Well, here we are.Winter has set in (at least for most of us). Our boating time has been severely limited or maybe even eliminated until spring.What do we do?We dream of summers gone by and summers to come.We plan the boating projects for the season so our water rides will be ready to go for the next season.We talk about boats and boating and pontificate on things such as which one is better, inboards or outboards.This is a debate that has gone on for years and everyone seems to have their preference.Let’s take a look.

During the summer months, the TV on my boat hardly ever gets used but when winter rolls around, it is a staple of my time spent afloat.After all, a floating couch potato is much happier than one on land, right?Here are a few methods that …
