WE MOTORED PASTTHE SITE of John Wayne's former house in Newport Harbor as we headed for open water and our sea trial aboard the Ocean Alexander 80 Motoryacht — fourscore and three feet of gleaming white marine carriage. The Duke is long gone, but as a fellow Iowan — my hometown is 20 miles from Wayne's, the area around which was the inspiration for "The Bridges of Madison County" — I took an extra-long look at the still-revered estate of an Iowa As the steady string of houses to starboard gave way to the rocky breakwater, I knew we were close to open water and adding about 20 knots to our no-wake-zone speed. Once clear of the harbor, JR Wills of Ocean Alexander California cranked up the engines. A raft of sea lions sunning on a buoy barked out best wishes for our safe trip — as if they knew we just passed the beach where the opening of "Gilligan's Safety concerns, pinniped or otherwise, certainly contributed to the measures taken by Ed Monk Jr. and his design team to build a yacht that is strong and safe, fast and spacious. The longitudinal and lateral fiberglass stringers are filled with high-density foam. The hull — carbon-fiber infused composite hand- laid fiberglass with vacuum-bag technology — is solid below the waterline and cored above it. Aluminum I-beams reinforce the deck, superstructure and flybridge. Sturdy 2-inch stainless steel handrails surround the main deck; 1.5-inch stainless rails enclose the flybridge. Up from the teak swim step, via port and starboard stairs, is the California deck, with its teak sole and an oval table big enough to seat eight between the settee and the chairs opposite it. There's a grill, access to both sidedecks, and stairs down to the engine room and crew quarters. There's also a third control station, which is portable and comes in handy for docking. The 80's open layout inside gives aft-deck loungers a clear view all the way forward to the helm, if they are so inclined. Fully covered, the California deck is a breezy, shaded communal space.
