Man I can't recall a spring quite like this. One nice week in April and now we've been stuck in this crap pattern...with no end in sight.

Makes it hard to get motivated to launch the boat. Inside she's spotless, dry, not getting bird crap on her...not getting snowed on....ughh.

They are now saying after next week this ship for weather will be out and warm-er temps will prevail. So we will send it across the pond to your side just in time for a wonderful Mothers day. Oh and I'm only wrong 68% of the time.
 
I feel ya, we went in the day after we had a week of 80’s and it’s been crap ever since. Hopefully a change later next week!
 
Weather has been shi**y here as well. I was just thinking haven't had a Spring wet/cold streak like this in a while. Luckily, the boats in the water so I don't have to make that decision, but better weather would be appreciated.

For what its worth, launch and enjoy. Extra sweater weather this year!
 
I'm putting in both boats early next week. Even if there's only one nice day per week, that's enough for me.

This is my first new boat so I'm anxious to get it out there.
 
I have a smidge of bottom paint to do, and paint my new lower unit. Fugedabot it. Cold, rain, wind next 10 days. I’ll be lucky to launch by Mem Day.
Mildest winter ever. Not a flake of snow. Worst spring ever, never seen one like this, usually in a month ago. I cant even get the zodiac launched.
It’s almost May and today wearing long sleeve T, flannel shirt, hoodie (a SeaRay hoodie of course). Farkin cold.

We’ve been in the 60s for a while. I really want to take the canvas down so we can use the boat in summer mode
 
They are remodeling our offices. New flooring, paint etc.
I have been banished from the office next week and told to work remotely...
It's a good thing I have good internet on the boat... :)
Don't care about the weather... being on the boat is better than being in my office...
 
Well talk about a broken clock being right twice a day .....

I went down to the yard and my new boat was gone. I looked all over (typical winter storage scavenger hunt) and couldn't find it. Last place I checked was the actual marina -- and it's in the slip .. early :eek: Looks like I'm in, just in time for several days of rain
