When warmer temps arrive it seems as though everything requires spring maintinance. If I bring the boat out before everything is done, I'll stay on the lake and nothing will be accomplished.
A lot of people on our side of Michigan also live in Chicago, so they don't come out till Memorial Day. Can't blame them though, boating isn't as fun when the water temp is 40.
Personally I feel secure when the boat is in storage, less likely that anything will get stolen. One everyone starts overnighting it's less likely something will get taken, everyone watches out for each other.
Although the boat is an expense, a 25' Checkmate is affordable. So I don't worry so much. Come Sept-Oct I'll still be out there though, might start the season late but once I'm on the lake nothing brings be back. Unless the house burns down.
