Hauled yesterday, snowed today

That's it. The nail is in the coffin for this year.

I do all of my work in Fall so that the boat is ready to launch immediately in Spring.

It's going to be a long winter.

Yeah. It is already a harsh winter here in Southern California too. Mid-seventies today but cloudy. Tomorrow we may get some rain, whatever that is.

Re: Hauled yesterday, snowed today

Haul South, not haul out should be the plan.

The birds have got it right.

I used to push the season to the edge when we were on Lake Superior. Many a season Id be hauling and building our winter cover with snow coming down around me not fun .

The last two seasons in Lake Ontario weve been at a marina that hauls at the end of September using a crane. Each time Ive lamented coming out so early, but your story reminds me that its nice to get things done early.

Re: Hauled yesterday, snowed today

I share your pain. Every year since retirement I've wondered why I still live here..... in a place where the sailing season is only 4-5 months long.

True. But you ARE in California. I can drive across state in the time it takes commuters to get from Anaheim to 10. And 90% of the fruitcakes in USA live in SoCal. Not to start a fight, but I'd rather not live in CA.

The good news is:
You Can Change!
The fact that you haven't doesn't indicate you wont. For me change always starts with a thought.

All true. You just have to learn to embrace your inner fruitcake to live here.

You have a wonderful big brother/sister to my boat. I can't imagine only being able to use her for at best 6 months out of the year.

I'd bring her down south and spend more time here through the year while still keeping the rules for health care in mind. In the end I think you'd spend more time sailing even with travel back and forth.

My port of call may be Toronto but this Irwin will never see it. we're 27C/80F in Daytona Beach as I write. Wind is blowing 12-14 and tonight will be chilly going down to 67F/ 19-20C. Might have to wear long sleeves.

No fight. People are our biggest problem in the greater scheme of things. Too many people live here and too many who want to come here to ive. We value those who do not. Visiting is encouraged.

LOL. A friend moved from Texas to Eugene, OR. After that he showed up with a pony tail. What?? He explained it's easier to fit in.


I can't say that I know the cause of global warming. I can say I could handle an extra month of summer on the Great Lakes. And while I'm not spraying hairspray into the ozone, I would quietly be happy to trade Tuvalu and Miami for an eight month summer on the inland sea.

Sell the Irwin, and buy two Catalina 30s, one for Georgian Bay and one for San Padre. Never suffer again!
