Buzz kill question...

I was wondering when folks are planning to haul out for the season.

I usually haul between Thanksgiving and mid December.

I want to get a few more sails in, but need to start planning to winterize as well.

What are other folks planning?

Sorry to be a buzz kill.

Mid,

Beginning of November for me. THe other day a fellow sailor accused us of being "fair weather" sailors... guilty as charged. If there are a few days of sun and warmth left in the season, I don't mind devoting them to pulling the tarp over her, or coolant changes, or engine oil changes, or transmission oil changes, etc - all done from the hardstand on that warm Nov day (when ever that is?)

I usually leave the boat in year round for those occasional nice days over the winter. Last year was the first time I left the boat "sail ready", only needing to re-winterize the engine when finished, about a 5 minute process. Needless to say I didn't get to use the boat much after December 31st

This year though I'm pulling the boat, probably sometime mid December depending on what the marina says. I plan to pull the engine and take it home for a minor overhaul, as well as drop the rudder for some repair. While the engine is out I hope to insulate the "engine room".

Whose up for a Thanksgiving Rendezvous that Friday or Saturday?

I'm trying to do alternate winters in and out. This year is an "in" year. Last year I hauled out the weekend before Thanksgiving.

I love the idea but it would be harder convincing my wife, especially with no safe means of heating the boat away from shore power.

We stay in the water year-round, so "theoretically" could go sailing any time. In practice, we turn the boat around, tarp over, and put up the cockpit enclosure in early November, which means it would take the better part of a day to get ready to go sailing - ain't gonna happen, and we're kinda fair-weather folks like Wayne. We have, however, been known to do dinghy adventures on New Year's Day if the weather permits.

Ah yes, but the awesomeness the Chesapeake has to offer is worth the price of admission

Slow,

Do you like to fill the raw water jacket with the "pink stuff" good to -50° F (?) or do you go for the "purple stuff" and sleep better at night?

Auspicious is to be hauled Monday 18 October for bottom paint and some other minor "on the hard" work. We relaunch Friday 22 October. 1 November (ish) I head South, offshore, to the BVI.

Sometime in mid-December I'll head back with the intent of being back in Annapolis for Christmas. Boat stays in the water all winter and we sail every chance we get.

Thanksgiving sounds good. Anyone else up for Little Harbor, Jost Van Dyke?
