Re: And so ends another season...

25 knots with gusts to 50 predicted for tomorrow ( maybe not so far south as you Denise) so we hauled her out last night to be safe. This summer we docked our boat at a riverfront bar thats very close to our house and very cheap, but its completely unprotected. Last weekend was rough with 15- 20 knot wind across the docks.

The water, and the boat never seem more appealing to me than on that last ride when I have to make that turn for the ramp. I just want to turn and head back out!

Re: And so ends another season...

Worth mentioning too - last year on this date we were frantically hauling all the boats out of the boat yard and ships of every shape and size were heading up the Hudson.

Re: And so ends another season...

Boat's winterized but still wet. Coming out to do more "final" outfitting. Can't wait to retire and only need to do short hauls as maintenance or weather dictate. They look so damn big out of the water when you need to wax or do the bottom. And so damn small out in the ocean. Oh well.

We're not hauling until 11/16 but I'm working so much OT right now I'm not sure it matters.

Re: And so ends another season...

Really don't have to take her out this year but would really like a cheep place to keep her over the winter. Found a place 1.5 miles from the house for $240.00 a month, fresh water w/electric. What do you think?

Magical times on the Bay.

We went to Onancock 2 weeks ago with Godspeed (replica from Jamestown) hot on our heels. We'll be out again this Sunday - should be nice! We don't haul until after the Philly Marathon on 17 November.

Just the end of summer season and the official start to winter sailing!
This WE will move from summer mooring to our winter dock in Boston harbor
Will empty the boat and remove the light sails and bathings suits and switch to heavy Dacron sails and bring lots of sweaters , warm coats and gloves
Love our winter sails !

Re: And so ends another season...

I was hauled yesterday


It gave me an opportunity to see how my zincs held up since early April;

It looks like I was cutting it close... This, despite the fact that I unplug the boat from shore power 98% of the time.

I was also eager to see the damage done to the lead keel by the mis-charted rock in the Sakonnet River;






It doesn't look too bad. I'll probably just fair it with a file (or a torch) and repaint...

I can't wait until April 2014

Re: And so ends another season...

E, I don't see a line is your keel encapsulated like on my boat? 4 years on the barrier coat here.. no problems except the bow being scraped by mooring chain.
