NauticStar 223 DC Sport Deck
Posted: February 1, 2013
The new NauticStar 223 DC maximizes room, value and fun in a mid-sized packageIn 2012, we tested the NauticStar 203 DC Sport Deck powered by a Yamaha F115 and loved its performance, use of space and fun-in-the-sun quotient. For 2013, there’s a new, larger version called the 223 DC that really hits the sweet spot, giving owners even more capability and amenities.
Usually a boat has to be 24 feet or so before you get a head compartment, which for some families is a deal-killer, especially if kids are involved. But the 22-foot, 7-inch 223 DC has one that features a corner-opening door for easy entry, and it’s a grown-up-sized compartment that has a vanity for writers primping during video shoots (busted). A lot of deckboats have low gunwale heights, but the 223 DC has a deep cockpit that’s especially noticeable in the bowrider section, which gives a 6-footer like me plenty of legroom when reclining. The expansive foredeck can be used as a casting deck and can be fitted with an
optional fishing chair and a 24v Minn Kota Edge trolling motor with a foot control. The anchor locker sits pretty far back on the deck, and the 223 DC could use a centerline pop-up cleat to tie off the anchor line. For getting aboard after beachcombing, there’s a concealed ladder angled off to the starboard side.
You need a cooler on a deckboat, and you can normally find one under the cockpit seats, but NauticStar designers placed a carry-on 25-quart Igloo out of the way in the console walk-through, and there’s enough space in the open-air alcove to lift the lid without sliding it out. There’s another built-in model up front. For washing up, there’s a standard freshwater sink atop the port-side console with a generous 9-gallon tank.
Our test boat is powered by a Yamaha F150 four-stroke that’s a good, economical match for this boat. The Air Assist Chine hull design has vents on both sides of the hull that combine with its relatively shallow 13-degree deadrise to give the boat great out-of-the-hole performance. The 223 DC got on plane quickly with very little bowrise in just 2.8 seconds — a very useful trick for escaping shallow water. Time to 30 mph was a brisk 5.9 seconds, and we reached a top speed of 45.3 mph. The 223 DC is rated for up to 225 hp, and boaters looking to generate some wind in their face are in luck, thanks to Yamaha’s new F200 four-stroke, which sports an in-line 4-cylinder configuration. It’s 119 pounds lighter than Yamaha’s V6 version, which was part of the F225/F250 family.
Deckboats often feature a trimaran hull design to support a wide beam that’s carried all the way forward, but the 223 DC is based on a V-hull design with a sharper entry that helps slice through the chop. During our sea trial and photo shoot on Lake Lanier, north of Atlanta, conditions were rough enough that we had to run to the far side of the huge lake to find calm water. During the transit, the hull worked the chop well and gave us a better ride in these conditions than I would have anticipated with such a flat deadrise.
Hydraulic steering by Sea Star comes standard and makes the 223 a pleasure to drive. It corners well without leaning over all the way to the gunwales, which is what happens with deep-V hull designs and can make inexperienced boaters nervous. Our boat has the Teleflex X-Treme shift-control cables, which have a splined design that reduces friction and are the next best thing to electronic controls.
The NauticStar 223 DC is well suited to a wide variety of activities. It comes standard with a screw-in ski pylon and has a large in-floor locker with a rubber mat for keeping skis from getting scratched. Ski spotters/spectators have a relaxing perch with a port-side chaise lounge. A unique feature is a removable backrest for rearward-facing lounging behind the captain’s helm bucket. After the ski run is done, or for general boarding, a flip-up cushion on the starboard side allows entry into the cockpit without forcing you to step on the Leather Touch upholstery.
In addition to the optional trolling motor harness and a forward pedestal fishing chair, the fishing package comes with a forward livewell that’s plumbed into a 22-gallon cooler that also serves as a step-up to the bow deck. A 66-gallon fuel tank gives the NauticStar 223 DC plenty of range for cruising to remote fishing spots.
