As the old line goes: I wouldn't join any club that would have me as a member. The reality of the situation is that my wife and I are both retired and we try (try being the operative word) to live within our budget. Yeah, very funny. A boat owner trying to live within a budget. Being what it may, I do not feel its necessary to throw money at an organization for the purpose of being social and attend expensive events. I am not very thrilled with these organizations that require you have a certain size boat. A boat is a boat and regardless of its size, we all have the same purpose and that is to have fun, enjoy the water, and tell "war stories" with other boaters. We expect to take delivery of our newest (to us) SeaRay by the end of the month. During the winter months in SE Florida, we will be doing lots of day cruising along with weekend cruising. Our summer months will be filled with long range cruising up to Cape Cod and the Islands with the long range plan of living aboard the boat for three to four months. Since we are just getting back into boating after a few years sabbatical, I was wondering if there are other SeaRay owners that would like to do group cruising, either locally or longer distances? I used to do that years ago and found it to be a lot of great fun and what better way to make new friends as we already share a common interest. If you might have an interest in doing this, chime in on the thread. This could be a lot of fun. BTW, my boat will be located near Two Georges Restaurant in Boynton Beach.
