With the odd warm weather, I figured id bring this up now. Pulling the shrink off Sunday and then the cleaning begins... Hope to be wet in a week or so ....

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.

Groundhog Phil calling for 6 more weeks of winter was fake news.

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

Correction: The snow's due Friday, not tomorrow. That will make all the difference, or not. 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.

Actually sold, but not sure if I will follow through. I think I will, have two boats to look at. Will know soon.
