The Answer to the Question “Why Aren’t You Boating?”

The Answer to the Question “Why Aren’t You Boating?”

We can’t tell you how many times people ask “Why aren’t you boating?” this time of year.  The answer to the question is that we simply can’t because our boat won’t come out of storage for at least 3-4 weeks.  Captain Fixit has been there to wax, and was there earlier this year to paint the bottom while standing on the ice!  Our boat is stored under a shed each winter, which is much better than having the boat shrink wrapped or stored on land under a tarp.  As you can see in the pictue, the boats are lifted via an overhead rail system within the shed and then lowered to the slip which has planks laid across the docks to support the boat.  Since our boat came out early in October, it will be one of the last ones in this spring.  They remove the boats via the same overhead rail starting at one end and then working its way down to the opposite end.   There is something wrong with taking the boat out of the water for 7 months of the year!  We are so jealous of you warm weather boaters!
