ALEXANDRIA, Va., April 26, 2018 – With springtime’s arrival, more boaters are getting help with a variety of how-to and other boating topics by watching BoatUS videos at YouTube.com/BoatUS. The national advocacy, services and safety group announced today it has reached a milestone with 10,000 YouTube channel subscribers. The most popular video, “How to Trim Your Boat,” has nearly 600,000 views and makes this critical boat-handling skill easy to understand.
Most of the 100-plus videos on the channel were produced by the editors of BoatUS Magazine and cover a range of practical topics, all designed to make a boater’s life better. “We’ve been releasing new videos weekly since last fall,” said BoatUS Magazine Managing Editor Stacey Nedrow-Wigmore. “Topics include how-to, maintenance, boat handling, buyers guides, fishing, and more. They’re professionally shot and edited, and we keep them short so they’re easy to watch anytime. Each one offers something useful, whether you’re new to boating or have been on the water for years.”
Some of the more popular topics just in time for the start of the boating season include, “How to Repair Gelcoat,” “5 Outboard Maintenance Jobs People Forget,” “Beaching Your Boat So You Can Leave Again,” “How To Navigate Using a Smartphone,” and “How To Back Into a Slip.”
