El buque de bandera española “Haugesund Knutsen” (IMO 9918767) se encuentra en la antesala de su entrega oficial, pendiente de la finalización de sus pruebas de mar y certificación de equipos. Construido en Astilleros Armón Gijón, será dedicado al suministro de gas natural licuado en el puerto de Barcelona y está previsto que entre en servicio en noviembre próximo.

“El proceso eruptivo, en estos momentos, está en una situación de estabilidad y con un ligero descenso de la sismicidad. En la actualidad existe una única colada que discurre fluidamente desde el cono hasta el mar, además se confirma la existencia de un túnel lávico que permite una conexión directa entre el centro emisor y el mar, lo que reduce las probabilidades de ensanche de esta colada”, informa el comité director del PEVOLCA, de acuerdo con los últimos datos facilitados por el comité científico.

La erupción fisural continúa mostrando un…

We typically steer clear of flavored or infused rums but when we passed a pineapple-infused rum made by Plantation, we knew we had to try it. Alexandre Gabriel, the man behind Plantation, produces rums all over the world using local ingredients. Any Plantation rum we have tried has not let us down so why would we expect anything different here?

Pineapple rum was the drink of choice in 19th century England but like most good things, the love affair came to an end. However, if you’re a fan of Charles Dickens’ Pickwick Papers you know that pineapple rum was the drink of choice by “…

Waves of stinky sargassum, a floating brown seaweed, have been washing up on Caribbean beaches for over a decade. In hopes of turning this natural trash into a treasure, sargassum has found use in agriculture to improve crop production organically. However, a June released report of a joint study between the World Wildlife Fund-Mexico and STINAPA Bonaire, showed vegetables grown in soil fertilized with sargassum had higher levels of arsenic and cadmium. These heavy metals can be toxic to humans and animals.

Whichever of the above you prefer, I agree with you. Both of the other vessel types are for idiots, plain and simple. Take monohullers, for example. Multihullers call monohulls monomarans—because of the notorious debilitating psychological condition of their skippers known as ‘pathological hull envy.’ Sad, right?  I mean, seriously, what else is intentionally made heavy other than steamrollers and traditional sailboats… both of which can barely get out of their own way in terms of speed. My monohull is so slow I have to factor in continental drift on ocean passages—because the continents…

Trinidad is arguably the second most famous Carnival in the world after the one in Rio and is an amazing time. But Trinidad has so much more to offer even if you come a different time of year than Carnival. 

When you come by boat you will almost certainly have your boat in Chaguaramas, since for such a large and wonderful island there are surprisingly few places to anchor. Charguaramas is the former site of the largest US Naval Base outside of the US and was active from World War 2 until 1963. Now it houses half a dozen or more boat yards and repair facilities and is a great place…

Once upon a time I used to sell boats as a yacht broker . Many of the lower priced boats had been neglected and parked somewhere in the Caribbean for some time. Whether the boats got bought or not often did not connect with their quality but with their smell and odor. Once you had a boat where there had been mold and odor compounded with being “cooked “ for some years without ventilation, the experience of going down below was so deeply unsatisfying that sales at any reasonable price was unlikely.  A low quality sanitation hose would accelerate the odor challenge even further until you…

Living a Robinson Crusoe life in luxury on your own private tropical island is the stuff of daydreams and lifestyles of the rich and famous. Yet, it’s possible. First, you just have to be on the lookout for a uninhabited island for sale. Then know what do to with it realistically.

“The main reasons why islands come onto the market are usually associated with the 3D’s – debt, divorce, or death. Sometimes, people just like a change of scenery and move to another area,” says Farhad Vladi, owner of Hamburg, Germany-headquartered Vladi Private Islands, with offices in Canada and New…
