What can i get done in the winter?

So i have a 16' sailboat. right now it has 3 holes in it. i sailed it all last season. i grinded down these 3 holes. to patch them so they don't leak a drop. Also the trailer needs work. im just wondering what can i get done in this cold weather.

Could start out by cleaning sails,Then some sewing repairs. anything that comes off can be done inside, Varnish or paint, Build small add on projects, & then there is always Dreaming!--Dale

All the work on the trailer. Anything with paint or epoxy will be temperature dependant. All splicing and or mounting new hardware can be done in the winter.

It's always a bad idea to let your wife know you know how to use the wash machine.

I'm doing alot of reading and dreaming this winter. My boat is still in the water but we have had an unusual high sitting on us killing the wind.

I plan on some interior fixes/upgrades after I haul her. Wood work for now but paint and epxoy in the spring after it warms up.
