I took a look back at last winter's sailing which was, because of a strong El Nino, my best winter sailing ever. I did get out this past December. Looking at the forecast I'll be surprised if I make it out in January. So February will be the goal.
Jim, my mechanic friend, has the outboard for the annual off-season tune-up. Tomorrow I'll do a little sanding and epoxy patching. February I'll paint the decks, brightwork and hull to be painted in April when it is a little warmer.
