No ice yet, but -5 or so with a stiff NE wind. Recent gusts at the island airport in the high 30s. East winds are nasty here, with the wind coming down the waterfront.
I got the shrink wrap on last week, and went around today tying the frame legs together and checking it over. Overall it’s a D grade job. Sarah and I did it all from the deck, which was a very bad idea. We messed up the belly straps. And the film I bought was low quality. Burned a few big holes. But I think it’ll hold together for the winter.
Heat is great, hot water plentiful. I had no problem filling my water tank this week using the permanent hose laid underwater from the dock house to the dock close by. It’s a comfortable home. I love the motion and connection to the water and weather. 123 hours on the furnace after 21 days of operation.
For the next few weeks I’m cocooning with family. There’s a pandemic raging around us, and the city is on lockdown. So I’m visiting the boat daily, but not living aboard.
