RaveWaves refurbishes marine and terrene cruisers with comprehensive interior and exterior detailing. Doting maritime travelers can entrust treasured schooners to RaveWaves' detail technicians, who restore be-barnacled exteriors to a showroom gleam. Collinite 885 Fleetwax seals in clean surfaces and stands up to 90 days of elemental attacks from sun, wind, rain, and absent-minded gulls. A hand dry with microfiber towels and chamois eliminates the telltale signs that your boat has been around water. The technicians who sunburn easily go to work on interiors with a thorough vacuum, and a wipe down clears the cockpit and windows of the brightly colored evidence from your last wild Mary Kay party. Captains must drop off sea steeds for two to three days to ensure ample time for detail orientation.

The horseback lesson takes place at Sunflower Farms, which boasts 170 acres of pristine wooded lakefront farmland, ideal for galloping horses and running a mildly successful Internet business. Start the two-hour session with an hour-long ground lesson that helps riders get to know their horses, covers the basics of riding equipment, and teaches horse-grooming methods. Once riders feel comfortable enough around a horse to not be overwhelmed with the desire to challenge it to a staring contest, they'll saddle up and ride for a full hour, outfitted with a certified helmet from Saddlers Row. Sunflower Farms instructors will work with riders of any skill level, from beginner to competition level.
