Default Who is out?

Boating in the midwest or any place else that has seasons it is that time of the year. Putting your baby away for the season.

I know I get overwhelmed with putting away our boat. I would have liked to be out by now but not in the cards yet at our marina.

Hopefully next weekend it gets hauled out, the bottom power washed and put on its trailer so I can shrink wrap it and put it away for another season.

How is everybody else doing?

Any boat elevator rides yet?

I am, quite sadly, out for the year. Cleaned, winterized and stored for the year. Worst time of the year.

Stupid MN weather.

"elevator rides" LOL!! We rode the elevator September 22nd. Washed and unloaded. The following weekend was crap. The weekend of Oct. 6th we winterized her and shrank wrapped her. I have to go back this weekend to clean a few bilges, double check that everything is done, and take the drive off and bring it home.

I am out as of Saturday. Changed oil and filter, fuel filter, new thermo and gasket, drive oil change and filled it up with the pink stuff. Then drove it 500 yards to the indoor storage building where she will sit until April 1.
So sad

I'll be going out fishing between now and Thankgiving. I winterize that weekend and bring her back to life the second week of February.

Ours is out and winterized. She'll be going into storage this week. Doing the final preps now. Hopefully with our upstate NY weather I can have her back in late April or early May.

Glad to hear from all us seasonal boaters.... Its looking like by the time our boat gets hauled out I could be dealing with november weather......

We have had 70 degree weather here in the midwest this week. Down to the highs in the middle 50's this weekend...
