National Boat Day is an opportunity for Australians to
confront their fear of boats in a safe and caring atmosphere.
All around the country, let us gather in boats to re-acquaint
ourselves with a heritage we have come to fear.
Paddle-out into the ocean, onto a lake, or
simply beach your boat for a picnic in the park.
Inflatables, tinnies, dinghies, sail-boats, ocean-liners.
All are welcome on Boat Day.
Many of us will be beaching our boats on the steps of parliament,
paddling softly at the ground to ease boat-fear
from the hearts of our politicians and from the pages of policy.
Boat day may look a little silly. And it is. But it's not.
