October 10, 2010 Winterization - 264 Days To Go

As the weather is getting colder, boating activities turn from enjoyment to work!  Bob is working on winterizing the water systems and generator.  Lynda is putting all the boat linens in space bags and will take home all items that might freeze.  We have found over the years that storing the clean linens on the boat for the winter solves the problem of where to store everything at home!  During the week, Bob and his friend Vinnie will move the boat from our summer dock in Mystic, CT down Long Island Sound, up the Connecticut River for winter storage in Portland, CT.  Portland is only about 15 minutes from our home and we decided that it would be more convenient for getting all our "stuff" on board in the spring in preparation of leaving on our Loop adventure.  So we are signing off for now as our season is drawing to a close.  Be sure to check back in the Spring and join us as our adventure begins!
