I appreciate your input.
I have plenty of places to stay around here if /when / while
it gets real frosty around here.
re: snow, I'm surprised people don't just cover thier deck with hay and a black tarp under the plastic greenhouse. By March the boat would be heating it self.
re: Ice I'll be running bubblers.
My concern is turning more towards transiting the Cape Cod
Canal and Buzzards Bay this time of year, more than the
actual purchase of the boat. The days are getting short and
cold and that's a pretty good hike. My final scrutiny
of the boat this week end will be even more extensive.
Figuring out what I'll need to bring for extra safety equipment,
ground tackle, nav lights, impeller, fuel filter, on and on.
With time getting short it's all a bit un-settling.
I'm looking for a little breathing room to give it all a
dispassionate consideration. Sea trial is Sunday and a final
decision should be made soon after. GULP!
