Anyone in the water yet?

Booked my launch date ..... next Tues, Apr. 21

Was up last weekend to pull off the tarp.... 4 powerboats in the water, although they are the ones prepped and launched 100% by the marina . This weekend will be wax on / wax off ala Maine Sail techniques and then hit the water Tues.

Although the docks are open there was large area of ice that was blown down the bay by the wind.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Interesting question,- I didn't get it at first because of it's regional meaning. Many of us only haul out for a few days once every few years!

I wish. We still have ice and snow at our end. Another 3 weeks for sure.

Yeah, well, you're not welcome in this section of the forum, Mr. WeOnlyHaulOutOnceEveryFewYears!

I plan to take the tarps off this weekend and do some minor maintainence (replace swingkeel wire, oil teak, wax hullsides). Then I'll be ready to go!

It was 22 yestertay AM in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Its so cold in Muskegon at the boat that the hour ride home with full heat on didn't do it. I was still shaking when I stepped into the shower. Ice still on the lakes in Travers City and the glacier pushed up behind the transom finally melted last week. In Feb. you could step onto the boat from the ice pile. Tarps will not come off for at least two or three weeks.

Of course you're more than welcome to step in and melt the ice anytime

Pictures of the sunny south would always help as well.

I wish it was 22 here, only supposed to hit 15 on Sat., but that should be warm enough to get the waxing done......
