And brought it home and put it on the charger. (Battery Tender, Jr.) The weather was going to be good today so I wanted to check everything since I put it up a few months ago. Checked and added air to the tires. I wiped down everything including the NASTY tower. I may get some tarps next season to put over the entire boat.

Anyway, I'm jonesing to take it out. Just a few more months... :rolleyes:

Must be nice. I'm in about 8 inches of snow and still coming down. About 20degrees (which by the way is warm because I was freezing my nuts off 2 weeks ago at -21) so no end in sight for this winter :(

In all likelyhood - won't get the boat out of the garage for at least 3 more full months.

Not sure how you would get the extra material into your bindings. I know I couldn't, that's for sure. I find with my drysuit that my exposed areas or those not in the suit don't get too bad, but I have heaters in my boat :)

Why wouldn't ya? On a trailer or on my lift? Left my outback there for 10 years. Storage fees are very reasonable. With the money i saved i get to renovate it now

I'm from Thunder Bay Ont. now living between Milwaukee and Chicago and my wife freaks if our boat is stored outside. Don't get me wrong, it's on the lift from April until October, but after that it's in our heated garage. I do have a couple buddies on the lake that keep the Outboard Mastercrafts on the lift all winter, but there in the channel, not that that makes a huge difference.

Ahhhh, If i had room in my garage i'd love to keep it there. But I don't so I make do with the lift. I'm in a shallow bay, there is only 2 feet of water /ice under the boat right now

Yeah I give you credit man!

I like winter projects so the boat goes in the heated garage and the truck stays out. With that said I would give up my garage for a place on the lake like that:grin:

Sunny and 53 unpacked Fierah from her comfy garage took her for a little drive to Lake Oswego to Exile so Brian and Bill can take some measurements on some new products there looking into for the Moomba lines :)

I keep my baby in the garage too. But If i could get a lake place - I'd leave her on the lift all winter too and call it a good trade :)
