I am planning on making a day trip to Powell tomorrow. The mornings have been in the teens to mid 20's and my boat is not winterized. Do you think I will be alright to tow for 3 1/2 hours in temps like this? Any advise would help, thanks.
Dan, the venting for the bilge and engine are going to be blasting cold air all around the block and through the boat. Drain the water out of the engine just as you would when winterizing. It doesn't take long. When you're stationary the boat venting doesn't let that much heat transfer so the engine compartment takes longer to cool. BTW I cracked a block on a car that was out of the garage for 4 hours when I was young.
Hey Ryan, yeah its Debeque. That day got pretty cold but who cares. Tad and I are trying to get up there before the end of the week. Let me know if you can get out and go. I haven't said its over yet. Starting on Saturday, I will be working on the mountain for the next couple of months so this is my last week. Sucks.
I'm actually headed to Rangely for work, so I probably won't be able to make it. We will have to make a Powell trip next summer. I just got a WakeKite and I'm pretty anxious to use it. Anyways, take care man. I'll pm you my number. later
