We try our best to make our activities fun while increasing our boating skill set.

Tall Ship is lost

posted Apr 2, 2015, 6:41 AM by Bob Mueller

One of the Tall ships that took part in the Battle of Lake Erie Reenactment may be lost at sea.  All hands had to abandon ship.  A locator and tracking beacon has been placed aboard.  Hopefully she survives and can be towed back to port when the weather clears up.

Berea Sail and Power Squadron

Berea Power Squadron has officially changed it's name to Berea Sail and Power Squadron.  The website is adorned with a new masthead which features the new name, and was brought into compliance with the National Branding Manual.  I welcome all comments and criticisms on the new design: bob.mueller@bereapowersquadron.org.

We may be exploring the possibility of getting a new URL for this website.  Some of the URL's that I explored, that are available: 
www.bereasailandpowersquadron.org
www.bereasailandpower.org
www.bsaps.org

Personally, I like bsaps.org, only because it is short.  I always though our current URL is much too long.

Kids, don't try this at home....

Technically, this is a boat.  This is what happens when cabin fever starts to rise...

Hats off the United States Coast Guard for helping everyone, even if the victims story is a bit suspicious.

Always make sure you're motor mounts are tightened up well.

USCG rescues 3 near Kellys Island

posted Jun 19, 2014, 4:42 AM by Bob Mueller   [ updated Jun 19, 2014, 4:47 AM ]

The Coast Guard rescued three men from Lake Erie early Wednesday after their fishing boat began taking on water and capsized just north of Kelley's Island.  For more information:

The article mentions the benefits of using a VHF Marine radio for distress calls over using a Cell Phone.  Let me suggest one more reason:  There are many areas of Lake Erie in U.S. waters, where your cell phone will switch to a Canadian Carrier.  Just last weekend, my wife's phone switched to Canada while standing on South Bass Island!  While dialing 911 will get you to the authorities in Canada, it may delay the response if your position is in U.S. Waters.
