3 Tips for Buying Your First Boat

You have money. You have a dream. You’re ready to buy your own boat and get to sailing on the water, but where do you even begin? Where do you look for these kinds of vessels? How can you be sure that you’re getting a good deal when you finally find one? If you’re in the market for a new boat, here are just a few things to keep in mind as you shop.

1. Know What You Need

There’s a big difference between a commercial fishing boat and a yacht meant for leisurely afternoons on the lake. If you need a boat for a specific purpose, place or activity, do some research about what will best suit your needs. This will help you narrow down categories and boat models before you start shopping, and it can also serve as a “direction” when it comes to choosing boat manufacturers in the first place.

2. Consider Its Specs

There’s more to a boat than length and width. There’s also a thing called weight capacity, and you’ll want to pay attention to this if a lot of people or products will be hauled around the water. There might also be power requirements if your boat is operated with an electric motor. What can you handle? What can you afford?

3. Mind Your Budget

Speaking of price, you’ll definitely want a budget before you go shopping for your new watercraft. There’s no “average” price for boats, so you could wind up spending anywhere from hundreds to thousands of dollars on your new baby. You’ll probably want some kind of line in the sand where things get too expensive for you. Remember, you might also need to buy things like fuel and deck accessories in addition to the boat itself!

These are just three tips for buying your first boat. As you can see, it’s just as complicated as buying a car or some other form of transportation, so take your time. Do it right. Look for reputable boat dealers Naples FL who can make sure that you’re getting a good deal.

Araw Ng Kagitingan : The Day Of Valor

Yes, Araw ng Kagitingan is also known as the Day of Valor, in the Philippines it occurs on April 9. Aside from it was named as The Day of Valor, it was also known as Bataan Day, or Bataan and Corregidor Day. The Day of Valor is a long weekend for us here in the Philippines; it commemorates the fall of Bataan, the heroism of Filipinos and American soldiers when Japanese occupied Philippines during World War II.

Picture not mine

Major General Edward P. King surrendered more than 76,000 American, Chinese and Filipinos soldiers at dawn on April 09, 1942. Japanese possessed forcefully the belonging of these starving, disease ridden soldiers. The soldiers were forced to march 140 kilometer to Camp O Donell in Tarlac. Many of them died during the march due to starvation, dehydration and disease before they could even finish it. Only some were able to survive, they could not even count the exact soldiers who died in the march because some prisoners managed also to escape from their guards.

Despite the defeat, the soldiers remained strong until  they eventually retook the Bataan Peninsula on February 08, 1945. The Day of Valor was a national observance but eventually they made it national public holiday to honor and pay tribute to those Filipinos who fought for freedom and democracy.

Will Stay Or Not?

I will be getting a bonus on April from my February performance and I am planning to spend some of it for a stay in a hotel in downtown. We never been to this hotel before, this is one of the newest hotel in downtown. I want to experience staying in the said hotel even just for a day with my kids of course. But I can only do that if I would still continue working so that means I may need to stay for longer time. Because I have plans of getting bonus every month but how can I do that when my score did not pass for this month. There’s only one week left and my detractors are coming for this week. I am so devastated; I already exerted my effort to at least not to get any detractor but I failed and what bad thing is that it is coming like nonstop. I can’t seem to shield it from coming. I guess if I need to treat my kids for a one night stay at Seda, I need to work so hard for the month of April. Lord please help me!
