Elsewhere in these forums I have seen people lament that interest in boating seems to be on the decline. I believe that part of the reason is that there is no clear roadmap for outsiders to find their way into many aspects of the boating community.

A friend of mine is a lifetime member of another yacht club in Massachusetts. He told me that the way that he gained access was that he knocked on the door one day, and the person that answered the door invited him in. Perhaps I should try this?

I have been invited to join several clubs in the Boston area, but, at this time, I don't want to keep my boat there.
