New Charleston Water Taxi Catamaran Powered by Yamaha F200s with Digital Electronic Control

FORMER 8,700-HOUR OUTBOARD OWNERS LOOK FORWARD TO QUIETER OPERATION AND IMPROVED FUEL EFFICIENCY

Owners Scott Connelly and Chip Deaton, who have powered the Charleston Water Taxi with two sets of Yamaha F150 outboards that have run 6,800 hours* and 8,700 hours* respectively, have decided to power their newest vessel with Yamaha F200s based upon their experience with the reliability of Yamaha inline four-cylinder outboards.
“As much as we rely on our F150s as true workhorses, we were excited to be able to choose Yamaha’s F200 outboards for the Dorothy Marie,” said Connelly, of the 40-foot Corinthian catamaran they added to their fleet. “With digital electronic control, we can look forward to even smoother operation shifting in and out of gear, reduced rigging components and maintenance – all fantastic benefits when you’re on the water running a high-hour commercial operation like ours.”

Yamaha plans to monitor the performance of the new, twin 16-valve DOHC in-line four F200 application under commercial load, and anticipates the advanced technology design and impressive power-to–weight ratio – as well as improved fuel economy – to be big assets in daily operations for the Charleston Water Taxi.

Umbrella Insurance: The Safety Net You Need

The realm of insurance is just about the most difficult maze to get through. Each and every day it seems the financial and insurance industries are changing.

More and more, the words “umbrella insurance” are coming up in both conversation and in advertising on TV. Before getting lost in another “maze,” it is best to look into exactly what umbrella insurance means and why you should consider it for yourself.
