SD, yes, you are right, I do call if there is a named storm coming through, but I don't call if it is just a serious winter front or another big storm. I'm so far away from my boat that I don't even know most of the time when the boat is involved in a big storm, the boat gets weather there that I never even see here.
To the thread in general, I think people who get to see their boats all the time should feel lucky. Not all of us are in that position. In my own case that doesn't mean I have given up on the dream or anything like that, I am working diligently trying to make my dreams come true, that's a big part of the reason I can't spend time with my boat. If you get to see your boat all the time, or even better for you if you get to wake up on your boat every day, think to yourself tomorrow when you stand on deck how lucky you are, because there are a lot of us out here who can only imagine how our boats are doing, imagine what it must be like to wake up and step out on the deck to meet the day. I am not so fortunate as that.
My boat gets dirty. It gets bird crap all over it. The lines sometimes get loose and slap against the mast, I depend on people who are around to tighten them from time to time, I'm not able to drive 4 1/2 hours just to tighten lines. But dirt and bird crap doesn't harm my boat, it would get older with or without birds on it. It does make the boat look more neglected. I do make special trips down just to clean the boat up at least once a season not for my own good but just so other people can enjoy seeing it shining white for a while. And of course any time I get to spend on my boat means a lot to me, even if I am just cleaning it.
What are you pretending not to know ?
