Damn all you warm weather lake boaters. December 4th is gonna be the saddest day of the year for me. It will be the first time in my life that i'll be counting down days till April.

I can't wait until the upcoming boat show in January. I'll be sure to grab a handful of 1 day moorage coupons. Where do you boat during the cold and wet season? I've got my boat "laid up" technically, as I've had it winterized. But that doesn't mean much as I've got the 260hp MPI motor. There's 1 blue valve and two pet cocks to open which drain the entire engine block to the bilge. So I could take the boat out anyway. I'm considering watching new years eve fireworks from the boat, depending on the weather. The main problem I see right now with boating is sea-state. Especially with the wind ripping through like it has all this week.

I spent a little over a year on the USS Tinosa, decommissioned her. Then spent another 6 on the USS Georgia (SSBN 729). I'll keep an eye for you at the Marina. I'm sure we'll run into each other.

Default sea states

it's really great boating here even in the winter...we boat all yr long (cept when it's like it's been the past month.....damn I'm dying to get out there)......
I store my boat at dagmars landing ..keep a few heaters going and also drain everything...all the lines and tanks get drained out....since you have a little bitty boat....it's easy..just flush the motor thru the outdrive and then drain everything....we only winterize if we feel we're not going to boat for more than a few months....but I like to go just about anywhere, time alotting......

Sub - SP and I have an advantage over your boat in the winter - Enclosed and diesel furnace/heaters.
SP and I boat all year; thought SP has called our boat a barge during the winter months.
In fact last Sat wasn’t raining so we went down for the day; we like to think of our boat as our condo on the water.
Our little boat stays up in Lake Chelan wrapped up until about May.

When the sea state is a mess - we don't go out. Just not much fun busting swells for a couple of hours, not to mention the danger!

Default Which Maxum

I have a 2100SC see:

http://sempreveloce.tripod.com/

And I dug into it in such detail, that I earned a Master Mariner title from another web site..(Its in the link above)

I must say that over the 4 seasons it has been a good platform, its kind of an Inspector gadget boat in that one son wants to fish, the older boy is the daredevil - make it go fast and I'll skii - Mom just wants to sit in the back chatting with girlfriends sipping Pina Coladas.. and Dad likes to explore and do all the above...

I do not like the fact that design deficiencies are never corrected or addressed in subsequent year releases and some of the materials used have not held up well.. I have seat cushions for instance that are splitting, and the boat is not abused... Now perhaps any manufacturer would have the same, guess I'll have to see. My particular boat really should come with tabs installed, another area where Maxum is falling behind... when I installed them on the 2100SC it made a very positive and beneficial change to the boat handling and ride See http://www.thehulltruth.com/forums/thre ... 9#M1158689



Anyway glad to have you as a new member and look forward to exchanging ideas..

I'm doing a water test on the 3rd. If it goes good, then I'll be the proud owner of a 2000 1800sr. Comes with the trailer. There are four lakes within an hours drive. Three hours will get you about 15 different lakes. Monterey is about an hour and forty-five minutes north.
