Do I only wish I had a dodger and a cabin heater then I could have her in 2 more months besides the 6 to 7 now.
I'm not sure about this dinghy sailing in <35 degree F water your survival time when wet is to short in my opinion.

On the row out to the mooring can was more ice after the brief period of open water, but this ice was very thin and the dinghy went right through it.
Once on board it was a very nice January sail. My first ever in the midwest.
I kept on wondering, "Hey where is everybody? It's a nice day for a sail!"

|EJO||Hey a member of my YC just had their last sail last weekend and finally took the boat out. It is stange to see somebody sailing in mid winter here in the Mid-West with snow on shore in the back ground. So 2011 season finally ended for them in 2012 or was it just the first sail of the 2012 season here in snow country?|
