    This is a great part of boating season. No crowds. We stayed in, got her recommissioned three weeks ago, and have put 10 hours on the thundering cathedrals of torque.
    On the way to a 150 hour season, I hope.

    regards

    We may have jumped the gun a week too early. Forecast for the rest of this week is highs in the 40's, lows in the 20's. Water temp last weekend was 53 so hopefully we will be OK. :smt017 :huh:

    I am just down stream in the Quad Cities. We put our boat in last Saturday. Now this morning I headed to the boat in 23 degree air to re-winterize part of the water system. The transom shower and the anchor wash down were my fears. I disconnected the water line from the tank and pumped two gallons of pink stuff through these faucets. I know I shouldn't but I put a trouble light with a rough service bulb in the engine compartment. I had no idea the water was over 40 degrees let alone over 50!

    We will hit 25 tonight. I went to the marina, turned on the heat, and let the pressure out of my fresh water lines. She will be just fine. C'mon, Spring. Don't tease us like this.

    I called my marina this morning (I'm 2.5 hours away) to get their opinion on this weather. Much to my delight they had already put a heater in my engine compartment yesterday. This will be my first full season at this marina (Dubuque Yardarm) and I think I am going to sleep a whole lot better knowing they take care of their customers.

    I agree Skip. C'mon, Spring!!
