Default Florida Boating In Summer

im originally from upstate NY, (lake george), then i moved to lake norman NC, now i am in Jacksonville FL and ive had the new boat out 3-4 times now, Jax poker run, then last weekend, and this afternoon i made a quick trip over to whiteys... My question is how in the world do you handle the heat down here in the summer time! holy fuc its hot, i cant hardly un cover the boat without swamp azz and sweat dripping all over me........

how do i adjust or what do you do to boat all summer in this heat!

I lived in Hilton Head some years ago, it was really hot and humid as well and I recall feeling the same way as you when I first arrived. I was told my blood would thin a bit, and it would not be so bad. I remember towards middle of summer it seemed as if I did not get so hot. Not sure if that was the reason though. Hang in there...your living in FL !!!!

no, i wish, my house was 2.5 miles from the lake, there was a nice high and dry marina and restaurant right there, the rusty rudder, and there was also a decent boat ramp within that range
