At least in East Tennessee boating season is almost here. Yesterday it was 72 degrees and I typically try to get my boat back in the water mid to late March. Always makes me happy to think about boating season. A few things have to get done...buff hull, replace tach, fix stereo remote...maybe put speakers on transom...and the job I like least...cleaning mold that always accumulates when stored. All little things I can do before the boat goes in the water.

Wow mid March is way earlier then we usually get in water. May is more likely for us. Hard to think about boating right now still hoping to get in a couple more snowmobile trips. Hopefully we have several projects as well that I would like to get done before then. Fingers crossed.
We haven't had much snow at all this year and the temps have been well above normal, so it should be an early start for us if this continues. WayWeGo is already in the water and as soon as there is little chance of a hard freeze, we are good to go. Having a heated cabin to run the boat from is a game changer!

Our weather has been crazy as well. On Sunday we have 53 degrees - washed the cars, cleaned out the garage & took down the xmas lights. Tonight we are supposed to get 5 inches of snow & a high of 28 degrees.
Mark, the dirty water his us hard this week on the Columbia. We had an unusual amount of rain over a few day period and the rivers that empty into the Columbia brought a lot of silt down.
Our marina sits in a bay just off the river. There's not much current in there at all, but the river water does come in. We were down at the boat on Friday and the water was so dirty we couldn't see down into it at all.
