Default Ice in 2017/2018



It's hard to see, but there's a little ice on Salmon Meadow cove this morning.

I guess it's almost time to fire up the sled and tow two barefoot waterskiers through the channel !

Can't wait for Santa to take his annual plunge into the lake and post the video. It's going to be a little colder than the past few years

One thing about being out here so late is you don't have to worry about boat traffic...or Glendale dock space!

Did you pull out this weekend? We are still in the water. Time to wrap it up unfortunately.

Nope...that was the plan, but it looks like wed. These morning commutes are getting pretty dicey...

I keep wondering if you don't worry about a frozen engine?

Outboards are no concern as long as they are in the water. Looks like ours is getting pulled next Monday. One more boat ride on Sunday for me

It is not quite cold enough to damage an I/O yet, but its time to get them out.

During the real cold temps i left the i/o at home so i could keep a droplight in the engine compartment turned on...just in case. Those early morning pontoon boat commutes leave a little to be desired!

OK. I wondered when I saw the I/O. You might freeze in the pontoon but at least the outboard won't.

One morning was so bad...winds were coming from the northwest...3 foot swells...I was kneeling in the middle of the boat trying to avoid getting wet, but the water splashing off the right pontoon was being blown back onto the boat...it was like watching a Hawaiian surf movie. I couldn't have gotten any wetter walking through a car wash. That coupled with the 22 degree temps turned the deck and myself into a frozen mess!

And the Coors Light is not even cold. If it was, the mountains on the can would be colored blue. 😞
