Yacht owners sue City of Tacoma, companies for damage

Yacht owners sue City of Tacoma, companies for damage
News from Bellingham Herald:

A Tacoma couple are suing the city and three construction-related businesses, contending sandblasting debris blew off the Murray Morgan Bridge during a 2011 windstorm and damaged their 56-foot yacht.

Zachary and Carmen Bryson, who are represented by Forsberg & Umlauf of Seattle, have filed the suit in Pierce County Superior Court. Their insurance company, Red Shield, also is a plaintiff.

Along with the city, PCL Construction, Safway Services and Purcell Painting & Coatings are named as defendants. The city hired PCL to renovate the bridge over the Thea Foss Waterway. Purcell later was hired as a subcontractor to sandblast and paint the span. Safway provided scaffolding and plastic sheeting meant to contain debris from the sandblasting.

The Murray Morgan Bridge, also known as the 11th Street Bridge, opened to traffic in 1913 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. The $ 57.4 million rehabilitation project began in 2010 and is scheduled to be completed in April.

The Brysons and their insurance carrier seek unspecified damages to cover repairs to the yacht, other costs and reimbursement of all amounts paid by Red Shield to the Brysons or on their behalf.

Dave Purcell, owner of Purcell Painting & Coatings, called the lawsuit frivolous. Attempts to reach Tacoma City Attorney Elizabeth Pauli were not successful. The c…………… continues on Bellingham Herald

City Council Discuss Boat Docks on City Property

City Council Discuss Boat Docks on City Property
News from Patch.com:

The issue surrounding the docks owned by the residents who live on First Street was discussed at the Wednesday night’s council meeting.

Mayor Alan Burchill, council member Randy Morrissette and council member John Hoggatt recused themselves, leaving the remaining council members to discuss what to do about the issue.

The current municipal code concerning the docks has not been changed in the past 31 years. According to state records, the railroad was officially abandoned in 1974, and the city of Hudson purchased and acquired the abandoned railway in 1988.

According to city attorney Catherine Munkittrick, any time that there is something on city property, there is potential for exposing the city to liability. If there were to be a claim, homeowners might not have insurance that would cover it because it’s private property on private land, which is not included on the statement of their property.

Sarah Atkins Hoggatt, married to Council Member John Hoggatt and is one of the current dock owners, spoke during the meeting.

“In the past the city had said that the docks were grandfathered in and that having docks were ok,” Atkins-Hoggatt said, “Regardless of the land in question, the city acquired the land and they were aware of the dock that had been there for generations.”

Mitchell Hobbins, who lives on Second Street, said that beli…………… continues on Patch.com

Atlantic City boat shows sees modest increase in attendance, continues today
News from Press of Atlantic City:

ATLANTIC CITY — Expensive leisurely activities like boating are often the first to suffer from a down economy and the last to rebound.

The bad news: This week’s Progressive Insurance Atlantic City Boat Show at the Atlantic City Convention Center is still down, in terms of scale and turnout, from its peak years ago, the show’s manager Jon Pritko said.

The good news: This year’s show is about 30 percent larger than 2010’s low.

“We are still down from the peak years, but we are seeing an increase,” Pritko said. “We have new exhibitors and some of our exhibitors have expanded, which has resulted in more boats and a larger show overall.”

Pritko said the five-day show was expected to draw between 36,000 and 38,000 visitors. This was also down from the peak years when attendance would surpass 48,000, he said, but a slight increase from last year’s roughly 34,000.

The fluctuation of the boating industry is comparable to the housing market, Pritko said. But while many people refrain from buying and selling homes in a down market, many boating enthusiasts still buy boats — they typically just make adjustments to the kind of boats they get, either in style or price.

“For a lot of people — like fishermen, waterskiers and wakeboarders — boating is a way to express themselves and relieve stress,” Pritko said. “And life i…………… continues on Press of Atlantic City

Atlantic City boat show underway
News from MyCentralJersey.com:

Boat lovers are already flocking to Atlantic City for the Progressive Insurance Atlantic City Boat Show at the Atlantic City Convention Center. The show opened on Wednesday and continues through Sunday. Show manager Jon Pritko said attendance for the first two days is already up over last year’s opening.

The big difference from last year’s show, said Pritko, is that the 2012 show is 30 percent larger, in terms of both floor space and exhibitors.

The show features hundreds of boats — from luxury cruisers and yachts to sport fishers, performance boats, pontoon inflatables and personal watercraft.

There is also a special section devoted to sailboats and sailing gear. Visitors can board and compare hundreds of boat brands and models from dozens of manufacturers and dealers.

“A big part of this year’s show is education, it runs the gamut for the novice boater to the very advanced and everyone in between,” said Pritko. “It’s very hands on and great for the the do-it-yourselfer.”

Self-sufficient types can find plenty of tips and advice at Fred’s Shed which offers daily sessions on maintaining a gas or diesel engine, installing marine electronics, protecting boats from the elements and fuel economy. One-on-one sessions are also available with expert service technicians.

There are also daily boating education sessions hosted…………… continues on MyCentralJersey.com

Atlantic City Boat Show bigger and better for experienced and new boaters
News from Press of Atlantic City:

The winter of 2012 in South Jersey has been a particularly mild one, and organizers behind the Progressive Insurance Atlantic City Boat Show are hoping thoughts of spring can equal more traffic – and more boat sales. The boat show, which kicked off Wednesday at the Atlantic City Convention Center, will run through Sunday, Feb. 5, and features a full schedule of family-friendly activities.

“It’s fun for everybody in the family,” says Jon Pritko, who manages the show for the National Marine Manufacturers Association. “There is something for everybody to do. It gets people thinking of boating season a little early.”

The boat show, which is estimated to be about 25 percent larger this year than past shows, will feature hundreds of boats and thousands of boating accessories, as well as games, seminars, children’s events and more than $ 30,000 in available prizes.

Available boats range from $ 300 kayaks to yachts that retail for more than $ 1 million. But Pritko hopes new boaters will be drawn to boats in the $ 30,000 to $ 40,000 range, which can be financed for about $ 250 to $ 300 a month.

“We want people to go, ‘Hey, you know, boating is affordable,’” Pritko said. “And it’s nice because you don’t have a sales person pressuring you. People sometimes get intimidated by that.”

First signs of boat show arrive in Atlantic City
News from Press of Atlantic City:

Hundreds of shrink-wrapped boats have been arriving at the Atlantic City Convention Center in preparation for the city’s annual indoor boat show, which begins Wednesday and runs through Sunday.

The Progressive Insurance Atlantic City Boat Show will fill up nearly 250,000 square feet of space at the convention center, including yachts, power boats, fishing boats, personal watercrafts, sailboats and pontoons.

Setting up takes several days and, in some cases, heavy machinery, such as a 10,000 pound forklift or a 35-ton marine hoist, said Jon Pritko, show organizer for the National Marine Manufacturers Association.

“Some of the larger boats, the tops have to be disassembled and re-erected,” he said.

The boats began being moved into the convention center on Saturday morning, he said.

“It really is an impressive sight, especially to see some of the boats coming in off the road,” he said.

The boat show will also include about 250 exhibitors, he said.

Pritko said the show is about the boating lifestyle as well as promoting boats and boating.

“It’s looking at the world from a different vantage point,” he said.

The National Marine Manufacturers Association estimates new boat sales increased about 5 percent in 2011. This increase followed several years of declines, including a drop of 10 percent…………… continues on Press of Atlantic City
