Letter from the Editor

April 1, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

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 begin discussing the places we want to visit.

In this issue, we’ve got tools, tips, and techniques for a clean, green, watertight boat. We’re talking about choosing the best place for you and your boat to spend the summer, telling you how to be sure everyone onboard has the right life jacket, and tackling the topic of when you should hire a pro.

Besides our tidy checklists and prep techniques, we have tales to tell! You’ll meet two boaters who haven’t let advancing years keep them off the water, learn the history of a Long Island sailing association, and get a glimpse at the payoff enjoyed by an over-prepared boater.

Boating education is always a timely topic, and we’re taking a look at the benefits of studying safety in a classroom or online. You may be surprised at what our two experienced educators have to say.

We’re also shedding our winter mindset by sharing four popular summer boating hangouts. Are you ready yet?
