Very nice...err yes tough dealing with miserable November sailing
here in SE NY (Long Island Sound) especially with full crew of boat owners
(with boats laid up for season). On water full days Sat. and Sunday did'nt have to touch the helm/trim the sails except for returning to slip.

Hey,

I did my last sail of season last Sunday (Nov 8). The weather was great - sunny, around 55-58F, decent breeze of 6-10 kts. I was on the water for about 3 hours and I saw lots of fisherman but only 1 sailboat. I recorded a little video, maybe I'll post it later.

Monday I moved the boat from my mooring to a slip where the boat will winter. She is all tied up, but I need to change the oil and filter, and then winterize the boat.

Hey Barry. I went down the boat today and began fitting a boom tent for the winter. Haven't used one before but figure it is nice to minimize any snow in the cockpit. Am toying moving the boat to winter quarters also. This cold front moving in is supposed to effect us for two to three weeks I imagine means the balmy days in Nov are to bee no more....ah well. This too shall pass. Now to pray for a March thaw!

Nice weather today, I planted a pear tree before I went to work today. (wife got a "good deal" end of season)

Seems like there are a few more good days left.

Paul,

Did you get married since we had lunch together after picking up Giuletta's anchor that time? Congratulations!

Brad,
Was planing to be on the water Saturday, will join you if can coordinate timing.
(Opening day for trap shooting also) thinking your boat will be out of range, this year! ;-)

Hoping to sail thru Thanksgiving weekend Manhasset bay, Port Washington.
All welcome.

No, I was separated for 10 years, she lost her job so we have temporarily moved back in together for financial reasons. Hoping to be out this winter, but it is looking more and more like spring. Really should not call her the wife, but it get complicated otherwise... But I do enjoy spending more time with the kids. Youngest is 16 now, so I get to teach him to drive. He is the last one at home. Well the son at Cornell will likely spend summers back at home, but it sounds like he may have other plans!
