Boating on Holidays

I'm wondering how many others out there avoid boating over the holidays. Comments?

I'm not boating so I don't have better things to do other than ask silly questions...

I'm staying off the lake for sure.

I may surf instead if the waves are good out at Symrna

Our lake isn't too busy on the holidays so hopefully I am not jinxing myself for this weekend!

Avoiding the ramps and waterways like the plague. Holidays bring out the really clueless boaters.

Early mornings and late evenings... but extra careful. If our usual spots are full of tubers we will surf the main channel on the way back to put it away...

I didn't used to. However, living OH once and now again, it's been fantastic! After crouded lakes in Indiana on holidays I headed out this past Memorial Day expecting to swim, tube but that water would be too rough to ski or board. I was shocked to get a ton of smooth water.

I presume two things: 1) tons of boaters head to KY and TN for bigger lakes on long weekends 2) the slightest risk of rain keeps OH boaters at home 3) go out on the last day of the weekend when many others are suburned and working off a hang over I'll be out on Mon with a buddy. If the water's bad, we'll surf his CC.
