Hopeing to hit a week maybe two in October, which will be in wetsuits and or possibly Dry suits. This season has been a really tuff boating year. Weather, commitments and Now an Algae Bloom that is affecting numerous lakes all over Alberta has many lakes closed to swimming and boating.
Still holding out hope to get a couple more weekends out but it has been hard. Still hate to think about winterizing,after just getting back from Florida a couple weeks ago (learning to ski properly). I want to get a little more practice in before all is forgotten.

In Denver, CO. our last day is thanksgiving regardless of the weather. Unless we get a nice day before 12/1, when they close the local lakes to all watercraft. The water is usually in the low 40, but there has been ice on he to break for the ride.08 LSV

LOL ice to break, reminds me that a local marina does a Christmas ski run every year and they have broken the ice before to do it.
You guys that stay riding late, do you do anything to your boats to keep stuff from freezing overnight? My old boat I couldn't let the water sit in the tubes for the venturi type speedo pickups because water would freeze and break the tubes inside the sending unit. I think the newer boats run off a different system, so maybe that's not an issue anymore (with the paddlewheel style). I'd think I could put antifreeze in the system each time I use it before putting it away, but then won't I be dumping antifreeze into the lake when I run? Curious on what others do when riding late in the season with freezing temps overnight.Current - 2003 Outback

Re: Surf Expo
Congrats on the house cns. Maybe we can meet up here soon. Where'd you find the house at? Oh..as far as last day...Halloween costume ride is a must so not before that for sure. Most likely well into November.

Plus, I'm not a fan of drying off all the dew off my boat in the morning. UGH. What a pain. Yeah, I don't have covered storage for my boat.
I'm honestly not sure when I'll throw in the towel. It will certainly be when ski season starts, though I might make myself available to ride on other boats of people more passionate than me. I do have a farmer john with a jacket, but even then, I'm a cold water wimp... It's hard for me to do water temps below 55.
Some of it also might depend on what kind of solution I come up with for winter "storage".2008 Moomba Mobius XLV. Monster Cargo Bimini, Kicker HLCD 6-pack, Polk Cabins, Infinity Subs, PPI amps, WS420, Exile BT, upgraded ballast pumps, up to 3,500+ pounds of ballast, Blue LED's...
