Hey, where did the water go?

Sitting on the dock in Delaware City.

Strong North West winds blew the water outta the bay.

Bottom job appears to be holding up well!

Lost a few more inches after this.

The balls normally just touch the water.

Re: Hey, where did the water go?

Heard it was pretty windy out there! Do you get frozen in at that spot slash do you break up the ice around the boat at all?

Better shot.

Nope, we freeze in, as do the glass boats.

1/4" steel hull so we sleep sound.

Re: Hey, where did the water go?

That is an interesting development.

Your boat looks nice from this angle. Do you have a link to other photos showing the boat? I am not familiar with the design and would like to see (I like steel boats).

This is a 44' LOD Alan Pape "Steel Maid". Most were ketch rigged. The builder had Pape redo this one as a cutter.

Here she is in St. Pierre.
