I feel for you guys in the winterize zone! I count down the hours until I can drive out to the marina and step onto the swim platform and feel the boat give under my feet as I leave land and come to my happy place. It may be too cold to take out of the slip, but I can still turn on the heater and throw on "Master and Commander" on the DVD player (a great cold weather boat movie!) and curl up in the on the Vberth under a blaket with a beer and be as happy as any man should! I do not think I could endure the loss of this for months on end!!! How can you stand it?
