Answer: It is not recommended unless it is made specifically for boat transporting since the wind may blow it off or at minimum scratch your boat up.
Answer: If you have your boat shrink wrapped for transport make sure it is professionally done.
This is where the excitement begins — inspecting a wide range of boats to discover one that agrees your needs and financial plan. Hopefully none of you have had an experience where your boat was on its way and the transport company calls you and says there has been a slight delay, your boat is upside down in the middle of the highway! Right in the middle of the summer during Vacation time! Mike had terrible day fishing on the lake, sitting in the burning sun all day without catching a single one.
Well the folks at EZ Loader Boat Trailers have come up with a cool new gadget that can serve boaters in a unique way. Three people, including a 9-year-old, who went missing while boating off the coast of Florida over the weekend were found dead Monday, along with one survivor. VanDutch elevates customer experience with Boatyard’s on-demand boat services marketplace.
The group at Yamaha has created a new animal for the watersports world and just like their award winning jet sport boat models their new single engine jet drive center console is sure to be a hit. I have been Scanning Manufacturer sites for new and great innovations to write about and couldn't help but notice how many websites were so badly made. There are a few things to be prepared for before you start trailering your boat even just to the lake outside town.1. There are many misconceptions when it comes to Jet Skis floating around out there, especially when it comes to those that may not have ever had the opportunity to take a ride on one. We all know that the President of the United States today is traveling around the globe frequently but do we always know how? During a boat show, you can expect all of dealerships will be putting out their best deals. Getting your boat ready as regards appearance and repairs is the initial move towards finding a buyer for her.

Since then they have travelled more than 40,000 nautical miles exploring many interesting and varied regions.
During the next four years we toured the Mediterranean, crossed the Atlantic and cruised the Caribbean, Panama Canal and Central America to the Sea of Cortez before a Pacific Ocean crossing to our home in Sydney.Our latest adventure has been a circumnavigation of mainland Australia. We are an open, friendly wakeboarding community, so join our forums and find a third in San Diego, discuss boards, boats, bindings, share riding tips, and most importantly: meet some new friends! The ruggedly handsome outdoorsman backs his truck with a bass boat on a trailer down the ramp.
We departed Sydney in April 2010 and travelled to Cairns with minimal stops as we had cruised this coastline on previous occasions.A DATE WITH DONOnce in Cairns, the excitement started to build because farther north, we were to meet up with Trade-a-Boat’s adventure writer Don McIntyre and his crew on Talisker Bounty Boat. They were doing a re-enactment of Captain Bligh’s trip from Tonga to Timor in a small open boat.Film maker Stuart Kershaw joined us in Cairns and we cruised north to Restoration Island, keeping in touch with Bounty Boat by sat phone. We carry an additional $200,000 insurance policy to protect you from any unforeseen events. As Don and crew approached Bligh’s Passage — a break in the Great Barrier Reef where the namesake Captain safely transited — we went to meet them. The Passage is relatively narrow, with breaking waves on both sides and once through it and into the Coral Sea, Stuart started filming Bounty Boat. We spent the best part of a week with them at Restoration Island, before cruising north to Cape York and Horn Island in Torres Strait with Stuart filming for a documentary.Horn Island played an important part in the defence of Australia during World War II, with as many as 10,000 Allied troops in the area.
We visited the Military Museum to gain a better understanding of this period in our history. DARWIN SLEIGH RIDEAfter leaving Torres Strait we crossed the Gulf of Carpentaria, island hopped across Arnhem Land and into Darwin.We had been warned about the strong tidal currents, which can work in your favour — or not —depending on your timing. We departed Port Essington at the start of a rising tide to pick up the westerly flowing water in the Arafura Sea, rounded Cape Don into Dundas Strait — still with strong current — and into Van Diemen Gulf to arrive at a central point where the two tides meet.
We then went with the outgoing tide, past Cape Hotham into Clarence Strait to meet the incoming tide at Beagle Gulf to take this into Port Darwin.
It was very enjoyable to use the tides in this way.KIMBERLEY WILDERNESSFrom Darwin the next part of our journey was along the Kimberley Coast.
It has spectacular scenery, with ancient eroded river gorges, towering red sandstone cliffs, many islands and abundant wildlife. As this area is a long distance from the East Coast and not on the world cruising route, very few cruisers visit and hence not many people get to view it from the sea. And there are only two places where land-based travellers can gain access to the coastline.
