Sailed yesterday. Conditions were below my normal threshold, but desperate times call for desperate measures. Sailed off the west side of the dock into a west breeze. Out on the Sound, breeze was gentle, sea calm, I almost saw the sun. Smoked a Cohiba. Kept adding clothes. Docked well enough too, backing in sniglehanded without scraping the dock or hitting the schooner astern is challenging When I got home and kissed my loving wife, she said yuck. Not the reaction I was hoping for, but I guess she doesn't like cigars.

Well, there's 4 inches of ice out on the "fairway" to the little harbor's entrance. So I emailed the insurance company and am now in official in-water layup. (It's cheaper that way.) I gave them March 10th as the date to revert back, but if the ice clears earlier than that I'll call them up and change our status back ahead of time.

It was a great fall and winter. Now I have a long list of project to do while the boat is laid-up. Can't wait to sail again.

Regards,
Brad

What's this "layup" stuff? My insurance company never mentioned it. I've got a powerboat that I use 2 weeks a year and they make me pay for 52 weeks. Ditto for the sailboat, but I use it 7 months out of 12. Is my insurance company that different than others?

Talk with Markel American Insurance Company 262-548-9880.

They'll explain it to you. They don't discriminate between layup on land or tied to the dock. You just can't use your boat before your self-proclaimed lay-up period ends, unless you contact them to end the lay-up early. Which I may do. You can go on her and work on her, IIRC, she just needs to be tied to the dock.

Regards,
Brad

Peter,

I too am ready to go out again!! Layup ends March 10th. I may extend/shorten since I'm busy that first weekend, unless you want to take her out.

All -- Below is a picture that Hugo took back in January. I think this was my last sail of the year. It's a great picture. (Yes, I cross posted it in the "show us your sunset" thread. It belongs here too.)

If you want to make a screen saver or something from it, the uncropped version is here.

Regards,
Brad
