Batteries are all topped up engines started first click. Just waiting for a nice morning next week. I might be able to finish sanding, polishing, and waxing the boat. Lots off work could be done before we go in the water.

Re: Friday Launch Canceled

Down at National YC, I noticed it howled in the 40 knot range most of the morning, and then rapidly died after lunch. The lake was near flat by 1600h. But it was prudent to cancel...big tour boats were being set adrift in the harbour, a nasty business.

Perfect day for lift in. 12 klm of wind. It's a little cold at 2c but it should be 14c. By noon.
