My boat wants to migrate south for winter

My boat wants to leave Alaska for places warmer.

Why...

A picture tells a thousand words.

This photo was taken just a few moments ago.
It's 18 out side, lake frozen for the winter.... It will melt in early may.

It's in the high 60's all along the California Coast.

Been raining here none stop for the past 2 weeks, but mid-upper 50s. Heading your way next week for my grandson'r birthday. I understand your pain brother, the reason I winter south now or as far south as the PNW.

Well crap! Work blocked me from your site saying it was a security risk! Feel your pain brother. Retire, then follow the sun south for winter. I will eventually want to go to southern Ca or Mexico for a winter....mmmm maybe even the delta, but you have to pay the bridge trolls before entering...

I took my boat south(Mexico) for 5 years and had a blast. However, I longed to be back in AK and brought it north in May/June. Variety is the spice of life. I highly recommend that when you come to a fork in the road you should take it.

Question...

Did you leave your boat in Mexico, or were you onboard full time?

I still work, but being a sloper I have half my life off so could be anywhere.

We're in the middle of a terrible cold front - it is forecast to get down to 54F tonight. BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.

But, at least it's 75 and sunny now. We'll break out the parkas later.

We live in a home in Nuevo Vallarta in the winter so I kept the boat in various marinas in Banderas Bay. Alaska Airlines flies here every day. Better start saving up the frequent flyer miles. I am a fountain of information if you want to fill in a few blanks.

Record lows forecast here, high 40's predicted low on Sun at sun-up, then back to highs of upper 70's on Tues.

Sorry, but it's is the time of year that we leave the A/C and enjoy outside for 6 months.

The solution to all boater's problems, except the financial ones, is retire!!! Now why can't I afford my boat anymore??? Guess I need to sell the land pad.

Have you always lived in Alaska or where before, Kevin?

For those who have long lived in such climates I guess they become somewhat use to them. Having never lived further north than North Carolina, we'd have extreme difficulty with it.

C'mon down, Kevin. We'll save you a slip.

Here's a shot from last week on the hook. Print and post on your wall for daily motivation.

I moved to Alaska 24 years ago today with my 7 year old son.

I came here seeking adventure.

The dream was to buy a floatplane, and a cabin in the woods, shoot a bear and go salmon fishing.

I did all that and then some. Alaska has been good to me.

To be honest, the delta seems like an Alaskans kind of place. Away from the big city, and the big cities ways of thinking.
