We live on a chain of lakes and have two boats that have to be winterized and stored. Our 12 foot fishing boat does not take up much space but we also have a 2003 22 foot pontoon that for the last four years we have stored here to save the storage fees. We started storing it ourselves the year I found out that they did NOT remove the battery in the winter . So now it sets in a little cubby hole along our driveway during the winter, well back out of the way. For the last few years my weapon of choice has been my 1974 Simplicity 7016H with a 42 inch snowblower for clearing the driveway, etc.
In February of 2011 after one of our many snowfalls, while removing the snow alongside that had been pulled off of our Pontoon boat cover I found the concrete block I had used as a step to get my butt up on the deck when we parked the boat in the fall. Fortunately it was going in reverse and not forward. I knew it was there and had swung wide around it on the first pass. But after finishing the second pass and backing back out to the driveway I got just a little too far back over to the right. Hurt me more than the blower because I knew it was there! Fairly easy to fix, got some welding practice time anyway.
OK who's next?
