    Bath tub.

    Edit: I've seen some Youtube videos where people are running their boats on the snow. Don't know if the motor/esc will remain cool enough.

    Whatever you do, don't take it out for a spin once the lake ice starts to melt/break apart; that's a good way to strand your boat atop ice you may not have seen. Been there, done that.

    didn't even think of that - would be brutal!

    I don't have a rescue boat yet so I'm not running till its warms enough to not freeze anything....um... important when I have to go in

    It's a fun story to tell well after the fact. During, however...I was like "oh boy."
