It’s OK, 6 out of every 10 boaters suffer from it. It can be rather emotional and touchy to talk about. But we are here to talk about it in the open. Think of the pain and missed pleasure your partner is missing out. Pre Mature Winterizing is not just you, its your partner and boat as well. Now, sadly there is no pill for this yet. But you and your Woody Boat have no fear, there is a simple solution. There are Behavioral Techniques that can help, Medication and Counseling. Lets talk about them here. Woody Boater to Woody Boater.
Behavioral Techniques – Near the end of the season, leave your boat alone. maybe read magazines and look at pictures of amazing boats. Try and fight the urge to go out on the boat. Wait, and then when its kinda cold and you are about to Winterize the heck out of your boat, go out and ride. Ride like the wind. Feel the passion again, feel the wind flowing through your one hair on your balding head. YOU ARE ALIVE AGAIN!
Medication – Go out into the barn/ garage, whatever, open an old can of Varnish and take a deep sniff. Right before you black out .. because thats stupid… But when you pass out and hit your head, you will no doubt have to go to the hospital, thus avoiding Winterizing, and maybe just maybe you will get a warm boat ride in! Then again, there is always Warm Hot Chocolate on a cool boat ride with your loved ones. mmmmm Hot creamy chocolate. Maybe with some small little marshmallows.
Counseling – We are here for you 24/7 – Here at WoodyBoater we have a 24/7 hotline to talk about your issues. It’s possible that your issue is that you don’t love your boat anymore? Be honest. We have some amazing sponsors here to help rekindle that fire in your belly. maybe its just that the spark is gone from the relationship? Dave Van ness has some new points for you? Remember this issue is not just about you. Its about all your partners in your relationship with your WoodyBoat!
You can always be like Troy and have multiple boats in the water to choose from. As Troy Said.
“It is kind of fun having multiple boats in the water, because you get to do some last gasping with each one.”
Well, I think that about covers it. Yup. I think I have just about covered this sensitive topic. And remember, you are never alone with your issue. maybe if we talk about it, we can all just enjoy this cold winter together.
