Mid 20's in the cruiser.

Rode a jetski 11 miles in 38 degrees 8 years back. Stayed close to shore so they could at least fish my body in with a boathook.

About 33 degrees.

When OSO member Macklin got his new Baja in 2000, we went on a sea trial in one of the coldest days in Feb. Plus the bay was ROUGH with all the wind blowin!!!

It was quite fun, and I don't think either of us was too cold due to the "new boat" excitement.

Thisrty Turtle, caincando myself and about 5 other boats were all going out on an all day run on the first Friday in May, put the boats in on Thursday, woke up friday morning to about an 1/8 inch of frost on the the boats. Took a little while for the motors to warm up that day.

Other wise Thirsty Turtle and I have went boating in Feb. Started out canoeing and ended up swimming in the Mississippi River.
