JimKat in Guntersville, Alabama

After attending the AGLCA Rendezvous at Joe Wheeler State Park, we cruised JimKat to Alred's Marina in Guntersville, AL.  Since there is a chance of freezing at this latitude, we did a full winterization of all water systems along with the normal seasonal changing of all filters and oils. She is in the water undercover from the weather.  In the 2015 summer season we cruised over 200 hrs or about 1550 miles mainly on the inland river system.
In December on our way to Florida, we stopped to check on JimKat and she was fine.  We plan to get her ready for summer cruising in late April but will probably not do any serious cruising until July.
