After making the decision to become a powerboater, I figured I should do some research to find out some stuff about my new sport. What exactly is a powerboat? Is it the same as a motorboat? How do you drive one? What sort of powerboat should I buy? Basic stuff like that.
Well, if powerboating is is anything like sailing, all the best information and advice will be on blogs, right? That's where the action is. So I did a Google search on "best powerboat blog on the planet".
Hmmm. That's a little disappointing.
Article on 420magazine.com about the fastest hemp boat on the planet. I stole the picture above from this story, but 420magazine.com has... ummm... a different emphasis... not at all about powerboats really.
Post on greenboatblog.com about Sailboat or Powerboat? Hmmm. I don't think I'm going to find much practical advice about how to drive fast in a boat with twin 500hp engines on a site called greenboatblog.
Story from the UK Daily Mail about a man dying in a powerboat crash... and his parents saw it happen. Yikes! That's not the kind of stuff I need to read when I'm all enthusiastic about my new sport.
So where are all the powerboat bloggers? What is the best powerboat blog on the planet?
