I'm flying out on Sunday to get a lay of the land, so-to-speak. I'll be committed, so no turning back. Life can be mundane, adventurous, or somewhere in between. I'm taking the adventurous path I...

Unfortunately, I'm not able to disclose the location, but I can tell you I'm as nervous as I am excited. My friend went over on a similar project 10 years ago, and chose to stay, so who knows what...

Well, looking in the for sale section, I see the owner of the boat my buddy is looking at is not alone. So much for the argument that a boat is a depreciating asset.

That's the last clue I need...

Making an Offer on a Ridiculously Overpriced Used Boat

An associate of mine has his eye on a popular-brand 2007 center console. I know the model intimately, as a friend has owned one for 10 years, though his is a 2008. I know what he paid for the boat...

I keep seeing Intrepid come up when comparing/recommending offshore boats, but they're not known to have the best riding hull, based on input from prior owners I've spoken with. Have they changed...

You are absolutely correct that the organism does not survive in fresh water. The bloom in the Gulf is in no way related to the Okeechobee release however. That release could have provided additional...

Take 20% off the top for the bottom paint on the Wellcraft. Century's of that vintage were actually pretty nice boats. The extra beam of the Sailfish may help with space, but it is a pretty cramped...
