Boat Restoration: The First Place You’d Better Sweat is Your Brain

Boating is one of the universal pass times of mankind. From the first time someone thought, “Hey, I wonder if there are more fish out there than there are on the beach,” boats have been a big deal. And a classic dream in our modern culture is expressed wonderfully by Andy Dufresne in The Shawshank Redemption as, “I’ll buy a worthless old boat, fix it up new, and take my guests charter fishing.” Unfortunately for most of us, the reality of fixing up a boat is nowhere near the romantic…

Best Center console for the money?

Any ideas on what the best used Center console is out there? I'm looking to pick up a trailerable unit probably under 25' since my truck only pulls 5000lbs.

I hear Yamaha is the best outboard?

I hear Grady White is the best boat?

I see Mako is pretty affordable.

I read Scout is the most fuel effecient?

Do you know this to be true?

Going to the Beach on a Budget

Some people want to go to the beach more often but they find their finances are holding them back. In this economy, I can easily understand why people are skimping and scraping where they can. Even if you live in an area that is close to the beach, you may find there are still expenses related to going.

For example, you might have gas to get there, you might take off work for a short trip or an overnight trip, you need food and drink while you’re there and you might purchase other… Continue

What to blog about?

So I'm wondering if I need to keep my blogs here to boating topics. I mean, it's a boating site but it's MY blog, right? So shouldn't I be able to blog about whatever. Like, what about my day or my weekend plans or family? Or maybe I could blog about why I like boating and how I got interested in it in the first place.

I'm getting some great ideas here for my blog at Boat Pinellas but it's getting late here so I will need to start my first "real" blog tomorrow. Yay!

What is a Blog? Please read this before posting a new blog..

There appears to be some confusion on the difference between forum / discussions and blogs. In general, a forum/discussion is intended for two way conversations and/or questions and a blog can be thought of as more of a one way journal that can be commented on.

A blog (short for weblog) is a personal online journal that is frequently updated and intended for general public consumption. They are usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of… Continue
