Michael: WOW! -10C?? It's not even January.
Do you have a well insulated hull
at that temp? What did you do to prepare for the REAL winters where you are aside from getting a ton of BTUs? Anything special?
PS: I am in brackish - Long Island Sound water
Kai Nui: You can fee free to mention our discussion at will. The series (in general) is great, and it would be interesting to share with others.
Lightfin: When we complete this winter's re-fit, the boat will be in the Keys/Miami/Bahamas area from about this time of year until April/May. Then, back up to the North East again for summer charters.
Wheels: Ha ha ha... 27C?? Beautiful! I visited AU once about this time of year, and what a nice change. NZ has got to be great this time of year. Hope to make it there sometime. It's legendary to us as a paradise of nature.
Surpisingly, it's a toasty 85-90 degrees F here in the cabin
. This wood stove
really puts out the heat. We sit around in t shirts and socks inside. Plenty warm. Just don't open the companionway!
Since I see so many pictures of the beautiful weather
in the lower lattitudes, I thought it would be fun to post a few pictures of snow since winter is just starting up for us.
