What's the earliest?

Recommended Posts

Last weekend of April for me.  I was never slipped near my residence so never wanted to risk freezing of the motor or cabin fresh water systems.  I can't imagine having to trace a leak somewhere between the cabin and bilge in a split water line.  A couple extra weeks of boating isn't worth the risk to me...and I've seen plenty of snow on boats around the middle of April in the past.

last year I put in the first weekend of April,  the next day the wind shifted and blew Ice back into the marina area.  Lucky that no damage to boat, this year will be toward the end of April.
