Heading To A Boat Show? Remember These 3 Key Tips

February 4, 2013

All throughout the spring, summer and fall months, most of us are out on the water. If the weather’s nice, we’re boating. Every weekend, for sure, and maybe even a quite a few “personal” days when the opportunity arises. But when the weather gets colder, our thoughts turn from boating to boat shows.  Whether you’re looking for your first boat or you’re in the market to upgrade, winter boat shows help us keep the fire burning until our glorious spring launch...    Read More ]

Finding The Right Dealer Is Key To A Great Boating Experience

January 31, 2013

  While there are some similarities between a car dealership and a boat dealership, you may be surprised at how much they don’t have in common. Sure, they both have showrooms, shiny new vehicles and salespeople. But with few exceptions, a car purchase comes down to function and price. And even if you wind up getting your automobile serviced at the dealership, it tends to be a fairly anonymous event. Buying a boat, however, could easily be characterized as starting a relationship.

Join The Party! A Guide To Boat Raft-Ups

June 6, 2012

At one time or another, you’ve probably seen a group of boats banded together in a floating, fun-loving, makeshift community.  And when you see everyone swimming, grilling, laughing, dancing and generally having a great time, you might just ask yourself: How can I join the party? Raft-ups are great way to enjoy spending time with friends, family and, occasionally, complete strangers. As with any worthwhile endeavor, however, there are both time-honored traditions and unwritten rules one...    Read More ]

Can’t We All Just Get Along? Basic Boating Etiquette

May 15, 2012

Even if you’re new to boating, you probably already know the basics about the “Rules of the Road.” Those are the general things you need to know when operating your boat, especially when there are other boats in the area such as how to know who has the right of way and when it’s okay to pass another vessel. But there is another category of customs and traditions that help us, as boaters, get along independently while respecting that right for others. We’ll just call...    Read More ]

Wake Up! An Up-Close Look At Boat Watersports

April 20, 2012

As much as we all enjoy a leisurely sunset cruise, part of the fun of boating is the opportunity to not only get out on the water, but also to get wet once in a while. And if you’ve got younger passengers, your boat will likely be decked out with a hefty collection of different equipment…some familiar and some not so familiar. So, let’s take a closer look at some of the most popular watersports today. Please remember to ALWAYS wear a life jacket when participating in any of these...    Read More ]

Understanding Boating Superstitions (Knock On Wood)

April 13, 2012

Let’s face it…boaters are a superstitious bunch. You’ve got to believe that storied history goes all the way back to the days of the earliest ocean-going vessels, when everything from bad weather to scurvy were connected to various perceived transgressions by crewmembers and (more likely) unknowing passengers. String enough of those coincidences together, and the word spreads quickly that something as innocent as bringing a banana onboard can wreak havoc on a voyage that would...    Read More ]

Easy Tips For Launch Ramp Success

April 9, 2012

Fiberglass=Happiness

April 4, 2012

In addition to fiberglass, gelcoat, and upholstery, there's something else we measure every day at the Hurricane boat plant. It's morale. Because happy workers are motivated workers and motivated workers build the best boats in the industry. Look closely at this chart. You can see that right now, during our busiest time of year, morale is right at 100%. You'd think that having a full pipeline of orders that need to be shipped out might affect morale in less-than-positive way. But it doesn't. These...    Read More ]

Before You Hit The Water...Do You Know The Rules?

April 2, 2012

Okay new boaters…why do you think they call it the “Rules of the Road” if you’re on the water? Well, despite the confusing name, it’s all about relating your boat-operating experience to something you’re likely already familiar with…driving a car. But, although they may have some things in common, it’s important that you take some time to understand the differences. You see, these rules are all about avoiding the single biggest critical incident...    Read More ]

Need To See A Shrink?

April 2, 2012

Here's what happens to new boats before they're loaded on the truck for delivery. Yep, it IS pretty cool. Of course, this takes place in the quality control center after SEVEN different inspectors sign off on the boat. That's every single boat that leaves the plant. The shrink wrap, of course, keeps the gel coat from getting scratched and keeps the boat clean for the duration of the trip, and during the time before you fall in love with it and strike a great deal with your local dealer.