One of these is McGowan Island Beach Resort (aka primitive camping ground with good fishing). The manager explained that he barges in fuel from Wyndham and transfers it into his road tanker. To refuel our boat, we nudged into the sandy beach on a rising tide and the long hose from the tanker was passed to us.CROCS LIKE RIBSThroughout Northern Australia territorial saltwater crocodiles are in abundance.
For this reason, we also had a tinny (aluminium dinghy) that we used in areas we knew crocodiles lived.
TIP: When you encounter a crocodile by all means stop to observe but if he starts to take an interest in you or starts to approach with jaws open, then you must depart rapidly!In the western part of the Kimberley, north of Cape Leveque, we saw many humpback whales. They provided a panorama of breaching, tail slapping and other whale antics and were happy to approach the boat and check us out. They migrate from the Southern Ocean up the west coast of Australia to calve and enjoy the warmer waters.Pearl farming is a big industry along the Kimberley Coast. Very good water quality, protected bays and shallow depths provide an ideal environment for oyster growth.On a couple of occasions we went ashore to view Aboriginal art, found in many sites along the Kimberley Coast.


This art is usually done on rock walls, under overhanging cliffs and depicts animals, humans, mythical beasts, weapons and food. Mandurah was a good port to haul out for routine maintenance.Our Nordhavn 46 has paravane roll stabilisers (floppers) and our normal procedure upon leaving port is to deploy the poles. Under these circumstances the paravanes work well and we experience a more comfortable ride. If the swells are particularly short and sharp, we may adjust course and slow the boat down. During our circumnavigation of mainland Australia, we used the paravanes about 25 per cent of the time.PROVISIONINGConsiderable thought goes into provisioning for a long passage — no "popping down to the store" if you run out of something!
The galley has a gimballed three-burner gas cooktop and oven, which makes for easy cooking in most conditions. We believed the most appropriate time to cross the Great Australian Bight in from February to March, when it’s warm and the weather systems are more stable and reliable.We left Port Bouvard in early February and headed south to round Cape Leeuwin. This is the junction of the Southern and Indian Oceans and consequently can experience extreme conditions. The next major port was Esperance and we waited here for a weather window to cross the Bight.BOM SITEThe Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) has a very reliable site for marine and ocean forecasts that we use. We departed Esperance on the "back" of a high and arrived at St Francis Island — one of 19 in the Nuyts Archipelago — 600nm and four days later, prior to the strengthening winds as forecast by the BOM. St Francis Island was run as a sheep station and for growing crops such as lucerne, wheat and barley, but in 1972 it was dedicated as a conservation park. We were able to go ashore, enjoy the beach, fish for King George whiting, be entertained by the Australian sea lion, view many bird species and walk to the deserted farmhouse on the escarpment and enjoy the magnificent view.We spent several days at the Port Lincoln Marina.
One of the activities is to go out on a boat to view the great white sharks that are common in this area.
SA WINEAdelaide was our next major stop and we had a berth at the newly constructed Cruising Yacht Club of SA’s marina at North Haven.
These excursions were so much more enjoyable for us, particularly as we had a winemaker friend as company and he educated us on the winemaking industry.Leaving Adelaide for Melbourne, we stopped off at Encounter Bay on the Fleurieu Peninsula and wondered about the chance meeting of the English Captain Matthew Flinders, with the French expedition led by Nicholas Baudin more than 200 years ago. Both men were leading voyages of exploration for their respective countries to chart the land then known as Terra Australis.RIP RIGHT We had to plan our entrance into Port Philip Bay to coincide with slack tide as strong adverse currents can be experienced in The Rip between the heads. We thoroughly enjoyed the ease of cycling along the Yarra River, around the Bay and through the City.The most southerly point of mainland Australia is Wilsons Promontory. With an early morning departure from Oberon Bay on the Prom’s western side, we witnessed the lighthouse and cottages on the headland bathed in brilliant sunshine.The trip along the NSW coast was memorable because of the very large, long-frequency swells coming from the Southern Ocean. Quite a contrast to the short, sharp chop more commonly experienced with wind-induced conditions.
With a 10m tidal range, massive tidal movements create oddities like the Kimberley's Horizontal Falls.4). Catching up with our man Don McIntyre and crew as they head for Timor in the Talisker Bounty Boat.8).
This part of the Kimberley is so remote the manager has to barge in fuel from Wyndham and transfer it to a road tanker.11).
