Decorated up "Big Fish" my 1965 Cruisers Inc 20' Seacamper for the annual Parade of Lights on Eagle Mountain Lake in Fort Worth , Texas. Had a couple of long rods with inflatable fish attached and a Santa coming out the hatch. My friend Raymond and I decorated her and braved the cold 45 and windy, thats cold for us! We cruised south with the wind then turned back north into 3 to 4 foot swells, Bug Fish was pitched around in the dark but held together and did not take on any extra water even though she took a pounding for 10 minutes.

Followed this sail boat all evening.

Lots of big boats too!

We about froze, I know all you guys up north are laughing but when I signed up for this the forecast was 70 with a 6mph wind! At least we get to use these boats almost year round.

Great Pics.
We have a boat parade like that where I live. But it is in July.
Of course the temps and wind are about the same as you had(lol)
We have had about 16" of snow here already and the ten day forecast shows
more of the same.
Happy and safe Holidays to all.
Karl.
