She's on the hard now for the winter.

Well, in Barrie, Ontario, Canada, it freezes and the boats have to come out, much to my dismay. But the good thing is that I built an "A" frame to lower the mast and it went off without a hitch. The mast is 29feet and could have been awkward, but was not! I even did it all by myself, fortunately there were marina assistants nearby, just in case. She's all cleaned up, wrapped and ready for next year!

All systems with any kinds of liquid in them winterized against freezing?

Mine is out too. She's winterized and ready for hibernation. The duality of Great Lakes sailor's life can be maddening enough to turn me into a poet: The Fallout from Haul Out

Re: She's on the hard now for the winter.

I'm in Lower South Carolina. It will only frost 3 to 5 times here. very seldom a hard freeze. But I will have clean the bottom ever 3 to 4 weeks to keep the growth down. it makes the maintenance a pain in the bottom. HAHAHA in the "bottom"

Re: She's on the hard now for the winter.

I'm holding out. Frost this weekend but there may yet be another warm weekend to splash. Trailering a 25 footer has it's advantages. We can be in the water in about 1 1/2 hours from leaving the driveway. A few years ago, we sailed on November 14, two days before the city pulled the docks out. Tough part . . . I need to go in to mid thigh to launch and retrieve. So, another two weeks, if no good weather pattern emerges, it's a frame and baby blanket for the long cold sleep.

Re: She's on the hard now for the winter.

Last Oct I bought the T37, worked on it and others all year. Wasn't really in a hurry to splash because after an active 1000+ mile year I was content to take it easy. I had the bottom prepped for new barrier coat and other projects moving along when this Bermuda 40 fell into my lap. She needed rescue so I adopted her and have a new dream boat. But now, I'll be on the hard here another winter apparently. Maryland on the Bay. Last winter was a breeze on the Tartan. Had electric heat which other than condensation was fine. The Hinckley has an Espar diesel furnace which I'll be firing up soon...so I should be toasty with nice dry forced air heat. Not bad...so let it snow?

Re: She's on the hard now for the winter.

I also bought a Dickinson Chesapeake bulkhead mounted heater (diesel) I was going to install on the Tartan. The T37 is for sale now (anyone?) and I'm debating about the Dickinson. If a buyer would want the heater I'd include it with the Tartan, but am also thinking what a perfect set of options it would be on the Hinckley; I have a cruisaire and Espar. Add the dickinson and I'd be Arctic ready! It would be nice for chilly evenings on the hook...

Re: She's on the hard now for the winter.

I'm still holding out. May go out this weekend, but low of 0c overnight.

Last year we were out Thanksgiving weekend, great weather, so you never know. Typically pull late Oct. and tarp first of Nov.
