Whether you have a power or sailboat, inboard or outboard, get ready for the season with the Spring Commissioning Safety Checklist from the Boat Owners Association of the United States.

Before you launch:
• Inspect and lubricate seacocks. Hoses and hose clamps should be inspected and replaced as necessary.
• Replace deteriorated anodes.

• Inspect prop(s) for dings, pitting and distortion. Make sure cotter pins are secure. Grip the prop and try moving the shaft - if it's loose, the cutlass bearing may need to be replaced.

Tall? Grande? Venti?
Sure, it might sound a bit more cosmopolitan to order a “venti” cup of joe, but for me, choosing among good old small, medium and large just seems a bit easier.
Marvin Belknap, owner of The Coffee Shop in Oregon, agrees, however he’s made sure patrons have no shortage of tasty choices at the shop, which opened Feb. 23 at 3555 Navarre Ave., in Oregon.
A true “coffee house,” the shop offers latte, cappuccino, espresso, and regular and decaf coffee. There are also café mocha and white mocha and the house specialty, the Coffee Shop Mocha.
