Mid/Upper Chesapeake season is about 9 months +/-.

There will be plenty more decent sailing days this month, but I will be heading out to winterize this week. March is about 50/50, more like 80/20 if you have a cabin heater.

When my brother kept a boat in the Mid-Bay region, he never had to winterize the engine (a bit risky, if you ask me). Down in the Lower Bay it's probably safe to forego winterizing?

Will be interested to hear reports from further south.
