Hopeful powerboat cruising family from SF Bay Area

Hello!

We are a family of 3 (which may be expanding soon) in the SF Bay Area looking to try out the cruising lifestyle on a powerboat.

We're currently looking into taking basic powerboating lessons at Club Nautique and chartering a boat for a week-long vacation this summer to see how we like it.

I am joining this forum in the hopes to meet similarly minded people and learn about lessons, certifications, clubs, powerboats, family cruising, etc.

I look forward to getting to know you all!

Re: Hopeful powerboat cruising family from SF Bay Area

Power boats give fantastic access to inland lakes and rivers that sailboats realistically can't offer. Good choice.
