8 ALLATSEA.NET SEPTEMBER 2013 Editors Log In September, the Editors Log touched on the subject of designated anchorages and how some freedom-loving sailors have taken exception to them, saying they should be allowed to drop their hook anywhere. In this edition, Captain Fatty Goodlander turns his critical eye on the same problem and his revelations are shocking. Fatty describes how cruisers are being gouged by unscrupulous of“cials, semiof“cials and downright conmen. I have to admit that during my time cruising various parts of our watery world, I have been conned a few times. Nothing too serious, mind you, and most instances were quite humorous. The “rst one I fell for was the yourwife-bought-some-fish-and-she-says-you-will-pay-me scam. This ones pretty straight forward. A guy saw us come ashore in the dinghy and watched as my wife headed in one direction with her shopping bags while I popped into the chandlery. On leaving the chandlery I headed to the nearest bar to await my wifes return, the smiling villain appeared in front off me saying he had sold some “sh to my lovely wife, who didnt quite have enough money to pay him, and that I would take care of it. And yes, I fell for it and later learned that I was the third cruiser to do so that week. The second scam was the Im-out-of-gas-and-left-mywallet-at-home-and-if-you-give-me-some-money-Ill-“ll-updrive-to-my-house-and-return-with-the-cash scam. Not only did I fall for it, I even gave the guy a fuel can. My all-time favorite was the do-you-remember-me? scam. Thats that the opening line of the shakedown. The same individual pulled this on me at least six times. The “rst time, being polite, I said Er ƒ yes. I think so, How you doing?Ž Thats when he gave me the spiel but I refused to part with any money and he went away empty handed. The next “ve times he stopped me on the waterfront, I beat him to it by saying, Hi, do you remember me?Ž He thought this was hilarious. I got to know him so well I eventually asked him why he scammed the cruisers for a living. Its so easy,Ž he laughed, theyre nice, rich, trusting and polite.Ž Hes lucky he never met Capn Fatty. Gary E. Brown, Editor In this edition, Kathy Bohanan Enzerink takes an in-depth look at one of North Americas most successful boat builders, Grady-White. There is always banter between the wind and string brigade and power-boaters, yet powerboating is growing in popularity throughout the Caribbean and All At Sea is delighted to see that happen. The whole point of leisure boating is to get people out on the water and sail-boating can be a time consuming pastime. This is where power boats come into their own. At the turn of a key you are off and running, places to go, things to see, and all at a pace that suites the demands of the modern world. Designers of small powerboats, like GradyWhite, bring speed, safety and comfort to vessels that are easy on the eye. Looking astern as a creamy wake unfurls is a joy. Many of todays small powerboats offer more than a day out. Thanks to innovative designs, roomy onboard accommodations attract the weekender and those looking to explore further a“eld in the knowledge that a comfortable nights sleep, a cold beer and a good meal are all part of the package. GO BOLDLY. GO POWER.See you on the water! The editor enjoys a spot of powerboating

16 ALLATSEA.NET SEPTEMBER 2013 NewsCARIBBEAN NEWSA BRIEF LOOK INTO THE HAPPENINGS OF OUR WORLD Windsur“ng Success for Curaao in Slalom World ChampionshipsALAATI, TURKEY … Windsurfer Jean Paul Da Silva De Goes brought more windsur“ng glory to the island of Curaao by returning home with the coveted title of IFCA U-15 World Champion 2013. The young windsurfer formed part of a fourman team that competed in the IFCA Junior, Youth & Masters Slalom World Championships in early July. Team members Jean Patrick Van Der Wolde (2011 World Champion U-17), Aron Etmon (2012 World Champion U-15) and Oscar Etmon completed the all-star line up. The pressure was relentless as 104 top competitors from 18 countries raced through the crystal-clear waters off the coast of Alaati, western Turkey. Sailors taking part in the Championships enjoyed “ve days of steady winds during which the race committee hosted 235 starts, eight eliminations and three discards, on each category for the “nal scores. Aron Etmon joined Da Silva De Goes on the podium having scored third place in the Junior U-17 category behind second place “nisher Jurgen Saragoza from the neighboring island of Bonaire. In the Junior category Oscar Etmon “nished in fourth place in the U-15. Although Jean Patrick Van Der Wolde failed to score a podium place he had a successful regatta, leading the ”eet home for a couple of races and scoring a good position among the group. For more information and full results, visit: http://ifca.internationalwindsur“ng.com/page0283v01.htmJolly Harbour Goes DeepANTIGUA … The marina at Jolly Harbour is in the process of dredging its channel to a depth of 15ft. In a press release, Jolly Harbour said the dredging is in anticipation of the upcoming season which could be the best in years, with “ve sailing rallies making landfall in the southeastern Caribbean by early 2014. The release also announced the opening of a new marina charter base with the arrival of Dream Yacht Charters. Saint Croix Yacht Club International RegattaThe St. Croix Yacht Club (SCYC) claim this years regatta will be the best ever thanks to a new race schedule. Acting on feedback from 2012 relating to the number of race days available, the regatta can now accommodate those who can only commit to two days of racing as well as those who want to experience the full three days. Changes include a one day event on Friday November 15th Flying the flag for Curaao at the IFCA Junior, Youth & Masters Slalom World Championships (from left): Aron Etmon, Jean Paul Da Silva De Goes, Oscar Etmon and Jean Patrick Van Der Wolde

18 ALLATSEA.NET SEPTEMBER 2013THE HORROR OF DESIGNATED ANCHORAGES BY CAPN FATTY GOODLANDERSailing Humor Every port authority in the world has a few sadists, and the meanest and cruelest of these maritime professionals are often put in charge of the Designated Anchorage for Yachts. Exactly why this is internationally so, I am not sure„but it is. Trust me. These peoples sole quali“cation: They know nothing about„ nor care about„those they contemptuously govern. In essence, they have a tiny bit of power, and their aim is to lord-it over their unfortunate subjects. They are over-grown school crossing guards, to the max. Power-freaks,Ž as we used to say back in the 60s. There is no international oversight on this Port Authority madness. Nobody cares how sea-going transients are treated. They are not anyones constituency. We yachties are, in essence, “sh-in-a-“nancial-barrel. Like any professional group, these yacht herders have aspirations. For instance, they get extra points if a sizable number of the pleasure craft are driven aground, pounded on rocks, and sunk. Ditto, if the marine environment is damaged. Double-ditto, if there are casualties! The “rst thing they do is, in deep consultation with experienced circumnavigators, determine the least desirable, most dangerous, and most uncomfortable place for a recreational craft to anchor„and designate that area the only place a yacht can moor, upon pain of death. Of course, this area must have (1) poor holding; (2) be far from town; (3) be exposed to adverse weather and (4) be subject to huge, constant commercial wakes. Even better, the designated anchorage area is to be so small that, if properly scoped (well-anchored, in a safe manner) only one or two boats can stay within its con“nes. Usually a few dozen skippers are required by law to use the Designated Anchorage„and are solely and completely Carolyn with Heebi, Prince of the Red Sea, and Sayeed


