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: […]

  You don’t need me to tell you what month it is. You can look around almost anywhere and know that it’s May. Moms are beaming, graduates are cheering, trees are greening, birds are singing, and flowers are blossoming. It’s the same out on the water. No matter how many tricks Mother Nature decides to […]
