From where I sit, March has a serious identity crisis. The calendar may designate this month’s waning days as the beginning of spring, but when I set foot outside I’m immediately tempted to spring back inside to escape the cold. Don’t be so fast to disparage March, astronomers would say. They know the earth is […]

The holiday season is approaching, accompanied by colder temperatures and shorter days. Boating may not be the first thing to come to mind, but we think it still can be. Your love of boating doesn’t just stop because Mother Nature changed her tune; our magazine lets you keep reading about the boating lifestyle. I know […]

Welcome to the sometimes-unsettled and slightly mysterious month of September! Mother Nature surrounds us in her golden glow and then turns the lights out early. Summer’s heat scurries along on its last legs while autumn’s winds and chills keep sticking their feet in the door. Vacation days used in July and August, many boaters start […]

I However, as a boater, I wholeheartedly disagree with categorizing all intervals uniformly. Not all time can be alike! August zooms by at twice the pace of January even though both months have 31 days. In my world, one boating day in August feels like seven days in January. have only a rudimentary knowledge of physics; what […]

Do you think it’s a complete coincidence that July and joy both begin and end with the same letters? I don’t think so, as July is jam-packed with joy! This month seems inexhaustible. The hustle and bustle of June is in the past, and Labor Day is so far away. I can’t see anything from […]

When a sunny and clear June day unfolded without a discernable wind and any perceptible humidity, my mother would remark on the “absence of weather.” In other words, focus on something else, because what are you going to complain about when the skies are blue and the temperature is pleasant? My mom’s observation sums up […]

  You don’t need me to tell you what month it is. You can look around almost anywhere and know that it’s May. Moms are beaming, graduates are cheering, trees are greening, birds are singing, and flowers are blossoming. It’s the same out on the water. No matter how many tricks Mother Nature decides to […]

April begins with an A — as does anticipation. It’s a month where we shed just dreaming about boating and actually work towards getting out on the water. Boat prep is a major April activity; so is fun prep. Lucky for you, we can help with both! We share tips and pointers for being greener […]

Dear Editor, At the New York Boat Show in January 2015, I encountered the Emily Catherine Fedorko Foundation, whose slogan is, “Turn it off for Emily.” Emily Fedorko was a beautiful 16-year old high honor student and athlete who loved the water and had a zest for life.  Emily lost her life in a tubing […]

March doesn’t pretend to believe its own hype. It knows the proverb about coming in like a lion and departing like a lamb, but March can easily roar for 31 days with no consequences. It knows that the first day of spring arrives on its watch, but if the cold winds continue to blow and […]

Nothing personal, February, but I’m very glad you’re a short month. You’re rarely mellow or moderate, and your chill is hard to shake. Yes, you give many of us a long weekend to celebrate President’s Day, but frankly, except for that bright red Valentine’s Day heart smack dab in the middle, you’re a month that […]

Despite the bleak looking landscape outside our window, everything about January is optimistic. The year is new, we hatch resolutions anew, and that aching for summer we abandoned in November and December? We renew our hopes about this time, as spring’s arrival on March 20 lets the countdown to summer officially begin. While we await […]

Cold weather and I are completely incompatible. I don’t like hats, I don’t like gloves, I don’t like fleece, and I sure don’t like anything frozen unless it’s a dessert. As we embark upon the coldest (and shortest) days of the year, I always seek ways to warm up without having to bundle up. The […]

I must have blinked once or twice in mid-summer, giving September an opportunity to sneak onto the calendar. If you’re anything like me, your Summer 2014 To-Do List is still quite long. Sure, I thoroughly enjoyed being on the boat, but I want additional sunny days and balmy nights aboard. Yes, I went to fun […]

August seems to fly by twice as fast any other month. We’ve figured out that our endless summer is no longer limitless, and in fact, it’s picking up speed as it barrels towards September. I can spend the next couple of paragraphs moaning and groaning about how I wish it was May again, or I […]

Let’s say you are writing up a crossword puzzle filled solely with words that convey fun. You’d certainly include the six-letter words EXCITE and THRILL, incorporate five-letter words like ENJOY, AMUSE, GREAT, MERRY, CHEER, and BLISS, and have three-letter word clues with answers such as JOY (and maybe YAY!). Inasmuch as you’re reading this boating […]

In my position, I receive “story pitches” from writers, inquiring as to whether I’d want them to write up their ideas for this magazine. Sometimes the pitch is very original, and other times it’s a variation on an old story told from a new angle. Though the old story/new slant might be about anchoring or […]

I love May! Sometime this month, it dawns on me that the threat of snow is finally, truly gone, and my delicious expectations for summer can grow unchecked. In May, everything seems possible. The days may all be warm, and they will certainly continue growing long. Clothes become skimpier, toes peek out of sandals, and […]

There’s absolutely no way that I can greet April with any more eloquence or eagerness than George Harrison did when he sang:  Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting Little darling, it seems like years since it’s been clear.* Though the winter may be behind us calendar-wise, Mother Nature seems reluctant to send […]

Just before I sat down to write this letter to you, I was doing my usual griping about the too-long nights and the too-cold days. Instead of the murmurs of agreement I usually hear when bashing Long Island’s winter weather, my acquaintance asked me a question. “Would you have anything to look forward to if […]

Wait a minute! Wasn’t it just July?  Judging from the sweater I’m wearing as I type this, and the lack of leaves on the trees I can see, I know the year is coming to an end. However, I can’t actually believe we’re on the eve of 2014! Looking at a new year doesn’t mean […]

I didn’t summon October, or wait impatiently for its arrival. This month just showed up, unbeckoned and not entirely welcome. I’m sorry, October, but I like July a lot better than you! However, as October has definitely arrived, let’s make the best of this ever-changing and very interesting month. For the hardiest among us, there’s […]

Are you someone who thinks of September as a month of beginnings? I understand why many measure the year by the start of school, the arrival of autumn, or by the celebration of Rosh Hashanah, but I’m definitely not one of those people.  I’m the type who sees the year drawing to a close as […]

A calendar with June at the top is usually a calendar filled with happy activities— weddings, graduations, parties, Dad’s Day celebrations, the end of school, and lots of boating! We know you’re like us and resist accepting too many on-land invitations, just to spend more time on the boat. Since that’s the case, you’ll want […]

April is a short word, but it coveys so much. It’s the month when we believe that the threat of blizzards is behind us and the trees and flowers bursting forth around us won’t be shocked back into dormancy.  April is when we start working on our boats (or at least plan our prep), and […]
