Got a Gas Guzzler Boat? Need to get out of boating? Don’t Do this to it!
~ Donate it to Charity! ~
I just celebrated my 34th wedding anniversary recently. Two weeks after we got married, my husband and I purchased our first boat, a 25-foot wooden Chris Craft. As we live in Connecticut, Long Island Sound was our usual stomping ground.

Over the years, we bought several more boats, kids came along, and our travels took us and our friends from the marina to wonderful places such as Greenport, Montauk & Sag Harbor, New York, Shinnecock Canal, Block Island and Newport, Rhode Island, among other places.

Generally speaking, our boat got about 11 miles to the gallon. You could see how easily the dollars added up going on even a short excursion, much less a longer one!

Times have changed. Some of our friends are long gone, and others aren’t able to make the long trips any more and are trying to sell their boats. Gas prices because of the economy are out of sight. I have given serious thought to donate my boat to charity.

The old saying goes ~ A boat is a hole in the water in which to throw money. If you’re looking to get out of the boating scene and are unable to sell your gas guzzler, there are many organizations to which you can donate boats.

A wonderful organization, boatangel.org and their parent, use boat donations to create children’s animations and anti-drug documentaries. Boat Angel has outreach centers all over the world. A few of their worthwhile contributions made available through boat donations are helping teen boys in rehabilitation homes as well as uplifting books into prisons. Be an angel, donate your boat.
