The last leaf clings to the bough and the forest floor is covered in gold. Time to go leaf kicking!

On the water, managed levels are down in preparation for the coming freeze. Boats are still out on the water though. What some people still have to learn, is passage ways are not the same. Plenty a prop has found what we call ‘hard water’ at this time of year as unknown rocks edge closer to the surface. Prop blades, drive shafts and lower units take a kicking in the fall.

Traditionally this is also the time of year where some sellers are persuaded it might be better to take a lower price rather than carry a property over the winter. There’s often a higher degree of flexibility on the selling side as winter closes in.

Take a look!
