Boating Brings Us Together

Boating, like many other things, seems to be a universal pleasure for people. I am not sure why that surprises me. Driving south on the American I-75 this week illustrated that point quite nicely. I guess it surprised me that the boats you see in Canada are largely the boats you see in the U.S.A. The Cobalts that pepper the waters of the Muskokas are prevalent also throughout the inland States where there are freshwater lakes. The marshier areas and river destinations were full of pontoon boats and decked out trailerable fishing vessels. The Gulf of Mexico has boats of all sizes and descriptions, as you would expect. Sea-Doos are everywhere, just like in Canada, with the same diversity of driver at the helm. Yep, there are those who are cruising and towing with excellent boater skills and there are those who look as though they need both a wide berth and a stern lecture on consideration. The point is, commonalities hopefully make us more understanding of one another, so here's to the boating industry.

Dometic Cup Cooler

DOMETIC ESKIMO CUP

The Dometic Eskimo Cup is a refrigerated cup holder that can be installed in any convenient location to keep drinks refrigerator-cold (results may vary based on environmental conditions). The Eskimo Cup makes your last sip even colder than your first. It allows boaters to keep a can, bottle, or any appropriately sized beverage container chilled on even the hottest days - something that a typical cup holder or can koozie can't begin to accomplish. Simply store your drink in the Eskimo Cup between sips. ... Read More
