Talking December 2nd, last day boatinf on Lake Michigan

Just thought i would share this with the family. This is new record for me, beating November 13th. I actually made it out to Lake Michigan with my 185 Powerplay on December 2nd this year, one day before the snow. What a blast. Long 2'-3' rollers with a little chop on them, perfect for haulin' a$$. Wish i had some pictures on the Lake, but I was kinda busy holding the steering wheel!

A few years ago we were waiting for 1 more good day, it never came. The day I went to the marina to take her out it started to snow hard my buddy said I was nuts, but we still went for a quick ride in the snow. I don't hold out that long any more. LOL!

Good stuff. I fried a starter last time out which meant early retirement this year but I've never made it into December.

LOL. I was enjoying it so much, I never even noticed the cold. I surprised a few fisherman on the pier!
