To say Australians love the waters is a huge understatement. Chances are, if it were viable to live on the waters for months on end, most Australians would have taken the ride – at the drop of a hat. Of course, this is assuming you have kept your boat sea-worthy through the years.
One thing’s certain, bonding with your loved ones on a boat could be the best adventure for everyone. Then again, you can’t go places if the condition of your water vessel is highly questionable, states clearrrenew.com.au.
A National Love Affair
Throw in a holiday and you’ll see Aussies do a mini-migration jampacking the highways with just about every SUV, 4WD and hatchback you can find. A quick look at the goods they’re packing in their exterior racks should make their destination obvious: surfboards, fishing rods, mountain bikes etc. Owe it to the sweltering heat, whenever there’s plenty of time to spare Aussies head out to sea, a most favoured destination second only to the vast Outback.
Strategically, state capitals are situated on or near the coast allowing commerce to thrive in the age of shipping. Today, over 8 out of every 10 Australians are living within a 50-kilometre radius from a coastline. And this population’s rising.
Best by Boat
But there may never be a better way to enjoy the sea than by boat. Whereas you’re left looking at the horizon when you’re at the beach, you can enjoy natural landscapes and marine culture better within a sea vessel. Most significantly, you unite the whole family in one grand adventure of true quality time in a boat.
Then again, it’s assuming your boat is sea-worthy. If you’re a newbie, giving the vessel a boat painting should be a good start. When you do so, you discourage waterborne critters and growth (e.g., weeds, aquatic organisms, barnacles) from attaching themselves and causing substantial damage in the process. Additionally, there’s a laundry list of things you need to do to get your boat in tip-top shape.
It would seem like a tall order but for the adventure that awaits you, it’s a trifle. Still, no one wants an adventure filled with worry – get your paints in order and you would be set to focus on the thrills.
