Never had a boat, going to look at a Sea Ray 440 AC tomorrow. What should I pay attention to?

    This is a couple of boating tips when coming into a marina heading for your slip. Look for flags to see the way they are blowing even the flags that are on the boats. This will help to determine the wind direction and how strong it might be. If possible when getting ready to dock the boat. Slip it in neutral for a few seconds to see if there is a current to contend with. If there is a current you will know by the way the boat is being moved to adjust accordingly.

    The wife. Pay attention to her. Nothing will ruin your day faster than a pissed off wife.
