Love Getting On The Water, But Hate Owning A Boat? Consider This

Love Getting On The Water, But Hate Owning A Boat? Consider This
News from CBS Local:

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Not only is Minnesota the Land of 10,000 Lakes, we’re also home to the second-highest number of registered boats in the nation.

Only Florida has more motorboats registered than the 540,000 cruising our waterways. But there’s a new trend that’s getting even more families on the waters.

And you don’t even need to own a boat.

It’s belonging to a boat club. And users say it’s just like car sharing, but only with boats.

“[Boating] It’s one of the great things Minnesota has to offer,” said Luke Kujawa, the president of Your Boat Club.

Getting out on the water has never been bigger than it is now, but the pleasure of owning a boat has a price tag.

It’s far more than just buying the boat. There’s the gas, the insurance, the slip rental, the cleaning, fixing and winterizing, and, six months of storage.

That adds up to an average cost of ownership from between a couple thousand dollars to nearly $ 6,500 a year.

But as boat clubs gain members, boat ownership in Minnesota is dropping. It’s down 10 percent — or 58,000 registered motorized boats — since 2006.

Mitchell traded his boat keys for convenience.

“I like the flexibility of not having to worry about it,” former boat owner, Jim Mitchell, said.

Mitchell is a member of the

Ready for boating? Check this list before casting off
News from Lake Expo:

LAKE OF THE OZARKS, Mo. — As the weather warms, and Lake homeowners and boaters prepare for on-water activities, it’s time to check the dock and boat to ensure your fun on the Lake is legal and safe.

Permit & Electric Check

According to the Ameren Missouri guidelines, when a lakefront home is purchased with a private boat dock, and it has electric power, that dock owners must have two permits: one from Ameren and one from the local fire protection district. Those districts at the Lake of The Ozarks require a electrical inspection. Inspections of your boat dock are not required after your initial approval, but what most people don’t know is that it is the dock owner’s responsibility to make sure their dock is electrically safe. According to the Missouri Highway Patrol, most dock electrical incidents are caused by faulty wiring.

Many local electricians, such as Bennett Electric, offer free dock inspections, to help dock owners ensure the dock and water are safe not only for them, but for anyone who happens to swim nearby.


Dock insurance is crucial, but can sometimes be confusing. McGrath Insurance Group recommends having liability protection insurance on your dock. They also recommend that dock owners make sure their liabili…………… continues on Lake Expo

Conditions point to sales rebound for boat show this year
News from Atlanta Journal Constitution:

The annual Progressive Insurance Atlanta Boat Show opens Thursday with expectations from boat builders for better sales in 2013.

The industry, like many segments of the U.S. economy, has been battered by the recession, but some early signs from the National Marine Manufacturers Association show that boat sales, like those of houses and cars, is beginning to rebound.

The show is not just a showplace for boats from personal watercraft to yachts, it includes a daily lineup of seminars on topics ranging from fishing the Chattahoochee River to navigating by the stars.

Speaking of stars, the show includes TV and sports personalities, such as Phil and Bob Soven, the namesakes of MTV’s show “WakeBrothers.” The young men hold a slew of national and world wake boarding titles between them. Eric Young, the host of Animal Planet’s “Off the Hook: Extreme Catches,” will also be on hand for fishing seminars and autographs.

The boat show runs through Sunday at the Georgia World Congress Center, Hall C, at 285 Andrew Young International Blvd. Doors open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday and Friday, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.

The entrance fee for ages 16 and older is $ 12; 15 and younger will be admitted free with an adult. The ticket includes a year’s subscription to a choice of boating and outdoor magazines.

Water Patrol Promoting Boating Safety Earlier This Year

Water Patrol Promoting Boating Safety Earlier This Year
News from OzarksFirst.com:

(Osage Beach, MO) — Summer-like weather has come a little early this year to the Lake of the Ozarks, and many locals are seeing the area come alive already.

That has the Missouri State Highway Patrol’s Water Patrol Division reminding boaters of how to stay safe. It says on average, about 700 people die in the U.S. each year in boating-related accidents.

Steve Lemens works as the head salesman at Glencove Marina in Lake Ozark, and he says this is some of the best weather he has seen at this time of the year.

“It has picked up dramatically since the weather has changed. I mean, we’re seeing weather that was unprecedented in the last 10 years. 80 degrees in March is just a great example,” said Lemens.

That means many are uncovering and de-winterizing their boats and personal watercraft, but that can also mean more issues with safety earlier in the year.

Captain Matt Walz of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Water Patrol Division says folks still need to put safety first.

“Certainly boaters are getting the fervor to get out on the water, and there are a few precautions that they can take,” he says.

The Water Patrol says not much has changed since last year as far as laws on the lake, but common sense rules the day. That includes inspecting your boat before going out, giving way to smaller watercraft on the lake, and always…………… continues on OzarksFirst.com

A boatload of boats at this show
News from Milford Daily News:

It’s a credit to Joe O’Neal, manager of the 2012 New England Boat Show, that he doesn’t flinch when you bring up the old adage: “A boat is a hole in the water that you pour your money into.”

“I think some people still think that,” says the Charlestown resident and owner of a 34-foot Saber power boat, speaking on the phone from his Quincy office. “That was really true for people who owned older boats that you constantly had to fix and update. But today’s boats are so reliable that there are very few mechanical issues.”

If fact, when people attend this year’s boat show, sponsored by Progressive Insurance and running Feb. 11-19 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, first-time visitors might be struck by a surprising little phenomenon: affordability.

Sure, at the show, the top boat (fit for Thurston Howell III and Lovey, no doubt) will top out at about $ 1 million, but O’Neal says visitors will also find 8-foot sailboats starting at about $ 3,000, and aluminum skiffs for around $ 4,000. And the financial blow can be further blunted by financing programs that allow buyers to walk away with a boat, motor and trailer for as little as $ 150 a month.

Those numbers sound good, especially in this economy. Asked if boats are a tough sell these days, O’Neal says, “Clearly the economy has impacted boa…………… continues on Milford Daily News

Recreational Boating Traffic Expected to Peak this Weekend

Getting Home Safely After the Fireworks

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – It’s not a Thanksgiving holiday traffic jam. However, for America’s boaters, it may as well be. The July 4th holiday is expected to bring record numbers of boaters to the water, jamming lakes, rivers and bays with thousands of revelers celebrating America’s birthday at evening fireworks displays. With nightfall, it also means a heightened awareness with boating safety.

“For many, this will be the only time of year they operate their boat in the dark,” said BoatUS Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water President Chris Edmonston. “As you’re about to pull the hook to leave after fireworks show ends, boaters should understand that the risk of having an accident significantly increases after the sun goes down.”
