Everyday on the water is different. The most experienced boaters will back me up on this. And everyday, therefore, holds adventure for we who slip the lines, turn the key and crease the waves with vessels great and small. Yes, there are those lucky among us who get to take cruises of a lifetime. They cross the oceans, do The Great Loop, or simply set out for months, gunkholing their way along the coast. But boaters need not fulfill such grand ambitions in order to enjoy adventure and excitement.
