Difficult to say which activity is the most enjoyable. All ideas are good. Just depends on the mood.

I take every peice of salty damp linnen and hang it in the rigging to let the rain rinse it. Catch as much fresh water as I can for my tank. I make soup, drink booze, and look over at land contiplating going ashore till I fall asleep.

Wondering where you - and others for that matter - get (that many) movies there? I.e., brought from home (DVDs, torrents, etc.), or there are some local sources like movie rentals, local TV, acceptable access to internet/wi-fi?
Just before we left this summer we bought a 2 TB hard drive and filled it with movies and tv shows. It's nice and compact, and has more viewing hours than we'l probably ever go through on our trip. (We also have one of those big folders of dvds, but that doesn't come out too often)

Since Maine is my paradise and after a week of zero and sub zero weather it is raining like mad, almost 50 degrees, I have to say check the boat's winter cover because it is supposed to blow 50 S tonight!

And what are you talking about, you're going to have a tv on your boat too. It's already been decided.

But now I'm curious to hear about YOUR days as a young man! (spare some of the details though)

Jessica
Back then, about the same time John Paul Jones joined the Navy, we didn't have PCs, Cellular phones, I-Pads, etc... Consequently, on those rainy days, when I was your age, and living ashore, my loving spouse and I would go bowling, go to an indoor archery range, then come home, clean up, go to a great restaurant/nite-club, have a wonderful dinner and dance the night away, often getting home at 2 a.m. or later.

If it snowed, we frequently would go sledding, tried skiing once, but in the mid-Atlantic region near Baltimore, the slopes were mainly glare ice and you were easily injured.

If the weather wasn't too cold, but drizzling rain, scuba diving wasn't out of the question, wearing a full wet suit and diving near the old Chesapeake Bay Bridge span where monster oysters were found among the bridge pilings. Some of the oysters were so big you had to cut them into quarters in order to slurp them with hot sauce.

Prior to getting married, well, I won't elaborate on those days, but damned, they were sure a lot of fun - especially if it was raining.

Cheers,

Gary
