M/V Our Pleasure @ National Harbor

This is just a small collection of photos from our boating trip up to National Harbor, Maryland. We didn’t stay the night (this time), but plan on taking advantage of the beautiful marina again in the near future for a weekend get-away! The docks are very nice and there are so many restaurants to choose from within walking distance of the marina… it’s an excellent place for an overnighter! Oh yeah, Mike was with us on this trip wasn’t he… check out the photos!!

On The Blocks at PWM…

The M/V “Our Pleasure” on blocks at Prince William Marina

Every two years we have to have our boat, M/V “Our Pleasure”, pulled from the waters of the Potomac and blocked at Prince William Marina for maintenance. Well this was the year and along with the usual cleaning and bottom paint she also need a good compounding and waxing and all the zincs replaced this time around. While she was high and dry, I also had the fiberglass guy stop by and fix a large crack in the swim platform from where we got blown into a piling during a bad storm two years ago. Oh yea, there’s always something to fix with a boat… after all, that’s what BOAT stands for you know… “Break Out Another Thousand”!!

The guys at PWM are great and along with the outstanding service and high quality of workmanship, I even got a little break on the price for being such a good customer (what ever that means). Regardless of cost, boat maintenance is a necessary evil and with out it… well lets just say that a boat won’t last long if not properly maintained. So after a little more than a week of being out of the water and up on blocks, it looks like “Our Pleasure” is again ready for another fun filled boating season on the Potomac! Enjoy the photos and check out that wax job…!!!

The Memorial Day Weekend..

The thing I like most about the Memorial Day weekend is that it signifies the start of Summer. This is also one of the best weekends for boating in my opinion. Face it, after a long winter everyone has the itch to hit the water for the long three day weekend… and this year the weather was most¬†cooperative! Here are a few photos from the weekend events on the water at Belmont Bay… Enjoy!
