We are so fortunate to be able to perform our jobs while remaining safe and socially distant. Over the weekend, Governor Cuomo made marinas essential businesses, allowing our hard working technicians to get to work prepping and launching boats for this year's boating season. Though it snowed in Lake George over the weekend, we know everyone is still anxious to get out of the house and on the water.
Boating has long been thought of as a great way to enjoy nature, spend quality time together with loved ones, and disconnect from our busy lives to get away from it all. Now, more than ever, those qualities of boating are the reason it is positioned to be the perfect social distancing activity in our Covid-19 world.
We, like many, have been homebound for a month plus. All social engagements and activities for our kids have been cancelled. Cabin fever is real. And now, with warm weather approaching, along comes boating! We know that boating is going to look different – for example we won’t be inviting anyone outside our immediate family on board any time soon – but it remains the number one thing we are looking forward to doing over the next several months. And, we are happy that marinas have been considered essential so that we can work to provide the same relief to others!
Marina procedures will look a little different this year no doubt (no congregating in groups, staff restrictions on customer interactions), but we will still do our best to provide you with the same level of service while keeping everyone safe and healthy.
