Is Boating Really Expensive?

Image
A question that many of us boaters get from non-boaters is whether boating is expensive or not.Even still, sometimes we have people tell us that it is expensive and they swear they know this from experience.For example:One of my friends is a pilot and has a small plane that he keeps at a local airport near where I live.I was hanging out with him at the airport one day and he introduced me to his friend, John.John and his wife had a private hanger with an apartment upstairs and a machine shop in the back.His wife, who was also a licensed pilot, flew a twin engine Cessna and John had an old WWII warbird that he had restored years earlier.He was very proud of his toy and told me that he bought it for a song at 80 grand and then spent several years and over a hundred thousand dollars having it restored.Needless to say, I was impressed.When he asked me if I flew as well, I responded by telling him that I was into boating.

15 of The Best Boat Songs

If you spend a lot of time on your boat, then you already know that one of the best ways to set the right tone for is to have the right music playing.It doesn’t matter if your sound source is a ten thousand dollar stereo or a boom box, the right music when on the water can make a huge difference.Here is what I consider to be some of the best songs to have in your play list when you are on the water.
The Dock of The Bay by Otis Redding – This is an oldie but a goodie and even though it is before my time, I can still appreciate the relaxing mellow tones and the mental picture it paints every time I listen to it.Makes me feel like I’m on the water no matter where I really am.


Dead or Alive by Bon Jovi – Okay, I admit that this is not the typical boating song but I’m a big fan of Deadliest Catch and this was the theme song for years.Now, I can’t hear it without thinking about boats, the sea and crab fishing.It just is what it is.
