A late admission of Winter

Well went down to the dock yesterday and after a minutes hesitation thinking just maybe I could squeeze another sail in I took a deep breath exhaled and proceeded to bag the jib and cut off the main....As the jib went in it was issuing orders about sail lofts. Solo sailors probably have more frequent experience with inanimate insensate objects speaking sensate intelligent things.... Well it was time. So I took the boom off, stripped most of the running rigging, and took the boom over to the shop to spray sometime this winter.
Tomorrow Ill remove the rudder and outboard and see about rigging up a simple cockpit cover to avoid shoveling snow this year

remind me I said this guys ...hell it'll be warming up in no time.....right?????

Before you know it spring will be here! (We pray). In the meantime Brad (Bene505) and I will be sailing through the winter (he more often). Look in the "Destinations" section for Long Island, he has a thread. Get your long undies and get up to the North Shore!

The water is far too hard here in the Great Lakes during winter for any sailing, so I feel your pain, but I'm not so optimistic that it'll be warming up soon!
