The month of May brings houseboaters lots of great weather, and also a well deserved Memorial Day long weekend. With that in mind, what do you and your family have planned for this holiday weekend?
Are you going out to anchor in a secluded bay, or going swimming at your favorite beach, or have you decided to stay at the dock to simply entertain and relax with family and friends? Whatever you do, we wish you a safe holiday!
The month of May also marks the beginning of a new boating season for many of you, and as usual there's always things to do, buy, or replace on a boat. So what better timing than a massive Memorial Day sale going on at West Marine.
This amazing 50% off Memorial Day sale is on from May 25-31, and is on hundreds of everyday items that we all use and need. So take out your shopping list and have a look at what is on sale, as now is the perfect time to save yourself some $$$.
So whatever you do this weekend, we're really glad that you're here and you can easily search the close to 1,000 pages of tips and information on the site.
If you're new to the Insider, we welcome you and do enjoy your stay.
Safe Houseboating, Ian & Manon www.all-about-houseboats.com
