Hi Marc - I also wanted to say thank you for the beautiful photos. I know the following is very much an "in the weeds" comment but I wanted to call to your attention that on 08-Apr-2024 you will be in the path of a total solar eclipse. I hope you get a chance to enjoy it. https://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/SEgoogle/SEgoogle2001/SE2024Apr08Tgoogle.html
Mark,Word of caution about outboards and sub freezing temps. Keep the lower unit of the outboard submerged and it won’t be damaged. Alternatively, it looks like you have a boat lift. Make sure the outboard is tilted completely down to drain or the water in it won’t drain. Tilted outboards hold water and will freeze and crack. I have to keep a boat in the water until the lake nearly freezes solid. Our bays an inlets freeze, but my island “Harbour” doesn’t until the rest of the lake freezes. This year we may seal up a month early with this cold snap, if we keep getting cold nights with no wind. Once it has sealed, it won’t reopen until May.Tony

Along the same lines of the eclipse one can sign up for an e-mail of when the space station flies overhead. if you have not seen it, it is one of the nice things to see in the night sky. We have been watching it since I was a project engineer on one of the sub systems.https://spotthestation.nasa.gov/
