Snow thrower vs Solar Panels

It just occurred to me... if I had my boat already solar panels would have costs as much as my snow thrower..... and a nice ocean view beats this for sure.....

Re: Snow thrower vs Solar Panels

But ! Think how bored, and warm you'd be with nothing to do but, basking in the sun and enjoying a highball in the cockpit after a stress-less sail ! I would feel your pain!!! We don't have that problem over here in the N.E. it's a balmy 15, with winds out of the East (must be a sea breeze). I just cannot believe the spray from the ocean is so light and fluffy! What, OOOHHHHH!!!!

Interesting,- I'm trying to imagine such a thing as a snow thrower.

Snow thrower vs Solar Panels

Is a snow thrower, similar to a snow blower?
What's snow and why does it need to be thrown / blown?

Re: Snow thrower vs Solar Panels

Hello Fishigan, great storm yesterday wasn't it. I personally love snow like that but could skip the sub-zero temperatures. Here's my son digging out the service door to my office. It only took two hours to drift 4' high.

I'm from Azo also.

Kalamazoo? I stayed there in '10 when I was working the pipeline spill in Marshall. I didn't see much of the town. I remember it being small though. Stayed in a hotel for a month so...

Re: Snow thrower vs Solar Panels

Not one more winter for me ! I 'm done with winter & plowing 12hrs for a snow . my boat will be ready way before summers end . My boat and i will be some place warm this coming winter, even if its not 100% perfect like i seem to want it. Dose anyone else seem to have this ( PERFECTION DISEASE ) like i have ? This boat should have been done before this winter hit period . Still freezing my tiller off in Toledo !

I need to move to the Sun Belt and find the perfect slip now! This Montana winter has been brutal. Why am I still living up here? Wife(sex), kids(fun) and fishing.

Re: Snow thrower vs Solar Panels

Move where its warm first and then worry about the boat. It is really a pleasant place to work on the boat, with the call of the gulls and the soft cool breezes, wafting across your sweating brow. And so many places like that, You can have a new one every day. Mac
