November 1, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

When temperatures drop, water safety precautions hold steady. In fact, harsher conditions combined with scarcity of boaters in the vicinity — to lend a hand or call for assistance — requires cold weather boaters to remain vigilant about every aspect of boating safety. How you feel when you step outside is not a reliable gauge […]

Summer goes by way too fast — we have so much fun boating, yet we have so few weekends to enjoy it. This year, we were not going to let summer fly by without having our fill of fun! My family loves boating, yet with all my cousins, my brother, and me attending college and […]

Those of us who have boats are blessed. We are even luckier to be residents of Long Island, a great place to live. Though Long Island may have its negatives, I always thought it was the best place to reside. Now that I’ve moved to Florida for college, I miss home! I love boating and […]

Turning 16 was a major milestone in my life. While many girls ask for a huge present like money, a vacation trip, a car or a party, I did not pick from that list.
