The Boating Lifestyle is the Reason We’re Here

Posted on: May 25, 2016



The Boating Lifestyle is Why We Do What We Do. It’s Everything to us.


Living the boating lifestyle isn’t about nautical outfits. It’s not about deck shoes either or owning fancy things. In fact, it’s not even about owning a boat, and it certainly isn’t about having the latest toys. The boating lifestyle is about time well spent. It’s about quality time with good people. It’s about being on the open waters with the people you love. And it’s all about freedom, sharing good times, making memories, and feeling the warm breeze in your hair and the cool mist on your face. If that sounds like the kind of life you want, then #bomolife and the boating lifestyle is for you.

Boating means much more than getting on the water in a boat: it’s an opportunity for you and your family to experience the world in a new way and see things from a new perspective. Imagine waking up before dawn, getting the kids ready, and sharing a quiet breakfast before heading out in the morning to catch the biggest fish. Or think about how much fun it could be to spend a sunny day towing friends and family around as they learn to water ski. And don’t forget about swimming in new waters, learning to dive, or teaching the kids to sail. The boating lifestyle is all about families spending time together, learning together, and bonding. And doesn’t that sound better than a weekend in front of the TV and arguing about who’s had too much screen time?




While it may not be the first thing to come to mind, one great thing about the boating lifestyle is the opportunity it affords for education. This includes basic skills and useful arts that are slowly being lost, such as:

● Knot­ tying

● Driving and mechanics

● Navigation and map reading

● Water safety

● Fishing, cooking and basic survival skills

And while there’s nothing wrong with a family weekend together in the city, think about how wonderful it would be not to sit in traffic, to be surrounded by nature, and to be away from all the distractions of everyday life. Not only that, but boating is also a great way to meet new people, spend time with old friends in new ways, and learn new things about yourself. Nothing says stress relief like a quiet sail or zip around the lake, and the boating lifestyle is all about appreciating the simple things in life. There’s nothing quite like getting out on your boat with family and friends, and on top of providing some excellent opportunities to teach kids new life skills and helpful lessons, boating is also a wonderful way to build relationships and strengthen family ties. If you like the sounds of sunsets on the water, quality family time without the distractions of modern life, and a slower pace of living, come on out to Woodard Marine and see what #bomolife and the boating lifestyle could look like for your family.