SEPTEMBER 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 19responsible for any and all damage incurred while so doing. Thus, you have no legal choice but to anchor your vessel in an unsafe and unseaman-like manner„which keeps the local shipyards humming. In addition, every local lay-a-bout in the area is informed of these ultra strict anchoring boundaries and deputized to terrorize the recreational boaters within, should they get even close to being out-of-bounds. ƒ has the wind shifted three degrees? If so, wake em up and rouse em out and make them re-anchor endlessly in the rain„just for the simple joy of watching them do so. Why not poke the One Percenters (in their gilded, waterborne cages) with sharpened sticks? (All yachties are universally deemed rich, regardless of how poor they might actually be.) Some people, of course, say I paint an unfair picture. They are correct. I apologize for my too-rosy-of-a-PortAuthority-world-view. A few ports are far, far less kind than described above. Oh, the agony of their prissy, petty port routines! Why are all pilot boats designed to create large, destructive wakes? Why do they like to circle you so close„at 3am? The abuse starts early. Each yacht shall be, if possible, repeatedly ordered to re-anchor at least “ve times initially upon entrance„just to set the military tone, and get the yachtie in the proper sure, abuse me at will spirit. Often, in places like Colon, Panama, local unemployment is a problem. Equitable distribution of wealth is also a related problem. Most workable solutions to such societal problems are both complex and costly„but not all. Thus, the local muggers are informed of the dinghy docks location, and the boat boys are lat/longed, too. In some ports, law enforcement is told to look the other way but in other commercial shipping areas ƒ well, the of“cials are so busy taking bribes and collecting baksheesh, this step isnt necessary. Ex-cons need hope, too„why not issue them ship-andyacht agent business cards? In addition to the above abuse, the port professionals are urged to be creative in the formulation of bizarre, unreasonable, unfathomable Port Rules & Regs. My favorite port bizzarity was in Salalah, Oman, where a permit was required to dive over the side to clean your prop. This permit required three days and the services of an expensive agent to get„in addition to paying off a sizable slice of the local populace. Why, exactly,Ž I inquired sweetly at the time, is a permit required?Ž Ah,Ž said the grinning, bribe-counting of“cial behind the port authority counter, you could be a terrorist and attempting to sink our naval vessels with your limp mines!Ž


20 ALLATSEA.NET SEPTEMBER 2013Ive seen the future„and it doesnt work, at least not in Colon, Panama, where the lifetime adventure of a canal transit is now a non-stop ordeal of bureaucratic abuse, Panamanian-style. It used to be kinda funny when, in the Third World, people demanded “ve dollars for doing absolutely nothing„ now, these same folks are demanding “ve hundred dollars for same-same„and feeling entitled to it. I used to joke about a Panama Canal transit„that no matter how bad it got, it was far far better than rounding Cape Horn. I am currently attempting my third transit of the Canal. My “rst one was fun, my second one was ƒ survivable ƒ and this one has been totally miserable! If I go around again, it will be via Cape Horn„and the vipers of Club Nautico, Colon, be damned. Actually, it isnt the Panama Canal Authority itself which is currently so out of control, but the local government of Colon. The fees to clear-in are completely arbitrary. One fellow started asking for a hundred dollars to issue a year-long cruising permit for Panama Canal users„and, often, got it. Thus, everyone piled on the gimme-gimme bus, despite dozens of interdepartmental memos stating that no such fee applies. Each greedy of“cial has a tiny little “efdom„ and tries to squeeze you for as much as they can. I dont squeeze well. Of course, I understand that the ports are there to make money„and that we yachties can be an annoyance. But this force them into an expensive marina and make em hire a local agent so everyone gets a cut trend is horrible. I have been repeatedly told by of“cials in small countries,  ƒ but it is only a hundred dollars, sir„nothing to you!Ž A hundred dollars is not nothing to me, especially when every local with a ballpoint pen is demanding a picture of President Ben Franklin. I “rst circumnavigated in 2000. Id say the fees are now more than ten to twenty times what they were„with no end in sight, and no increase in service (the reverse, actually). Soon, only the wealthy will be able to circumnavigate„ from bank to bank, around the world. EDITORS NOTE: Capn Fatty and Carolyn have recently been (reluctantly) distributing their life savings along the seedy waterfront of Colon, Panama. Capn Fatty Goodlander has lived aboard for 53 of his 60 years, and has circumnavigated twice. He is the author of Chasing the Horizon and numerous other marine books. His latest, Buy, Out“t, and Sail is out now. Visit: fattygoodlander.com Sailing Humor ƒ his mind isnt the only thing which is limp,Ž my wife chimed in„turn-coat that she is. A limpet is a type of sea snail, or aquatic gastropod mollusk, which ƒŽ I was about to say huf“ly, then “nished off lamely with, ƒ oh, forget it!Ž In a sense, these port sadists are doing a favor for their marine service industry„by getting the sailing consumer accustomed to paying high quality money for low quality abuse. Its all about framing admitted one international port authority economist who coyly declined to be identi“ed. We want to lower the resistance to preposterous payment„in the hopes that the yacht will, eventually, pay almost any sum to be free of our abuse!Ž Huh?Ž this publication said in response. Lets put it another way,Ž said the economist. It is not easy to get someone to pay you for hitting them in the head with a hammer„but it is easy to get them to pay you to stop hitting them in the head with a hammer! See the beauty of the concept? Isnt it econo-marvelous? And hammers are, even in the Turd World, relatively inexpensive. And widely distributed.Ž We stared back blankly.  ƒ the important thing,Ž he grinned back to us, is to have no shame !Ž The Port Suez Port Authority is the best. They require all yachts to call them before entering„and then sternly tell said yachts not to enter until given permission. Then they are never, ever given permission! Ha ha! Some poor saps have been circling out there for years, still paying for George W. Bushs sins. The only way anyone gets through this humorous Mideast prank is to be informed by another better-informed yachtie that port authority permission will never arrive„no matter how long they wait„and that they should blow it off and keep coming. This is hard to do for many law-abiding folk who have been brought up to respect authority and to obey the rules. Oman has very few requirements to clear in„and lots and lots of em to clear out. For example, you dont have to have any marine insurance to clear in, but you must have a very speci“c policy to clear out ƒ or (1) pay a “ne; (2) buy it on-thespot, and (3) ƒ sorry, I forgot my receipt book today, sir!Ž Welcome to the New World Order„where the Third World “nally seizes the levers of power„and suddenly nothing gets done (even slowly!), at great expense. A hundred dollars is not nothing to me, especially when every local with a ballpoint pen is demanding a picture of President Ben Franklin.

