Already? How high above sea level are you there? We're further north and it's nowhere close to lakes freezing over here! I was boating until well into November last year.

mozzy, is that your boat?!? I've seen that video and that is why i tried to do it with my geico.
Rusty, i cut out holes in the scale looking intakes and i didnt put the sealed tubberware on and just the plasic cover so air could vent and circulate and i checked the temps right after and it wasnt even warm.

Lucky you, but, that's only good for people who don't get that kind of coverage.

I'm sure you get sick of it after the 3rd month & 8th foot of depth. Great for RC cars too!!
