Boat Dock AccessoriesWritten by Thomas Holley
Boat dock accessories can help customize your boat dock to be not only more functional, but also more enjoyable for yourself and others you may take on boating adventures.
There are a variety of different boat dock accessories available for you to purchase to outfit your boat dock and turn it in to boat dock of your dreams.
If you use your dock not only as a place to store your boat, but also as a location to entertain, you may want to consider boat dock accessories such as a gazebo or another type of shaded roof structure. Purchasing some sort of shaded roof structure will allow you to spend time out on your boat dock during warmer months without being completely exposed to sun. A shaded roof can give you an indoor refuge while you are still outdoors, and surrounded by water on your boat dock.
You may also want to include, along with a shaded roof or gazebo, some sort of boat dock accessory that will provide seating for you and your guests while on dock. Boat dock accessories such as benches can not only provide seating, but depending on bench that you choose can also make your boat dock more attractive to look at.
Avoid Boat Buying FraudWritten by Tim Gottschalk
If you have attempted to sell a boat (or car, etc.) on internet, chances are you may have come across prospective buyers offering to buy your boat for more than it is worth.
The story usually goes something like this. They email you telling you they like your boat. They (or their client) want to buy boat, and have you ship it overseas to Nigeria, or some similar country. The prospective buyer will send you a cashier's check for more than amount. The buyer may tell you this additional amount will be used to cover shipping cost. Another tact they use is to tell you they have a debtor in US that owes them money. You settle with debtor for amount of boat, and send them difference.
If you are approached with this situation, Please proceed with extreme caution. These scammers will go to trouble of sending you a check via certified mail that is a forgery. At first glance checks appear real. But in reality are not worth paper they are printed on. Just remember; certified checks are NOT GUARANTEED. Your bank will honor check and give you cash against it. A counterfeit cashier's check may not be discovered until weeks after it has been cashed. When forgery is discovered, you will be held responsible for funds drawn on this check!
