Hopefully the plastic strainer is the only damage.
We have ours on a lift at the marina. It has always made it through the winters here okay. Last fall it was running a little rough so I'll probably need to pull it out and tune it up. I like to pull it out in the spring and give it a good cleaning anyway.
I understand what you mean about being out on the boat. I have spent a few nights out on the pontoon. Anymore we seem to only use it to run our jug lines and an occasional cruise. Sometimes family members will take it out and find a sandy beach to picnic and swim with the kids.
Weather here has been unusually warm, highs in the 80's. It will be turning cooler with a high today in the mid 70's, high 60's tomorrow and back to mid 70's friday, then 60's again on sunday.
Man, I'm dizzy after that!
