Un winterizing
« on: November 06, 2020, 10:01:36 AM »
I chickened out a few weeks ago and winterize the boat, I guess I couldíve had it sitting in the driveway with a trouble light for a few weeks.
Whatís $12 worth of RV antifreeze when it comes to another night camping on the river.

Always a decision to be made at the end of the season as to when to winterize. I tend to be cautious, favoring an earlier date because the consequences of below freezing temperatures out weight one or two more boat trips.

I had 10 trips this year and am satisfied.

Sounds awesome!  I had to travel to Houston last week, so all the boats are winterized and stored.   In the meantime I'll just live vicariously through you two.  Hope you have a great outing with no issues!

Adam and Jenna from the treasure island marina stopped by. Apparently they are the last boat at treasure island. Lol
