Just quietly, marine technology has progressed in leaps and bounds By Mark Rothfield, Newcastle , 11:45 PM Thu 16 May 2013
Time really does fly when you’re having fun. Season after season you trudge along, convinced there’s nothing new under the sun, so why update your perfectly good 1972-vintage runabout with the brown-band Merc? It’s surely good for another year … as is your safari suit. ...[more]

Hold the phone Russell ... America’s finally listening By Mark Rothfield, Newcastle , 10:40 AM Tue 12 Feb 2013
There’s a theory – yet to be proved – that wind is caused by trees waving their branches, and in the case of my dopey golden retriever its tails really can wag the dog whenever it’s walkies.

Where there's good will there's a way to help another boatie By Mark Rothfield, 5:43 PM Tue 18 Dec 2012
We’re not the nicest of species when you think about it. There are far too many lawyers, tax officers, parking cops, dodgy car salesmen and Collingwood supporters out there … not to mention your garden variety burglars, murderers and terrorists.

Lake home owners disturb ski racing fun By Mark Rothfield, Newcastle , 4:47 AM Fri 26 Oct 2012
When does an editorial become an idiot-orial? When you wake on the Monday morning after a sensational waterski event to see a headline in the local rag: 'Lake racers disturb Sunday peace'.
