It's Visceral

Perhaps you've had this experience.When you're talking to boaters, or non-boaters, you can actually feel your energy taking over. In some of us, perhaps, it is hard wired.

I've had friends ask 'why not golf, or hang gliding if you like adventure, or …'You get the drift. It's simple. Boats. Water. And the best part is, in Toronto it starts tomorrow. In Vancouver next week. In the Maritimes, early February. We're back in business thanks to the boat shows.

No matter how many times I've been to the show, and talked to the same sailmakers, salesman and fender vendors, I love it. I'm pumped and, with the festive season now done for another year, looking forward to getting on the water for a booming 2018.
