One thing notable about most couples who take to boating is that when it comes to docking (or generally navigating in tight quarters), you’re most likely to find the male at the helm.

We hope everyone is having a fantastic Memorial Day weekend on their boats. Summer has officially begun.
Please take a moment to look at that flag we all fly so proudly on our boats and remember that far too many have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect that flag, our country, our freedom, and our way of life.
For those of you who served our country, we thank you for your service. Enjoy your weekend!
