When we first started this magazine, know-it-alls told us that we’d never survive unless we forgot about boaters and focused exclusively on boats. We didn’t follow that advice — we were certain that having fun on the water didn’t depend on the type or size of a vessel. No one laughs more on a cabin […]

I really didn’t want to write this letter. My fingers simply refused to embrace the month when autumn begins. Nope, I just couldn’t write about September. Having left my toddler days long ago, I soon realized that throwing a tantrum wouldn’t actually prevent the currents from floating the calendar forward. Maybe I’d just start by […]

I love everything about August except the way every experience seems measured by the hourglass. People say, “Let’s get together one more time this summer!” and “Is there still time to do that before summer ends?” This August, let’s stop calendar and clock watching. Is the water calm and is the breeze delightful right now? […]

Call it luck, serendipity, fortune, or just calendar roulette — July has five full weekends. Yes, the gift to boaters that is July itself has a bonus weekend, and we intend to make the most of every one of them. Over the years, we average 13 weekends of “official” summer. However, the way the days […]

There’s something about June that makes it unique. It’s a busy month filled with too many obligations for this boater’s taste, but those obligations are mostly celebratory — such as honoring fathers and other men we love, and Flag Day. Many June events are also about new adventures — graduations, weddings, and the launch of […]

Hello, May! I’m an unabashed fan, and I’d really like to tell you why. Though you treat me a bit coldly some days, you’ve got a warmth about you I find appealing. You’re full of celebrations such as May Day, Cinco de Mayo, and Armed Forces Day. You devote one of your 31 precious days […]

The month of April feels like a reward for making it through winter. Sure, it’s a quirky month, but the likelihood is that we won’t be plunged into an extended Arctic chill. In other words, it may be changeable, but April is all about progress. Unless you’re exclusively an ice boater, the factors that matter […]

Should we consider March a month to celebrate or overlook? It does usher in the seedlings of spring, but March seemingly specializes in something else — dreary days. Days may get lighter towards month’s end, but they certainly don’t get bright enough fast enough for me. The best way to speed up the brightening is […]

Despite the stresses in our everyday world, living the boating lifestyle affords opportunities to escape. Once the dock fades from view, I enjoy a vacation from life’s big and small burdens. As family and friends laugh on the boat, gentle waves, sunshine, and sea creatures distract and soothe. The recipe for short-term relaxation is simple: […]

Happy New Year! Whether you greet January with a sigh of relief or a wave of disappointment, it’s an attention-grabbing month. Do you make multiple resolutions or decree yourself resolution-free? Either way, you’re likely open to self-improvement. Winter provides boaters with the opportunity to improve. Perhaps calling it an upgrade is more à propos. Let’s […]
