Year Round

I keep my boat at Placid Harbor just north of the Solomons bridge. We sail all year. Winterize freshwater system and head. Keep a small heater in engine compartment. If it gets below freezing for more than 24 hours I run down and winterize it. Simple to winterize, and a few gallons of anti-freeze is worth it for the ability to sail on those nice winter days.

"For the truth is that I already know as much about my fate as I need to know. The day will come when I will die. So the only matter of consequence before me is what I do with my allotted time. I can remain on shore, paralyzed with fear, or I can raise my sails and dip and soar with the breeze."
