Exciting ideas to celebrate on a boat
Plan a BBQ onboard
Time to eat! Bring out the food and get your grill ready to fire up. Dropping your anchor to enjoy your meal is the memorable experience you will make as you can’t have it every day. Share it with your friends and families on board. Plan your menu with red, white, and blue foods as much as you can and grill out on deck using your galley if you have one.
And guess, what’s the best part? You don’t have to stress about bringing napkins; just make the messy eaters jump out for a swim!
If you are enjoying alcoholic drinks on board, remember to have a sober driver. Intoxicated driving will lead to boating accidents. And there is a risk of something going wrong when boating locations and waterways are busier.
Make a patriotic song playlist
Even the youngest fan of music in your family will relate to this. Make a playlist with American and freedom-themed songs. Or just a list of all songs that make you feel all American (American pie, Sweet Home Alabama), or you could get the songs that feature red, white, or blue color. And Get lost into breezy winds on your favorite pontoon boat with these spirited patriotic songs.
Get the decoration done & join a boat parade!
Enjoy into the spirit by decorating your Starcraft boat or Yamaha boat for the occasion. Make sure you use biodegradable and eco-friendly decoration. Don’t pollute the water system.
Display the red, white, and blue onboard to get festive. If you have a deck, add cushion in any of these colors, accessories, towels in other tones can complete the look. Fly some flags and wrap streamers around blocks, fishing rods, and more.
Communities host patriotic theme boat parades, and your decorating skills may earn you a judges award. And it can be adored by everyone on the shoreline.
Hit to the lake
It’s a day off, hot outside. Put on your swimming suits and head over to your favorite lake! Let everyone swim, play beach games, fishing, or host your BBQ there. Build up a big bonfire and go wild roasting marshmallows for s’mores! Do you own a fishing boat? Now, it’s the perfect time to get out in a freshwater family fishing boat and take it out for fishing, skiing, tubing.
Finish it off by anchoring in the middle of the lake and get the best view of the fireworks over the water! So relieving. Cherishing.
