    Hmm do I sense a bit of sarcasm?

    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.

    I thought all the lake in Alberta were filled with toxic goo from the tar sands mining???

    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.

    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.

    Dependent upon: Weather, My busted up elbow, Willing Victims, Commitments Wife has made without my knowing...

    63 degrees and raining here but supposed to be in 80's next week.
    I might be a willing victim. I live in Vancouver as well (Salmon Creek) and get off work at 4pm typically. Have a buddy that's a polar bear with more passion than money, so if he can surf he'll pretty much brave any water/air temps.

Keeping the boat out and doing ski patrol takes more time then I have so boating stops when I start patrolling.
    I hear ya. Once ski/snowboard season starts for us, we'll just hit up the mountain every weekend until the season's over. Of course, I still have to do the Board/Board day where I snowboard and wakeboard in the same day. ALMOST did it last year in April but the water was 53 degrees and I just couldn't bring myself to do it. I'm a wimp!

    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've noticed that a LOT of people have that mindset. There were a crap-ton of people out on the river on Sunday and I think it was everyone trying to get "one last weekend" before other sports took over.

    Where did you move to again? Certainly somewhere warmer than the Pacific NorthWET!



    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".
