The last week of April is already here and so is Easter, so we want to wish you all a great holiday weekend. Your support means a lot to us and we thank you. Hopefully this months Insider edition helps with its tips, and possibly puts a smile on your face.
Getting Things Started?
As a new boating season is getting underway, many boaters find that their boat batteries have not fared well through the winter storage months. We have a great article to help demystify, and how to get the longest life and performance from your boat batteries.
We look at starting versus deep-cycle batteries, the different battery sizes, the various types of battery chargers, and also some great tips on how to get the most value out of your whole setup. Have a look at the battery article here.
Always Time to Laugh!
Laughter is great medicine, and they say houseboaters are some of the funniest people around. So for a little humor this Easter weekend, we have a very funny article from Rick of Rhode Island about a "situation" that happened on his houseboat one cold December evening.
Rick has a great way of explaining the thoughts, the ideas, and the steps that were going through his mind at the time. Read the funny article here.
Educational Books, Videos, DVDs
In order to become a knowledgeable confident boat captain, there's plenty to learn which can sometimes be overwhelming. That's why we have centralized some excellent boating books and great video DVDs to help boaters with self-help, or to increase their skill levels.
So whether you're looking to buy a boat, fix or repair, or learn some urgently needed docking skills, there's something for everyone. There's valuable information for the new buyer, the casual boater, and even the experienced boaters.
