Maritime Community Remembers Henry Reynolds

Henry E. Reynolds, who had been a member of the maritime community, died suddenly of a heart attack on January 28, while working on assignment in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Reynolds, 53, began his maritime career when he arrived in South Florida in the early 1970s as a crew member on a sailing schooner. In 1981 he played an intricate role in the startup of Titan, a small, struggling salvage company, from where he moved on to Ellen & Co. as a steamship agent and, later, as agency manager. Reynolds then rejoined Titan in 1996, where he had remained as job coordinator for the last four years.

Falmouth Cruise Business Up 72%

Increasing cruise ship business brought visitors of 51 different nationalities to Falmouth during 2003 – a number that could rise even higher this year. Over the space of just three years, the port’s cruise business has risen by 72% - up from 25 ships in 2002, to 39 last year and 43 already booked for 2004. The majority of visitors are currently American, followed by British and German passengers but many other nationalities also book onto the cruises that come to the port.

Making Noise

While shipboard noise is an obvious concern to personnel operating or luxuriating onboard, increasing attention is being paid to the effects of ship-generated noise on the ocean environment. Consequently, this should catch the attention of ship designers, builders, owners and outfitters as the topic inevitably starts making the conference and legislative rounds. Headlining efforts in the U.S. is the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC)

In the early evening hours twenty years ago in a shipyard in Brisbane, Australia the sleek hull of the 192 foot motor sailing yacht The Other Woman effortlessly slid down the launch ways into the Brisbane River. The Owner, Ed Cantor, told his guests as he watched his "Other Woman" hit the water "she looks so beautiful without the masts, do we really have to put them on?”. The evening and festivities went on with the question looming
