Winter has arrived

Theyre saying it will get down to 78f tomorrow.
With some wind, thaat means some real clothing.
I sleep best in winter.

Re: Winter has arrived

It was 14f, when I landed around 11 pm last night. I slept lousy.

Re: Winter has arrived

Water in dog's bowl in cockpit was frozen this morning when I moved the boat to her winter slip. Water in a dispenser over the galley did not freeze. It was a lovely cold day. Winterizing will continue over the coming weeks.... and then some winter projects.

pay attention... someone's life depends on it

Re: Winter has arrived

You folks are funny. I hauled out before the end of September. Temperatures were already dipping to near zero C back then.

Winter has long arrived up in Newfoundland. Heck, we’re 1/3rd into it.

Re: Winter has arrived

I normally don't do the engine or the waters systems until early December... but we are getting a cold snap in the teens and perhaps snow this Tuesday so I will do that on Monday. Hopefully it warms up and we get a calm day so I can remove the sails.

Have a great cruising season. Hope you’re able to report on how the summer treated your boat on the hard down there.

Re: Winter has arrived

Madness, just madness!

Cold starts about 65 and goes down to 60. After that if you knew it was going to be a regular thing and still stayed there that’s just madness

Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!
