Well no one wanted to ski anymore this year with the water temps being in the low 70's. So we pulled the boat out of the lake, took the drain plug out of the hull. Cracked open both 1/4 turn ball valves on the block and parked her in the yard and now she is winterized! :(

You know you've opened yourself up to much ridicule with this, right?!?!?!

Yeah we don't like the cold water either. We had one last hurrah at 53 degrees, and now that the water is in the 40s it's just too cold.

Wait, low 70's?! Sigh....

My friends did multiple sets in 64-65 in trunks last Sunday. I wore a shorty but the will trunk it down to 62-63 before talking about wetsuits. Seasons over for almost all of us. You're now forced to do all the wanted upkeep you put off...at least it should be a short off season.

Yea well i can understand you guys that are used to water in the 90s being cold in the 60s LOL. Us hot blooded people like the cold water. I truck it down to 60 as long as i got sun im perfectly happy, no sun and 60 start feeling a bit cold. 70s is perfect perfect lol.

Like i said i can understand you southern guys and cold water, i know when i lived in AZ i thought 50 was a cold day outside and not 50 is pretty dam warm as 60 and sun and im ready for the lake LOL

Yeah it is all about what you get used to. Nobody is on this lake, it isn't just us.

70s and no one on the lake. That sounds like an absolute dream!!!

It's all relative I guess.
