Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
– Mark Twain
If you are like me, it doesn’t take much to conjure up a picture of sailing on the sea with the wind blowing through your hair. Boating is a relaxing pastime and is known to improve mental alertness and an appreciation for the outdoors.
Assuring onboard safety should be a primary concern before taking your boat out. Nautical Know How has a comprehensive pre-season checklist for preparing your boat. It’s worth looking at because it covers everything from general items to engine and sails. When you need to upgrade or replace your standing boat rigging or lifelines, Cable Industries is your best source for complete assemblies manufactured from high quality stainless steel cable and stainless or silicon bronze hardware.
