    ARGHH!! im going NUTS here, how are you guys passing the time?

    Long time no post!

    Here we are in january and its been 3 months since ive been on the water and atleast another 3-4 months until we can get back out

    Im going NUTS! passing the time by doing some trailer maintenance and some mods but this can only hold me over for so long. Supposed to get another "polar vortex" where temperatures wont get out of the teens/twenties for the next 3 weeks.

    Thinking about adding a speaker or two to my Doo's with some custom enclosures, just not sure how much i want to get into it.

    How are you guys passing the time?

    Day Dreaming ! Ha Ha, I want to go out to my garage and get started on some tuning ... but its below freezing with cold winds ... just cant seem to get going. I have been looking on line @ every equipment site to see which back protector I might buy. The IJSBA, now requires all riders to wear one. Good idea, I suppose ... but with the thickness of having it on i am sure will take some getting use too. O-Well back to day dreaming about warmer riding

    I keep 2 skis in my garage which is kept at 60 degrees. I work on them a little here and there, but just to be able to go out and touch them makes it a little better. I have TV out there too so I spend some time watching TV while Im out there.

    You are lucky to have heat in garage ! I would imagine in WI, its pretty cold otherwise.

    Wrenching and cleaning it now and then, watching some videos of riding it during the summer, and coming on here browsing the forum's help.

    Fixing stuff.

    I have the engine out of the RXP to replace the valves and I noticed a spot on the bottom of the hull was always wet even after being in the garage for a few months. I bought this RXP in July and I know the bottom of the hull had been repainted, after sanding the area there was some existing damage that had been repaired but had started to crack and let water into the hull cavity. A few days of fiberglass 101 and some black Gel Coat and it's fixed, now back to the engine.

    You guys need to take up some winter hobbies, such as skiing/snowboarding, hiking, biking, etc...
