Puma’s Mar Mostro

Earlier this week in Newport, Rhode Island, PUMA launched the Mar Mostro, a Volvo Open 70 yacht that will speed for nine months during the Volvo Ocean Race 2011-2012. Skippered by Ken Read, the American Made boat was designed in Spain by Juan Yacht Design, and features Berg propulsion. Aesthetically, the boat is a sight to see on the water. A black ship with vibrant red octopus tentacles creeping up into a sail featuring PUMA‘s new Aqua Cat logo. It took artist Dean Loucks 600 hours to hand paint the graphics onto the 70 foot, 30,864 lb carbon fiber sailing vessel. Respect goes out to the PUMA Ocean Racing team, who move at up to speeds of 40 knots chasing storms and wind for this 37,000 + mile race.

Loss of the Pilot Boat Jacob A. Westervelt (No. 19)

This is an essay written by my Grandfather, Norman Tengstrom, about the sinking of the Pilot Boat Jacob A. Westervelt (No. 19) and death of my great great great grandfather Captain John O’Keefe off the New York Harbor. I also included a gallery of the Captain’s log at the end (amazing script).

“The New York Pilot boat Jacob A. Westervelt was run down and sunk by the New Hamburg screw-steamer Saxonia on Tuesday morning, April 20, 1858, her Captain, John O’Keefe, drowned.  Captain O’Keefe was one of the most intrepid and capable of our pilots, and was a brother of Maurice O’Keefe, deputy U.S. Marshal.”
