Stupid Human Boating Tricks

I tend to look at craigslist pretty much daily looking for repairable boats I can fix and resell... Some of the ads are hilarious, some are born out of ignorance, and some... well, I have no idea what they are doing ...

Insurance Corner | Tips for Off-Season Boating
Sponsored content by NBOA Marine Insurance

During the fall and winter, boaters enjoy an entirely new way to experience waterways. They can drop anchors in the normally bustling waterways, and enjoy the scenery. Yet boating in the off-season does come with certain challenges – the sun sets earlier, temperatures drop faster and there are fewer boats to assist in emergency situations. Therefore, your friends at the National Boat Owners Association prepared a few tips to keep you safe while boating in the off-season.

Ask The Experts | Buying a Used Boat
Article courtesy of Yamaha Motors

You’re ready to move up to a bigger boat, downsize to a smaller boat, or maybe Ol’ Faithful isn’t as faithful as she used to be – it’s time for another boat. That’s great, because there has never been a better time to get a boat. It’s a buyer’s market.

Don’t let new boat sticker shock nix your dreams; there are thousands of pre-owned (sales speak for “used”) boats yearning for a home where someone will love and take care of them.

Red Sky at Night with JB Cornwell | Big Sis.

I tied on my 18S Rapala and cast toward emergent weeds and shallow rocks. The water in Big Sis was gin clear, so we could read a newspaper on the bottom in 10’ depths. Both Walt and the guide told me I would find no muskys there, only bass and maybe a walleye (The lake held no northern pike in those days). My fishing instincts insisted that I was casting to where ambush predators would lurk. I stuck with my instinct.

Product Spotlight | Which Came First? Flats Boat or Bass Boat?
Article written by Bill Gius

I’ve had the opportunity to drive many different bass boats and I still don’t like getting fish slime or fish guts on the carpet. When I drive flats or bay boats I notice they never have carpet, are easy to clean, have very non-slip patterns molded in to their fiberglass sole (floors) and are fitted out pretty much like a bass boat. So why haven’t flats or bay boats made their way inland?

Product Spotlight | New Mercury 150 4-Stroke Features
Article written by Bill Gius

This engine is a four cycle engine just like in our car, stern drive powered boat, many lawn mowers and other of our vehicles. It needs an oil sump (reservoir) and that oil needs to be filtered and periodically changed. You should check your oil level once in a while as well. Doing all of that on the 150 is a lot easier and neater too.
