Talking LOTO: Winterizing your boat for the cold days to come.

Uh......it may be time to start thinking about that LOTO people.

I know. It seems that summer just started, and the 90-120 days of boating you guys get seems to have just slipped away, but facts are facts. Winter is on the way. Surrender.

While our water temperature is warmer than your air temperature, we'll be keeping any eye on the oil temperature of the motors, and spreading the suntan oil on the local hard bodies in Havasu and the Pacific. Since you'll be filling the block with antifreeze for the coming cold, we'll be filling the ice chest with frozen ice blocks in an effort to keep the frosty beverages cold.

go ahead rub it in, it still feels like summer today though its 93deg. So what if the leaves are turning color untill the lake freezes over we can still boat. Or in Boatheads case he just drives around the icebergs

I got a jump start on things and winterized my boat today....Took me about 10 seconds to complete the job: Throw a long sleeve T Shirt in the cabin in case it gets cold on a run to the Yardhouse...

The one good thing about winter up here is that it gives us time to do the things to the boat that we want to do. You won't here us wining about the boat being broke down in January. We will be excited about the new motor that we just built and talking about the dyno # and dreaming about the next summer. Wishing for summer just makes the summer that much better when it gets here. I can't wait to start TINKERING.

No complaints here. I actually like Winter. Not much fun celebrating Christmas without snow.

You West coast guys can keep the Earthquakes, Smog, Overly crowded living, lack of land space and overly priced cost of living I will take the change of seasons and winterizing my boat any day.
