    We have lift off and onto indoor heated storage. Is it spring yet. Lake St. Clair was rough as **** today which made my last trip of the year that much more special.

    Been paying for our warm Michigan Fall this week.  With the way the trees were dancing I half expected to see a witch with a house on top of her.

    Unloaded the boat today and cleaning and winterizing tomorrow. It just doesn’t seem right winterizing on a day that is supposed to hit 85 degrees. My rack and store building closes Oct 15th, I travel during the week, next weekend daughter has softball tournament and following weekend  I will be in vacation so it looks like an early year for me.

    Nope... I’m gonna thread the needle this year and leave it in until November!!!

    I can’t, canal system closes Oct 16 so have to get it to her winter home. But after that I’ll be out of action a few weeks anyway.

    Welcome to Florida, where the sun shines and no need to winterize. LOL

     Where it's too hot to boat in the summer, the days are too short in the winter. LOL

    1st or 2nd week in Oct I think I'll be pulling the boat out.  Moving to a new harbor next year as well.  A harbor that has a pool and nice accommodations for kids.

    After I replace the cracked water distributor housing on the starboard engine. Lifted hatch to check another issue and the long there brown stain under this was not wet and larger as the admiral pointed out. Blue plug dripping, pulled out and put back in and dripping still but I suspect the housing here has been cracked awhile as it then popped as I tightened the plug. Bugger. At least I can address now versus on the ride down.

    Order and replace this week then run her up and see if I can see where I also appear to be losing gear fluid.

    Made it out fishing this weekend and the water was great and the weather was great. Couple more weeks to enjoy the boat.

    Sure was a beautiful weekend!  Gonna be mid 80's this coming weekend too!  I'll keep enjoying it, but I am going to change the oil in the engines and drives soon, just to be better prepared.  I am usually happy to be done by end of October.  I enjoy the cozy fireplace in late fall (November) with boat all covered on her lift & no worries.

    Hopped on a flight to CT on Friday, spent all day Saturday and most of the day Sunday on friends boats...

    After moving to FL it was nice to feel that warm, but cool air up on Long Island sound... got back to FL early this morning (1am, thanks jetblue for delaying the flight 7 times)... something has changed over the weekend, it wasn't blistering hot anymore. Can't wait to see what winter is like!!

    Where your at, you might have already seen it! I have lived in central Fl most of my life...a few years in ND and then a few in the Middle East and then back to FL late teens....Oct. we might have a cool front or two start to make it's way. It was 67 this am around 5 when I did my walking...last week it was still 75. The humidity is the biggest change and the temps will be high 70's to mid 8os through the rest of the year with a couple of cold snaps. January/February can get pretty cold- can see freezing temps for extended times or not see anything at all. March, well it's spring break time, weather starts to warm some but can still have cold snaps and after that, it's summer again.
    That's a FL winter.

    Yesterday was the first day of fall, was in the 90s.  The little lady is off all weekend but sadly i wont be on the lake, race weekend in Charlotte. Ill be out again weekend after next.  


    South Carolina winters can be snow Monday and Tuesday, in the 70s by Friday. 

    The closer you get to the coast the more often the 70 degree days you get during the winter.
