I agree with you all, its major suckage to be taking the sails
down and all that. We took the masts down the last week of October, then came out the week end after. So now she's sitting all shrink wrapped n cold. Its a hell of a way to spend 6 months.
Part of that 6 months is because the insurance
companies seem to think the navigation
season should be that long. Why?
I spent one winter living aboard
and was still out sailing in January. As a matter of fact we crashed the Port Credit Yacht Club new years eve ball by sailing up to the visitors dock
at 1am. Freaked the daylights out of them.
I've been out in snow storms, and below freezing weather
, always made it back ok and then enjoyed the hot rum
maybe we should be telling the insurance
people to wake up n smell the coffee. Isn't this global warming thing going to increase the seasons too?
