    Cool Still Going

    I was all ready to winterize my boat after all the awefull weather we have had as of late. We have had a few nights of frost with the weather hovering around the 5-10 celcious mark for about the last 3 weeks,with a very few nice days in between.
    I was really ready to give up when the weatherman said we would have 28 C on saturday but that usually changes dramatically when saturday comes.
    This time they were actually right and it was actually 30 C where i went out too,same weather as ORLANDO Florida,if you can beleive it.
    Water was COLD at 50.8F warmed up to 54F by days end. Thank God for Drysuits.
    We had an awesome day of absolute GLASS water from 10am till 4pm,so we skied and boarded till we could no more. I sit here ,TIRED,SORE and HAPPY,thinking i just may wait one more week to winterize Hoping to go out 1 more time. FINGERS CROSSED.

    Good for you guys. I was in the water today as well - pulling in the doecks - in wet suit. But water was definitely skiable if the opportunity had been there.
    If you believe something to be true, it will be - in it's consequences.

    Unreal Mikey!
    30C. I guess that's another advantage Calgary has over Edmonton.
    Quoting your post in another thread last week:
    "Now the big question is do i wait and hold off on winterize or HOPE fo one more nice weekend????"
    Congrats on being a believer.
    Though the 3 skiis I got in Saturday still have me smiling, I was all set with two buddies to go again Wednesday afternoon cause there's another temp spike in the cards, but the dealer cannot juggle my appointment for winterizing....mid-November might be a block cracker.
    Notes to self:
    - Don't book a winterizing next year until Thanksgiving.
    or
    - Read the posts, tool up, and figure out how to do it myself.

    Cool

    I'm watching the weather carefully and i have pulled the plugs on the block to let the access water out of the block just in case..My winterize gear is ready to go and i am going to do it next sunday no matter what as i have no time afterwards.
    I'm just trying to arrange one more outing on Saturday if i can,but if not at least i go out on a high note.. So far weather may cooperate although not 30C,but anything over 15 and i'm in,Thats what drysuit are for anyways and can be worn to keep warm in the boat if need..,.Crossing my fingers and toes.

    It's 18 degrees outside, sunny skies and my local lake is flat calm with only rowers out on it. I can't find a single soul who would be even remotely interested in going for a tow. &$)!?&@!!! This is probably one of the most frustrating things I find as a boat owner....... Sigh.....

    Yeah, cold weather sucks. I won't be able to be on the water for most of January.

    Loosing that month due to weather makes me sad

    holy crap the forecast for central Indiana this weekend is calling for high temps in the low 80s with calm wind!!! There's a wakeboard tournament at the local ski club so we're packing up and taking the moomba to one of my favorite lakes- Brookville Reservoir where the fall colors should be in full effect and hopefully the water temps are low enough to keep the jet skis and tubers off the lake. Then it looks like the temps will stay in the 70s next week so hopefully I can get back to the ski club at least a few more times. Last year my last ride was Sep 26 and I winterized Oct 15 so right now I feel like I'm skiing with bonus time!
