I thought May-November maybe it. I have drag raced, road raced, and sportbike raced for years and found most of the winter to be a nice break. I would spend that time working on the vehicles, readying them for the next season. Unfortunately Im unsure how I could work on a 25-30' boat on the hard. Im assuming most places wont allow you to "wrench" on your boat when on the hard. Perhaps thats something Ill look into...someplace that I can work on it off season. Seems a waste to leave it sitting for 6 months, in storage. Id rather spend the warm season, learning to be a better sailor, rather then working on my rig.
