Detroit Boat Show Features

  #
DBS LogoTupolev (NOO7) at Detroit Boat Show
The Detroit Boat Show is bringing in a super-fast Russian boat called the Tupolev (N007).  During the arms buildup, the former Soviet Republic developed some pretty bizarre weapons, vehicles and boats that were never mass- produced, this rescue boat was one of them.  It is powered by an MP14 aircraft fighter engine, and will move 150 miles per hour on the water.  It is one of only three produced and the only one still in existence.   Its estimated value is $2 million. 

N007 Russian Rescue Boat

 

"Obviously, James Bond wasn't
the only one with fast toys," said Detroit Boat Show Manager Van Snider.  "During the cold war, this boat was a top-secret craft, that was used to rescue Russians in the artic."  The boat has been painstakingly restored and all components are hand-built and designed for this machine.  It is made of very strong aluminum alloy.  It's empty weight is 3150 lbs.  Its engine is an MP14 9-cylinder radial 365 HP, with a 264 KW Turbocharge  Its length is 6110 Cm., width is 2160 Cm., and draft is 10 Cm.

  #

MBIA PROMOTES WEARING PERSONAL FLOTATION DEVICES THROUGH BOAT SHOW TICKET DISTRIBUTION
January 17, 2005, Livonia, MI ---- The Michigan Boating Industries Association is promoting the use of personal floatation devises by including the North American Safe Boating Campaign logo- “Boat Smart - Boat Safe - Wear it” and the statement “Boat Smart - Wear A Life Jacket” on all tickets for admittance to MBIA boat shows. The PFD promotion is included on ticket stubs that are returned to the boat show attendees after entering the show.

“The association feels it is important to promote the voluntary use of personal floatation devices to recreational boaters in various ways. With both our shows, we have the potential to reach more than 100,000 boaters and we felt this is one of our best ways, remind boaters who are attending MBIA boat shows to boat smart and wear a life jacket,” stated MBIA president Van Snider who also is the manager of the association’s boat shows. MBIA owns and produces the Detroit Boat Show at Cobo Center to be held on February 12-20, 2005 and the Spring Boating Expo scheduled for March 17-20, 1005 at the Novi Expo Center in Novi, Michigan.   more...

2004 PARADE OF LIGHTS

  #
The Parade of Lights is a boat parade organized by Boat Town USA on the first Saturday in August along the lower Clinton River and Lake St. Clair. Each year, the parade attracts tens of thousands of spectators to marinas, backyard parties, and boat docks along the Clinton River and Metro Beach. Decorated boats and riverfront houses compete to win cash prizes. The Pride of Michigan, the research vessel for the Great Lakes Division of the U.S. Naval Sea Cadets Corps, leads the parade. The parade begins at dusk (about 9 pm) and runs from the Bridgeview Bridge on the Clinton River below Mt. Clemens, out onto Lake St. Clair, around Huron Pointe, and ends at Metro Beach Metro Park.

For the first time in 2004, the Clinton River Watershed Council had an entry in the parade, thanks to the sponsorship of longtime member, David Linsdeau. David is owner and captain of the Oceanis, a one-of-a-kind 65-foot vessel that started life as a near-shore oil tanker on the Atlantic coast and is now being converted for personal use, complete with a kitchen and living space. David welcomed CRWC and 20 guests aboard the Oceanis for the 2004 Parade of Lights. With the help of volunteers, we outfitted the boat with two 8' x 10' maps of the Clinton River watershed, two 12-foot banners announcing our name and website, hundreds of white lights, and a sound system broadcasting water-themed tunes. A fabulous time was had by all! We are pleased to report that the Oceanis won third place in the Business Over 36' category, and David Linsdeau donated the $200 prize to CRWC!   more...

According to Lois Darst, spokeswoman for the Burt Lake Preservation Association, a variety of speakers will present helpful information to the public on protecting their shoreline property. The event is co-sponsored by the group and the Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council.

"The association has embarked on a significant long-term project to educate and encourage lakefront property owners to improve their shorelines to improve water quality, shoreline erosion and esthetic value by vegetating the waters edge with natural plants and erosion control measures," said Darst.

