Turnabout is fair play

Yes. As long as we have a picture of the guy, GG should post a selfie. Can she be as creative as Baygo? LOL (Thanks for being a good sport and adding some humor here.)

Embarrassing

Two finer men, experienced boaters, met with tragic ends.
Frivolous speculating about kayaks and flashlights is embarrassing and should not be part of a solemn thread. Have some respect and start...

Slips and sales

I agree that, especially for boats that are too big for valet, slip availability may make or break the sale. We may reach that point with valet in some areas. Other lakes will have to pick up the...

Do the bubblers also extend the growing season for milfoil and other invasives? What's the impact on aquatic animals? Why don'tr I see crayfish and sunfish anymore? Horned pout also seem to have...

Not all valet operate the same way. If you want to run errands or go to dinner, they just leave the boat in the water. If you leave Sunday night for the...

MVYC increased member dues effective 2020 by $500. Presumably that will mean an increase in prices there and there will be some turnover. I don't know what impact this will have on Valet. If MVYC...

To Bubble or not?

The nature of the OP leads me to think perhaps a new owner? Then the question is, how old is the dock, how constructed and what did the previous owner do? If you're off site for an extended time,...

It's been decades since I did this stuff. Isn't there one on the bottom of the water pump?
Using antifreeze is a relatively new idea to me. Maybe 20 years ago my marina started putting AF into the...

Don't wait

Do your search now. Quality shops do a lot of scheduling when boats are being winterized. Some can work out storage until they get your boat inside, so it doesn't matter if your shrink wrapped boat...

plug the holes

You're right, Dan, and actually, we haven't had much critter evidence except once over 10 years ago. As noted earlier, a lot of this is ritual. You can only change the ritual when the generations...

Kiss

For me, if you can drive it yourself without crew, it's not a yacht.
