Whether you are avid angler or a recreational boater, you must be familiar with the unmatchable feeling that being out under the sun on the open water feels like. Often work commitments, family obligations and other distractions come in the way of us taking out the time to do we enjoy most – so this year, why not make an extra effort to spend more time on your boat, whether its adventure or relaxation you are looking for.
If you’re still unsure how to pull time out of your busy schedule, here are 3 reasons that can tempt you into planning a boat day more often:
Best place to get some much deserved me-time
Your boat is probably the best place for you to be able to find some time just for yourself, where you can relax and unwind in peace. Take along a book, some music, beverages, and snacks and treat yourself to some solo time surrounded by nature. Being outdoors isn’t just great for your physical health, but also has a lot of benefits for your mental wellness. Make sure to pack sunscreen and have some extra gear onboard in case it gets too hot, or you are greeted by some passing rain.
Also, ideal place for quality family time
Another great advantage of being a boat owner is having a space where you and your family can collectively disconnect from daily distractions and enjoy some quality time together. Watch the passing bird species, soak in the sun, jump in for some watersports together or teach your kids how to drop a line and land a bite – however you choose to spend your boat day with your family, it will be time well spent.
Breaking the monotony of daily life
To take a break from your regular routine, why not spend some more time on your boat learning a new skill? If you enjoy fishing, start learning some new techniques and experimenting with different lures and baits to attract various species. If you are struggling to catch up with old friends, use your boat as a perfect venue to get everyone together and if you have a special celebration coming up, host it on your vessel and make it even more memorable.
