Welcome to Missy Goes Boating

For the past 20 years,  I have been cruising the Pacific Northwest in my 34 foot Bayliner "As You Wish". I manage to get out most weekends from April to October with a couple of one week visits to the Gulf Islands or Desolation.  I love a good dock party or a side-tie in a remote anchorage and live for flavourful snacks, fun cocktails, a stack of magazines and a healthy dose of dock talk.

Missy & Jonathan

Hi! I'm Missy and this is my big red dog, Jonathan. I am a weekend warrior who loves to cruise the Pacific Northwest. I am a shopper and love cool products that actually work. My friends and I spend countless hours floating, sipping beverages and talking about what works and what doesn't. We didn't invent any of this stuff but we sure like to think we did.

Cool Products

Perfect for those hard to reach outlets. It can be controlled by your smart device or Alexa. I am waiting for the "pour wine" function.

It looks like a traditional marine light but it is plastic, rechargeable, has a dimmer switch and you can "blow" it out. Very smart.

For those hard to break apart snaps. The notched blade fits over the snap to align and break them apart without tearing the canvas.

These are amazing to keep on the dinghy or to take to happy hour. The spoon/fork/bottle opener comes with a washable cloth bag. Eliminate one-use cutlery!

I have this one on board and it is fantastic! The handle folds up and the cord retracts. Lightweight, ceramic and low noise, pretty good for 1875 watts!

I just purchased one, great for a magazine, glasses or the remote. Keeps the clutter off my bedside table!