For a boat that measures 22 feet, 7 inches, it has big entertaining capabilities, with seating for 10 passengers in the bow and cockpit, which is completely encircled with seating. For snack presentation, there’s a large removable cockpit table that has dedicated storage in the head compartment. And for beverage parking, there are 11 cupholders scattered about, meaning that even with a full boat one guest can have two drinks going at the same time. On cool days, passengers in the cockpit will appreciate the tall, curved, tinted-glass windshield and bifold dam that blocks air in the console walk-through. A standard four-speaker Infinity JBL stereo has an MP3 input, so you can bring your own party mix.
The 223 DC’s extensive list of standard features includes items such as LED courtesy lights and a Bimini top, but to properly equip it, add the recessed shower for rinsing off after swimming and a pumpout head. At the helm station, the captain has full instrumentation and an ergonomically correct seating position on the flip-up bolster bucket seat. The rocker switches are lighted, so you always know which ones are engaged, and a thoughtful addition is the master power switch that allows you to make sure everything is off with one touch, to prevent your battery from dying. Although the dash is compact to conserve space, there’s room for an optional, flush-mounted Humminbird 385C color fishfinder/GPS display.

What we liked
Styling, Stability of the hull design, Fishing features, Head compartment, Handling and performance
What we would change
We would like a double-wide captain’s seat, so my wife and I can sit closer together when we are running.
Why we bought it
Although we’ve belonged to two boat clubs in the past, this is the first boat we have ever owned. When we were looking at boats, we wanted something that would be stable for the kids and be capable enough to handle the waters of Tampa Bay. Our house is located at the mouth of the Alafia River, where it’s calm enough to tow the boys around on an inflatable tube. As they get older, we’ll probably get into skiing. Every once in a while, all of my neighbors get in their boats and head to places such as Beer Can Island or Shell Island. We’ve made trips to the Skyway Bridge and St. Pete Pier and like to explore the many islands and beaches in our area. We’ve had the boat out when conditions have been choppy, and it handled it really well. We like to fish for trout, redfish and snook, and the 223 DC makes a good, stable fishing platform, and the large livewell holds plenty of bait. At certain times during the year, the tides can get really low here, but our boat can take off and run in shallow water, which is a real plus. Thunder Marine gives us great service and has made our first boat-buying experience a good one.

PLAYBOY INTERVIEW: RICHARD DAWKINS
Richard Dawkins, the patron saint of nonbelievers, caused a stir earlier this year during a debate with the Archbishop of Canterbury, who noted that his opponent is often described as the world’s most famous atheist. “Not by me,” Dawkins replied before providing his standard explanation—a supreme being is possible but highly improbable—which led a London newspaper to proclaim that the world’s most notorious skeptic was hedging his bets. Far from it. Dawkins, at 71, remains an unbending and sharp-tongued critic of religious dogmatism. Like any scientist who challenges the Bible and its lyrical version of creation, he spends a great deal of time defending Charles Darwin’s theory that all life, including humans, evolved over eons through natural selection, rather than being molded 10,000 years ago by an intelligent but unseen hand.Dawkins, who retired from Oxford University in 2008 after 13 years as a professor of public understanding of science (meaning he lectured and wrote books), stepped into the limelight in 1976, at the age of 35, with the publication of The Selfish Gene. The book, which has sold more than a million copies, argues persuasively that evolution takes place at the genetic level; individuals die, but the fittest [url=http://cheapcoachfactorybackpacks2i.webs.com/]http://cheapcoachfactorybackpacks2i.webs.com/[/url] genes survive. Dawkins has since written 10 more best-sellers, including most recently The Magic of Reality: How We Know What’s Really True. Since 9/11 he has become more outspoken about his skepticism, culminating in The God Delusion, which provides the foundation for his continuing debates with believers. Published in 2006, the book has become Dawkins’s most popular, available in 31 languages with 2 million copies sold. That same year he founded the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science “to support scientific education, critical thinking and evidence-based understanding of the natural world in the quest to overcome religious fundamentalism, superstition, intolerance and suffering.” His books have made Dawkins