Beef Bone Broth; Biologically Better or Buzzword Bull$#!T ?
NATURAL AND NATURALLY. Two years ago, as it turned out, the way weird things do, someone I love, fell sick on a day that I had that big pot of
bone broth already on the stove. I got the phone call; gathered up what I would need and packed a granny-sized bag full of beef broth. He ended up
living on the stuff. I have been keeping a full stock on hand and try to refill his stash every chance I get.

Q: Alex, my boat is on a trailer, it is my first boat and I am very excited to use it for Striper Season on the Hudson River shortly.
What should I do to prepare? (For much of our readership the answers are straight forward, however for a first time boat buyer and user below are some important and helpful hints.)
A: Check your battery. Bring it up to full charge. Check your steering. Turn the engine back and forth with the engine in the down position. (Have someone else do this as you stand behind turning the engine and watch that everything is working properly.)
As I was about to leave Liberty Landing Marina by car on January 4th, something a little unusual peeked my interest. It was a beautiful Down East sedan coming past the fairway in a light snow. I stopped to check it out. As the boat got closer it executed a perfect landing. There was the captain, comfy at the wheel in a light sweater vest, and his lovely mate. She stepped onto the deck in winter garb, leaned over with the stern line, and snagged the dock cleat with a single wave of her arm. She then moved to the foredeck and did the same for the forward line… a winter boating ballet.
Spring 2017 brings a new resort boating experience for mariners on Lake Champlain. Basin Harbor, now formally known as Basin Harbor Resort & Boat Club, will introduce the lake’s first-ever Boat Club in time for the historic Vermont resort’s 131st season, which begins in May 2017. The resort’s brand-new, 60-slip docking system will give travelers arriving by boat access to 400 acres of resort amenities, including golf, spa, boating, swimming, dining, and more.
New York State Parks has rolled out new initiatives to encourage greater safety (and fun!) out on
the water. Free stickers and decals are being given out to paddlesport enthusiasts. The “If Found” Stickers are for identification of owners of non-powered watercraft such as kayaks, canoes, rowboats, standup paddleboards, and sailboats.
As boaters head north on their vessels towards Lake Champlain, or tow their trailers up I-87 to Lake George, Lake Placid and other destinations, a beautiful treasure is often overlooked. Saratoga Lake, the closest trailerable powerboatfriendly lake north of Albany and the Hudson Valley, provides great recreational fun, whether it be cruising its beautiful water, sailing on its smooth surface, kayaking/paddling up the Fish Creek, swimming, or even indulging in something called “waterflight”.
