The dreaded end of summer thread for some and the “thanks for making room on the water” thread for the others.

The best boating is after Labor Day. That’s a fact. Attached File  IMG_8442.JPG   312.92KB   25 downloads

I have options but the temps are all the same...lol. I have a lake house that we go to all summer which we love. Being on the same lake all year is good as I keep boat on lift ready to go each weekend. Just a short season is all, still managed to get 50 hours this year...all surf time as we have pontoon and seadoo for pulling kids tubing and such.

I walked into Play It Again Sports yesterday for some rollerblades... and they have all of their of wetsuits 50% off for the next 3 weeks (until they bring out the Winter gear).... Just not sure I wanna wear someone else's pissy suit. But now you know you have some options.
