I don't know about you guys but I am usually out in early to mid March and I don't winterize until mid November. It is a little cooler at those times but i'm still boating, plus you don't go through as much ice
The wife likes the time off so I can do things around the house. Last year new family room, this year a new kitchen it gives me four months to get it done .
Plus we have friends that live in AZ and we will be out there in Jan or Feb.
