Come on, you know who you are, boats out on the hard and wrapped up for the winter.  Playful Wink

Just to say that I'll be out on the rivers this Friday and Saturday. taking in the delights of empty rivers and deserted moorings.  Smile

Unless of course, the boat is frozen in, then you can have a laugh at me!  Blush

Steve, you can be a git at times! Smile  Playful

Guilty as charged...boat all wrapped up for winter.

You should be alright this weekend though...I'm told that temperatures are set to be a little higher than recently. Iceberg watch on hold.

I had a chilly and not very windy sail yesterday. Followed by a pub meal and a couple of pints.
An enjoyable day but I must concede that a bit more warmth and a SW breeze would have been welcome. But I suppose that I would not have had the whole place to myself then!!!

Ice is my only foe, but two more days afloat are still to be had. I love it...

I have got my "unashamed fair weather sailor" badge too. We put our boat to bed in December after a long season that started in early March. For me, the 3 months of downtime between now and March is a valuable period when I attend to the house and garden, which tend to take second priority during the boating season. This period is a bit like the fishing "close season" as it sharpens the appetite for the coming nine months on the water.

Having said that, I do envy you hardy folk who manage to cruise in Winter.

Cheers

Steve

We've just arrived back in not so sunny Essex after 7 days afloat, and by eck the last 2 were blimin cold!!

Thank heavens for a last minute log burner being installed.  Did feel very guilty however when a small freeman moored in front of us yesterday and all they had on board were 2 small oil filled rads brrrrr!
