Re: Too hot to sail...

A few years ago, I was in north qld [tropics]. I smelt what I thought was an electrical fire. I sniffed around the boat, stuck my head into lockers etc to no avail. The smell was strongest on the top of the hard dodger.

The temp was so hot and dry, the dust was heating up on deck and on top of the hard dodger. It was the same smell as the warning signs of an electrical fire.

Now that was a hot day [ and yes I was an idiot]
