July is coming to an end and you have likely been subjected to some record breaking temperatures? I occasionally wonder if it is the effects of global warming? One thing that you may have surely noticed recently, the temperatures are much more agreeable in the early morning or at night.
In this months edition we'll look at an amazing houseboat rebuild project, and also a solution on how to take your friends and family out for some incredible midnight boat rides.
Safe and Confident at Night
What better than going out for a night time cruise, especially when you can entertain your family and friends under the stars. The advantages of midnight boat rides are that the bugs are long gone, and so is all the busy traffic.
However the major concern for a responsible captain is that the visibility is often extremely limited. You'll be surprised at how a simple night and day solution has converted captains everywhere into night owls... :)
