True. After 44 years of marriage, that's called a date.

And after that I'll tell the story about the skipper, who after the boat was knocked down, went down to see if any water was in the bilges. Finding some he put some on his finger and tasted it to see if it was salt water from outside or fresh water from the tank. It was salty. Very quickly he realized, actually there is a source of salt water in the boat also

All this talk about winterizing is giving me a headache. Today, the cushions are coming out for home storage, maybe batteries (I'll see how I'm feeling) and THINKING about blowing out the waterlines, etc.

I don't own a "real" compressor and don't want to spend a ton of money. Do y'all think this would work? Based on the specs, I could actually pick it up and move it around as needed: 3 gal. 1/3 HP 100 PSI Oilless Pancake Air Compressor

Fortunately, HF is only about 4 miles from me...

Looks good. Do you already have a 12v one you take with you traveling? You could use it or pick up a decent one of those and have it serve both purposes.

If you pull the batteries you need a strap of some sort to lift and carry them, there are no handles on them.
