The 2018 boating season is one for the history books (good riddance)

Last pump out....fuel up....and clean-out for the season.  This video and pic is just typical of the weather we had all summer long.  Maybe we put 30 hrs on the engines this year ( a travesty) and hence the little puff of black smoke from non use.  Now it’s “Goodnight Irene” until April.  I keep telling myself “next year will be better”  
Now it’s time to think about winter projects and more things I don’t need for the boat !

    I'm betting next year we'll see you at Rinkervous!!  (that'll make it a better year for sure).  30 hours is crazy!  We put half that on ours just over the first 10-day trip over the 4th!  Those diesels definitely want to be ran more often! :) Hopefully you still got to spend some time relaxing on her!

    Can't wait to see what mods you do this winter!   I know you've done a lot to make that boat even better every year!

    My boating season wasn’t good either, too many business trips this year during the summer. If it makes you feel any better I just finished my 4th season on my boat and it only has 91 hours on it.

    Capt Dirty, hopefully you did get many overnight's in the slip. I only got 40 hours this year.

    @randy56:  we spent every weekend on the boat, rain or shine. We didn’t always leave the slip,  sometimes we just grabbed a mooring ball for the day (or night) for a change of scenery when the weather was bad, or short trips to Philadelphia Marina when the forecast wouldn’t let us go further.  Hoping next year will be better. I doubt it could be worse.
