Summer is in full swing and it's time to rock the boat! Boaters love this time of year. Daylight hours are longer, there's always a reason to get friends together and head out on your boat for a day of fun and
enjoyment. Don't forget the sunscreen, some good food, your fishing gear
and the music that makes you think of sun and fun. Lots of people like
to drop anchor and meet up with other boaters to swim, eat and dance.
Boating parties are a big hit for families and for singles.
Safety comes first though. Just like with driving a car, there needs to be a designated boater when alcohol is involved. Safety equipment needs to be inspected before you leave for your party. Make sure there are enough life vests for every passenger and that you let someone know where you'll be boating, when you leave and when you are expected to return. You can even file a float plan on your smart phone.
Make sure your boat insurance plan is up to date before the summer begins too.
You can choose a theme for your boat party and go wild with it. Decorate your boat, play games, bring food and music that is inspired by your theme. Have a contest to see which boat can outdo the other. Some ideas for your party are Mardi Gras, Karaoke, Tropical, Pirate, Christmas In Summer, The Love Boat, Gilligan's Island, etc. Invite your friends with themed invitations and let the boat party begin.
Don't forget to bring along some sea sickness medicine just in case!
Happy Boating :}
