    I have admitted defeat for the year and will be pulling it home this weekend. Weather is till looking good, but we got some stuff going the following two weekends and I'm running out of water on the lift.

    I read in some previous posts that towing your boat with the ratchet style cover on can lead to some minor scuff marks and was thinking I would tow it topless for the short 50 mile trek. Do I have to worry about seat cushions blowing out while towing at 65-70mph?

    I am not admitting defeat until hopefully the last week in October. We try an run until ice comes on the lake here in Alberta. I was taught by Levi we ride from ice off till ice on to make it worth while to own a boat way up this way!!! Just hopin ice will hold till end of October.

    Giddy up!!!!

    No your seat cushions won't blow out. I always tow topless!

    IMO, it's worse on the cover to tow with it on, especially at higher speeds. I have always towed with the cover off and have never had a cushion even move let alone blow out of the boat.

    I think it'll be september 21. we are getting busy at work and will be there most saturdays thru thanksgiving so I'm about done. still a lot of yardwork to do to get ready for the snow. need to figure out how to winterize the new boat as well so that'll take a full weekend day in itself.

    hate to say it, but actively shopping CL for a snowblower. hoping I find a deal soon.

    I always tow with cover on and I've had stuff fly out on other boats without the cover..I tow lots of miles and 80mph...

    Looks like we have a few more weekends, was supposed to go this morning, 55ish, the weekends look warmer...

    I had the cooler cushion fly out of my boat. Happened the day I bought it actually, made me sick. Then I was driving one time and the same cushion was just like hovering in the middle of the boat. I slowed down about 5 mph and it dropped on the floor and all was good. I also now Velcro the cooler cushion and the one opposite of it to prevent this

    I as well lost a cushion out of mine the first day I got it towing it home. Ever since then I take the cooler cushion and the cushion right behind the captains chair and put them down under the helm to protect them from the wind. Those are the only two cushions that would have a problem.

    I just got informed next weekend would be our last trip to the lake for this season due to the kids busy schedule with school activities, well I guess it's time to get started full blast on the winter time boat mods
