A Quick Visit

Just before we headed out for Christmas travels, we stopped by Seas The Day to make sure everything was OK. Fortunately it was, so I used the opportunity to open up a few containers of Kanberra Gel (a natural anti-mildew treatment). The new winter cover looked great, so we sealed her up. We will repeat this check from time to time during the winter.

Seas The Day is all buttoned up.  Winterization was completed and the winter cover put in place in mid November.  Our role now is to check it from time to time.

So what does a sailor do during the winter?  Well we could travel south and go sailing (and we might still do that), but for now this sailor is going to brush up on his theoretical knowledge.

Here's a photo of my nightstand. 

Chapman's Piloting, The Annapolis Book of Seamanship, books on diesel engines, boat systems, navigation and nautical rules of the road... these should keep me busy for the next 3 months.

Oh, and in the glass?  That's Jefferson Reserve - Ocean Aged bourbon, of course.