22 ALLATSEA.NET SEPTEMBER 2013 Sailing Humor BY JULIAN PUTLEY GRAPHICS BY HANNAH WELCH Sailboats, in fact boats in general, make noises when at anchor … and the more the boat rolls the more the noises increase. Some sailors are so attuned to their boats noises that they can instantly tell when something is amiss. When a boat rolls and some item in a locker, on a shelf or in the fridge bangs consistently from side to side, it can become the most irksome annoyance on the planet. Last week Charlie was on a charter with two couples and was woken at two in the morning by an annoying, consistent banging. He got up to address the problem only to “nd out that the rhythmic banging was coming from inside the cabin of the frolicsome duo in the forepeak. Banging, thought Charlie, how appropriate. Noises on boats are almost in“nite in nature. They may consist of squeaky hinges, bilge or water pumps sucking at any hour of the day or night, halyards slapping the mast, gooseneck squeaking on a less than taut main sheet, dinghy slapping from lapping waves, anchor rollers creaking, blocks squawking … and on and on. Then there is the guest who suffers from incontinence; he troops to the head three times a night and ”ushes noisily every time … and usually bangs the door to boot. During the day charter guests often barrage Charlie with incessant questions: What were the roughest seas youve ever sailed in? Have you ever been in a hurricane? Have you ever run aground? been really scared? had to abandon ship? ƒ on and on ad in“nitum. Charlie now carries ear phones and puts them on at the earliest opportunity, scuse me, just listening to the weather forecast.Ž Sleep deprivation can be tiresome. In the morning the coffee pot has barely boiled when the guests stumble into the cockpit. Theres no Good Morning just more noise: The fan didnt work, the shower wasnt hot enough, the toilet smells. Charlie nods and smiles, hell take care of it later. When its time to get underway its also time for more noise. Its a funny thing but people seem to get embarrassed by silence. For Charlie theres nothing more pleasant than sailing along with the sounds of wind in the sails and the swish of the wake. But tourists become uneasy at the sound of silence; to them it means youre not having a good time. Better to turn on the music ƒ LOUD ƒ then well be having fun! Evening comes and shoreside bars want customers. After dinner local bands vie for dollar-spending tourists, so music gets pumped up to high volume. Then a neighboring bar competes for business … more volume. Before long youre almost blasted out of the anchorage. The guests, of course, want to go ashore to “nd out where the best fun is: That ones loudest, it must be the best!Ž Its rather like someone who doesnt understand your language; a foreigner! How do you make him understand? Amazingly some will just shout louder. Charlie likes good music but he also admires the phrase: Silence is Golden.

Stephen Deckoff Sr. the St. John, USVI-based owner/angler of the 60ft Rybovich, caught “ve blue marlin and his son, Stephen Jr. caught three to give Pescador a total of eight blue marlin releases for the tournament. We stayed consistent by releasing four the “rst day, two the second and two the third,Ž explains Deckoff Sr. who “shed extensively before moving to the Virgin Islands two years ago and has angled with his current crew for about a year.

Only two anglers have reeled in this honor twice … the late Howard Crouse in 1965 and 1988, and Puerto Ricos late, legendary angler Ralph Christiansen in 1973 and 1984. Interestingly, Pescador was formerly owned by Christiansen, who died in a plane crash in 2009 while returning from a weekend of bill“shing in the Dominican Republic.

This unpopular word in the cruisers vocabulary evokes thoughts of hard work, uncomfortable living conditions, busy, long days and short, mosquito-rich, nights. It is a reminder of sweaty work-outs and being sore and dirty. It promises extra trips to the chandlery, because … better admit it … you will have forgotten to buy something you need, or youll have to get more of it. It means scary moments during the actual hauling and splashing, and a big dent only (you hope) in your bank account. It also requires a bit of planning, and ƒ cooperation of the weather. There is no escape from the Caribbean heat and humidity. Or the downpours. Yet boatyards are an important part of our extended lives on the water. They are a necessary evil. The time spent in them is preferably as short, as productive, and as affordable as possible. But, in the end, there is no greater feeling than to see our beloved ”oating home, all shiny, “xed, cleaned up and freshly painted, being lowered back into the water where she belongs.

