Last year we were in the Potomac River in mid March. Last weekend was tempting but a few degrees short at 60. We all know how cold 60 degrees is at 50mph. Then there's the cold 25 degree nights, which would mean antifreeze and..........

Anyone else counting days?

I put in LOTO at around March 15-19. Didn't see another go-fast on the water though. Stilll saw some cruisers to hop around off of. Was WAY too cold for longer rides, but I couldn't help myself. The temp. didn't drop low enough after that though!

I'd do it lotoparty if it's in the 70's

Last March, after I was done that week, my marina was nice enough to keep an eye on temps w/ more than one day below freezing they would put my boat inside their heated shop. They never needed to, but it sure was comforting.

Are you going to LOTO? I may spend sometime down there this spring break. If so tell me what days and I could meet you somewhere to see that nice new water whip of yours

Tried to go last Saturday, got to the lake, ICE. Didn't expect that, went last year around the same time, no problems.
