Seems real quiet here on c30 forum.

I'm slowly building up my parts and checklist for when the weather warms up a bit. So many things I want to do but lack the funds at present. Although the weather man is predicting close to 60 on Tuesday. Looks like a mental health day coming.

I was over to our boat yesterday. The creek is iced over (not solid) and the boat was covered with snow. It's been in the 20's for about a week. Melting snow piled up on the rudder post cap was dripping down into the hull from around that gasket. I have to invent some kind of cover for this and devise some way to divert water from the rear lazzarette drip channels from getting next to the post. I have some sheet plastic in place for the moment. On a sadder note, while poking around aft, it looked like my 1984 exhaust hose is telling me it wants to be replaced. Not looking forward to that gymnastic contortion event. :D

I am plotting and dreading spring. I have a ton to do including a haulout. Haul outs where I live are getting trickier and trickier because of scheduling. It is like some marinas don't really care to get your business.

My marina has a 1/2 off haul out discount in the spring so everyone wants to get booked during that time.

We're in the deep freeze here in inland New England, 7*F right now. Walked the dogs at 22*F last night and that felt warm!
Getting ready to repair my compression block, just waiting for the weather to warm up a bit. I have a couple good ceramic heaters so I think I can keep the inside of the boat warm. I have all of the parts necessary to make the SS screw-jack. This will be my first major repair on the boat so I hope all goes well.

OK....so we're all damn cold (and up here in BC we're also wet)....but what are people's big plans for next summer? Trip-wise I mean. Thinking about those plans is what keeps me going in January/February.

Sweet! C'mon up!! If you are clearing in at Bedwell, be spot-on with your protocols. I sat at the Poet's Cove Resort patio watching the Customs Dock show for many an hour last year....

I think everybody is hibernating right now. I've been super busy at work.
Waiting impatiently & biding my time till spring commissioning. Planning on circumnativating the Chesapeake Bay this spring & summer. Not ready for the round the world cruise yet, but gotta start somewhere!

One of our sailing club members is organizing a trailer sailor trip to Cape Lookout on the Outer Banks of North Carolina in July. Dang that's gonna be a fun trip!

Big winds last few days. Going to the boat once a week just to sit and check it out. No ice in the cove ( all salt ). All seems ok for now. Hoping for some 2-3 day overnights this season. Went to Hartford boat show last week, disappointed in the lack of sail power. Leaving for USVI in2 weeks, can't wait.