30 ALLATSEA.NET SEPTEMBER 2013 Seamanship & Voyaging During our six years of cruising on Irie a stay in the boatyard was a yearly and sometimes twice a year occurrence for Mark and me. To make matters worse … or better? … and to be able to pursue our sailing plans, Mark and I were married while we lived on the hard in Annapolis, Maryland. A few months later, our little catamaran was dwarfed by the giants in Thunderbolt Marine, Georgia. Many boatyard visits followed once we reached the Caribbean. Some of them were strictly necessary, others were induced by our overcautious and under-experienced attitude, but all of them are remembered for different reasons. Puerto del Rey in Puerto Rico had to be convinced that our dogs were really well-behaved and needed to live with us, and that we had to do our own work. Walks to the shower block were extremely long; good planning and anticipation were required! Bobbys in Philipsburg, St. Maarten, had us over for a pit stop. No toilet building on the property, but it was affordable. Then it was on to Grenada, where we spent three hurricane seasons. Our “rst haul-out was in Spice Island Marine, which is conveniently located next to a chandlery and popular restaurant/bar, and close to buses for shopping. It has adequate facilities and services. If you try one of Grenadas south coast boat yards then you have to try the other. So, we hauled Irie at Grenada Marine, surrounded by jungle. Upon our return from the US, it had rained ... hard. I remember sloshing around in mud while working on Irie s bottom. A restaurant, marine store, sanitary block and services are on the premises. We stayed for a few days, before heading west. Mark and I managed to cruise the ABC Islands without hauling and even spent a year in the San Blas, before arriving in Shelter Bay Marinas yard in Panama; the only game in town for catamarans. We had beaten the record ƒ Irie managed to spend an uninterrupted year-and-a-half in the water. While it had always been our goal to go two years, we failed miserably every year. This last visit in the boatyard was a memorable one. Shelter Bay is an out-of-the-way place with a free, daily shopping bus to a mall and beautiful surroundings. Not only was this our least affordable yard stay, it was also our longest, wettest, and least productive. While usually staying about “ve days on the hard for a big stop, here, it turned into eleven days; another record. No skilled work was available, it rained a lot, and Mark fell from the ladder and strained his wrist. The modern facilities, the pool, and the jungle walks were inviting. Unfortunately, time is money and we were not able to take full advantage of them. While we try to “x most of Irie s needs at anchor„from dropping the rudders to change the bushings, to removing and re-bedding the emergency hatches„boatyard visits are inevitable for chores like replacing thru-hulls, serious work on the sail drives and prepping and painting the bottom. Luckily, the Caribbean has a plethora of haul-out facilities to keep working on that never ending list of projects. As for Mark and me (and our memorable haul-out experiences), maybe a boatyard would make a good place to have a baby?! Liesbet Collaert is a freelance writer. She and her husband Mark have been cruising on Irie for almost six years. They recently left the Caribbean and are heading west for new adventures in the South Paci“c.

Its about leadership, teamwork, and the Grady Family. Employees at Grady-White have a legendary reputation for designing and producing award-winning coastal and offshore boats. Be it for the center console or dual console models, express cabin or the walk-around cabin which the company pioneered in 1974, employees share the distinction of receiving every highest customer satisfaction rating in their category for coastal boat builders.

The founders believed if they crafted boats tougher than they had to be,Ž their smaller boats would stand up to coastal waves and weather. Grady and White got it right from the onset. The tradition continued when Eddie Smith Jr. purchased Grady-White Boats in 1968. At the age of 26, Smith recognized the opportunity to exercise his entrepreneurial instincts and engage the business principles he observed in his father, while working in the family-owned mail-order hosiery and apparel business. Smith went to work for his father at National Wholesale after graduating from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, realizing early on that this type of business was not where my passion was.Ž He continued to work and learn there for three years.

Grady-White owner and CEO, Smith sticks with his employees and they stick with him. During the early transition years, the company persevered because of its employees. Smith is said to be a tough taskmaster, but one who truly appreciates his co-workers. Smiths loyalty to employees was termed gutsy when, in 1993, he selected Kris Carroll, a feisty Yankee from MassachusettsŽ as the new president of Grady-White Boats. Smith wanted someone who understood his focus on the customer and his desire to take that focus to a new level. The decision for the coveted position astonished the industry as, at the time, Carroll was the “rst woman to hold the top post in the boat manufacturing business. Carroll came up through the ranks, starting as a production control clerk in 1975 then promoted to vice…president of engineering and manufacturing. She earned a reputation for having the ability to assemble and inspire the best managers,Ž and demonstrates natural tendencies toward team building and team integration. Her steadfast beliefs, commitment and hard work continue to set an example industry-wide. Tenure for senior managers ranges from 16 to 31 years. Many employees boast decades while others are quick to announce their double-digit years with the company. Continuity is one of the company traditions. Grady-White is known to hire people with limited technical skills and then train and educate them to harness and direct their talents, according to Shelley Tubaugh, Vice President of Marketing and head of Human Resources. People have limitless abilities and we help employees discover and develop them,Ž she said.Ž Part of this includes acquiring new skills which help at work and in their personal lives. Our employees have to want to work every day and be on time.Ž Tubaugh, a 25-year employee, explained Grady-White has a performance and attendance incentive program where employees receive an extra day of pay for each 12 month span of perfect attendance. One man, who achieved twelve days of extra pay, missed work to get married. He told her it was well worth starting the process over again. Part of the Grady-White success story is developing and maintaining close relationships with its customers and dealers; asking questions and incorporating features requested by boat owners. In the 2012 model year, customer demand prompted GradyWhite to bring back colored hulls, an option not available since the early 1970s.

36 ALLATSEA.NET SEPTEMBER 2013 Tips & Tricks HAULING OUT? BY THE EDITOR Hauling your boat onto terra “rma can push stress levels off the scale. Here are a few tips to help you cope the next time your boat takes to the air. As with many things nautical, preparation is the key. Before making a commitment, take a good look at the haulout facility, its environment and equipment. Is it secure? Is there a night watchman? Observe as the yard hauls a boat. Does it run smoothly? Are the yardmen and the lift/ crane operator calm? In other words, is it a professional operation? Are you happy with the hard-standing? Is it clean or covered in oil and dog excrement? Is the ground “rm or will it turn to mud when it rains? What on-site facilities are available? Is there a marine store or mechanics shop near by? How about transport, are there buses to town? THE DEVIL IS IN THE DETAILS Ask other boat owners if they are happy with the facilities and the way things are run. Look at how the boats are chocked. Fiberglass boats are tough but they still need care when chocking. Ideally, stands should be placed in line with bulkheads. I have seen stands placed The slings are covered with plastic to protect the bottom but make sure there is nothing trapped between slings and hull before you lift and that the slings are clear of impellers The slings on this wooden boat have been placed beneath the ballast keel, avoiding the deadwood and stem, this is correct. Spreader bars prevent the hull from being nipped. PHOTO: GEB/OCEANMEDIA

