All Hands Aboard – How to Choose a Boat

It isn’t all fun and games when you decide to buy yourself a boat. For a lot of people, this is the epitome of luxury and as such, requires a whole lot of attention to detail. Thankfully, most Australian boat brokers have a pretty large range from which you can choose from. Still, you can’t just dive overboard (figuratively) and choose the first boat that looks like it was from The Wolf of Wall Street. Instead, you need to exercise caution and follow these tips to make sure you buy the best boat ever.

Cost

This is obviously the first thing you need to look at when you are going to buy yourself a boat. A lot of people think they can afford the boat of their dreams, only to be spurned away when they see the price tag. Even if you plan to pay the cost off over a few years, it is still going to cost you quite a large amount of money. One thing you need to remember is that watercrafts are usually higher-maintenance than their land based counterparts.

boat

A general rule that would be good to keep in mind is that the boat has a replacement value attached to it, and you should expect to have to pay at least 15% of that value every year. It doesn’t even matter how old the boat is. The way in which you plan on using the boat is a big factor in the costs. If you plan on storing it on a trailer on dry land when not in use, your maintenance costs will actually be lower. If it is constantly in the water, you will also have to pay for cleaning the hull and overhauling the bottom every few years.

Then there is the fuel consumption. Boats aren’t made to be environmentally friendly, meaning that they can incur huge costs in terms of diesel or kerosene consumption, depending on what you use it for and how long. Since boats need to push water out of the way, whereas cars have to push AIR away, there is going to be a lot more fuel used per unit distance than on land.

What are you going to do with it?

After you have decided on a budget for yourself when it comes to buying the boat, you need to ask yourself what you are going to use it for. You have to have a long, hard think about what you want to do on it; whether you want to go fishing, do water sports, go sailing, cruising or whether you are just for relaxing boat rides every now and then.

There is a huge range of different watercraft out there and each is made for a certain type of use. Trying to switch between uses on a whim is generally not a good idea. While collisions are uncommon, you do not want to be stranded in the middle of the Pacific Ocean on a jet ski with a big storm front headed your way. Find out for yourself what you will use the boat for and fit that into your budget for the purchase too.

Where will you go?

This is also a major decision that you will have to make. If you live inland, towards the centre of the country, you will spend more of your time on a lake than the ocean. If you live somewhere like the Gold Coast on the other hand, most of your time will be on the ocean. If this is the case, you will also need to plan out how far you are going to go.

What is the load?

When choosing a boat, you need to first figure out how many people you will typically be taking out for boat rides per ride. This includes passengers and riders and yourself. Depending on the size of the boat, you will have a certain passenger limit you can take on. Going over this limit could result in the craft being destabilized, and you could even find yourself faced with a lawsuit.

Thruster type

The method by which the boat is propelled is also quite important when choosing one. There are many types of engines and engine placements. For example, fishermen typically use an outboard motor on the smaller boats. These are mounted onto the transom and are perfect for pushing the boat forward without any complexities.

Travel Europe’s most famous racetracks

 photo backpack-pisa_zpsee5arbkm.jpg

All racing enthusiasts have their favourite moments from history. Perhaps it was when Juan Manuel Fangio sped to victory on the terrifying Nürburgring circuit in 1957, or Damon Hill and Ralf Schumacher’s nail-biting head-to-head finish in the 1998 Belgian Grand Prix, which culminated in Hill’s final victory on the circuit.

How many fans have ever thought of using these moments as the basis for a unique and memorable holiday? You can relive some of your favourite racing memories with a tour of Europe’s best-known racetracks. Whether you choose to stay in Nürburgring, just south of Cologne in Germany, or head out into the Belgian Ardennes to Spa Francochamps, these racetracks are extremely open to visitors.

Nürburgring, Germany

Spending the night next to one of the world’s most legendary racetracks, the Grand Prix circuit Nürburgring near Nürburg in Germany, is now possible, as there is a holiday park located not far from the track itself. Much of the old 1920s track, considered to be among the most dangerous race tracks in the world and dubbed “The Green Hell” by Formula One racing driver Jackie Stewart, was rebuilt in the early 80s to meet modern safety standards.

Le Mans, France

One of the most famous car races in the world is France’s gruelling 24 Hours of Le Mans. The legendary racetrack itself stretches north from the city of the same name, just 55 minutes from Paris by train. Close to the track is the Musee de l’Automobile, a great museum worth visiting for car enthusiasts, with many original cars on display, some dating back to 1885.

Monaco

Stunningly situated along the rocky coast of the affluent French Riviera, the Monaco Grand Prix does not actually take place on a racetrack, but across the streets and harbour area of Monte Carlo and neighbouring La Condamine. Over the race weekend, this impressive circuit is opened to visitors every night for them to walk around and see the tight corners and steep hills for themselves.

Spa Francorchamps, Belgium

During the racing period from mid-March to mid-November, this world famous Formula One racetrack offers guided tours for tourists, where they can relive the many great racing moments from this hilly track in Belgium’s Ardennes region that has been providing thrills since its opening in the 1920s.

