I'll winterize my parents boat (I use it for a 17' weed wacker around my dock) soon. I'll be boating for another month and a half. Thats why Sonic sells leather jackets!!! And theres plenty of tinkering planned during the winter lay up.

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.

Just picked up my new RX-1 snowmobile yesterday ! To bad you west coast & southern boys won't be able to experience blasting across the lakes at 120 mph on one of these ! It's quite a thrill ! And when spring rolls around we pull the boat back out and you get that same feeling all over again that you had when you put your boat in the water for the very first time. We got toys for all seasons up here.

"It seems that summer just started, and the 90-120 days of boating you guys get seems to have just slipped away"

Maybe for those fair weather types! I was only winterized for three months last year. Dec-Mar

You "fair weather" guys have no idea what snow is. To us, it's just another medium to conquer!

.......Oh yeah, and to beat our brains out on. Now doesn't this look like fun to you??

When winter comes I let the big twins take a much needed nap and break out the little twins.
