Not as entertaining as seeing him in person but tons of good information.

BLUE WATER YACHTS NEW WEBSITE

www.bwyachts.com

You can now find all the parts and accessories they offer and purchase them online. I have been frustrated for years with the old website but when I checked out the new one, I realized a new problem. It is going to cost me money. I found so many things I “need” for my boat. Check it out … but be careful, you are going to want to spend a lot of money.
