I've been a member of the BOC for only two weeks now, and in all honesty, I can't believe all the fun and benefits I have received. I am a current or past member of several sporting/conservations groups, and I have to say that the BOC tops them all. In the past two weeks, I have already: Found a new fishing spot in my area Got some excellent advice on buying a new boat Met some very nice people and had some very interesting conversations with them. Some of these conversations got quite "spirited", but in the end, everyone remained respectful to each other. I am really glad I found this site and became a member. Looking forward to many years of membership.