38 ALLATSEA.NET SEPTEMBER 2013under the boat. Gravel between the slings and hull will make you very unhappy. Wooden boats do well on slipways, but they are few and far between. I hauled on a very good slipway in England and was delighted with how gentle it treated my wooden boat. That was until halfway up the slip when the boat began to shake. The problem? A few small stones lodged in the tramlines. Thats all it took to make the boat and cradle shudder like an earthquake. Cranes have been used to haul boats in the islands for years. Crane drivers need to be skilled when it comes to hauling boats. Spreader-bars are critical if the boat is not to be pinched. But remember, what works for one boat might not work for another. The trick is to discuss each lift with the yard manager and if you think he offers bad advice, question it. Read through the yard contract before you haul. My experiences and the experiences of others con“rm that holding a boatyard responsible for damage to a vessel during haulout and storage can be daunting and often fruitless. There are some superb boatyards in the Caribbean where they make hauling a pleasure. Choose wisely. If a yard makes you feel uncomfortable, you might want to haul elsewhere. Gary E. Brown is the Editorial Director of All At Sea Caribbean He is a presenter on Island 92, 91.9 FM, St. Maarten, and the author of the thriller/sailing adventure Caribbean High For more information, visit: garyebrown.net Tips & Tricks in such a way that they force the hull inwards. Make sure the keel is well supported, especially if the ground is soft. Timbers should be high enough to allow you to sand and paint the underside of the keel. If you need to remove the rudder, will the yard let you dig a hole or will they charge for an extra lift? Steel boats by their nature are easier to deal with but that doesnt mean they should be treated with less care. Many, if not most, yacht yards will not let you sandblast or grind steel. Dont leave it until you start cutting to “nd out. Owners of wooden boats, especially old wooden boats, have the most nerve-racking time at haulout. Our wooden boat was damaged by a bolshie hoist driver who would not listen to my requests. The damage had a huge impact on our cruising plans and we almost lost the boat at sea. Wooden boats require extra care and expertise to lift. Make sure your boatyard of choice has experience with wooden boats. Travel hoist, crane or slipway? I have used them all and each has advantages and disadvantages. Travel hoists are by far the most common and enjoy a good safety record. However, the yard must know where to position the slings on the hull. When discussing the haulout with the yard manager carry a photo of the boats underwater pro“le and, if possible, a picture of the boat hanging in slings. If no such picture exists then take care, you dont want to damage a prop shaft, P bracket, saildrive or skeg. Be sure to mention the position of impellors and transducers. Also, make sure the slings are clean before they slide them PHOTO: GEB/OCEANMEDIA PHOTO: GEB/OCEANMEDIAPHOTO: GEB/OCEANMEDIA A yard with a combined Travelift and crane is a good choice if you want to unstep the mast In storage for the hurricane season … shored up and cross-braced Heavy timbers support this yacht which is high enough off the ground to allow access to the bottom of the keel




40 ALLATSEA.NET SEPTEMBER 2013 Our Natural World LOVELY WORMS PART II BY BECKY A. BAUER In our last column we introduced the predatory Fire Worm, one of 8,000 or more species of marine worms found throughout the world. While the Fire Worm moves about freely and is quite beautiful, two more marine worms, even more beautiful and frequently seen, are not mobile due to a lack of appendages designed for movement. The Christmas Tree Worms and Feather Duster Worms are tubeworms living their entire adult lives in one spot attached to various coral species. Tubeworms reproduce by discharging eggs and sperm into the surrounding water where fertilization takes place. The resultant larvae are carried by currents as a component of plankton. Those that are not consumed by plankton feeders settle upon coral. Once settled, most tubeworms burrow into the coral creating a foundation for building their tubes. Their tannish-grey tubes are made of calcium secreted by the worm. Some tubeworms have specialized sacs into which they separate grains of sand and bits of shell “ltered from the water. This mixture is added to their calcareous secretions. Rarely if ever are the actual tubeworms seen as the head and main body remain within the tube. What we do see is an evolutionary wonder. How does a worm that cannot move and remains throughout its lifetime encased in a tube manage to breathe and feed? As a diver, I never cease to smile when I “nd Christmas Tree Worms. Shaped like a Christmas tree in colors of white, red, blue, pink, orange, brown, maroon or yellow, the little worms bring about a myriad of happy reactions Rarely if ever are the actual tubeworms seen as the head and main body remain within the tube. What we do see is an evolutionary wonder. Christmas Tree WormsPHOTO: BECKY A. BAUER

At approximately an inchand-a-half in height, they are one of my favorite creatures to show new divers. What we see of the Christmas Tree Worms are the palps, also known as crowns, leading to their mouths. Each worm has two spiral cone shaped crowns. Radioles, feathery plumes, extend from the center spine of the crowns giving them their Christmas tree shape. These multipurpose radioles serve as the worms breathing apparatus as well as passively snagging food, phytoplankton, which is then carried down the crown into the worms mouth by tiny moving hairs called cilia. Cousin to the Christmas Tree Worm is the Feather Duster Worm, named after ostrich feather dusters due to their strong resemblance. Up to ten or more inches tall with radiole diameters of up to seven to eight inches, Feather Duster Worms are found in clusters as well as individually. Their color range includes white, brown, gray, pink, orange, red, and purple often with variegated striping. Feather Duster Worms have only one ”attened crown from which two fans of equal length radioles extend. Unlike the passive feeding Christmas Tree Worms, Feather Duster Worms move their radioles to create a current directed toward the worms mouth. Additionally, the radioles are covered in a sticky mucous like substance to which the plankton sticks giving this tube worm extra assistance when feeding. Giant Feather Duster WormPHOTOS: NOAA PHOTO LIBRARY


SEPTEMBER 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 43Like the Christmas Tree Worms, some species of Feather Duster Worms discharge eggs and sperm into the water; however, depending upon the species they may also deposit eggs in a gelatinous mass along the tube from which the eggs eventually break loose and disperse in currents. Christmas Tree Worms and Feather Duster Worms are easily disturbed. When disturbed, the radioles quickly withdraw into the tube and the worms operculum, hatch, shuts protecting the soft, defenseless worm. If left undisturbed, the operculum opens and the radiole slowly reappears. During times of stress, when plankton is scarce or water quality poor, both these tubeworm species can shed their radioles and regenerate new ones as conditions improve. These two species of tubeworms can live in water as shallow as a few feet up to depths of approximately 100 feet. Christmas Tree Worms are found mainly on coral while the commonly seen Feather Duster Worms are found amongst corals as well as at the base of reefs.

