Many, as in almost all, northern boat owners haul out their boat during the winter.

I know you have your opinion, but you should spend more time reading and increase your comprehension of such. He didn't haul the boat for the problem.

If you would have read more carefully, he knew the haul out was coming (original post). Almost like he had planned to have the boat hauled for winter.

If you would have read a few post down from the original, he states he is in Canada. Another good time to reason out, the OP is hauling for the winter.

Simple deduction exercise........

I know, these points can be missed by the best reader in the world, but being on a forum, everyone should spend more time comprehending what they are reading, and not forming opinions about the situation. Read first, comprehend, then form an opinion.
