything goes right I hope that someday he’ll be answering
    the phone and running the marina as well. At this point, over 40 years, and I believe
    the best is yet to come. We’re just getting going.

    2018 Sunchaser 8523 Eclipse Fish

    October 18, 2019


    hey I’m mark romanek if you got a few
    minutes hang out with me because we’re gonna do a test ride video on this
    Sunchaser 85 23 Eclipse fish if you’re a family man and you’re loved to fish
    you’re looking at your new ride the 85 23 Eclipse fish is 23 foot 10 inches
    long down the center line as a beam of 102 inches the maximum horsepower
    capacity 150 points well we’re gonna start our conversation right here at the
    captain’s helm and it is a plush helm indeed the seat I’m sitting on swivels
    of course got arm rests actually tilts backwards as well so very very
    comfortable as I reach forward here and I look at the steering wheel it’s got
    tilt steering wheel as well so now I can adjust the steering wheel for driving or
    to tilt it up if I want to get out of here make it a little bit easier for me
    to get it out of the console when I look in front of me the set of gauges here is
    impressive now all the gauges are right there I can see when all the toggle
    switches are easy to access and of course because this is a pontoon it’s
    got some extra features like for example floor lighting and it’s got dock
    lighting as well as navigation lighting underneath the console is all hollow
    under there and so there’s a door that accesses in there and it gives you a
    great storage capability so you can put all kinds of bulky items in there
    perfect place to put things like life jackets throw cushions that type of
    stuff is gonna fit in there really really nicely there are two drink cup
    holders there’s also an am/fm radio and also an mp3 port if you want to play
    your own custom tunes and on top of all that there’s a 12-volt accessory
    switched it’s perfect for charging your cell phone or your tablet all in all
    this console’s got everything you could possibly want in the pontoon boat or a
    fishing boat one of the things that’s special about a pontoon boat is all the
    space that it provides you for example if you’re a fisherman and you’re looking
    to have places to store your gear you’re not gonna find a better place than a
    pontoon boat there are three separate high pack loungers on this boat and
    underneath each of them as dry storage there’s an enormous amount of room under
    there you can store literally any kind of fishing tackle you’d ever want to
    store plus all your personal items these high back loungers give a luxury look
    and feel to this boat we already talked about the fact that there’s a lot of
    storage underneath the seats what we haven’t talked about is this boat has
    comfortable seating for up to 12 adults you know another nice feature of this
    boat is the privacy curtain gives you a perfect place to be able to change from
    your fishing clothes into your water recreation clothes and when you’re done
    using it all you have to do is fold it up and it slides neatly underneath the
    seat we’re on the bow of the boat now and this is primarily a lounging area an
    area where you use the table here of course for snacks or maybe the for
    beverages but there’s also fishing opportunities available up here as well
    there’s a gate in the front and you open that gate and the bow is wide enough
    that two people can stand up there and cast to their heart’s content we’ve
    moved to the rear of the boat there’s some important features here we need to
    talk about for example the first thing that jumps out at you is the center
    console style live well it’s a flat surface it’s a 30 gallon aerated live
    well and also has a measuring tape on the top there’s this is perfect for
    measuring your catch it’s also a couple drink cup holders up here and there are
    two flush mount rod holders as well for trolling plus these vertical rod holders
    enough for four for keeping your rod at ready anytime you’re ready to go fishing
    of course there’s two captains seats here I’m sitting in one of them they’re
    beautiful comfortable this is a great place to fish from but if you want there
    are also two gates in the back one on either side you can open those gates and
    you can step out onto the back platform and you can cast out there as well so
    there’s a lot of fishing opportunities in the back of this boat we talked a
    little bit about the vertical rod storage on the live well but there’s
    additional rod storage here it’s lockable this box when you open it up
    has a space for four additional rods the beauty of that is you can lock those
    rods up when you’re not fishing and it’s gonna be out of sight and out of mind
    also it’s going to be secured for when you’re doing other things like water
    recreation one more feature about the 85 23 Eclipse fish look at this beautiful
    canopy on those hot summer days it’s gonna be a great place to get out of the
    Sun if you’re interested in knowing more about this boat I recommend going to
    Sunchaserboats.com or better yet go online look up your closest retailer and
    go find a dealer that’s got one in stock
