Getting The Most Out Of Your Fishing Charter Experience

One of the most thrilling things you can do during a trip to Cabo San Lucas is to take a trip on a Cabo fishing charter. If you’ve never gone on a charter fishing expedition, there are a few things you should know before you climb aboard. Here are some helpful hints to get the most out of your adventure.

Choose The Right Shoes

To stay safe and prevent slipping on a wet deck, be sure to wear a pair of shoes that provide traction. Rubber-soles with grips, such as those found on deck shoes, are the best choice. Remember that the boat may be very wet, so be prepared to part ways with your shoes in the event that they become soaked with seawater.

Bring A Personal Emergency Kit

Even if you’ve been on a boat before, you might not know how you’ll react on the choppy waters you’ll encounter on a charter fishing boat. Be sure to pack medication for motion sickness and over-the-counter pain relievers in the event you develop a headache. You’ll also need sunblock to prevent sunburn and sunburn relief lotion in the event you develop a sunburn. Remember that sunlight reflects on water, making it easier for you to get burnt even with sunblock. 

Pack A Cooler

Some charter boat companies offer light snacks and beverages, but many do not. Pack a small cooler or insulated bag with bottled water and a few snacks so you can stay hydrated and stave off hunger during a long trip. In some cases, inclement weather could extend your time at sea, and you don’t want to be without food and water until you return safely to shore.

Don’t Forget Your Camera

Cabo San Lucas is the perfect spot for fishing. You may get to see sharks, tuna and mackerel. Depending on how far out your boat takes you, it’s possible you may encounter whales as well. Be sure to have your camera with you so you can take pictures and capture video of these majestic creatures. You’ll also be able to bring back proof of your big catch to share with friends and family. Consider investing in a water-proof camera so you don’t damage your smartphone or traditional digital camera.

If you get the chance to visit Cabo San Lucas, be sure to take some time to enjoy a fishing charter trip. Whether you are an experienced angler or you’ve never fished before, you’ll have a great time as long as you are prepared when you board the boat.

2 Tips For Choosing The Most Appropriate Inflatable For Your Child’s Birthday Party

As a parent, there is no doubt that a large inflatable jumping house or castle has an important and popular role at birthday parties, but their safe and fun use is also an immense responsibility. Whether your child is turning 2 or 10, a birthday party is often more memorable and enjoyable when a bouncy house or castle is present. Fortunately, there are three easy tips that can make your child’s birthday party the best party for everyone involved.

Verify Whose Responsibility Delivery, Setup and Pickup Is

It is important to consider the weight and size of any inflatable. Unless you have extensive experience or knowledge of larger inflatables, it is usually a better idea to choose a company that will take responsibility for each aspect of getting it to your home or party location, setting it up and then removing it from your home at the agreed upon time.

Otherwise, you will have a significant amount of risk, including the very real possibilities of:

  • Injury to one or more of your guests

  • Damage to the inflatable

  • Damage to your home or property

Even if you get a lower quote for doing some of the work, inflatables should not be a do-it-yourself project for amateurs. It is also a good idea to allow a few extra minutes at the time of delivery so that you can become familiar with the specific details of your temporary inflatable unit.

Consider The Size Of Your Youngest And Oldest Guests

It is easy to assume that if the birthday party is for a group of eight year old children, that you should choose an inflatable for that age group. However, that could easily be a mistake since the unit will usually be rated for a maximum number of users at any given time, as opposed to individual guests.

If you have an enthusiastic cousin or one of your guests is big for their age, you should consider them all before choosing a unit. In addition, always be sure that you are able to keep track of the number and approximate weight of everyone using the inflatable, so that you can be sure that everyone is as safe as possible.

In conclusion, renting an inflatable allows you with the opportunity to make your child’s birthday party a fun and memorable experience for everyone. By making the most appropriate choice of rental units and planning ahead, you will make it memorable and safe.

Safety Tips For Boating Beginners

If you are new to boating, you want to make sure you learn about boating safety. While this article will provide you with boating safety tips in general, it will also cover issues you need to know about if you plan on boating in an outboard boat. Read the information below before you go out on the boat:

Have enough life jackets

Even if everyone in the boat won’t be wearing a life jacket (which they should), you still need to have one life jacket on board for every passenger in the boat. Make sure the jackets are the right size for your passengers. Children and anyone who’s not an excellent swimmer should wear their life jackets at all times while in the boat.

Watch the weather

Always check the weather forecast before you head out. Also, pay attention to changes in the weather while you are on the boat. Storms can move in fast, so you want to head for shore any time you notice dark clouds rolling in or the wind suddenly picks up.

Have another driver on board

Make sure there is another person on the boat who knows how to drive it well enough to get it to shore in case there is an emergency with the driver.

Make your whereabouts known

You want to make a list of everyone that’s going on the boat with you and include their name, address and phone number. Write down the boat information and your travel plans, as well as the types of communication you will have on the boat. Leave this information with someone who will not be going on the boat with you and let them know the latest you would expect to be back to shore. When you get to shore, call them and let them know.

Don’t run the boat into shallow water

You want to cut the motor when you are approaching shallow water. This is especially true when you are in an outboard boat. This is a boat where the motor and propeller are situated outside the boat. When you come to shallow water in an outboard, turn the motor off and lift the motor up to avoid having the prop damaged.

Don’t let swimmers in the water with the motor running

In an outboard boat, the propeller is submerged and spinning at a fast rate of speed. This makes for a dangerous situation for swimmers. You always want to cut the motor and make sure the prop has come to a stop before swimmers enter the water.

By following these tips, you can feel better prepared for your boat outing. Always make sure everyone on board has been well-versed in where the life jackets are stored and make sure everyone is wearing sun screen.

For more information about outboard motor boats, contact a professional like All Seasons Honda & Peninsula Ski-Doo.

3 Tips To Clean Your Boat Lift Canopy

You probably already know that it’s important to protect your boat lift from the elements. Luckily, all you need is a boat lift canopy to keep it safe. If you want to count on your canopy to protect your boat lift, however, you obviously have to keep it in good shape as well. Fortunately, properly caring for your boat lift canopy is easy, and it mostly only includes keeping it clean. Follow these tips, and this part of maintenance should be a breeze.

1. Use the Right Cleanser

First of all, you should be careful about the type of cleanser that you use to clean your boat lift cover. Bleach and harsh cleansers can cause your vinyl canopy to break down over time, so you should only use a gentle cleanser. You can purchase a vinyl cleanser to do the job, but a cheaper and better option is to mix up a nice solution of gentle soap and water. In fact, you can even use dish soap and water, which you can combine in a bucket. Then, you can use a soft-bristled brush and the soapy mixture to clean away any mildew, mold, salt water and other debris from your vinyl canopy.

2. Let it Dry

Make sure that you do not store or use your boat lift canopy until it has dried completely. The best course of action is to hang it up, such as on a clothesline, to allow it to air dry in the sun.

3. Add a Vinyl Protectant

Each time that you clean your boat lift canopy, you should apply a vinyl protectant. This is because your cover is exposed to the elements on a daily basis, between the salt water, the rain, the sunlight and more, which can all cause damage over time. You can purchase a vinyl protectant from most shops that sell boat lift canopies, and you can carefully apply this protectant with a paper towel or a clean, soft rag. Make sure that you only apply the protectant after your cover has dried completely after cleaning, and do not use it until the protectant has dried as well.

You probably count on your boat lift canopy to help keep your boat lift safe. Luckily, keeping it clean and protected will help it do its job. Follow these steps a few time each year, and you should be able to keep your boat lift canopy in its best possible shape.
