We left the dock with beers 1/2+ full after shoveling out the cockpit; got her going and crunched the 1.5 mi. to the water(crunchy)front bar where the docks were out; so we reved-up and beached it. Tried the beers...but they were SOLID. Then drank at the bar for too long. (one min. would have been too long) I'll never leave my boat in that late again. It still lives, but it was an extensive restoration. Been there-done that-wish I hadn't. --- Jer

40 deg.... windchill at 90mph.... my tears froze to my face, one of the best experiences on a boat ever.

I once went skim boarding in mid december, air was about 65, water had chunks of ice, i didnt have feeling in my toes for a week or so!

Thrillseeker and I are going to take his seadoo out when the water thaws

When I water tested my Pantera, it was in the 40's. It was a short test.
