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 […]

Should we consider March a month to celebrate or overlook? It does usher in the seedlings of spring, but March seemingly specializes in something else — dreary days. Days may get lighter towards month’s end, but they certainly don’t get bright enough fast enough for me. The best way to speed up the brightening is […]

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 […]

Really, December — you’re back so soon? It’s hard to believe that within this month, you’ll usher in winter and escort 2016 out the door. Once again, you’ll gather together our loved ones and those we only see once a year. You’ll be so joyous and festive, sprinkling us with good cheer, and then suddenly […]

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 […]

September is a mixed-up stew of ingredients — extra obligations, warm days, spectacular sunsets occurring just about dinnertime. 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. However, dessert is often the […]

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 […]

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 […]

Spring ahead! What a wonderful phrase to hear after a long, dark, cold winter! While it may not mean summer just yet, it certainly inspires hope of those warmer temps. With that hope and–the official start of spring on the 21st, you can start prepping for a wonderful summer of boating. Make a list of […]
