A Shaker of Salt
Buffett’s new boat
Some photo assignments are more fun than others, and photographer Onne van der Wal clearly enjoyed his stint in the Bahamas snapping the Surfari 50, designed by Rhode Islander Ted Fontaine for none other than singer Jimmy Buffett. For this shot, van der Wal hopped overboard off Bimini with his Canon camera protected in an Aquatech underwater housing. The Bahamas is the natural home for a boat like the Surfari, which was designed for outdoor living with a huge cockpit protected by a hardtop, single-level accommodations and an al fresco galley that looks perfect for grilling up any number of cheeseburgers in paradise. There’s no word on how songsmith Buffett is enjoying his new ride, but we can’t imagine he’s anything but delighted.
