November Boating on Lake Travis

I just spent the weekend on Lake Travis in Austin, TX. The weather report said thunderstorms all weekend. But, I figured what do they know. I didn't feel a drop of rain all weekend. Low 80s daytime, low 60s night.

I'm going next weekend while I still can. I don't care what the weather man says. Anyone boating next weekend on Travis?

Unless there is a freeze, tornado or the boat problems I'll be there next weekend. If you want to go out on the boat for a while give me a call. The people I usually hang out with there are staying home so it's just me and the wife, Lisa. My boat is with Bob at Full Throttle Marina right now for a couple of minor issues. I plan on leaving San Antonio about 3:00 on Friday. I plan on launching it before it gets dark at Yacht Harbor (Aunt Tilly's). If I get held up and it gets dark on me I may wait and splash it Sat am.

I may have to take you up on that! Although, I think that launching before dark on Friday may be a bit ambitious due to the recent time change. But maybe not (since you are not towing from San Anotnio). I'll talk to you about it as it gets closer to the weekend as I am in L.A. right now. My flight is scheduled to land in Austin 2:00pm Friday but you know how air travel can go .

Default Leather Weather

I think I'm done for the year. For me, it's time to put up the boat and break out the Harley.

Highs in the 60's and lows in the 40's... We call that "Leather Weather".

Gone ridin'

Weather Forecast for Austin

I am hoping to still have a few nice weekends. The weather was great this last weekend despite what the weather reports said would happen.

Clay - Highs in 60s and lows in 40s? Is that what they're saying about next weekend? I haven't watched the weather yet. I can certainly boat in the 60s. But, if it's in the 40s we'll be sleeping in the house and not the boat.

Jason and Formula 78. My cell phone is 210-887-1766. I'd say the chances are about 90% that I'll be splashing the boat Friday night. Even if it is dark putting it in the water is easy. It's taking it out that's a b*tch. Give me a call Friday and let's get together.

Brent, was that you in the 20 year old 35?

I was the guy who asked you what year it was when you launched her. Sweet ride BTW!
