"Know Your Limits"

Boating for many means experiencing exhilarating freedom and adventure. Out on the water, there are no drawn lanes to be dutifully followed, and boaters can enjoy breaking the surly bonds of land-borne life. At the same time, boating requires a measure of self-sufficiency and accountability; boaters need to be knowledgeable and prepared when heading out on the water. In the immortal words of Dirty Harry, "A man's got to know his limitations."


Here's a good article from our friends at Boating Times - Long Island...... CLICK HERE  

Tommy Cares Foundation - On the Water at Cove

On Sunday Sept 15'th Norwalk Cove is hosting a fundraising event in conjunction with DownUnder SUP/Kayaks.  8:00 AM - 1:30 PM

Tommie Cares hosts safe, real-life adventures that connect individuals with special needs with community volunteers, building confidence and self-esteem for those with special needs. By sharing a common & exciting experience in a supportive environment where everyone succeeds, the programs also act as a catalyst for creating new friendships among and between different communities. Current activities include stand up paddling (SUP), kayaking, outrigger canoeing, swimming, snow sports, and more.

Please Participate.  For More........ CLICK HERE  
Navigating with Your Phone, Tablet or Computer ?
We've always been impressed with the Active Captain website and what their Interactive Cruising Guidebook can offer boaters. Now there are even more mobile programs that include the Active Captain database that don't need Wi-Fi or cell tower data. 

For a list of the various programs available, CLICK HERE
 Prices vary, as does sophistication and features, so do your homework,  (great winter project) but remember:  There is no substitute for real charts and a compass when the power goes out or the phone/tablet/computer gets wet.   Note: Not "IF", it's "WHEN" !  
Walk on the Water - What ?
Now we've seen it all... There is a new product out which is being marketed as the WOW  (Walk on Water) pad.   
Yes, it looks like fun and would be great out at Cockenoe Island !

Ask in the Ships Store for details