a popular speaker and champion of critical thinking. In March he spoke to 20,000 people at the Reason Rally on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.; a week later he was at Fort Bragg in North Carolina, offering encouragement to the first gathering of atheistic and agnostic soldiers ever allowed on a U.S. military base.Dawkins lives in Oxford with his third wife, Lalla Ward, best known for her role as Romana on Doctor Who. But he is rarely home for long, and Contributing Editor Chip Rowe had to travel to three cities to complete their conversation. He reports: “Dawkins is a careful speaker with little patience for foolishness (which is everywhere, especially among the faithful and the occasional journalist), but he straightens and his eyes dance when he is asked to explain an evolutionary principle. We met for the first time in Las Vegas at a convention for skeptics. We talked again when he visited New York to lecture at Cooper Union and in Washington, where he spoke at Howard University, checked in with the director of his foundation, thanked its volunteers and visited the impressive human origins exhibit at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History. During a tour with the exhibit’s curator, Dawkins looked pained anytime he was compelled to chat, glancing furtively at the fossilized eye candy in every direction, [url=http://www.ccoachfactoryoutlets.com/]online coach factory outlet[/url] including a wall of progressively modern skulls. At one point two young women approached. ‘This is Richard Dawkins!’ one told the other, wide-eyed. I suppose it’s like bumping into Bono at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.”PLAYBOY: What is the A pin you’re wearing?DAWKINS: It stands for “atheist.”PLAYBOY: Like a scarlet letter?DAWKINS: It’s not meant to reflect that. It’s part of my foundation’s Out Campaign. It means stand out and reach out, as well as come out for the beliefs you hold, and give the reasons. It’s a bit analogous to gay people coming out.PLAYBOY: Although atheists can marry one another.DAWKINS: True.PLAYBOY: Is there a better word for a nonbeliever than atheist? Darwin preferred agnostic. Some have suggested humanist, naturalist, nontheist.DAWKINS: Darwin chose agnostic for tactical reasons. He said the common man was not ready for atheism. There’s a lovely story the comedian Julia Sweeney tells about her own journey from devout Catholicism to atheism. After she’d finally decided she was an atheist, something appeared about it in the newspaper. Her mother phoned her in hysterics and said something like “I don’t mind you not believing in God, but an atheist?” [laughs] The word bright was suggested by a California couple. I think it’s rather a good word, though most of my atheist friends think it suggests religious people are dims. I say, “What’s wrong with that?” [laughs]PLAYBOY: You’ve described yourself as a “tooth fairy” agnostic. What is that?DAWKINS: Rather than say he’s an atheist, a friend of mine says, “I’m a tooth fairy agnostic,” meaning he can’t disprove God but thinks God is about as likely as the tooth fairy.PLAYBOY: So you don’t completely rule out the idea of a supreme being. Critics see that as leaving an opening.DAWKINS: You can think so, if you think there’s an opening for the tooth fairy.PLAYBOY: It sounds like the argument made by Bertrand Russell, who said that while he could claim a teapot orbited the sun between Earth and Mars, he couldn’t expect anyone to believe him just because they couldn’t prove him wrong.DAWKINS: It’s the same idea. It’s a little unfair to say it’s like the tooth fairy. I think a particular god like Zeus or Jehovah is as unlikely as the tooth fairy, but the idea of some kind of creative intelligence is not quite so ridiculous.PLAYBOY: So you aren’t taking Pascal up on his wager. He was the 17th century philosopher who argued it’s a smarter bet to believe in God, because if you’re wrong——DAWKINS: The cost of failure is very high. But what if you choose the wrong god to believe in? What if you get up there and it’s not Jehovah but Baal? [laughs] And even if you pick the right god, why should God be so obsessive about you believing in him? Plus, any god worth its salt is going to realize you’re feigning. The odds are extremely low, but nevertheless it’s worth it because the reward is extremely high. But you may also be wasting your life. You go to church every Sunday, you do penance, you wear sackcloth and ashes. You have a horrible life, and then you die [url=http://www.ccoachfactoryoutlets.com/]coach factory[/url] and that’s it.PLAYBOY: Assume there is a god and you were given the chance to ask him one question. What would it be?DAWKINS: I’d ask, “Sir, why did you go to such lengths to hide yourself?”PLAYBOY: Do you have any deeply religious friends?DAWKINS: No. It’s not that I shun them; it’s that the circles I move in tend to be educated, intelligent