They say the best days for a boat owner are the day you first buy a boat and the day you sell it. Well, that may be true for some, but not for all. There are still plenty of us who enjoy a great weekend on the lake or the river. If you’re lucky enough to live in Arizona — probably the driest state aside from Nevada — then you know there are boats everywhere. Kinda weird, right? It’s the damn desert! They even say that there are more boats per capita than any other U.S. state. Is this based on fact, or is it fiction? While I’ve never found any solid information to back up this claim, I still feel like it’s 100% true. Let’s point out some details that get us closer to that number.
There are more types of boats than just the typical powerboat you see on the big lakes or big rivers. Oh, now you get it. Yep, all watercraft must be registered in the state of Arizona, so that includes powerboats, rowboats, bass boats, fishing boats, jet boats, U-boats, flat boats, ferryboats, gunboats, houseboats, workboats, paddle boats, and that’s about all there is for the types of boats… (without trying to sound too much like Bubba telling Forest about all the types of shrimp available to eat). Heck, down in Lake Havasu they even have a Pirates Boat, and if you have ever been there, then you already know. So, I feel it is possible that Arizona may have the most boats per capita.
Don’t let the first day be the best day as a boat owner. Make every day the best. I really feel that if more boat owners had a great looking boat, then they would take it out and show it off more often. But, do you know how expensive it is to paint a boat? Yes, yes, I do, and that’s why wrapping a boat is so attractive as it is a fraction of the cost of a boat paint job. Oh, by the way, we are talking about powerboats and not canoes or the kayaks. Just paint that old canoe with a rattle can or something to get the camo look you want and be done with it.
Check out this neglected boat that came into our shop to get wrapped. Neglected, you say? It’s a heck of a lot nicer than mine. Well, if that’s the case, don’t run over here — hook that boat and up drive here! You are in some serious need of coolness added to your watercraft, my friend. Don’t let the new shiny trailer and new canvas tops on this boat fool you. It looked pretty rough before our awesome team cleaned it up. I believe that this boat was in here 3 or 4 days from start to finish for us to install the wrap. The custom wrap design was created by one of our in-house designers prior to the boat getting here, and I think it turned out pretty dang cool. Of course, this look is not for everyone, but whatever look you want to fit your personality, we can make that happen. Check out our boat page for more boat wrap ideas.
