Picture This…

On the way into the village of Creeslough in North West Donegal, there’s an uphill stretch of road.

On the left hand side there is a beautiful little fishing lake nestled down into the valley between two hills. The water on the lake is almost always like a mirror (or at least it is in my head). Beyond the lake, Muckish mountain towers in the distance, its distinctive outline reflected in the water below.

Around the next corner the whole view opens up into an expansive vista over the inner reaches of Sheephaven bay and some of the most pristine beaches you can imagine. The whole scene is picture perfect.

That’s the spot for me.

That’s the bit of the road, on route to our holiday place in Dunfanaghy, where my work brain switches off, the worries and stresses get left behind and it feels like I’ve escaped for the weekend…

It never fails.

Every time we head down that road, I get that wonderful feeling of getting away from it all. And more often than not there’s a boat like this Glastron MX185 hooked on behind the jeep.

I think that for a lot of us this is what boating is all about…

It’s escapism from the tyranny of the day to day. It’s getting away with your family and loved ones for great fun to be enjoyed together. It’s about getting out into the world and enjoying the stunning beauty that Mother Nature has to offer.

And the other great thing is that it’s pretty much ‘instant’ release…

It’s not like going away on a ‘proper’ holiday with the big buildup, late evenings in the office trying to clear your desk beforehand, fighting your way through airports and car rental queues, followed by two or three days of slow decompression while you gradually get into the rhythm of your holiday.

There’s something a whole lot more relaxing about just jumping in the car with your family on a Friday evening and heading down the road to the boat or your weekend spot. And if you think about it, whether it’s passing a landmark on the road or stepping onto your boat, there’s probably a moment for you where you finally hit the off button and start to relax and enjoy the weekend.

No big deal, no big build up, no fuss, just straightforward weekend fun that lets you get back into things re-energised next week.

That’s what I think boating is all about.

To get the maximum amount of fun and enjoyment from your boat, and your precious weekends afloat, then you need a good boat. One that starts every time you turn the key and allows you to focus on having a good time. This immaculate Glastron MX 185 is one such boat. She’s powered by a Mercruiser 4.3L 190HP V6 sterndrive, comes complete with great covers, a great trailer and a 3 month warranty to start at the beginning of next season. I think that she’d make an excellent weekend toy for the whole family to enjoy.
