I'm sure you've noticed a couple of changes on the blog - like, ahem.....advertising. Yes, we've gone commercial in an effort to purchase a 68 foot Swan and hire a crew of HooterGirls so that I can sit back and drink wine in comfort. Here's the deal: I'll give a free download of Sailing South - First Timer's Guide to the ICW to the first person who can identify why that comment is BS - this ought to be interesting...leave your answer in the comment box below.
Seriously however, a number of people have asked me to find deals and discounts and that's what I'm hoping to do for all - so if you shop at West Marine online, linking from here at BloggingtheICW - you get $15 off on a $200 purchase and, let's face it, it's not hard to spend $200 on your boat.
Also, be watching for the opportunity to save money on your Boat US tow package and on Boat US boat insurance, coming soon.
Since most of you with boats have a towing package, this ought to be a no brainer for you! Save money, promote LiveBlogging, help Wally get his new boat (ahem!)....
Also, new posts will have a twitter and facebook share link on them - if you're too frugal to buy something from West Marine (or you don't own a boat!), you can help out by sharing the blog to others...
Tomorrow, it's back underway, to Coinjock (where to they GET these names) and from there, onto the Albermarle Sound and on to Belhaven. The temperatures are picking up and will be into the mid to high 60s this weekend, making for a nice sail to Oriental, and then Beaufort NC.
Remember, tell me what's bogus about the second paragraph up above, and win a copy of Sailing South.
