NJ just locked down movement. I was going to visit my boat today in preparation for removing the shrink wrap and considering which springtime chore I was going to start. I usually start with a scrub-down and waxing. But now with the lockdown, that isn't going to happen. I'm wondering if the season will even get underway this year. Has anyone else considered this or am I too early to think this might happen?

I was thinking same thing yesterday - should have been outside getting the boats ready, but didnít bother. If you are only allowed to leave your house for food and pharmacy, hard to imagine getting much boating in.

Went for a nice long walk yesterday to get some exercise, fresh air and take care of the beautiful weather we had here.
Cold today, and sketchy forecast for the beginning of the week. But if weather improves at the end of the week Iím going to unwrap the boat and get started on polish, wax and bottom paint.
Itís outdoors, exercise, and not likely to have others all that close to me at the boatyard.

Under Cuomo's order, marinas will have to be shut down, they won't be able to launch any boats

I bought a new to me used boat from local marina. Supposed to splash 4/1. Thatís off til 4/3 at earliest. I went on demo back in mid February. I said I didnít want the boat til 4/1. Of all things I was afraid of a late snow! I have memories of my dad having our then brand new boat in the water st Patrickís day 1981 only to have a Easter blizzard . While the shutdown makes sense, itís not sustainable. I imagine I will be in sooner than later as the underground economy grows. Stay safe all

As a full time liveaboard I am unwrapping next week. I am in my winter slip on a dock I share with 7 boats.
April 1st I will turn on the power and water to my summer slip. It is a condo dock and I will be the only one there for 2 weeks.
Works for me.

I can see this being a short season. As soon as the weather gets hot the virus will disappear just like the flu hopefully.

The place where I winter is an open boatyard so no problem getting in to work on the boat at anytime.
If I unwrap this coming weekend I probably wouldnít be finished with everything until nearer to the second week in April now if weather cooperates.
Hoping the boatyard guys will be free to launch boats by then.

im thinking by this time next week we should see some action at the yards. Be it allowed or not. Guys want to eat. So while it may not be a beehive of activity, I think you will see guys moving boats around yards and splashing whoever is ready.

I disagree and fortunately so does HRBYCA and most of the marinas around us, including yours. Marinas are essential to transportation.

On another note: My slip is ready and I expect to solo launch my CC when striped bass season opens April 1st. That sounds reasonable.

Man, you guys are lucky. The only thing Iím supposed to leave the house for is working on and/or driving boats!
