Winter setting in

With the cold winter starting to set in for another season on the hard, a reflection of the summer comes to mind of where, what, who come to mind.
What happened over the last sailing season, Ron and Lauren joined us this year in their Catalina 25 called Y-Knot also another younger fella Darrin bought in with his Annapolis 26 and had lots of questions about sailing and handling, rigging and a day sail with him started him on the right track .

Boats were repaired and tuned up, furlers were installed on a few this year and three were rebuilt on the dock. The crew at the marina is second to none, full of ideas on how to, and then do show you how its done.
Some upgrades at the marina were also done, Gary and I did some electrical outlets and rewired the pumpout dock along with power to the west section which has not been working for the last year.
we had a great turnout  on wednesday night rounding the poles with an average of four boats each week but the party always had at least 35 people joining in the fun and burgers, with happy hour being stretched to hours.
Projects are being planned out for the winter months which will be wiring upgrades and looking at a hard top dodger and an arch for the solar panels and a possible wind generator.
