Snotty weather photos

With Fall sailing upon us, I've been enjoying as much of this nice and dry end-of-season weather as possible. I'm taking off Thursday and Friday morning for a couple days away for the marina . . . the plan is to do an overnighter somewhere downwind, set sail in the morning to return to the work-drill again.

This got me thinking about the inevitable pre-winter preparation up here in the Northeast, followed by a few months, dreaming of doing it all over again next Spring. So, I compiled a few random photos, beginning with some that my daughter had taken and sent me of our trip to the Vineyard - which had some pretty wet conditions. They remind me of how nice it is to have a pilothouse, as a means of at least staying dry and warm.

My daughter's longtime companion, checking sailtrim:


And again during helm watch duty:


After so much of this, we decided to retreat to the pilothouse:



Upon finally reaching port, making lines and getting the ship in shape for a 5 day stay:





The rest of the week, fortunately for the crew, turned out to be very warm and sunny.

Here are a few photos from last week's sail on Narragansett Bay - perfect conditions:

TrueBlue,

Nice photos. I actually prefer a cloudy day for sailing -- even if that incudes rain. But I'm sure I'd like it even more with that pilothouse! I like the "sunroof" too. Too bad the pilothouse isn't gimballed, eh?

One thing I noticed in some of the photos, and previously in your "TB solo sailing" video is that the traveller for the mainsail seems to be set well to windward, so much so that the boom appears to have crossed over the centerline of the boat to the windward side. Is this just a perspective illusion? Or is this something you do only when motorsailing? Just curious...

Rick,
It wasn't really cold during that last Vineyard sailing trip (been doing it for 9 years now), just wet & raw - July 4th week can sometimes bring a mix of all kinds of weather - temps rarely go below the mid 70's though. Last week temps were pushing 90, this coming Thursday (1st week of October) temps are expected to be 80 degrees F.

John,
I know the traveler car should be towards leeward, but was experimenting with different positions - and checking response . . . never claimed to be a sailing guru (g) . . . shifted the position soon after. It wasn't a motorsailing thing, since I hadn't turned the diesel on all day, except for coming/going from the slip.

Things have been getting kind of stale around here lately, so please feel free to add your own pics to this thread.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Thanks TE, SH , and SD - Just sent in my Winter Storage Agreement with the marina this morning, with the check! I've been vacillating on whether to keep her wet this year - but decided to haul - scheduled for the week ending Nov. 10.

I've got some clingstone photos from years ago at home - would have to scan them though - pre-digital. Great diving area, the Striper spearfishing "rocks" there. Back in the late 70s, sailed around that "house on a rock" in a Shields . . . invisible rocks everywhere. Don't ask me how I know.

Since you asked, here's a recent pic of my daughter with her baby:
