When are you going out (northerners)??
« on: April 08, 2011, 05:52:41 PM »
I was so glad to see the site back up.  Thank you for all of your hard work, Tim!

I'm excited to say we go to pick up the boat tomorrow!!  Some of you may remember we had an issue last year of our carpet being soaked after we took it in for the 20 hour service.  The dealer determined it was an issue with our cover, so we are getting a new cover as well as new carpet.  I can't wait to see it!  In addition, based on all the great feedback we received here, we had two transom speakers added, as well as a bimini top installed.  I'm almost as excited to pick her up tomorrow as I was last year when she was brand new!  It's supposed to be 75 and sunny here Sunday (NE Ohio) so I may try to talk DH into getting on the lake. 

What are your plans for getting back on the water?

We got in the water today with our new GS289, a little cool today but the next 2 days will be in the high 60's, great for cruising!

Just waiting on the night time temps to stop dipping below freezing... thinking that might be this week. Boat is out of storage and back at home. Gotta re-install the wake tower and change her oil before I take her out.

Just picked up ours on Saturday. ;D  We still have to wash, wax, and load everything back in.  Can't wait for some free time and a little warmer weather. 8)

You have to love this New England weather.  I should have played hooky last Friday when it was gorgeous out.  Now she sits in the driveway mocking me.  Oh well, maybe by June the rain will stop.