circles, and there aren’t any religious people among them that [url=http://www.ccoachfactoryoutlets.com/]coach factory outlet[/url] I know of. I’m friendly with some bishops and vicars who kind of believe in something and enjoy the music and the stained glass.PLAYBOY: Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking reference God in their writings. Are they using the word in the sense of an intelligent designer?DAWKINS: Certainly not. They use god in a poetic, metaphorical sense. Einstein in particular loved using the word to convey an idea of mystery, which I think all decent scientists do. But nowadays we’ve learned better than to use the word god because it will be willfully misunderstood, as Einstein was. And poor Einstein got quite cross about it. “I do not believe in a personal god,” he said over and over again. In a way he was asking for it. Hawking uses it in a similar way in A Brief History of Time. In his famous last line he says that if we understood the universe, “then we would know the mind of God.” Once again he is using god in the Einsteinian, not the religious sense. And so Hawking’s The Grand Design, in which he says the universe could have come from nothing, is not him turning away from God; his beliefs are exactly the same.PLAYBOY: You’ve had a lot of fun deconstructing the idea of the intelligent designer. You point out that God made a cheetah fast enough to catch a gazelle and a gazelle fast enough to outrun a cheetah——DAWKINS: Yes. Is God a sadist?PLAYBOY: And bad design such as the fact we breathe and eat through the same tube, making it easy to choke to death.DAWKINS: Or the laryngeal nerve, which loops around an artery in the chest and then goes back up to the larynx.PLAYBOY: Not very efficient.DAWKINS: Not in a giraffe, anyway.PLAYBOY: You argue Christians worship a “created God.” Some Christians respond that their God isn’t created; he’s eternal.DAWKINS: You could say the same of the universe. You could say elephants support the world on their backs. There have always been elephants. I declare it by fiat.PLAYBOY: The attacks of 9/11 seemed to make you more militant about your atheism, as if you had finally lost patience.DAWKINS: There was a certain amount of that. A lot of people in the world felt a desire to stand up and be counted. Any suggestion of anti-Americanism in my mind vanished. Ich bin ein Amerikaner. Then George W. Bush destroyed that. But it was also an anti-Islamic and an antireligious moment for me because I was nauseated by the way the response to “Allahu Akbar” was “God is with us,” or whatever the Christians said—the sound of Christian leaders in America uniting in support of the force that led to the crisis in the first place.PLAYBOY: You blame 9/11 on belief in the afterlife.DAWKINS: Yes. Normally when an aircraft is hijacked, there’s an assumption that the hijackers want to go on living. It changes the game if the hijackers look forward to death because it will get them into the best part of paradise.PLAYBOY: You mean the part with the 72 virgins the Koran says await martyrs.DAWKINS: Right. Young men who are too unattractive to get a woman in the real world go for the ones in paradise. But my point is these people really believe what they say they believe, whereas most Christians don’t. If you talk to dying Christians, they aren’t looking forward to it.PLAYBOY: What will happen when you die?DAWKINS: Well, I shall either be buried or be cremated.PLAYBOY: Funny. But without faith in an afterlife, in what do you take comfort [url=http://cheapcoachfactorybackpacks2i.webs.com/]cheap coach backpacks[/url] in times of despair?DAWKINS: Human love and companionship. But in more thoughtful, cerebral moments, I take—comfort is not quite the right word, but I draw strength from reflecting on what a privilege it is to be alive and what a privilege it is to have a brain that’s capable in its limited way of understanding why I exist and of reveling in the beauty of the world and the beauty of the products of evolution. The magnificence of the universe and the sense of smallness that gives us in space and in geologically deep time is humbling but in a strangely comforting way. It’s nice to feel you’re part of a hugely bigger picture.PLAYBOY: Are you concerned that your opponents might fake a deathbed conversion, as creationists have tried to do with Darwin?DAWKINS: What’s slightly more worrying is the Antony Flew effect. Flew was an atheistic British philosopher who had an old-age conversion. It seems he went gaga. You can’t guard against that.PLAYBOY: So if it happens we should assume you’ve lost it.DAWKINS: Yes. After my friend Christopher Hitchens was diagnosed with cancer, he was asked if he might have a conversion. He said that if he did, it wouldn’t be the real him. What’s rather wicked is when religious apologists exploit that, as they did in the case of Flew, who in his old age was persuaded to put his name