Washing my Boat outside in January...in Ontario, Canada
 
I live in southwestern Ontario, Canada. Last year we could ride our sleds for about 2.5months straight. This year there hasn't been a single trail open yet in my area.

Just got done finishing my 4 bag, jabsco auto ballast system, all bronze hardware, full stainless thru hulls, tried not to cheap out...

It was 12C (54F) and sunny the other day so I decided to pull my boat and give her a wash!

Enjoy the pics...

Also, looking for other opinions, should I add the large AIR decal from 00-02 SANs. I peeled the factory decals off and added the Super Air 210 from

oh man that's a good looking rig. congrats on the auto ballast setup... i hope you have about 3k worth of bags in there!!

please don't put the decal on the side. your boat is exactly... and i mean exactly the way I would want it done.

two thumbs up from a fellow Canadian

I am in Phoenix, Arizona. 54 degrees with snow on the ground and washing your boat sounds so crazy/funny to me. Good on ya ��

Just south of you in Rochester, ny. Know what you mean!

Great looking boat! Clean!

Pretty pumped about thin ice on our lakes. Thaw faster!,,,,,

Normally I'm a minimalist. Less is more. I like solid color hulls but with white gel I think it could use something to break it up a bit. Either a simple AIR or NAUTIQUE decal or maybe some sort of pinstriping at the water line would look sharp.

I would either leave it as is or add the super air nautique graphics from the blue boat below. The problem with the air graphic is I think it would end up being a little bit below the water line if you planned on putting it just below the grey stripe.

I personally like the clean look it has now and would not change anything. I am sure it will still good no matter what you do with it.

I like the boat as-is and think it is great you were able to wash it this time of year!

Where abouts do you live? I'm in chatham kent, I ride in erieau but looking for more spots close by to travel to this summer. Where do you ride?

delmage171 02-02-2012 1:58 PM

Yeah I am going to leave it clean for now and maybe add something down the road! The AIR decal would probably be under the water after I fill it up with enough ballast!

I am from just outside of Sarnia. We ride about 25min away from chatham! As much as we can in the summer. We are always looking for more riders/drivers and the water always looks like this!

This is me behind my buddies xstar! Let me know and we should meet up this summer. I can give you details on this spot too!

MUNS 02-03-2012 12:21 PM

OH MAN!! I would love to know where that spot is. I have always wanted to ride in blue water like that
my email is darrelleskritt@hotmail.com hit me up with that info about that spot and we'll have to get some riding done this summer!

Love that boat on the boat mate trailer might be my favorite I have seen on this site.

delmage171 02-03-2012 7:41 PM

Thanks for all the comments guys!

Definately stoked for spring!

Funky! I am still in awe about this boatmate trailer. I don't think I could own another boat without one now!

brett564 02-03-2012 11:18 PM

I like the clean look also, but when I think of the solid color clean look, I don't think of two different colors. Because of the two colors you have, I would go with the decal. IMHO...

That looks nice and clean without the stickers. Whats that white stuff on the ground, soap bubbles?
