Call it luck, serendipity, fortune, or just calendar roulette — July has five full weekends. Yes, the gift to boaters that is July itself has a bonus weekend, and we intend to make the most of every one of them. Over the years, we average 13 weekends of “official” summer. However, the way the days […]

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 […]

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.

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.