to a book saying that he’d been converted to a form of deism. Not only did he not write the book, he didn’t even read it. [laughs]PLAYBOY: Your call for militant atheism is one reason you were featured as a character on an episode of South Park. The show’s creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, had been accused of being atheists, so they thought of the most militant atheist they could skewer.DAWKINS: It’s the only South Park episode I’ve seen. There was an attempt at something approaching satire in the idea of an imagined future in which different sects of atheists are fighting each other. But most of that episode was ridiculous in the sense that what they had the cartoon figure of me doing, like buggering the bald transvestite—— 1234Next

Playboy Interview: Chinese Artist Ai Weiwei .com
The artist Ai Weiwei (pronounced “eye way way”—Ai is his surname) is the Chinese government’s worst nightmare: aninternationally revered art star who uses his work and celebrity to advocatefor democracy and free speech in a nation with neither. The government hasemployed a draconian campaign to silence him. Ai is under constantsurveillance. He has been threatened, placed under house arrest and physicallyattacked by a police officer. Ai’s incendiary blog, read by thousands ofChinese citizens, disappeared one day. And so did he: In 2011, state policegrabbed him at the airport, threw a black bag over his head and drove him to anundisclosed location, where he languished for 81 days in a tiny prison cell.Despite these attacks, Ai has continued his virulent criticism of the -ChineseCommunist leadership, which he deems repressive, immoral and illegitimate.Ai’s dissidence is particularly discomfiting to the [url=http://bagsoutletsonlines.com/]coach factory outlet online[/url] Chinese government as it attempts to retain its stranglehold on its citizens while also cementing its position as a global economic powerhouse. Ai’s domestic and international influence is growing. Using art, technology and civil disobedience in his antigovernment campaign, he continues to embarrass the regime—and threaten it. Most observers agree that if it weren’t for his international celebrity, Ai would still be imprisoned, like Nobel Peace Prize -winner [url=http://bagsoutletsonlines.com/]coach factory online[/url] Liu Xiaobo, who is serving an 11-year sentence, or he’d be exiled, like blind dissident Chen Guangcheng. The last time Ai was imprisoned there were worldwide protests; world leaders including Hillary Clinton called for his release.Ai’s political activism and art areinformed by his tumultuous childhood. His father, Ai Qing, one of China’s mostrevered poets, studied in Paris before returning to China in 1932, when he wasarrested by Chiang Kai-shek’s Nationalist Party. With the Communist takeover,the elder Ai was for a time in favor of Chairman Mao Tse-tung’s regime. Then hewrote a poem that extolled the virtues of a culture [url=http://bagsoutletsonlines.com/]coach factory outlet[/url] that celebrated rather thanrepressed multiple voices. For this he was exiled to a “reeducation” camp,where he was humiliated, beaten and forced to clean toilets for nearly twodecades. Ai Weiwei spent his early years in the camp.The Beijing National Stadium ? 2011 Peter23, WikipediaAfter the Cultural Revolution, Ai attended the Beijing Film Academy. In 1981 he left for the United States, where he studied English, worked odd jobs and made art. He returned to China after 12 years and worked as an architect, artist and antiques dealer. He gained international attention for his collaboration with the architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron on the design of Beijing’s National Stadium, nicknamed the Bird’s Nest, built for the 2008 Olympics. His reputation in the fine-art world grew too. His controversial pieces include a series of photographs in which he uses the international hand gesture for “fuck you” to send a not very subtle message to the Chinese government. He smashed Neolithic pottery, created a giant sculpture out of Qing dynasty stools, built a breathtaking art installation in Munich out of 9,000 children’s backpacks to commemorate the thousands of students killed when their schools collapsed in the 2008 Sichuan earthquake (he blames the high death toll on the Chinese government for allowing the schools’ shoddy construction) and spread a sea of 100 million porcelain sunflower seeds across a gallery in the Tate Modern in London.After being released from prison in June 2011 Ai was placed under house arrest. By 2012 he was no longer confined to his Beijing compound, but the government held his passport, preventing him from leaving [url=http://coachfactoryoutlet2w.webs.com/]Coach factory outlet[/url] the country. He was unable to attend the opening of a major survey of his work at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C.Since Ai couldn’t leave China, -Playboy