I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Dad Central for Discover Boating. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

our lakeWe live on a lake, Lee’s brother lives on a lake, and her father lives on the ocean. Yes, we know something about boating. So it makes sense that Lee and I have become Ambassadors for Discover Boating. It is really Lee’s brother that is the king of boating. He has the boat, the jet skis, and the trailer to tote everything around. Sometimes we are at the lake and other times we go into the ocean.

Personally, I (Paul) like the ocean. There is something about the grandness of the open sea that I find mesmerizing. Being out on a calm sea with no one within view is one of the most relaxing ways to spend a day. When we first got married, my father in law had a 34 foot trawler. When docked in the harbor, this was our love boat. (We were newlyweds. What do you expect?) When he took it out, we would go to Catalina Island and spend a day or two. We always liked the isthmus because it was less populated.

Under the category of what boating means to me, I had a water phobia. I did not swim well and, when Lee and I first got married, I would shower oddly. Water could not touch my face. Lee is a big water lover so my fears did not work for either of us. We started to do some hypnosis and desensitization exercises. Fast forward, my crowning achievement was going out to the middle of the ocean and snorkeling. Yes, I was scared out of my wits but I did it. (Apparently, people without hydrophobia consider snorkeling in the ocean a bit scary so it was not just me.)

Like Discover Boating on Facebook and follow them on Twitter. They have a lot of good resources and will be kicking off a contest.
