Beating the Bad Weather Blues

The 2013 boating has lacked a little sunshine lately, but everyone at Hamlin's Marina on the Penobscot River seems to be making the most of it.  It seems as though every time the sun peaks out, the docks are mobbed with people.  When the rain pours down, everyone huddles together on the larger cruisers.

This week we are having an in-water boat show.  The Hamlin's staff kicked it off Saturday evening with a wakeboard session on a new 2013 Stingray 208.  I've got to tell you that this boat is awesome!

With nine people on board, we had no problem pulling riders with the Mercruiser 220 HP I/O.   The weather was far from perfect, and it was a bit chilly for those without wetsuits! That didn't stop us from having a blast and coming in Monday morning with some sore body parts.  I think Reid Garrity is our staff pro, as he was the only one who pulled of Big Air on purpose.  Everyone else only pulled off Big Air during our wipeouts.

Monday was a spectacular day...sunny and Mid-70s.  Plenty of folks came out to demo the boats on the docks including a Scout Dorado 210, the Stingray 208 (a crowd favorite), and some of big boy boats like the 262 Abaco and Eastern 248
Rain or shine, come down to Hamlin's Marina and try out that boat you've been drooling over!  We all know it's going to be hot and sticky soon, and you don't want to be watching from the shore.
