Boatbound, Getting Your Boat To Pay For Itself!

With the boating season upon us, the marinas are starting to fill up, and we’re looking forward to taking advantage of the lakes, rivers and bays that make New York one of the great locations to get out on the water.  Despite the enthusiasm, most boat owners only use their boats a dozen or so times a year, but the costs can be staggering.  Now there’s a way to offset the expenses.  Boatbound is the nation’s fastest growing peer-peer boat rental marketplace letting owners connect directly with pre-screened renters.  What this means is that by connecting you to a community of other boaters, who either don’t own or on vacation, you can offset your costs with only a couple rentals per month.

 Celebrate the 100th anniversary of the NYS Barge Canal on May 15th and 16th in Waterford.  The changes made to the canal system back in 1915 reflect most closely with the version of the canal we travel on today.  The locks currently on the Canal are the same as the ones built 100 years ago and in 2015 we celebrate the centennial of what we know today as the NYS Barge Canal.

Waterford will start the celebration on May 15th at 10:30 am along the harbor followed by a ceremony at the top of Lock E2.

Arcadia is a 1972 38’ Egg Harbor Sport Fisherman.  She has a fiberglass hull with a wood top deck, similar to many boats of that generation.  Her owners are a military family who has been transferred to Florida and are offering a unique opportunity to the right individual(s).  Her current owners purchased her in 2010 from a famous German artist from Manhattan that enjoyed her for years at the dock while she rest idle since he had no prior boating experience. 

The previous owner invested a lot of money into having a large section of the bow deck cut out and replaced, as well as having the fly bridge rebuilt with divinycell to avoid any future issues with the wood.  Since the current owners have had her they have continued to replace portions of the wood top deck.   They have had custom fabricated mahogany top cap built to be installed on the gunwale which is waiting in the cabin for finish installation
