Birds chirping, fresh breeze gently rustling through the trees, a bird landing on the edge of the pier. It’s sunrise on a beautiful summer day. In a matter of hours, there will be all kinds of activity fluttering along the shoreline creating turning a vacant piece of waterfront wilderness into America’s summertime living room. Frisbees will be flying, kites will hit the skies, coolers will be rolling to the dock, tubes will be inflated, and boats will be dipping their sterns into the water.
Although it seems as though this winter has seemed to be gripping to the calendar with frigid force this year, we hold out for summer’s insatiable glimmer of hope. According to the Lake Minnetonka Patch we’re on the verge of seeing the ice being gone… Patience…
If it hasn’t happened yet, we’re approaching that time of the year when folks are thinking about summer vacation. It’s time to think about boating.

Maybe you are looking to buy your first boat. What are some things to think about?
What kinds of activities does your family like to do? Water sports like tubing, wake boarding or skiing? Or maybe you plan on taking an occasional over the weekend trip. Will you need to think about having enough sleeping accommodations? Both situations may lead you to a different style of boat.
Maybe you’re an experienced boater but you’re thinking about getting something else.
Usually bigger – it seems like there is never enough real estate in the boat for any experienced seafarer. Whether you want some more elbow room in the galley for on the water culinary indulgence, or whether you’re looking for more space in the cockpit lounge for entertaining guests.
