    Supposed to get 3-6" of snow this Wednesday.  But, good news is that it looks to be warming up after that.  I'm gonna try to hold off until mid-March, just to keep the boat cleaner cause water doesn't turn on until April at the dock.  But I could be in the water in 2 weeks!!

    But you have a blown impeller, so you are in the same boat as us northern boaters.

    Glad you're out enjoying the boat :) moving to the keys in July, wondering if the 270 would be a good keys boat... have a lead on a dock that would work... might be a lot of upkeep having an I/O year round in salt... no lift like HM. 
  • rasburyrasbury Sanford, FLPosts: 4,724Member ✭✭✭✭✭
    I would think a great keys boat...I'd put it on a trailer if I could...
  • rasburyrasbury Sanford, FLPosts: 4,724Member ✭✭✭✭✭
    What are you going to do in thet keys?

    No no no. Get a CC with a cuddly and twin OBs

    Guess it really depends on what you want to do with it. I can see Handy's point but surprised he didn't tell you to RV the keys!
  • Handymans342Handymans342 Posts: 7,188Member ✭✭✭✭✭
    RV to keys and rent a boat
  • rasburyrasbury Sanford, FLPosts: 4,724Member ✭✭✭✭✭
    That would make sense on a vacation....

    Really don't like those boats... I need lots of shade, cushions and a big downstairs with AC. I have this problem called being Irish and loving boating at the same time. Plus my new boss has a few boats I can use if it's just a short trip out.

    Where do we sign up for such gig? Agree with the shade is your friend.

    So what is the gig?
  • J3ffJ3ff Posts: 1,742Member ✭✭✭✭
    Tech work/Property Management... throw in some captain'ing on the weekends and maybe underwater photography of groups. That's the plan. Hopefully 2 out of 4 work out. 
  • rasburyrasbury Sanford, FLPosts: 4,724Member ✭✭✭✭✭
    Well, sounds like your "plan" has gotten you this far....good luck!
  • J3ffJ3ff Posts: 1,742Member ✭✭✭✭
    thank you :) have been through Sanford on the autotrain more than a few times.... maybe one of the times in the future you could show me what a FL lake is! 
  • Lake_BumLake_Bum Flagstaff, AZ Posts: 297Member ✭✭✭
    We got 40 inches of snow last weekend in Arizona. More coming this weekend, all the lakes should be loving it. I'm ready for spring fishing! B)

    Be happy to @J3ff....if I get my boat floating...and it's not the lake but the river...about 200 miles!
  • J3ffJ3ff Posts: 1,742Member ✭✭✭✭
    River? in FL? that sounds fun!!
  • rasburyrasbury Sanford, FLPosts: 4,724Member ✭✭✭✭✭
    Look at the St John's river...runs from Melbourne to Jacksonville out to the Atlantic....lake Monroe is the big lake in sanford...it's a nice boating area..
  • J3ffJ3ff Posts: 1,742Member ✭✭✭✭
    Wow pretty sweet, seems to go pretty far south too!!! Wonder how much of it is boatable.. 
  • rasburyrasbury Sanford, FLPosts: 4,724Member ✭✭✭✭✭
    Well, define boatable. As far as I'm concerned, where I live is Sanford so as far as a 270 or bigger, this is about it for south. Bass boats/ poontoon can go much further south and then you get down to airboats.
