Some Tips to Discover Your Own Boating Adventure

Last week we enjoyed a taste of spring weather. It may not have lasted long, but long enough to get the “props” turning in my mind. Many thoughts of how we can enjoy this season in our boat quickly floated by.

How about you? Have you given any thought to how boating can be a part of the warmer weather ahead? Many people will immediately conjure up images of racing up and down the lake pulling skiers and tubers all afternoon. While that can sure be loads of fun, why not consider including your boat into other fun activities as well?

Here are a few tips to get you started. For instance, why not book a dinner cruise date with your significant other – reservations for two at the best table overlooking the water, your boat! Pack a picnic meal and enjoy a beautiful sunset while gently anchored in a secluded cove. Or better yet, fire up a grill mounted right to your boat and create a lakeside barbeque. Afterward enjoy the peace and serenity of a moonlight cruise. Life on the water takes on an exciting feel once the sun goes down.

If the two of you cannot easily escape from the rest of your clan, then take them along and reconnect! Use your boat as your personal waterfront estate. Find a cove, throw out the anchor, and spend an afternoon swimming, fishing, laughing, and just plain enjoying each other’s company. Togetherness is the only option in the confines of your boat.

Create your own vacation cruise and take a trip by boat. See new sites from an entirely new prospective this year. Frequent visitors to our blog have most likely read my entry about our summer boating trip last year. Spend an overnight, a weekend, or longer traveling by boat. There are always new ‘ports of call’ waiting to be visited.

Include your boat in your plans this summer and discover your own boating adventure. The possibilities are endless.
