Welcome to The Boater's Lounge!
It's that time of the year - boaters migrating north for the summer! ⚓️
As we head into Memorial Day Weekend at the end of the month, we can't wait to have our amazing boating community back up in the Chesapeake Bay and points north. We are excited to have our educational resource, Bob Arrington, back on today to walk us through best practices when cruising the Intracoastal waterway this season. From daily travel planning, to bridge and passing etiquette, and more, Bob has all the top tips for any boater to know or refresh yourself on before taking off or while you are on the way!
Allie, Andy & Bob cover...
- average cruising speed and how to work that into your travel plans
- the importance of communicating with bridges (hot tip: keep 2 radios on board!)
- Passing vessels with minimal wake & why
- Intersecting waterways
- and even what to do when you run a ground (because we all have)
