World of Boating 4-3-21
This week the crew begin their 17th year on-the-air with the World of Boating radio show. What in boating has changed in 17 years and what does the future hold?
Here in the Northeast where the boating season runs from May 1st to Oct. 31st, I listen to these Barnacle bums to help me get through the winter. They are somewhat informative and at the very least, amusing.
Too Much Useless Gab
4 or 5 guys depending on the show with less then 10 minutes of combined useful boating information. Unfortunate as this really could be something if there was a bit more focus on actually talking about boating issues. Hopefully they review the feedback and can adjust.
Is “unlistenable” a word?
Wow. I’ve long since given up on regularly listening to this show, but I’ll occasionally listen to an episode (mostly during the winter, in an effort to scratch my boating “itch”). It never fails to disappoint.
For example, I had to stop listening to the most recent episode (11/14/2020) 26 minutes in, because they hadn’t uttered one worthwhile thing about boats yet. Not once. It was almost completely filled with commercials, schtick, and inside jokes. It’s not worth the effort to download. It’s CERTAINLY a waste of time if you want a boating podcast. Look elsewhere.
Do. Not. Waste. Your. Time.
