2009 Season

Recommended Posts

With a lot of the Crew's season coming to an end, I am curious as to how many hours everyone was able to put on their boats. We hit 76 hours this season with most coming from weekend or week long trips away from home. We usually do lots of short 1-2 hour outings close to home, but this season we didn't have the time for those. All in all it was a good season and I have no complaints :)

Just under 60 for me, I don't take my boat everytime I go to the lake though. About half the time I'm on someone elses boat.

I put 12 hours on this year Cry.gif

But I have 2 excused for that: 1) We do a lot of drifting and swimming when we go out and 2) A hole in one exhaust manifold cut my season short by about 4 weeks. Oh well, there's always next year I guess.

About 125 for us. It was a pretty good year for only having the water above 80 for 5 days! Shocking.gif I have to winterize this weekend as I'm headed to Australia for 3 weeks so I guess the wetsuit isn't going to get much use this fall. Cry.gif

Lousy year. Only 17 hrs. so far, and I plan on getting out about 2 more hrs. to prepare for winterizing. Both daughters took on full time jobs this summer and it was really rainy. Vacation weather didn't cooperate either. On my other boat, the Winner, 12 hrs and I just winterized her this past weekend. Hopefully next year will be better and both daughter do not plan on working next summer. Maybe I won't either.

65 Hours

14 Trips (anywhere from 2 hours to 3 days on the water)

(the yard looks like hell, but we had a great summer!)

We were hoping for one more trip this fall, but may have run out of time (its about 40 degrees right now....)

We had an awesome first season in our new sunscape and really appreciate all of the knowledge gained from this site.

Good job Kingfish, we got about the same, maybe a little more. How did the boat perform?

80 for 5 days! Shocking.gif Are you kidding me!! I haven't been in 80 degree water even once! Sorry I lied, our local pool keeps is about 80. Whistling.gif

90hrs this year from May-Sept which is the most hrs of the 3 summers we have had the boat. Primarily all weekend and 3-4 day vacations (4 total) with some great early morning mid-week sessions also. Boat is at dealer for winterization and storage but already thinking about next spring and first trip of year!

We're lucky if our water hits 76 degrees!!! We put 90 hours on our new boat this year and about 5 hours on the old boat that we decided to keep.

Just over 90 for us. And we didn't use the boat at all in August or early Sept, doing trips with other boats.

About 60 hours, but the season is far from over. The water temperature is still around 78 degrees :)

Mr Archer..........................I have friends who come from Pa. to hang with us at Lake Anna. You (and anyone else who is interested) should too. Due to the nukes we ride all year! Yahoo.gif ( except we missed Feb. the past three seasons) My newest favorite T shirt says "What off season?" Dontknow.gif Our side of the lake is heated and private. We are truly blessed.

My crew's average is 350-400 hours per year. Injuries kept me down to around 50 hours so far this year, but it ain't over yet! No.gif

Lake Anna is a great lake. I skied there a couple of years ago. It was amazing. The water was very warm. I can see how you would ski all year 'round there.

I'm up in Maine, and expect maybe two more weeks of skiing if we are lucky. We've had 2 sub-freezing mornings this week though.

I got my boat at the start of September and have around 40 hours on it already. I doubt I'll break 50 hours this year, but you never know!

70 hrs. May to end of August. Not bad for rookie boaters with a 12-16 month old. We'll really have our hands full next season, wife is due in May, I'll be happy if we get 70 again next season!!

About 40 hours on the BU. But that is spent solely wakeboarding. We have another boat we use for cruising and parking. So total I think we did about 95 hours this year between two boats and a jet ski, so pretty good summer. We have a 15 month old and he loves the boats. But he cries when I slip out the back to wakeboard because he's still not sure what the heck I'm doing back there. Then again, neither am I. :)
