OnMoblBay is on a distinguished road
Cool Hello from Mobile Bay, Mobile, AL, USA!

I am a native Mobilian who has spent plenty of time in various types of boats on Mobile Bay! Recently, my 14 y/o son joined a relatively new/"fledgling" group of SeaScouts here in Mobile, Alabama (so I am now a SeaScout MOM/Volunteer). Although I have never owned my own boat, my parents had plenty of differing makes/models while I was growing up so I understand that whole "boat being a money hole" concept -- but maintaining so many boats on a non-existent (non-profit) budget is a challenging endeavor, to say the least.

I am looking for direction; ideas; and general boating/sailing/marine knowledge (and innovation) that I can pass along to our SeaScout kids and other adult leaders. Did I mention I'm one of the more experienced boaters in the group?

So, please bear with me while I explore and learn... Your supportive input will be much appreciated!

Hello Mobile and sister city! I'm originally from Pensacola - though now i'm living in Sacramento and learning about boating on rivers - big, fast moving rivers! Was just home a few weeks ago - before the weather turned sweltering - miss the warm, clear water. And the seafood! Sorry that i can't help you with your request - but just wanted to say hi!

More important than info gathering, you will find a that sailors love to help other sailors and we love telling stories, too.

Sit down and strap in for a great ride...the most fun you'll ever have at < 10mph.
