Way too busy on Wednesday so getting an early start.

My wife and I recently celebrated our 25th anniversary (the silver anniversary). Since neither of us is into jewelry we renamed it our "carbon fiber anniversary" and bought two, slightly used OC 1 canoes. Here's a pic of the 2nd one that my wife and daughter bought yesterday. I'm in SF this week and can hardly wait to get home to give it a spin. 20' 8" and ~22 lbs of really fast fun.

Only a few boats left in the harbour, including Black Jack, recently returned after many years cruising the great lakes.
It's getting late in the season so my boat is high and dry but after the weather this weekend I'm a little jealous of the boats still in the water.

Alden 38' Challenger yawl Rockport Harbor
There was some good sailing in October and into early November. It was an odd season with flukey winds. I never tied a reef in all season. October was all or nothing, when it was all, I didn't even need a mainsail.

By the end of October, most of the anchorages were empty. Even popular Pulpit Harbor.

The second week of November, the hook awaits:

There is always Xmas wrapping to do this time of year.

Still, boats are coming out of the sheds.

LOUISA is an Italian yawl built in 1967. With skim ice on the harbor in the mornings, she's a long way from Luglio, Italy.

I should at least add a photo of our last sail this season after my apologetic sarcasm to @jon hansen . So here’s that last day of this season before haul out at the end of October with my good pal Bob. Pretty chilly at 50F and 5 - 15 Kts of blow, heading down wind.

The new motor, batteries, charge controller, etc are all in. Head hoses will be replaced on Monday along with the solar vent in the head. Kolibri will be in the water again shortly after that. I will post photos and details of the electric repower in early January.
