Growing up, I always had an interest in watersports. However, while I spent my younger years as an avid surfer and scuba diver, I never knew much about boats. You see, I didn’t grow up in a boating family or even really know anyone with a boat. I always thought owning a boat and being a good boater was a generational thing passed down in families. If you didn’t have that experience, you couldn’t be a boater.
I decided to prove myself wrong by taking a boating class and learning the ins and outs of operating a vessel. I quickly realized that boating is not just for those who grew up around it but for anyone with a passion for the water. With time, I gained more confidence and knowledge, and soon enough, I was able to confidently navigate a boat on my own.
What I love about boating is the freedom it provides. There’s nothing quite like being out on the open water, feeling the wind in your hair and the sun on your face. It’s a chance to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and connect with nature. Whether fishing, waterskiing or just cruising around, boating offers endless possibilities for adventure.
I’m grateful that I didn’t let my lack of experience hold me back from pursuing my love of boating. It just goes to show that with a little determination and willingness to learn, anyone can become a skilled boater. And who knows, maybe one day I’ll even pass down my love of boating to future generations of my own family.
