Summer is the prime time to take your boat out on the water to enjoy warm weather and cool water whether you’re fishing, tubing, or taking a leisurely ride. But boating can get expensive when you factor in gas prices, repairs, and even the cost of providing life jackets for everyone aboard. Boat Owners Association of The United States offers nine tips to help summer boaters stay on budget.
What’s the catch for discounts? Some require BoatUS or BoatUS Angler membership, which cost just $24 annually and includes $50 of free on the water or on the road towing, 24-hour dispatch, and access to programs and services that make the boating, sailing or fishing experience better.
