The Health Benefits of Boating
Surprisingly, the benefits of boating include much more than merely stress relief. In a recent study by the Impulse Research Corporation, the physical perks of a life on the water far exceed the norm. The study determined that families who actively boat are healthier in general, more optimistic about life, possess leadership skills superior to their peers, and are more socially involved in other areas. That’s a lot of benefit!
DIY Boat Repair
As with anything, boat ownership may require a bit of TLC every now and again. That’s where Protective Coating Company comes in handy! Boat owners need to get dirty with some DIY fixes because boat repair can get costly.
There are many forums online where boat owners and enthusiasts come together to discuss repairs, how-to’s, and best practices. When it comes to keeping boats watertight, an epoxy bond has to be strong and it has to last. We have found that PC-Marine™ and PC-11® are the go-to choices for most boating enthusiasts.
