Default winterizing on an 85* day

Yep. Something not right about that. Was sweating like a pig yesterday in 85* temps winterizing the boat. I always thought you should be doing that in 50* weather. ugh......

Doing the “OSP” tomorrow 😞. Low 50’s so at least no sweating involved.

I’ll be doing mine tomorrow also, so at least it’s only going to be in the 50s. Certainly makes it easier when it’s chilly out, still sad though. Especially after the summer we had, only 15 hours of run time on the boat as opposed to close to 40 last year. Still had some fun though.

Yep. We sold our Sea Ray late June (didn't put it in till Memorial Day weekend) then bought the Crownline late August and had to pull it mid September for flooding so we might have got 12 hours in this year.

Finishing mine up tonight. Have to get a few things out of it, pull the batteries then take it to the caves tomorrow.
