CAROLINA BEACH, NC (WECT) – After a brief cool spell, warm weather has returned to the area -- and that means boat ramps are expected to be busy this weekend, with families heading out for a day on the water.
If you are in the market to become a boat owner, there are several important considerations in choosing a vessel.
"It's a pretty big decision and I would strongly recommend to buy locally to get some dealer support," said Joel Romig, a local boat dealer. "It helps to make the whole boating experience a lot more pleasurable."
Because you want it to be a fun experience for you and your family, purchase a boat large enough to meet your needs, not just what you can afford. By knowing the primary use of the boat, you can narrow down the size of boat you will be happy with.