Hydros return to border cities

  #
The official name is The 2004 Bluewater International Hydrofest, and these two quiet communities, St. Clair and Courtright, Ontario, will share in bringing back the superboats to the St. Clair River.

If you like fast hydroplanes competing in a beautiful setting, you're in luck.

Years ago, in the 1950s, the cities of St. Clair and Courtright, Ontario, were the sites for the International Boundary Trophy. Names such as Such Crust III, Miss Detroit, Miss US II and Guy Lombardo's Tempo VII were in their heyday.

Drivers Bill Cantrell, Lee Schoenith, Bill Muncey, Walter Kade and their home town hero, Chuck Thompson, made racing history here.  

This major event runs Aug. 20-22 from 8:30 a.m. to late afternoon each day.  more...

Michigan Swimmers are Proving Successful in Olympics

  #

Still, she wanted to go through a mock run -- checking the fit and feel of a uniform she hopes will propel her to a fast swim in today's preliminary heat of the women's 4 x 200-meter freestyle relay at the Summer Games.

Kara Lynn Joyce of Ann Arbor has been collecting Olympic memories, as well. Actually, she has been wearing them.

"Portugal, Indonesia, the Virgin Islands, the 'Today' show -- that's my favorite -- Panama, Barbados," Joyce said Tuesday as she ran her fingers along the ribbon of her credential, which was decorated with Olympic pins. "The feeling of the Olympics has really taken over me now."

Piper and Joyce are part of a new wave of swimmers, so to speak -- talented collegians who have embraced their first Olympics instead of being intimidated.   more...

Cheesy festival puts burgers, fun on the grill

  #

ImageCASEVILLE — Grab your Hawaiian shirts and flip-flops and head to Michigan’s thumb-area for this beachside town’s annual tribute to the cheeseburger, sizzling through Aug. 22.

The 6-year-old Caribbean-style event, described by organizers as wacky, tacky and tasteless, drew a record 50,000 last year because of Metro Detroit’s power outage.

“People came here from southeast Michigan for the power last year, and now that they’ve seen what a great festival it is, we expect a lot of them back,” says Sally Stewart, a festival organizer who works for the Caseville Chamber of Commerce.

New activities this year include Jogging or Runnin’ Around, a 1-mile walk and 5-K run, a motorcycle show on the beach, a Conch Honk contest (blowing conch shells) and Funky Fruit and Veggie Animal Creations, where adults and kids make animal creations from fruit and vegetables. Judges award trophies to the best and most creative. The pet fashion show features locals and their pets.   more...

Bluewater Internation Hydrofest - Aug. 20-22

  #

The river will be open every 2 hours for non race boat traffic. The Coast Guard expects to shut the river traffic down at 8 a.m. on all 3 days of the hydrofest and then open every two hours after that. So the next opening would be at 10:00 - 10:15 a.m. etc. This schedule is subject to change and flucuation depending on freighter traffic through the area. For instance, if the hydroplane testing is delayed because of freighter traffic, then the river opening would be delayed by the same amount of time. But every diligent effort will be made to make sure it is open every two hours.   more...

Event ties up boats on Lake St. Clair

  #
Organizers of the weekend’s Lake St. Clair raft tie-up believe they have set a world’s record for the most boats tied together. Brian Elliott, one of the event co-founders who works at a Harrison Township marina, said 1,547 boats tied together in Big Muscamoot Bay in northeast Lake St. Clair. That eclipsed the record of 944, said Elliott, who wanted to do something positive and family-oriented on Lake St. Clair.   more...

Coast Guard Festival: 'Get there early, stay late'

  #

David Ray has a theory as to why so many people find Grand Haven so irresistible.

"It's beautiful, and you can get around here easy," the 47-year-old Grand Haven native said as he roller-skated recently along the Grand River channel.

As Roger Jonas, executive director of the Coast Guard Festival puts it: "Once you get downtown, you can get to everything. Everything is pretty compact in a walkable area. It's a very walkable festival ... once you find a parking place."

Parking definitely will be at a premium during the upcoming, climactic final weekend of the 80th Coast Guard Festival, prompting Jonas to recommend, "Get there early and stay late." Traffic and parking aside, there are several singular attributes that make Grand Haven one crowded but hip little place in the summer.   more...
