Just Hangin' Out
We started the day by visiting the storage to pick up the framing, and loading it into the car. The plan was to (1) remove any remaining important things from the boat....freezables, clothing, paper contents, and then (2) we would frame the boat so that we could get the cover on at a later time. Well, we, did all that stuff, and then the plan changed, because it was supposed to rain today (which it certainly is doing as I write this). Once the dodger and enclosure were removed, the cockpit was exposed to the elements, and we don't like that. So, we took the time to re-visit the storage place in order to pick up the winter cover (it's a heavy sucker). We arrived back at the boat, and started to sort things out. Because the cover weighs so much, we had it altered last year into two pieces. We then unroll the thing and figure out which is the fore piece and which is the aft piece (always fun). Once we got that done and got the thing up onto the boat, My Sweetie spent the remaining 5 hours adjusting, tugging, taping, tying, oh, and swearing I am sure (although I didn't exactly hear any of it).
The long and short of it was that the boat is snug for the winter. There are a couple of minor things to take care of (yeah right), but the biggest tasks are complete.
I missed my bloggie friends, although, if I had thought of it, I should have brought the laptop...there's wireless at the marina....duh!
