Record setting 89* forecast here today. I know I'm about 1K south of you, but we never had winter. The exposure coveralls required for patrols when water temp is below 60* weren't ever broken out. To me, that's a trend for the whole east coast. I remember Phil telling us it'd be Six More Weeks, but I sure haven't seen it.

I love NY. Today it's supposed to hit 72 with thunderstorms late this afternoon. (They began an hour ago - 9:30 AM. So much for NBC's fantastic new weather radar!)Tomorrow there are supposed to be some snow showers in the morning, a drop of about 40 degrees overnight. I'd love to get started on spring prep but I think I'll wait a few more weeks till the weather's more stable. Hy

My new to me boat is still up at MarineMax in Ct.. We agreed on me taking delivery up there in mid April back in December when we closed. They've got a few things they need to do to it that were a condition of the sale once they take the wrap off. My son and I took a ride up there last week and they were confident that they can stick to that date. I can't wait!
Although, after selling my old boat early last June kind of sucked because I didn't have it all season, I have to say it was kind of nice not having to deal with all the fall maintenance and pre-launch clean up routine for a year.

I would have normally pulled the shrink and prepped the bottom at this point I did even have a clue when I will start at this point. Close to two feet of snow yesterday it's going to be a while before I can work on my boat!

I'm glad it doesn't seem anybody unwrapped based on my premature (and WRONG!!!) encouragement in this thread. Cold here, at least for us and mid-March, 30's and windy, forecast to be upper 20's around here tomorrow. Clear and pretty, though...

We were on a cruise to the Caribbean for 10 days. On our day at St. Maarten we went sailing, as passengers, on a four-mast sailing ship. The weather was perfect - sunny, with a strong breeze and a slight chop. I longed for getting our boat in the water. I told my wife I was going to start the preparations when we got home. She laughed. We dissenbarked at Fort Lauderdale on Monday, planning to fly home that evening. Wrong!!!! We didn't leave Florida till Wednesday, flying out of Palm Beach airport to JFK instead of Fort Lauderdale airport to Westchester airport, as originally planned. It seems there had been a strong snow storm up north, as you all know. Spring preparations are put off for a few weeks. It's just too cold and unpredictable. Stay warm, all. Hy

Once we get some warm weather, wrap is off, hull waxed, bottom painted and zincs attached. New owner looking to close April 27th.

And always remember, life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by those moments that take our breath away.

Botton sanded cover off canvas up. I was hoping to have the yard wax the boat but they told me today they don't have anyone to do it. Now I'm second guessing my decision to have pulled the cover being I'm heading out of town. Not sure when i will get in the water this year.

Went up to Ct. today to visit my boat. Wind, cold and rain didn't feel much like boating season is near. Target date for delivery is 4/21. Hope the weather gets more Spring-like by then or it's going to be a long cold ride home.

After looking for a boat for about a year we found a nice 2002 410 Sundancer with diesels back in November up in Ct. and closed in early December. Marine Max included winterization, wrap, storage, and Spring prep and detailing in the sale.
[URL=http://s103.photobucket.com/user/JVM225/media/410%20Sundancer%20Sig%20PicMedium_zpsbp9gabhc.jpg.html][/URL]
I'm going to keep it at my property in Lindenhurst.
I sold my old boat in early June thinking I had a deal on a 2004 380, but the seller was a knucklehead, so that deal fell apart and I went boatless last summer.
It turned out to be a good thing for me because I wound up with something I think I'll be happier with, and bad for the seller of the 380 because he's still trying to sell that boat.
It was nice having a winter off from winterization, storage, and making ready again for Spring, but I really missed my boat last summer and I'm glad I don't have to go another season without one.

Thanks! It's a Monaco Edition. That's why it has the blue stripe. We love it.
Going to be a tight squeeze at my dock trying to get the 45 1/2' LOA alongside 50' of bulkhead but the bow thruster should help.

You are going to be amazed how well the 410 handles around the dock. it will do exactly what you ask it to do. Make sure rudders are straight, leave throttles alone and it will do whatever you want it to do only using gears. But, with the tight squeeze you have the bow thruster will come in handy. I have never had a boat where I looked forward to docking, until this one. You will love it.

And I heard the blue boot makes it handle even better. :)

John,

Yes, that must have been me. I spoke to Howard Sr. today and assuming all is good, I should be starting my season next week. I am up the canal at Marinemax.

Took off shrinkwrap on Thursday. Friday and Saturday, they washed, detailed, and waxed "Family Affair'. She looks gorgeous. Best detailer I ever had. Need to do a thousand and one little things before launch. Hope to be in the water by next weekend. Weather is fabulous. Bouys are in in western Sound. Hoping to do a trial run next Saturday. Season's begun. Hy
