I was there that horrible day in Mexico when Bill Muncey died in that boat. It is a day that I, and everyone who has ever been involved in the sport, will remember forever.
I want more of it as soon as I can. It’s an easy, clean, inexpensive, and healthy way to be on the water. So, remember, it ain’t the boat, it’s the float that matters!
So what constitutes a trawler and why would there be a festival to celebrate whatever the heck a trawler is? I have a concept in my head of what I think a trawler is, but it’s only a concept.
Okay, it’s quiz time! Why do companies who utilize boats and ships, who build boats and ships, who sell and repair boats and ships, decide to put their businesses next to the water? OK… go!
Go anywhere in the country and ask people what comes to mind when they think of Seattle. I bet they say, throwing salmon, the Space Needle, and ferries. The Washington State Ferries system really represents Seattle and the Northwest.
We were hopeful that the people who had the courage to join us, in the dead of winter, would have a good time and return with some great memories, as well as some new friends. For all of those reasons, we couldn’t be happier with the way the Winter Rendezvous turned out!
Hydroplane racing legend Chip Hanauer will be the first to admit he doesn't know much about cruising despite being one of the fastest men on water. Lucky for him, Ranger Tugs has partnered up to help him master the art of destination boating.
With regard to the “Winter Boating” segment, I want everyone to know that I “eat my own cooking.” I’m not laying on my couch, during the winter months, with my favorite blanket over me, while I tell you folks you should get out on the water. Honest! This time I’m telling the truth. Really!
