WTH! I always seem to wait until a cold 50* day to winterize. Pulled the trigger yesterday. Much nicer!!
Anyone else feel the pain yet?

As painful as it may seem to do it in good weather, putting them to bed warm and dry makes spring clean up a breeze... also cuts down on things missed due to panic - like a local marina seemed to forget draining and refilling with antifreeze before the snow flew.

I was out last weekend in 50* weather, had a hard time getting the boat to warm up. I don't winterize until they pull the docks at the launch, I also have a heated garage I keep my boat in. Always hated putting my toys away.

Not sure what you are saying. 50*F is tshirt weather around here. When we get lots of work done outside,

2 weekends ago we hit 28*F. Wore a sweatshirt a few hrs that morning.

Todays forecast for the week. Cold is fine. Cold rain sucks.