SEPTEMBER 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 49 Sailing is in the blood of St. Thomas Holmberg family. In fact, its a water sport excelled at and enjoyed by three generations. Family patriarch and Chicago native Dick Holmberg “rst visited the Virgin Islands in the 1950s while serving on a submarine in the U.S. Navy. This was the “rst step of what would ultimately foster a family legacy and a surname recognized in the sailing community literally around the world. Visit number two came a few years later when Holmberg and his bride Louise honeymooned on St. Thomas and decided to make the territory their home. Peter and I started sailing on a Sail“sh [predates the Sun“sh] at Sapphire and eventually our parents would United States Virgin Islands drag us along [behind the boat] and hold the rudder as we sailed back and forth in the bay … and capsized,Ž explains John Holmberg, Peters older brother. We joined the newly established St. Thomas Yacht Club (STYC) in 1964 and then got a yellow wooden pram for exploring along with two Sun“sh and many other small boats.Ž The familys sailing prowess showed itself “rst in the elder generation. In 1971, Louise, an avid swimmer, water-skier and sailor, became the “rst female Sun“sh World Champion, when competing in the 1971 Sun“sh Worlds in Puerto Azul, Venezuela. The following year, Dick proudly represented the Virgin Islands in the 1972 Summer Olympics in the Soling Class. SAILORS IN THE NEWSBY CAROL M.

50 ALLATSEA.NET SEPTEMBER 2013 This competitive streak continued into the second generation. Peter won an Olympic silver medal in the Finn Class in 1988 and was a helmsman for Americas Cup winner, Alinghi John, who has always enjoyed both one and two hulled boats, earned a bronze medal in Lasers at the 1987 Caribbean and Central American (CAC) Games and a “rst place at the 1994 Prindle 19 National Championship with then 12-year-old Chris Marshall. Closer to home, John has won several Rolex watches in the Beach Cat Class at the International Rolex Regatta (IRR), hosted by the STYC. It was at the IRR nearly a decade ago that John set sail with the third generation of the Holmberg family to take to the seas. That is, his now 14-year-old son Kai. We started racing together on the IC24, Stinger when Kai was “ve and then beach cats when he turned ten,Ž John tells. In 2010, we had the wonderful experience of representing the U.S. Virgin Islands at the CAC games in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico, in the Hobie 16. That taught Kai about humility and sportsmanship as we had a good beating by my friend and Hobie World Champion, Enrique Kike Figeroa.Ž With such a strong history of competitive sailing in the family, John has decided to adopt a low-pressure approach toward the sport with Kai. Our philosophy is KISS (keep it simple silly),Ž John explains. Kai and I race with only three main goals: (1) right side up, (2) start and “nish every race, and (3) have fun. We have won many races this way and are having a blast too.Ž John adds, I encourage Kai to sail sometimes when he does not want to, but I also know that all of his time “shing, diving, kayaking, paddle boarding and sur“ng, to name a few, are valuable experiences. If he decides to pursue another sport, I encourage it. You are only a kid once and the experiences you gather create the expertise that you will utilize for a lifetime!Ž Next up, John and Kai are launching a Formula 18 campaign.

Winning team members were: Janield Smith, Stephan Dundas, Rhone Kirby, Jules Mitchell, Lewis Fitzgerald and David Jackson. I am very proud of the boys,Ž says Karl James, head coach at the Antigua Yacht Club (AYC) and director of Antiguas National Sailing Academy (NSA). Ten teams with 60 sailors total competed, representing Antigua, St. Croix, the Bahamas, BVI, Anguilla, Puerto Rico, Trinidad & Tobago, the USA and for the “rst time Barbados. The “rst day, teams drew lots with “ve teams sailing in the morning and the remaining “ve in the afternoon. The wind was light and shifty, ten knots max,Ž James explains. We came in third in our heat, being beaten by the Bahamas and BVI 1.Ž The top three teams from both sessions advanced. The next day, winds averaged ten to 15 knots over the windBY CAROL M. BAREUTHER ward-leeward courses. Sailors were able to easily navigate the fairly constant trade winds well until the last race when winds died with the Sir Francis Drake channel currents causing all boats to perform last minute extra tacks in order to make the upwind mark. Team Antigua did extremely well in these conditions. They scored “rst place bullets in four of the “ve “nal days races and ended second in the second to last race by less than half a boat length. The last race was most special,Ž James tells. There was a squall right before, and afterwards the winds dropped to three to four knots. I chatted with the boys about what the wind was doing and we came up with a plan. They executed it perfectly. I couldnt have done it better.Ž James attributes the teams win to their training in advance of the regatta. Although the AYC and NSA dont have IC-24s, they do have a 26ft 1720 Sportboat.

What makes this regatta among the most unique junior sailing events in the Caribbean is that there are no dinghies such as Optimists, Lasers or Sun“sh, nor are there adult members competing on the teams. As a result, this regatta adds another dimension of pro“ciency to the regions junior sailors skill sets. Keelboats are good for team building,Ž James says. Even someone who isnt good as an individual dinghy sailor can shine as part of a team. As a result, we will be adding two more 1720s to our program by the start of Antiguas sailing season in November or December.Ž Finishers in second through tenth place were: St. Croix, Bahamas, BVI 1, Anguilla, Puerto Rico, Barbados, Trinidad & Tobago, USA and BVI 2. The BVI Premiers Cup International Youth Regatta is hosted by The Kids and The Sea BVI and the Rotary Clubs of the BVI. Rotarians volunteer to erect the tent village where teams stay, barbecue and serve meals, and assist in various other logistics of the weekend, while the Royal BVI Yacht Club of“ciates the racing.

SEPTEMBER 2013 ALLATSEA.NET 55 St. Maarten / St. Martin READY, SET, AND FINALLY ... SAILWith months of preparation and many postponed departures the young St. Maarteners who are attempting to sail around the world have set sail. In February 2013 Kippy Gilders, Alex Nebe, Maria Merckens, Laura Bijnsdorp and I came up with the idea to take the 52ft Beneteau, Corina IV around the world and visit over sixty countries in “ve continents. This two year adventure was met with immense support from the people of St. Maarten and was only made possible with their help. When we approached Budget Marine about being our primary sponsor we were greeted with such enthusiasm that within a week the details of their sponsorship were set and the dream was becoming a reality. However, not only businesses were swept up in the excitement. Many individuals began offering aid through services and funds. The whole idea of taking St. Maarten around the world took on a whole new meaning. What had started as the dream of very few had become the reality of many. The crew now felt that what they were doing was not so much a private endeavor as a joint effort of an entire community. We could not have asked for more! Preparations began when Kippy Gilders and I ”ew to Honduras to collect Corina IV from the shipyard in La CeiBY CAPTAIN MAX LOUBSER Corina IV carrying the flag of Sint Maarten proudly around the world

