A huge thanks to fellow Woody Boater and local pal Dave Godwin for capturing the Boatress and I out for a warm short ride in Sweet Pea. One more reason on the list of reasons to own more that one boat. A large enough boat so you can use a small heater and still enjoy the slow and gentle movement of the water.
We keep a heat lamp in Sweet Peas engine area, and start her daily to run a bit so we can take advantage of year around boating here in Virginia. Smart? I don’t know. But around here there are tons of old boats in the water that work year around as much as possible.
Since we have been doing this, the winters go quicker, and the break and reminder of of the love of the water is always there. I guess in a way, I would highly recommend a perfect day boat, and a not so perfect day boat. Either way. Its boating!
