Informative, educational and a great read
About 4 weeks ago I said to my wife & family that I wanted to buy a boat. Then a few days later I was given your book 'Honey, let's buy a BOAT! as a gift. Perfect timing!
I found this book very informative, educational & a great read. I am now much more knowledgeable about every aspect of buying, operating & owning a boat. Darren also personally gave me very helpful advice when it came to looking at used boats vs new boats. I can certainly recommend this book to anyone considering buying a boat.

Read the book, purchased the BOAT!
Over the years I have owned several racing yachts, but recently decided it was time to
have a break from competitive sailing. There was no way I could stay away from the water altogether, and it was not long before I crossed paths with Darren in my search for a modest powerboat. I immediately read his book "Honey, let's buy a BOAT!" - a fascinating and honest incite into the joys (and potential pitfalls) of boat ownership! His book helped me to determine what my priorities were... Something the whole family would enjoy and be able to easily manage, big enough to entertain friends, enough power to quickly outrun the dirtiest of weather!!
Ironically, the boat of choice, a Caribbean 32 Flybridge Cruiser, lay in waiting for me at St Kilda marina! Following Darren's own advice, the necessary hull and mechanical checks were completed and a deal struck!
Suffice to say my whole family are now enjoying our boating more than ever... I can't recommend highly enough the value of reading Darren's book and in my case the ease in which he facilitated the purchase of our new boat! Thank-you Darren!

I’ll just open a page to follow your advice
Great read for the entire family. Your book; Honey, let's go BOATING! is as much about tourism as it is about boating. I didn’t know there is such a large choice of great destinations to go boating in Victoria. No longer will we be concerned about where to go with the family, I’ll just open a page to follow your advice. Darren really is “The Boat Guy”.

A must read for new and experienced boaties alike.
I have never met anyone with such a passion for power boats as Darren. He is a straight shooter with a total commitment to getting people on the water and enjoying the great Australian boating lifestyle. This book is a must read for new and experienced boaties alike.
