Back pain changes everything. It certainly pushes boating onto the back burner, and as the season is so short, that’s time you can’t make up. Being body conscious on and off the boat can help you prevent injuries and maximize your time on the water. Active boaters bend, lift, pull, toss, reach, climb, and leap. […]

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 […]

Self-Care for your Welfare

We’re instructed on every airplane flight to put on our own oxygen mask before assisting others, so it figures that if we’re run down, stressed out, and unfit, we’re at just as big a disadvantage. This is the year of self-care, where we grab that metaphorical oxygen mask of wellness and fill ourselves full of […]

I like October. It may be sweater weather but it’s not usually coat weather. It’s a time when weekends are great for apple picking, leaf peeping, and football watching, but there’s also lots of time for boating.

When weekdays are measured by work and school, the boat becomes a savory respite for a few hours. As warm weekends dwindle, time aboard feels less like feasts and more like desserts.
