The Sea was Angry that Day My Friends...

I need to get back into the habit of frequent updates... once I let a week slip by before I know it not only have four weeks passed but several update worthy events are now "in the cue".

First some current news - we are moored in Annapolis MD nowadays and survived for our first storm, Hurricane Sandy. We spent the weekend before the storm battening down the hatches, stripping the decks, doubled all the dock lines, and even took down the dodger. For us it turned out to be a non-event, at the apartment the power flickered 4 times and the boat looked huge as it and the water rose to level the with the deck boards.

This weekend we planned to winterize for the first time. We did a bunch of research and looked over some handwritten instructions left onboard by the original owner. Over all it looked like a fair amount of work but nothing too complicated. We spent Saturday shopping but ran into a problem on Sunday - the sun was out, the wind was up... so we went sailing.

We had a great day on the water!! Even BJ was happy we took the boat out but admittedly First Mate BJ wasn't much help.
I think we'll winterize after Thanksgiving now...
