Boat US used a stock Boston Whaler shot of a 130 Sport this month (January '04) in a good article on steering cable maintenance. It's an odd thing how seeing your boat's picture in a piece about steering failure can make you smile.

Hmm. I can't find that article in my Jan/05 issue. What page is it on? Or do you really mean Jan/04?

It's on p.6 of Seaworthy, Jan 2005 issue.

Oops; that's the 3rd time that's happened this week. Can't seem to forget last year. Sheila; you were right to assume 2005. That is correct. However the much bigger mistake I made was which publication from BoatUS it was in. Very sorry; it was the January 2005 Seaworthy on page six. They both came the same day and it's not hard to confuse me that way.

Sheila, you may or may not get that publication as it is sent to insureds under BoatUS. It always has great articles on preventing minor problems and disasters. It is a good bonus to already good coverage. You can also subscribe for ten bucks a year.

Charlie, I think you jinxed me! I'd been doing well for the past 11 days, and then today I wrote two checks with "2004"....

We are insured with BoatUS so I'm sure my copy of Seaworthy is on its way. The magazine arrived last week.

We have lousy mail delivery.

It was a year ago this month that I first saw that particular picture, along with others, on the Whaler web site that set me to dreaming about a simple, small, very portable boat to satisfy our urge to poke around on the water again. The Classics are great but someone has to buy the new ones too and the ride was, in my opinion, much improved with the hull changes.

The web site at Boston Whaler and their brochures caused an unbearable case of the 'I Wants' last year. Of course some of my brochures at the house were many years old and the desire was not new but it all came together in February of '04. This site was a contributing factor too. Like-minded people were obviously out there for help and support; another reason to buy and one that even Boston Whaler/Brunswick must recognize.

After an early minor glitch in the process, it was a great boating year. This year we will have the kinks ironed out and look forward to even better times. That picture in Seaworthy brought back good memories of my wife saying "yes; let's go ahead and do it" I don't hear that too often anymore.
