Leopard 46 Powercat
The Leopard 46 Powercat looked a little out of place when I met her just after the 2022 Miami boat show. For one thing, owing to Leopard’s sailing roots, she was docked among the blowboats despite being very much a powerboat, with twin 370-horsepower

On a train from Vancouver to Montreal are 60 tons of empty drinking bottles, laundry detergent containers, plastic bags, nettings and other abandoned vessels and tools that now presume the role of discards. To the naked eye, it merely looks like a bu
