Re: When is your season over for the winter
Haulout 10/15 or 10/17, haven't decided yet.. I was going to do it today, but it's already cold and rainy... I doubt things will get better between now and then, but maybe I'll feel a bit better... I hate getting wet to haul, couldn't get the boat high enough on the trailer last year, spent like 2 hours in 55 degree water up to my chest... NOT GOOD. This year I have a plan. If things work out, maybe I won't be having to swim so much.. Crossing fingers.
By the way, trailer-launching a deep fin keel boat, even with a steep ramp <> my idea of fun. Actually launching is easy, retrieval.... THAT's the tough part.
