Today's morning session started with "Selecting A Home Base" ....
which includes a discussion of how selecting a home base (or RV domicile state) may affect insurance rates and coverages.
After that, we presented "RV Insurance & Extended Warranties" followed by "How Much Does It Cost To Full-time?"
After lunch, we finished up the day with "Working On The Road", a very popular topic.
After the seminars, Linda & I brought in two of our three Sea Eagle inflatable boats to demonstrate for those interested. Quite a few folks were interested. :)
We laid out our entry level Sea Eagle SE-370 ....
and our Sea Eagle FastTrack 385 side-by-side.
We, or I should say Linda, inflated the SE-370 first.
I believe someone timed her at about six and a half minutes.
I put the four-piece paddles together, and we hopped in.
The SE-370 is a less expensive boat that has more "drag" in the water and requires a bit more steering to keep it on track as it has two short permanent skegs (rudders). However, it is very durable, very comfortable, and very maneuverable as I can turn it on a dime.
The SE-370 is a great value and our friends Tim & Crystal with InflatableBoats4Less.com are offering a package with the SE-370, two paddles, two seats, foot pump, carry bag, and repair kit for under $300 (limited time offer).
Linda then inflated the FastTrack - I think it took about six minutes. We left off the removable skeg (rudder), and then got in.
The FastTrack has a lower profile, is built with even a more durable material, has an inflatable keel and a long, removable skeg. The keel and skeg make it track straighter with less steering needed, and it has less drag in the water.
InflatableBoats4Less.com is now offering the FastTrack package (boat, two paddles, two seats, foot pump, carry bag, repair kit, and shipping) for $969 (limited time offer).
InflatableBoats4Less.com is Sea Eagle's largest dealer. Tim & Crystal are RVers and they offer really great pricing and are wonderful at helping our RVing friends select the boat that is right for them.
We deflated the boats and packed them up so everyone could see the breakdown and packing procedure.
Dinner tonight was a potluck. Linda's potluck coordinators showed everyone where to put their dishes, and we had our usual awesome selections.
After we wiped out the potluck dishes, we had some fun with our take on the "Newlywed Game" called "Road Tested".
Linda developed RVing-related questions for three groups of contestants: Experienced, Newbies, & Wannabes. And I was the host.
We had a lot of laughs, and I always enjoy having fun with the couples that volunteer to participate.
It's always nice to see a lot of smiles as folks leave the Conference Center for the evening. :)
Tomorrow, we'll have "Basic Maintenance" and RV Driving School will have their popular "For The Ladies" seminar. Then we are going to do a fifth wheel hitching and unhitching demonstration at our site. And we are going to have a group campfire at our rig later in the evening for anyone that is interested.
Well, that's Day 4 in the books. So far, so good. :)
