The 2022 boating season is almost here! Sorry, didn’t mean to shout. Here’s a fun fact for you, most Americans live under an hour from a navigable body of water. Say what?! And if you’re in the Coeur d’Alene or Spokane area, that statistic is even smaller. It’s surprising there aren’t more people out there!

So here are 3 fantastic reasons to go boating season

Bonding Time: According to a study done by the National Marine Manufacturer’s Association, 40% of all households say relaxing with family and friends is their favorite boating activity. Plus, it’s far more engaging than watching TV. So get out there and find out what boating activity is your friend’s favorite.

Recreational Boating Reduces Stress: Getting out on a boat allows you to leave the hassles of job and home repair behind while also enjoying the warm glow of an evening sunset and hanging out with friends and family. Breathe in that fresh air and enjoy the sun while the weather’s nice.
