Recreational boating has become increasingly popular in the last handful of years. More first-time boaters entered the lifestyle than ever before when Covid forced everyone to isolate themselves. Boating is a way to spend time with your family doing something fun and adventurous while being shielded from public spaces.
Warm summer weather is finally here after what felt like a never-ending winter. Like everyone else, I’ve been dying to get out on the boat. I don’t know about you but one of my favorite times to go for a boat cruise is right around sunset. You get all the beautiful scenery without the intense heat of the day.
In the sea of boats that are on the market today, there’s one steadfast feature that you can find with just about any brand. This component is essential for owners of recreational vessels no matter where they boat and plays a big role in comfortability as well as the aesthetic of the boat.
Boating isn’t always the same for everyone. Some people choose to boat on inland lakes whereas other people choose to boat on Intracoastal waterways. Granted, it likely depends on where you live. Boating can be quite different between the two so it's important to be prepared if you’re not familiar.
It’s nearly impossible to keep your boat completely dry. At some point, you will likely get at least a little bit of water pooling in the bottom of the boat. It could be from rain, spray from waves, or even jumping on your boat after a swim. Any of those things can cause water to gather in the hull.
Summer fun is only a few weeks away. Everyone is itching to get out on the boat after, what seemed like, a never-ending winter. We’re all ready for long warm, sunny days on the water. You’re starting to prepare for summer which makes you think, “I need a new hat”. But, how will you choose the perfect one for this boating season?
