Nice Weather

This is Unreal

The weather is just astonishing for Upstate New York. Warm, sunny and even when it did decide to rain it was pleasurable. Now if the weather could be like this every year this would be the place to be. I do love it here but the winters are usually so long and very bitter with no sun for weeks.

Jon and I worked on getting the cover on this weekend, which went relatively well considering it was our first time doing it. Then we had to decide what to bring home with us this trip. We decided to just pack as much as we could and fill up next week also.

We filled the bilge with a new product that would eat away the 30 years of “god only knows what is in there stuff”, it is 100% biodegradable so we thought we would give it a try. I have decided to do my own sewing for the boat so started to bring the cushions and other things that I will attempt to either fix or replace on the boat. I will post photos as I do them (who knows maybe I will get really good and make some money at this…..)

Jon has started pulling lots of stuff off the boat so that he can get some of the tanks removed and rework the wiring at the same time, the boat will be a true mess over the winter but well worth it.

Jon and I took turns going out Sunday on an 18ft cat in the bay with Tom one of the other sailors at the marina. It was a lot of fun and great weather for it. I never realized how fast you could cruise on one of them. Thanks Tom for the great treat…..

Once again we went to Pleasant beach inn for dinner and it was great, Thanks to”H”.

Next Saturday the Little Sodus Inn is having a Halloween Party so a few of us are heading there for some amusement. Stop in and say hello if you’re in the area.

I am a Fairpoint wannabe and am living vicariously through your blog. I am currently reading "Know Your Boat : The Guide to Everything That Makes Your Boat Work" by David Kroenke. It is a great book for those, like me, that are slightly intimidated by all of the systems found on a vessel of your size.

I think we have that book! We find that if you pull one thing apart or out of the boat at a time and you research everything along the way you get to know the systems and your boat, you have to start somewhere and its all up hill leaning from there. We just started pulling everything out of the boat to either check it,fix it or replace it. Thanks for the email we love to see that people are interested.
