Why Do People Get Hooked on Boating?

BY Magson Marine – JULY 2011

If you are a dyed-in-the-wool boater we bet you've never asked yourself that question, but some of your friends may wonder. All boaters have some things in common and that is why whenever they meet, they have so much to talk about.

Boating is not for just anyone. It takes time, money, knowledge, experience, patience, fortitude, and one must have a romantic soul. Boaters are a different breed of men and women. They value things differently than landlubbers. They love nature and like to be out in it, not sitting in front of a TV watching it on the Discovery Channel.

Please take a few minutes and let us know why you love boating.

Nothing beats seeing the sun rise while speeding over the wavesThe views are (sometimes) even better than the catchWhat a catch!It is hard to hold yourself back when there is a bite on the lineThis one did not get away
Nothing beats bumping over the wake of the boat on a tubeWhat a rush playing with your hand in the water while speeding over the wavesSkiing on sea or inland water
