    Man, it's unseasonably cold! I'm sure glad I drained my block and manifolds after I de-winterized.

    I was planning to get mine out on Saturday, but I abandoned the mission - 40's on Sat, Snow on Sunday and the coldest stretch of the winter coming up. March madness isn't just basketball in North Carolina.

    Make sure you check your insurance policy to see if there is a specific layup period. We can not launch until April 15 and must be on the hard by November 1 in order to have coverage. In the even of a claim, companies look for reasons not to pay. This period varies by company and geographic area. Some policies have no such requirement.

    Finally got her back in the water today (late afternoon ended being beautiful). I can happily state that my first attempt draining the block and manifolds must have been successful :)
