I'm not understanding this "end of season" thing. It seems like a self imposed sentence of misery.
So your boats out the water sitting on a serviceable trailer......this is where I start from every week.
It's nice being on the trailer because you can keep up with all the we jobs that need doing and you sleep better when it's blowing a gale out there.....down side, you have to spend an extra 5mins putting it in and another 5mins pulling it out, down at the marina.
We've had some cracking runs out in November and December, February & March can be difficult, but I've steamed the water pump to thaw the ice and dragged the boat out over two inches of snow in the drive.....was it worth it, probably not, but even Loch Lomond can be a nice run in the winter when it's quiet.
Come on guys.....need more of a "can do" attitude