We spent a few days getting the boat ready to launch and scouring nearby towns for parts and supplies to make the journey home. After touching salt water for the “rst time in almost two years, we motor-sailed Corina IV to Utila for the “nal preparations. After a few days waiting for the friendly customs of“cer to arrive, the voyage to St. Maarten began. The three weeks that followed were not the best as we beat west into heavy weather in the Caribbean Sea. The boat, strong but not in tip-top condition, was battered by 30 to 40 knot winds and 20-foot seas. After weeks of gunnels in the water and problems with a leaky through-hull “tting and sun-damaged sails that were barely holding together, we made it home with a great sense of relief and a whole new respect for those who sail long distances to windward. Luckily, its possible to sail around the world by primarily going west downwind. Once in St. Maarten it became clear that we had made the right decision to bring the boat home in order to get it shipshape for the big trip. There is no better place in the Caribbean for out“tting or re“tting a boat. Most of the time was spent replacing and servicing all the hardware onboard as the long hibernation and years of sun and salt had taken their toll. Due to the leaky through-hull a lot of the wiring in the lower sections of the hull was damaged and needed replacing. It always amazes me how quickly salt water can turn a perfectly functioning electrical unit into a ball of useless corrosion. Corina IV top tip: When you “nish installing or redoing anything metal, cover it thoroughly with heavy duty corrosion inhibitor. Best $15 you will ever spend!Ž The days passed and the crew brought the boat back to sailing trim. The bilges received shiny through-hulls, the batteries were new and maintenance free, the engine was purring. Technicians from Electec brought our little Spectra water maker back to life, and Robby from St. Maarten Sails furnished us with a brand new set of Quantum sails. The momentum we had set in motion seemed to have spiraled out of our control and was sweeping us along on its own. But as with the best things in life, sometimes you just need to hold on and enjoy the ride because that is what you are going to remember the most. At 5:45pm on June 11, we left through a special opening of the Simpson Bay Bridge to a great sendoff from folks on the balcony of the St. Maarten Yacht Club and followed by a ”otilla of young St. Maarten sailors in their Optimist dinghies. We will miss our little island during the next two years and want to thank everyone on it for making our dream possible.

Lea met the sleepy island of Bequia in 1978, the year she and her family ventured south from the Virgin Islands on a charter boat. I saw the island for the “rst time from the deck of Ishtar a 38ft steel ketch.Ž They sailed into Admiralty Bay at dawn, just in time to witness the awakening of a place caught in time. Back then, Bequia wasnt much; the Friendship Rose was the ferry to St. Vincent; the Frangipani was the only hotel and the beach was a busy boatyard. For Lea, it was a brief encounter but one that made a lasting bond; she was smitten. Coming to Bequia„it just changed my life. All my money went to a fund to come here.Ž From the deck of Ishtar pen and paper in hand, a collection of sketches began, capturing the charm of “shermen, whalers, market ladies, and beachy bliss. During the mid 90s, one of lifes twists precipitated a lengthy stay on island pushing Julie and Douglass Lea closer toward moving there. Not long after, a serendipitous meeting sealed the deal. Julie had packed a beach bag with a towel, cover-up, the usual necessities but she also threw in some slides of her work. She took the bag to meet a friend and along the way was introduced to a sales manager from the Caribbean division of McMillan Publishing. The three of us had lunch,Ž she recounted. I showed him slides of my work. The guy picked one up and said, This looks like a book.Ž For “ve months, Lea combed through sketch books, “nding just the right elements that would tell Bequias story„ relay its charms„the ones that had captured her heart. The project came together and in 2000 that same fellow brought Bequia Re”ections, An Artist in the Caribbean to Bequia for a launching. The party, held at the Frangipani, was attended by Prime Minister, Sir James F. Son Mitchell. He was so happy to have the book,Ž Lea said. Lea works primarily with acrylic on wood and occasionally on canvas. Its thick and thin,Ž she explained. Here in the tropics I have to keep them in the bottom of the fridge.Ž A prime example of her energetic, full color is a 3ft by 8ft piece that hangs upstairs in Bequias Gingerbread Hotel. Her latest book features the work of Australian sailor Peter Carr, another lucky artist who painted Bequia before its awakening. In her studio were two 4ft by 7ft paintings which were rescued from the islands St. Marys Anglican Church, then undergoing renovation. Lea was asked by the Bequia Heritage Committee to restore the paintings, no small feat considering that theyd been under attack by termites and rain for years.

62 ALLATSEA.NET SEPTEMBER 2013 Grenada Jason Fletcher has always loved the sea. No wonder its become the lifeblood of his livelihood as founder and managing director of Grenada Marine. Born and raised on Grenada, Fletchers interest in and love of boating started when, as a young boy, he participated in sailing programs run by the Grenada Yacht Club. I remember sailing whenever I had a chance and I loved it!Ž Fletcher recalls. I still get a sense of excitement whenever I am at sea. I hope I never lose this and that I am able to pass it on to my children.Ž After completing school, Fletcher bought himself a small “shing boat and started “shing commercially. This led him to sell “sh, which headed him into building and buying commercial “shing trawlers. Fletchers Caribbean Seafoods Limited, was based in the old Grenada Yacht Services (GYS), now Port Louis Marina in St. Georges. The GYS property was then in dilapidated condition, so Fletcher found himself selling fuel and offering general services to visiting yachts, all the while running his own ”eet of “shing boats. A few years later Fletcher attempted to purchase GYS, however the deal ultimately fell through. When that door closed, another opened when Fletchers good friend showed him a ten-acre parcel in the beautiful sheltered bay of St. Davids. I instantly had a vision of what would become Grenada Marine,Ž Fletcher explains. Having already convinced my bankers of the viability of the yachting industry, they again had my back when I approached them with a plan to build a boatyard in the bush.Ž Fletcher, along with close friends and family members George Radix, Stefan Fletcher and Patrick Brathwaite, started Grenada Marine in 1998.

