It's ok Wayne, I'm on my boat right now, coincidentally, (that's a big word when you've had a beer or six) as the sun sets. It's 71*F. at 6:07 pm MST. Don't hate me...

I'm going to the boat this weekend for the first time in 2010. It's on the water year round, but it's too cold for any boating. Just doing minor maintenance work, smelling the teak and fiberglass and wishing it was summer :)

I just left mine as well. It's shirtsleeves weather here. What a strange January.

The nice part was being on the boat all day... the bad part was I was changing out toilet hoses and thru-hulls... peww!

It must be tough where you have to winterize your boat and only use it 6 months out of the year. I guess you could move south and dodge huuicanes and tornados or........................

Winter cruising in the PNW is some of the best.

So you can go scrape ice and shovel snow...............I'm going fishing.

I went to the boat today and did some maintenance work. Here's a pic that's only a couple hours old. There's a huge sailboat behind my boat that is polluting the view.... It peaked at 42 F today.
