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 […]

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 […]

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. The days are long enough and the weather mild enough to take a leisurely cruise or an invigorating […]

Whoa, it’s August! I debated whether that should have been a statement, an exclamation, or a question, because it seems to me as if it was just June. Summer was starting, the days were getting longer, and then… the month accelerated into July, which sped by in a whoosh of boating fun. No matter how […]

When I sat down to compose this letter, it occurred to me that all I really needed to do was copy and paste It’s June! over and over again across the entire page. Because, really, what more do you have to say to a boater after a long off-season to elicit joy, happiness, and delight? […]

May might be a tiny word but it’s also a monumental one. Depending on Mother Nature’s quirkiness, we probably boat more in summer than we do in May, but anticipation about the places we’ll go and things we’ll experience is highest now. Since this month marks the start of boating season, I make all my […]

Ever come out on the losing end when your inboard engine becomes entangled in a fishing, mooring, or lobster trap line? It’s a serious predicament beyond the pure annoyance of halting your day of fun — you must immediately deploy your anchor and hope that it grabs quickly so that the boat and all passengers […]