sent Contributing Editor David Sheff to meet him there. Sheff, who has interviewed Representative Barney Frank, journalist Fareed Zakaria and Apple’sSteve Jobs for us, reports, “Over the course of the days we spent together, Iaccompanied Ai on his daily walks through a Beijing park. He said he walks sohe’ll be in better physical shape if he’s arrested again. Following thesewalks, each afternoon he visits his young son, who was born in 2009 to agirlfriend; Ai has been married to artist Lu Qing for 17 years. Though he liveswith the constant threat of arrest, each evening after his time with his son Aitakes his place in front of a computer and spends six or more hours writingillegal Twitter messages to 200,000 followers. Helped by a coterie of hackers, he manages to circumvent the government’s ‘Great Firewall’ to send out missives about what he considers his government’s latest sins.” PLAYBOY: Other renowned Chinese dissidentshave been either imprisoned or exiled. Why are you allowed to remain free?AI: I don’t know if I am free. There’s athreat always that any minute I could be arrested. Why they [url=http://bagsoutletsonlines.com/]coach factory outlet[/url] don’t arrest menow, I don’t know. I don’t know why they arrested me the last time. I don’tknow why they let me go after three months. They said I would be in for 10years.PLAYBOY: Do you know why they’re holdingyour passport?AI: There has been no explanation. I don’tknow why, because if they don’t want me to leave the country, they could stopme at the airport. The government doesn’t explain. They don’t have to explain.The Communists who run China picture themselves as above the rest of society—asthe best men, a superman society. They believe they are made of specialmaterials. That is their own words. They’re elite. They tell you only what theywant to tell you. So of course you will never get any clear answer about anyevent that happened in the past 60 years. My father, when he was sent away,never knew who made the decision, how the decision was made or why. Threehundred thousand intellectuals were crushed by a single political moment withthe Cultural Revolution. None of them got a clear answer about why. Now it’s decadeslater, and what surprises me most is that after being in power all this time,this government should have built a better society, one that’s more open. Theyshould trust the people. They should explain and discuss and negotiate. Allthose things are completely lacking in this society.PLAYBOY: Do you assume you were freed andfor the moment remain free because of pressure from the internationalcommunity?AI: Maybe if the government could get awaywith it, without anyone knowing, you would not see me again.PLAYBOY: Is it gratifying to know thatHillary Clinton and other world leaders called for your release from prison?AI: It’s very surprising. Yes, it was verygood. But there are so many people arrested. And worse than arrested. Why doesno one speak about them? Just yesterday the number reached 92 Tibetans who haveburned themselves to death because of the Chinese oppression of -Tibet. Mostwere Buddhist monks. I don’t see much international outcry for them. It’s ahopeless cry for them, and no one listens.PLAYBOY: Then perhaps your celebrity savesyou, the support from political leaders and other prominent people from theWest. Last November Elton John shocked a Beijing audience by dedicating aconcert to you. Did that surprise you?AI: I was so happy but also shocked. Such apure man. That’s not done; people don’t say my name out loud in public likethat. The audience would never think somebody would have that kind of free,clear expression in a situation [url=http://coachfactoryoutlet2w.webs.com/]coach factory online outlet[/url] like that. It will always remain in my mind.PLAYBOY: Do any prominent Chinese in Chinastand up for you and other -dissidents?AI: No. It’s too dangerous. But there aresome in the young generation of artists who do. Of course they have all beentaken to the police station.PLAYBOY: While you were in prison, were youaware of the protests and calls for your release?AI: I had no idea. I was just a littlepiece dropped into a dark corner, into a hole.PLAYBOY: You didn’t know if anyone wasworrying about you?AI: No, but of course you know your familyis.PLAYBOY: Why is one man—an artist—such athreat to the government of a nation with 1.3 billion people and thesecond-largest economy in the world?AI: Even to question the government canhave a strong impact on its control. All my father asked for was to have avariety of expressions in literature and art. Rather than just one type offlower, he said there should be a whole garden. It’s so pitiful, because everyflower deserves its own identity and has its own beauty. That simple idea isseen as a threat to the Communist leadership, which is a -military--police typeof leadership. They want to take away any variety of expression. 12345Next
