    Default ....summer winding down

    Anyone have there boat put up yet for the winter?

    I probably only have about 2 or 3 more weekends of good (warm enough for other people to come with me) weather. Just curious if anyone else has thought about the painful word of winterization?

    Enjoy while you can, winters can be long.

    ya, thought has crossed my mind...
    mid-90's here today and saturday, but I think it'll be the last days of 90's. rest of september 80's will be considered nice days..
    might not do much surfing, but still nice enough to just go chill on the water and enjoy some beers..

    they started draining our lake(reservoir) on the 23rd of august, so all the docks are out of the water


    I HATE WINTER....

    With the storms we have had here everyday for the last 2 months you would think we already put the boat up.
    Typically we ski until mid to late Oct here. Then the water temp gets down to the chilly low 70s and no one will get in it. Then the boat gets put up.

    I know it sounds that way but you have to remember, when it is 50 degrees outside in January and we are wearing our jackets (windbreakers to others) we are FREEZING! It is all of what you get used too, so yeah we are probably not so spoiled but just cold water wimps!

    WOW..

    your's would have never even come out up here then. my lake hasn't hit 70deg yet this year. highest was 68 in the hottest stretch of august..

    I get what you are saying tho. used to spend 2 weeks every january in phoenix golfing. funny as heck to go to dinner after in shorts and a shirt when temps were 65-70 and see all the locals in long pants and coats

    we'll be able to go up here until thanksgiving as long as there is not snow on the ground....

    Of course you have to have a heated garage because there are lots of nights where it will freeze pretty good..... can you say drysuit!!!

    because this is my first year with my V-drive and i didn't get it until mid august i will prolong the season as long as i can!

    It's supposed to be down in the 70's at night next week. When the water temp dips below 80 I'll have to think about puttin' her up.
