Watch Out for Whales!   Whether looking for them or not, cold weather boaters often spot whales (and other marine mammals).

Don’t Do What I Did

Don’t Do What I Did

A Nautical Oxymoron   We boaters are a strange breed. We are all thrilled when we buy a boat, and quite a few are equally thrilled when they sell their boats. What gives?
