Is that 'tucked away' close to, or at your residence? If so, you can make the best of the situation by having a beer and turning on the tunes every so often. I've been known to do that quite a bit. :o I make myself get 'banished' to the garage just for that reason. :D Sometimes I let my other woman (wife) join me.

I keep it about ten minutes from the house.I'm currently looking for a house(or should I say a big enuff garage with a house)so I can keep my best friend closer to me. I took the battery out so no more tunes for five months:mad: :mad: .

You picked a great time to break ribs.You have all the winter to heal up.I took a bad crash eight weeks ago and brusied a few ribs.And it still hurts alittle to sneeze a cough.People tell me that rib injures take awhile to heal up.

Hopefully this will work. I had to resize the pic. This is my baby being put away for the winter.

I too had rib problems. Takes a while to heal.

sad to put the boat away, i like the few last min boat rides , esp with the leaves etc ,, just a great time of year,,

did the ribs kiting, which sucks because its the windy season here and still reasonably warm , im out for at least 2 weeks and most take 4 to 6 weeks to heal up ,
what a pain in the arse ,
but that being said , we had a great season and the new ride was perfect,, almost 200hrs this summer and the boat ran flawless,, looking forward to the perfect pass and new ski this spring
i love my mastercraft,,,

It's by far the hardest putting the boat in the barn for 5 months. After you only owned it for 2 or 3 weeks and drove it once at 40 degrees. By spring I'll forget what color it is. If I get a chance I'll get a photo of the barn you guys won't believe what a piece of sh... it is but it's free !. Next spring may be an addition to our 3 car garage at the house for the big boy toys.

Its whatever it needs to be to get you out there! Honestly, its just an open demo. We'll have a 197, X1, and who knows what else out there on Saturday at 11am.

We're meeting at Boy Scout Island on the Fox River in St. Charles.

Sad to hear you all are facing the horrible end of the season!! I live in New Zealand and our season has just started and it will only get better weather wise until February :D

I gotta say that sitting in your boat and turning the tunes on is definately well worth it, it just kind a refreshes the good memories of that nice summer day.

I don't know! I stumbled across it while I was searching for way to transport PS 197 from the east coast to the west coast! Pretty Scary if people actually ship their stuff like this!
