hey folks! I'm a new boat owner and will be keeping her at Port Royale on a dry stack. Would love to meet more yamaha owners once weather gets good and learn the ropes! When do people usually start heading back to the lake?
Congratulations. Nice looking boat.

Port Royale is pretty nice and conveniently located. The lake is basically two sections. You are at the very top of the south section which is nice. You can get down to the spots if you want to meet up with people or go to Margaritaville. The north half of the lake is a lot calmer. We like 2 mile and 6 mile areas which is just south of Port Royale.

I agree with @Wisefam22 on Apr/May but you might get a few nice days before that.

Welcome, I have my Yamaha winterized for now, but will return to my slip at Port Royale probably 1st week in April. Last year, I had to wash the pollen off boat often in April. I since have invested in a cover. I will keep you posted when I’m back on the lake.

please do! Silly question, where does one put the cover when you go out boating? Does it fold and put it under a seat somewhere? I'll have mine on the dry stack but not sure about the cover situation.

The cover will roll up and can be stored on boat. I would choose what works best for you. For me, after April I do not plan on using cover for rest of season with one exception; Unless a bad storm comes through. I have additional storage on dock but if I were to store a cover on the boat it would be the ski locker. Hope that helps.

Same here! March is when I usually go a couple of times on my own without the family and it’s so peaceful out there 😂

Depending on what week in April my kids have their spring break is usually our first launch of the season. Most years the water temp is fairly cold yet tolerable. And by tolerable I mean I tolerate watching my kids swim and lips turn blue from inside the boat lol!

Anyone on here have a new 242x? Saw someone in a blue one outside Sunset/Landshark without the bimini top last Sunday.
