The saddest thing I have seen in a while...



We pulled the boat yesterday for the season. Time to get her all wrapped up and start on the winter projects. Did our last sail in the low 40s and got her out before the lake begins to freeze.

Lets see those boats on the hard and we can all console each other.

I'd show you our boat on the hard but that would mean we'd have to skip our New Year's Eve cruise....

My sprite looks especially sad. This was before I finished sanding off 50 years of paint. I need to get a layer of epoxy primer on before it gets cold or she will be sitting bare until spring.

Re: The saddest thing I have seen in a while...

Yah Dale, we need to take a trip down south. I think we should get a sail on each boat that our cold Alaskan noses are rubbed in.

That Sprite is a sweet looking boat even with the pain removed. Nice lines sure make a difference.

Hugo I wish NY was on my work itinerary for the next couple months and I would take you up on it in a second. Never have been on the water on the right coast.

Heck, why not show all kinds of fall winter pics on here. Maybe even some of those smart people getting ready to head south will warm our frozen world with pics of the tropics. I can take it.
