Hey I'm going to be up in Minneapolis Minnesota late January. I'll get exact dates soon. Work trip with my business partner. We need to grab a beer. I want to check some chit out while I'm there. What's cool to do in January up there besides play b00bies and get drunk?

Going out for a beer or three would be great. Let me know as soon as you know as I tend to be out of town a fair amount of the weekends in January and February.

There is always ice fishing and snowmobiling, but so far this isn't much of a winter. There is a new flight simulator at the Mall of America http://www.flyaces.com/. I'm sure we could come up with something to do.

Do take into mind. Texans don't have the need for winter clothes. If its 5* outside up there I'm going to be inside.

When its 30's here people forget how to drive, turn their good attitude to a foul one, or stay inside. We are used to 3 months of over 100* days where there are heat warnings etc, most of us are not good with cold weather.

I can assure you, I do not have the proper attire for ice anything lol.

It's like our winter coats are your wind jackets. I have 4 long sleeved shirts that are not dress shirts. There is no need for long sleeves here. Short sleeves and maybe a jacket but no need for heavy clothes.

The kind of weather that you have makes me fear heading north not prepared.

I always throw the ice fishing and snowmobiling at guys coming from warmer climates. Average temp in St. Paul in mid-January is a high of 24 and a low of 7. The coldest January recorded temp is -41

I'm sure we can find something to do indoors. Boat Show is the last weekend in January. A trip to Midwest Mastercraft is always an adventure.

Will you just respray gel? Also, what brand are you using? Did you not have a backing plate for the cleats?

I'm going to fill it in using a patch kit from spectrum color. The cleats have the factory glassed in backing plates. I used them to tie up to other boats in a pretty busy river. I think the spider cracks showed up due to the stress from passing boat wakes. I started using the eyes on the transom this year. They seem to be a lot stronger.

I will. This is my first time repairing gelcoat, so hopefully it will turn out well.