Grenada was the “rst destination south of this zone and this proved instrumental in convincing Fletchers bankers and investors about the viability of the project. Today, there are approximately 600 to 800 pleasure craft in Grenadian waters at any given point in time and 95 percent of these are sailboats. Over the past 14 years, Fletcher and his team have completed many interesting projects. For example, they have designed and fabricated custom transoms on a Brazapi 50, re“tted and repainted two Spronk catamarans, and Awlgripped Swans, Hinckleys, Catanas, Outremers and most recently a Sunseeker 64. Most impressively, when Hurricane Ivan in 2004 toppled 32 boats out of the 200 that were in storage at the time, Fletcher and his team rebuilt 25 of them to the satisfaction of owners, insurance companies and in some cases manufacturers. Lately,Ž Fletcher says, our focus has been on more accurate estimating and quoting, proper scheduling, supervision and project management from haul through to launch. One of our principles is that we stand behind our work; if a client is not happy we do what it takes to solve the problem and remedy the situation. Our endgame is to have a happy, satis“ed customer; a well repaired, ef“ciently maintained boat, and fully paid projects that have returned the projected pro“t margin.Ž In the future, Fletcher is hoping to build a small service marina, upgrade the restaurant and leisure facilities, and perhaps even put in a customer club or accommodations with a pool area and deck to relax. Meanwhile, he and his team continue to build on their extensive sales dealerships and service agencies, such as Volvo Penta, Raymarine, Yanmar and Mastervolt. What does Fletcher enjoy doing when hes not working? Sailing and “shing,Ž he says. I cherish the time that I am able sail in a few regattas or enter a few bill“shing tournaments. Although I dream of it, I do not have much cruising experience. My boating has mainly been within Trinidad, Grenada and the Grenadines. Id love to explore the wider Caribbean region and then one day perhaps even a circumnavigation … who knows!Ž Carol M.

If youve never heard of Glover Island youre in good company, because despite its close proximity to Grenada, few people have ever been there. But this small uninhabited islet holds an interesting piece of Grenadas history as it was home to a Norwegian whaling station until 1925 and ruins still exist there today. Guests made their way to Glover Island on boats that ranged from small RIBs to large catamarans. Sailing School Grenada joined in on the action as well and made Glover their Sunday Fun Race destination. Once rafted up, everyone had the opportunity to relax both in and out of the water. Snorkelling and noodle ”oats were popular activities for some; others found a shady spot to chat with friends and partake of the bar and barbecue. Overall the days event was great fun and a big success with seven boats rafted up and close to 50 guests. The PCYC would like to thank Le Phare Bleu Marina for providing their tugboat Calico which served as the central point of the raft-up and home base for the bar and barbecue. Jane Royce and her cooking crew also deserve a huge round of applause for putting together a feast of delicious barbecue items and sides. If this kind of fun sounds like your kind of thing, then nows the perfect time to join the PCYC because theyre offering HALF PRICE on new membership fees until the end of this year.

88 ALLATSEA.NET SEPTEMBER 2013 Caribbean Dining & Provisioning THE DISH BY CAPN JAN ROBINSON If youre looking to add new healthy recipes to your cooking repertoire, look for nutritional foods that contain vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and other healing agents for your body. Re“ned food, including re“ned sugar, salt, and grains, contains little or no healthful nutrients. It may be a little more expensive and take a little longer to “nd fresh ingredients, but de“nitely worth it.KALE, BLACK BEANS, RED PEPPERS & PINE NUTSPrep time: 15 minutes. Cooking time: 15 minutes. Serves: 4 3 Tbsp organic, extra virgin olive oil 5 garlic cloves, minced 1 large red onion 1 red pepper, seeded and chopped *4 Tbsp chia seeds 1 Tbsp oregano cup pine nuts, roasted Heat olive oil in large, heavy bottom frying pan over mediumhigh heat. Add garlic, onions, and red pepper; cook until softened and browned. Add chia seeds and toast about 30 seconds. Add oregano, salt and pepper. Add black beans and heat through. Add vegetable stock and bring mixure to a boil, then turn to low. Before serving, turn heat up and add kale; cook until kale has softened and turned bright green. Mix in roasted pine nuts or sprinkle on top. *Chia Seeds, high in omega 3s, calcium, and “ber Serve alone or with salad, veggie burger, or baked organic chicken and quinoa. TWO LAYER CHOCOLATE BLACK BEAN CAKEPrep time: 15 minutes. Cooking time: 45 minutes. Serves: Many 12 tablespoons unsalted butter OR unre“ned coconut oil OR puree apples, bananas or dates 1-1/2 cups sugar OR 1 cup honey + 2 teaspoon pure stevia extract 10 large eggs 2 Tbsp pure vanilla extract 1 tsp sea salt Preheat oven to 325F. Spray two 9-inch cake pans with extra virgin olive oil cooking spray, or just grease it with a thin layer of butter. In a large bowl, beat butter with sugar, until light and ”uffy. Add four of the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Shake off excess water from beans. Place beans, remaining 6 eggs, vanilla, and salt into blender or food processor. Blend on high, about one minute, until beans are completely lique“ed. No lumps! Pour bean batter into egg mixture and mix. In a small bowl mix together cocoa powder, baking soda, and baking powder and add to bean and egg mixture. Mix thoroughly. Pour batter into prepared cake pans and smooth the top. Grip pan “rmly by the edges and rap it on the counter a few times to pop any air bubbles. Bake for 40-45 minutes. Cake is done when the top is rounded and “rm to the touch. Or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes, turn out cakes from pans, and ”ip over again on to a cooling rack. Let cool until cake reaches room temperature, then cover in plastic wrap or with cake dome. For BEST ”avor, let cake sit over night. (there is no bean taste!) If you are stacking this cake, level the top of one, with a long serrated knife, shaving off layers until it is ”at and even. Frost just before serving.NOTE: Instead of icing the cake, just dust with powdered sugar. Or, you can serve the cake as a dessert with a spoonful or two of unsweetened berries on the side; fresh or frozen (berries that have just thawed will have juice, that will soak into the chocolate sponge yummy!). CHOCOLATE BUTTER CREAM FROSTING (ENOUGH TO COVER A 9-INCH LAYER CAKE) 1 cup butter (no substitutes), softened (2 sticks) 4-1/2 cups confectioners sugar 1-1/4 cups baking cocoa In a large mixing bowl, cream butter. Gradually beat in confectioners sugar, cocoa and vanilla.NOTE: This recipe has enough milk to keep the frosting “rm at room temperature.NOTE: Double recipe if you would like the same “lling in the middle of the two layers. HEALTHY EATING Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste 2 (15.5 oz) cans black beans, drained and rinsed 2-1/2 cups organic vegetable stock 8 leaves of kale, (stem removed) ripped in pieces 2 (15 oz) cans of unseasoned black beans, drained and rinsed 12 Tbsp cocoa powder 2 tsp baking powder 1 tsp baking soda 2 Tbsp water (omit if using honey) 1/2 tap vanilla extract 1/4 cup milk (or add a little more for consistency ... a little at a time)
