Ten Things That Annoy Boat Owners

Image
If you ask me, boaters are some of the best people in the world.I’m not sure why, but they are.Maybe it is because they have more fun than most people or maybe it is because they don’t worry themselves with trivial issues such as getting their wills together before they die.After all, the only thing that will be left is a well-used boat, a few life jackets, a pair of flip flops and some sunglasses.Even the nicest people, however can get annoyed sometimes.For the typical boater, the source of annoyance typically comes from those who do not understand the boating lifestyle.It doesn’t mean the offender is a bad person.They just need to learn a few things.

Here are 10 things that are sure to annoy the average boater:

1.Showing Up Late – You invite some friends out for a day on the water.Everyone is there, ready to go . . . except for one person.Now you are all sitting there waiting for him/her to show up before the fun can start.A day of fun on the water can’t start until you leave the do…

Should I Document My Boat?

Image
Recently, a friend of mine came across a PWC floating aimlessly in the no wake zone of her marina.She checked with the marina and they could not identify the owner.She then reported the found vessel to the DNR and found that there was no record of ownership there either.The problem was that the registration had expired and along with it, any record of ownership.The officer asked her if she would like to claim the vessel herself.Yup! To her astonishment, at that point, all she had to do was pay the fee to register the vessel in her name and she could legally take ownership.


How is this possible?Truth be told, this won’t happen in most states, but it can and did in Georgia.It could also happen in 14 other states.There are currently 15 states in the US that do not title boats.This means that the only thing legally tying you to your beloved watercraft is the state registration.

Happy Safe Boating Week

The unofficial kickoff of summer is just around the corner and if you haven’t already started your boating fun, you are surely thinking about it.Soon, the lakes, rivers and coastline will be full of those who worship the sun, the sand and fun.Before the mayhem starts, don’t forget to take a moment to remember the fact that Safe Boating Week is May 18 – 24, 2019.No doubt that having fun while boating is elemental but let’s make a plan to do it safely.Here are a few promises to make to yourself about boating safely this summer:

Avoid boating while under the influence.Far too many people are injured or killed each year due to boaters that are intoxicated.You don’t have to drink to have fun but if you do, don’t get behind the wheel.Let someone else drive or choose to stay put.

Pay attention.There are lots of things to look out for when on the water.Other boats, jet skis, obstacles and sometimes even people can sometimes get in the way.Keep an eye out while underway at all times.Remember th…
