How I spent my (Cold) Weekend

It was very cold here again this weekend, but the boat is on the water.

So I did the feeding of the sails.........




While my teenage daughters did the cranking.........



And cranking..........



Julie did the supervising........



After the sails were up we installed the dodger and bimini.

Finally we heard that Xort was in the market for a new boat,
so we stopped by this little beauty to take a look for him.

Do you see Julie and Samantha standing next to the keel bulb?



She is a Nelson Marek 70 according to the skipper.



A close up of my Girl's by the keel.



Xort said he was looking for something that might be more suitable for liveaboard ability. He said he needs more cabin space, so he took a pass on this one.


And that is how I spent my weekend.
We are now ready for sailing if the weather ever allows it.
