Boats, like whiskey, are all good.

This website is perfect for a ship spotter nerd like me. I promise you'll learn a lot you didn't know!

The dream

I realized my dream of owning my own humble boat. I realized this dream with the help of these guys.

Wy I Love Boats

As a boater myself it sometimes becomes hard to explain to non-boaters what the love affair is all about. Perhaps it’s a sickness; at least it’s a bug. Some of us use our boats as a home, treating her like a member of the family. I do have a habit of talking to the Patricia Ann; she speaks back but in ways only I can hear. She has become a refuge of sorts, a protected harbor. Sleeping in a motel room when I’m on the road just isn’t the same.

I have friends that use their boats for an escape from life’s stormy weather, relying on their boats to unwind from everyday stress. They take their sailboats, trawlers or motoryachts out to feel the wind on their faces, the sun on their backs. Their boats bring them peace. Others friends, have their boats equipped to make a living from the sea, as do the many shrimpers and charter boat Captains that ply the waters of our Florida coast. Their boats become a life ring, protecting them from the “storm” that waits at the cabin door.

I also like other stuff

Sometimes I feel like people forget there is more to me than just boat. I'm not just a boat man - even though I heart boats. For life. Like for real, if I could marry a boat I probably would.

But the point I'm trying to make is that I also like other stuff. I can't think of anything right now, but when I do I'll post it here.

See you soon.
