Il ne vaut mieux pas être mouillé.
....peter:): C'est un bon bateau Matrine... ils ne se mouilleront que s'ils pleuvent... bise....peter/pierresmile

Cripes...the outboard motor is big enough to power an ocean liner!
....peter:): i would guess that it is about 200 hp engine Ray... lot's of power....petersmile
They are not too noisy I hope...
....peter:): the new 4 stroke engines are quiet Larry... it;s the old 2 stoke engines that sound like a gad lawn mower... the jet skies on the other hand sound like giant mosquitoes....petersmile
I prefer lakes where motors are not allowed. So much more peaceful.
....peter:): i agree with you Michael but this lake is 6 miles long and it has lots of fisherman and leisure boats on it... there are many cottages on the islands of the lake as well....petersmile
Coucou Peter, une magnifique balade sur le lac, que du bonheur! Bise à  vous deux, bonne soirée tout en douceur!
....peter:): ce fut une belle journée pour prendre la famille pour une balade sur le lac Maria-Lina !! Bisous et passez un bon week-end....peter/pierresmile
A nice outing - even with the cold water!
....peter:): people like to be some of the fist boats on the lake Elizabeth....petersmile

Don't fall in then....good time to try the engine again after the wintersleep...
....peter:): the all have life jackets on but falling in would not be very comfortable Astrid....petersmile

It must be only just above freezing!
....peter:): i would say about 42*F about now Chris....petersmile
One of many more to come, I'm sure, Peter.
....peter:): they are slow to start out because it's still cold on the lake Ginnie... but it won't be long before they are out in full force....petersmile

They won't be swimming from the boat then, Peter
....peter:): not in 42*F water they won't Lisl... the ice had only been off the lake for about a week....petersmile

Sur le bord de la rive on est bien
JP
....peter:): quand l'eau est froide, il est judicieux de rester près de la rive JP!
amitiés....peter/pierresmile
The fear of falling in must be palpable Peter.
....peter:): i wouls agree when the water is that cold Chad... did you notice the mothers at the back watching their children....petersmile

Yes, I can imagine. Even now we've got temperatures yards 30 deg, our waters are probably at their coldest now. A trip on a boat seems like a good idea.
....peter:): at 30*C a ride out on the waters would be refreshing Alan....petersmile
mieux vaut ne pas tomber a l'eau!! amitiés
....peter:): quand l'eau est froide jean pierre... il vaut mieux ne pas tomber même si vous utilisez un gilet de sauvetage! amitiés....peter/pierresmile
they must have been happy just to get out on the thawed waters, Peter.
....peter:): people like to be some of the first boats on the water Ayush....petersmile
So falling in is not a good idea
....peter:): not a good idea in 42*f water even with a life jacket on Bill....petersmile
