Yamaha Marine Endorses Ocean Debris Cleanup Bill

Yamaha Marine Group today announced its endorsement of S. 756, the bipartisan Save Our Seas Act, which was introduced in the U.S. Senate by Senators Dan Sullivan (R-AK), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), and Cory Booker (D-NJ.) The bill aims to strengthen research and international coordination of anti-debris efforts to protect America’s oceans, coastlines, and inland waterways. In addition to reauthorizing the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA®) Marine Debris Program, the bill allows for additional funding to assist with debris cleanup, and encourages the executive branch to engage with the nations responsible for the majority of marine debris.

Yamaha’s Helm Master Takes Guesswork, Stress Out of Docking

Seasoned boaters know all too well the nuances of maneuvering a big boat in tight spaces. Running longer distances, handling big waves, and more room and storage for gear and passengers are advantages of a big boat. What’s not so great about boats powered by multiple outboards is when it comes time to return to the dock. Maneuvering the big boat into tight spaces, and into waves and current, takes years of experience. Unless you are a seasoned boat captain that is not an option, at least for the average boater.

Go Skiing With Tidewater

Thumbs up. Thumbs down. Those hand gestures mean more than acknowledging that you like something. In skiing terms, the thumbs up gesture means the skier wants boat speed to increase. Back off the throttle when thumbs go down. Those are just two of the seven skier hand signals that are fundamentals of learning the original powerboat watersport.
