    It’s spring, and you cant wait to get your boat back in the water.  Not so fast… BoatUS had an article recently, What’s Really in Your Marina Contract, that was very helpful.  Many of us just sign these contracts thinking they are a standard stock contract without realizing that they have been modified and there can be potential negative impact. Marina owners are now trying to shift more responsibility to slip holders.  In some of the cases, it can void certain areas of your boat owner’s insurance, and in others, it can leave gaps that make you responsible.

It is one of two new vessels in the Ramform Titan class of 3D seismic survey vessels belonging to Petroleum Geo-Services, an Oslo-based seismic data acquisition company. Its unique design, reminiscent of the Millennium Falcon in Star Wars, was developed with one single purpose in mind – collecting the maximum amount of seismic data quickly, safely and reliably.
