Getting out on the water should be fun and easy.

Sometime it is … and sometime it isn’t.

If you’re ill-prepared and unfamiliar with your boat – the odds are – your time on the water will be stressful and unpleasant. We’re here to provide complete and relevant resources that help boaters stay informed and confident.

From our experience, a well informed and well prepared skipper tends to find the most adventure as well as the most relaxation while out at sea.

For example, imagine you’re out for a day sail and you happen to get boarded by the Coast Guard. Let’s say they decide to perform a routine safety inspection and make sure you and your pleasure craft are up to snuff. Now, wouldn’t that be a more pleasant experience if you already knew you were in compliance with the all relevant boating laws? To help you achieve this state of relaxed compliance, we’ve compiled all the boater education and licensing requirements by state. If you’re unsure of your state’s boating laws, then check out the page.

Imagine how relaxed your posture would be as the Coasties stepped on board. You could casually offer them a cup of coffee as you point out your fire extinguishers, PFDs and boating license.

That is the brand of seamanship we’re trying to foster at All Things Boat. We’re here to encourage calm, collected and confident skippers. Because, the more you know…the farther you can go.

Well … that’s the plan anyway.

Be safe – and we hope to see you out on the water!