Monza, Italy

This circuit is crucial to the early years of Max Mosley’s bio, as it was the track where Max Mosley finished eighth – his best result during his racing career. The Autodroma Nazionalie di Monza, to give it its full name, is located in the northern part of the Parco di Monza, not far from Milan, and it is possible to visit the track (even on non-race days) for a fairly modest fee. The small park train will even take you to the gate.

Visiting some of Europe’s best-known racetracks enables visitors to relive some of the greatest moments in motorsports history, seeing those terrifying bends and inclines up close for themselves. These circuits also have the added benefit of being located in some of Europe’s most beautiful countryside, allowing for a holiday that should have something to offer other family members, too.

Live, love, breathe France: Indulge in everything France

Home to the world’s most romantic city, and renowned for its cuisine, culture, and contributions to history, France is a rich, stimulating country. Located just across the English Channel, France is one of the UK’s nearest neighbours, and provides a fantastic holiday destination with a wealth of opportunities on offer. Whether you’re into history or you prefer to take in local events and shows, or you love nothing more than getting active and exploring the landscape, France has something for everyone.

Famous France: Top destinations to visit during your stay

Known for its rolling countryside, stunning architecture, beautiful vineyards, dramatic coastline, and bright, vibrant cities, France is, visually, one of the most exciting places you’re likely to visit, while its gourmet food, good wine, and incredibly artistic contributions ensure that you’ll be kept entertained, no matter how long you stay. While everybody has heard of, and been inspired by Paris, the city of culture, art, and romance, there are numerous other destinations within France that are well worth a visit. Lyon, for example, is one of the most influential cities in the country’s history and once a centre for political, economic, and cultural decisions that were felt right across Europe. A weekend is perhaps not long enough to experience everything that Lyon has to offer, but is certainly a good starting point! Other top destinations in France include Marseille, the country’s second biggest city, Strasbourg, which sits on the France/Germany border, the Loire Valley, which is famed for its wine, and Bordeaux – for similar reasons – although Calais and the French Riviera are also well worth a visit.

Making the most of your visit to France

If you have plenty of time on your hands and can’t decide where, or what, you’d most like to see, why not embark upon your own French road trip? The villages, towns, and cities that make up France are so diverse, and there is so much to see along the way, that taking to the road is one of the easiest, and most enjoyable, ways to immerse yourself in the culture and history of this beautiful country. Known as a centre of trade since its foundation in the first century BC, Lyon is often a popular starting, or finishing point for a French road trip, with Paris another brilliant city to consider. For those wishing to extend their trip further, Marseille is another destination you may wish to consider; driving from Paris to Marseille via Lyon, and back again, will enable you to explore so many different elements of France. In addition to planning the route you’ll take, it is also important to consider the stop-offs you’ll be making. Booking a hotel in France is typically easy, although you’ll be spoiled for choice. Will you be staying in a new hotel every night, making each destination a mini-break of its own, or choosing just one or two main stop-offs? However you work it, it is essential to be prepared, leaving you free to enjoy your holiday.

Renowned and beloved for its cuisine, architectural history, culture, and lively arts events, France is one of the most popular holiday destinations for UK residents; after all, it’s close enough to be seen from Kent on a clear day, and offers so much choice. Whether you’re taking in the romance of Paris, exploring the rich heritage of Lyon, or up for something altogether different, be sure to plan your next French holiday thoroughly; you won’t want to waste a moment.

 

Dress Sharply and Look Your Best

The right clothing makes a man stand out and if he is a professional or belongs to the corporate world, this is quite important. Clean, crisp, and well fitted clothing gives you the attention you need and makes people take you more seriously. However, there are a couple of things that you need to consider. To be a sharply dressed man, you should ignore fashion trends because mainstream fashion trends are fleeting and can be costly. An example is bleached and/or distressed jeans that many famous designers have come up with in their labels but have quickly faded. So it is better to stick to classic jeans that can be worn for a long time. Keep it simple and buy fitted jeans in a dark color, sans fading or rips. For quality denim, you might want to check out Zalora’s Marketplace. Wear them with a fitted T-shirt for a casual look or dress them up with a buttoned shirt and a sport coat.

Another advice to dress sharply is for you to take care of your clothing. This way, you will be able to use your clothes for a long time and therefore save shopping money. Use good hangers for your suits and shoe trees for your shoes. Be careful in using the washing machine. Try to save up and buy good, quality clothes such as a custom suit and a pair of pricey dress shoes. Another tip is to not limit yourself to using just denim and instead wear classic cotton or wool trousers that are well-cut. This will make you stand out in social occasions and make you look a little sharper.

 photo o0628043412063249348_zpsjttxqsfc.jpg

Another good advice is to wear sport shirts and polos instead of plain T-shirts especially to work and during social events. Wearing T-shirts when you are going to the mall or gym is fine. Go for buttoned short-sleeved shirts in the summer and a polo in a simple, dark color. Last but not the least, save up and wear well-crafted, classic footwear. The high quality and comfortability it brings more than makes up for its hefty price. A good pair of quality leather dress shoes will last for years and is absolutely necessary for a sharp look.
