*** Surviving The Off Season ***

So I figured I'd start a thread where we can talk about what the northern MC owners are doing to manage this time to reflect on last season and rebuild, restore, upgrade our boats. As well as other activities and interests for winter. I know I've seen a couple other snowmobilers on here and some pilots etc. A good way to get advice, idea's, on many topics. So I'll start:

The maristar is getting a new interior in the cockpit. New front seat and rear sun pad etc. Also a new snap on sunbrella cover for bow and cockpit (I leave mine in the water 24/7 and theres no canopy) As well as perfect pass just needs installed. After that I still have some stereo tinkering, interior lighting and possibly that decadence flooring. Was finally winterized two days ago.

I'll be planning many snowmobile trips. If anyones interested I am selling my lady's sled. I have just ordered new 136" camoplast track with rail extension and tunnel extension kit since last year destroyed my track.

Planning trips out west for snowmobiling and snowboard/skiing.

What are you guys doing and planning?
