Pictures from last winter, bottom paint touch up on the hard. Cold weather has some advantages, like walking on water. These pictures were taken last year during a 50 degree day when ideal for touching up the bottom paint. This winter has been mild so far I doubt the ice is thick enough to walk on. Fortunately the bottom paint is good shape this year.

PHOTO OF THE DAY AWARD
(December 7, 2006)
"Yes, you may recognize this (top) photo because it's been Photo Of The Day before. It's one of the alltime great winter boating photos, and it says a lot about the attitude northern boaters have. No need to complain about the weather! Hereís Barbara Nicholas checking out her FXA-31-3016H while husband, Tom, prepares to out on the ice to do some inspection and maintenance work. Tom and Barbara keep their boat up on Lake Ontario near a place called Henderson Harbor, and itís a beautiful story-book setting all year round. In the winter-time, of course, itís time for skiing and snowmobiling, but during warm weather itís one of the best areas anywhere to have a boat."
