Veteran agent Ken Chaplin faces unusual challenges when it comes to exercise. He lives on a boat! Usually an avid biker, take a look at how he has adjusted and changed how he exercises now!

When did you start exercising?

So basically…when did I start exercising…well I’ve never been one to do proper exercise routines. I like to do an activity which I enjoy that also gives me exercise. I guess what really prompted me to be a little bit more serious was when I had surgery about ten/twelve years ago and I wanted to regain my health and my fitness so I started cycling.

I joined a cycling group and I built it up and over several years I managed to do the Ride for Hope. It was my goal to do the whole one hundred miles which I managed to do about the…

When did you start exercising?

Exercise has been a part of my entire life.  Being a former college athlete, I have been working out at some level since high school.  Working out for Track and Field at a NCAA Division 1 level was very intense and for many years after college, I had discontinued any consistent routine maybe due to burn-out, but when my two sons began competing in a number of sports during their high school and college careers, I picked it up again by working out with them. They both went on to be collegiate athletes and both sons reside in…

Preparing for Disaster

hurricane matthews pathway
A tropical wave, named 97L, formed off the coast of Africa in late September, travelled west across the Atlantic, and upon reaching the Eastern Caribbean became Hurricane Matthew on September 28th 2016. Matthew rapidly intensified and became a Category 5 storm on September 30th and proceeded to track northwards, towards Haiti, Cuba and ultimately The Bahamas and on to the US East Coast.

Labelled a major storm and significant threat from early on, Matthew was taken very seriously by the Bahamian population. Preparations began early, and picked up pace as Matthew moved, ever so slowly, closer. Matthew had the capital, New Providence in his path and the residents were taking no chances. By the mid afternoon on Wednesday the…

ERA Dupuch Real Estate once again sponsored Team ERA to compete in the GAFFW triathlon event in Treasure Cay Abaco this past week-end with the Olympic Event held on Saturday March 21st, 2015.


We all rubbed our eyes, rolled out of bed at Oh Dark Thirty and wandered over to the staging area in Treasure Cay next to the gorgeous 3 mile, world-renowned beach. It was pitch black! Soon enough as the sun was rising the swimmers set off and the race was on!


Katie Roach swam an impressive speed at 22.35 minutes for the 1500 metre distance (pretty much 1 mile) in the unusually very murky water (created by large ocean swells from the day before) and I hopped on my bike and peddled madly down the Great Abaco Highway even having to negotiate a…
