I would say between now and when the boats start getting ready to go back in the water, that would be a good time to be taking a walk, making conversation. Some are closed up wrapped up and winterized right now, some are at it working all winter. By the time its back in the water time, most of the "winter work" is done, and the boat is ready ready. Prior to the boat being "water ready" would be a good time for you to showcase your work ethic and or desire to help a captain or owner out with the "to do list". These guys get overwhelmed with winter work and given the weather, rain, cold, etc sometimes an extra set of hands certainly help.
