    Default Do you plan on boating more or less this year?

    I'm really hoping to get out more than last year for sure. Only was out about 5 or 6 times and put about 25 hours on (Usually hit at least 50-60). I'd like to get out at least every other weekend if possible. How often do you plan on being on the water? I know those that live on a Lake will no doubt be out more. How many hours on the water would you say you put on in an average season?

    Good question Rick. If all goes according to plan, I plan to boat a lot more this summer. For one, I don't plan to be. without a boat for 6-8 weeks like last summer when I put the boat up for sale, not expecting to sell it right away, and somebody took me seriously and bought it the next day. All counted, I'd like to get 25-30 days on the water this summer. If the weather is co-operative and other circumstances don't take too much money, it could be a boating season. I'm hopeful!!!

    We went to the lake at least once a week last summer. We usually go on Fridays and pretty much have the lake to ourselves until the late afternoon when the weekend crowd starts to come out. We have gone on some Saturdays or Sundays but prefer going during the week...............

    We also got to spend some quality time in September with the Carl and Suzie, Dan and Denise, Larry and Gerry and Randy when we all rented the home on our lake for the forum get together..............

    We're going to make it a point to get out more this year. Like Daril, we prefer the weekdays to the weekends so it's not crowded.

    I don't have an hour meter, so I have no idea how much we did last summer. It wasn't enough, for sure!

    We plan on spending more time on the lake...hopefully the stars will align.
    We spent several weekends either camping or boating last year, took a few extra camping trips (new camper) and a couple less boating trips.
