Re: boat launch & snow

I extend my deepest sympathies to all you snowbound discontents. Sailing has been really nice this past week here in Oak Harbor, Wa. Life can be beautiful.

Re: boat launch & snow

I've heard this term "snow" that you Yankees use but I'm not familiar with it.
It was a little chilly here today, clear blue skys with temps in the mid seventies.

Whaaa whaa.... Here's what it looks like in our cruising grounds. Water starts just beyond the tall grass. Land mass in the distance (the Sleeping Giant) is 15 nm away. Ice and snow as far as the eye can see. Won't see open water for a while yet ...

Re: boat launch & snow

Yea, ya gotta hate this funny weather! had 3 days of 70+ weather, and to day 47! Nasty! I had to wear cotton gloves just to sand a little! Sure hope our real spring weather get's here soon ! ( all my shorts are clean and ready!) Got get back to 70 so I can gloss up my little bit of bright work! O well if it stays cold like this we will just go catch some tuna !

Re: boat launch & snow

What a difference 2 weeks makes. Snow melted, sun is shining, birds aren't singing yet, and ................boat is in the water.
