Update -

Well maybe there is something to this global warming. I had the boat out this weekend to deer hunt. This is 2 years to the week since I first posted this thread, and on Friday it had warmed up to T-shirt temperatures! The bugs were out aplenty as well! At the rate things are going I might be able to use the boat until December this year. Here are a couple of recent pictures from this hunting area that access with the SIB.

Personally my Searider goes out all year, all weathers, including snow, though it does get a bit chilly with no wind shield.

Well once the day time temperatures stay around 0C or colder, the freshwater lakes around here ice up solid pretty quickly. Most years this would have occured by the first week of November. But this fall has been extremely mild so far. The ice usually clears off around early to mid May.

I hear ya & you've got to dress for it, but boating with a windshield just isn't the same, to me it feels like your less contnected to the environment around you. Mind you if I were boating on wide open seas in such weather conditions I'm sure I would prefer having the protection of a cabin or wheelhouse available. Here in most of the bush lakes, you're usually at most about 5-6 miles (and usually less) from the nearest shore if you need to make an emergency landing and build a fire.

LOL - I am a wimp, but I'll definitely get back out there (at least once more this fall), nonetheless.
