how many times? if no do you want to? how was your experience on the boat? what did yall do? well i went camping today and friday and saturday as well. it rained the whole time. so when it stopped and the sun was just coming out we all decided to go on the boat since we did rent it and have to turn it in at the end of the day. so i've only been on a boat about 2 times once when i was at summer camp and once this weekend. being on this boat was scaring because we were far out and then it started thunder storming and lighting. after this scary experience of the boat rocking like it was gonna flip over i'm not sure if i would really want to go on another boat again. its not my thing really i just like fishing.

Well, I was able to board different kinds of boat. In our country there are different places to go to considering that our country has around 7,100 islands. Obviously boat is one of the cheap way to travel. I have also boarded small boats on fishing trips and island hopping activities for fun. Just a few days ago, I and my wife as well as my friend boarded a small pumpboat four our diving training. Its really fun. The important thing of course is to insure safety.

I've been on a boat many times, and I am never used to it. I always get queasy, and the whole time I'm on, I'm usually just trying to get a hold of myself and try not to throw up (that would be horribly embarrassing LOL). I've also been on a boat when it stormed and it was really horrible. I was afraid the boat would turn over, but I was more afraid of throwing up around everyone LOL! All I did was just try to focus on the movie that was playing on the boat's TV. I took a pill so I wouldn't get queasy an hour before, but the way the boat was rocking, the pill didn't really help. I was just hoping we could get to shore ASAP, although of course the ride took longer due to the storm. By the time we got back on land, I was still reeling. I didn't get on a boat for a long time after that.

Yea, One time i went fishing with my dad at a large lake, we rented a small john boat. When we got out about to the center of the lake the boat began to leak. So my dad paddled back in as i used a cup to take water out of the boat. We got are money back and left the lake.
