Boat is looking great. Good to hear you are getting it sorted. Aren't they nice on the water. Can you arrange to send some of that rain down this way.

Thanks all,

Is great to finally be on the water, wish the weather would allow it as it is still raining and looks to be that way for the remainder of my holiday break. But we do need the rain.

Alan,
They are awesome on the water and a ton of fun.
Wish I could send some rain your way as we all need it!

Hope are are all having a good Christmas and a happy new year 🥳

Thanks gents,

Matt,

Where I live our boating season is all year round! 😁

Winter temps are average of 15 degrees cel to about 24 in the middle of the day.
We swim all year round here.

Boat will get plenty of use.

We are planning lots of camping trips this year
