Midway Island And The Laysan Albatross

The Captain asked me to swing by his desk for a second today to “check something out”. Usually this is to check out some inflatable boat design or item, but today it was to check out a trailer for a film called “Midway”. (see embedded) or view at www.midwayfilm.com

I have to say that I was moved enough to post the trailer here.Too much of our enviroment is trashed and full of plastic garbage and this hammers it home. I constantly see empty cans and plastic bottles in my landings on beaches everywhere I go. I’ve taken to carrying trash bags so I can pick this crap up and dispose of it properly. Why can’t people just take their trash with them? You can’t hardly find a place that doesn’t have plastic waste on it or beer cans creating an ecological nightmare. Go ahead and look next time you’re out in your boat or dinghy and you’ll see what I mean. Too often we’ll get motors in the shop that suck this stuff up into their cooling systems causing expensive repairs and much frustration.

Do your part, pick up your trash and help keep the water clean for another generation.  Let’s not be the last one.

Tracking Pacific Walrus: Expedition to the Shrinking Chukchi Sea Ice

The Inflatable Boat Center works with their customers very closely to accomplish their missions.

Take a look at the USGS Video “Tracking Pacific Walrus: Expedition to the Shrinking Chukchi Sea Ice” I’ve  embedded in this post featuring an IBC custom rigged Searider. USGS’s mission was walrus tagging and tracking the Arctic Ice Zone, a mission made successful by the use of an inflatable boat.

The use of an inflatable boat offers many benefits over a solid hulled vessel, one of which is SAFETY, others might include speed,economy,handling,etc.

If I showed you a customer list you would ask yourself, “Why don’t I own an inflatable boat?”. That’s probably the biggest question in boating right now, and with current economic woes the fiberglass and metal boat guys are asking themselves,”why aren’t I selling boats?”.

Inflatable boats are the environmentally concious choice and they are infinitely configureable to meet the demands of any user.

That’s the answer.
