I'm not saying there's seven months we can't go in the water but it's with our schedule that we have to bring it in a bit early. It's a couple of hours up there so have to do it when we can.

I don't want hot water! I want it clean, clear, and cool!

Still don't understand this thread. Most guys change oil in the fall, not spring. Nice to get the contaminants out and fresh oil on the internals for storage. No special oil though.

You sink a snowmobile I fill w kerosene again works great displaces water. Drain and fire up works great.

The thread is about stock on shelves at stores.

It's amazing how fast these threads can go off track. One word or suggestion can send them into a totally different topic.

TeamTalk is still laser focused with relevant content and answers compared to the various MC Facebook groups. I'm always amazed by some of the FB questions/answers and pictures......bring on the popcorn LOL.
