Fall projects

14 November 2010 | Coeur d'Alene
By now, it's snowing in the mountains, and we've hauled the boats, including Sizzler, the 60-foot cold-molded daycruiser built by Hagadone Marine, pictured above in her off-season cradle and winter jacket. As captain of this boat, David noted that in her fourth season on the water Sizzler recorded the most sailing days yet. We also helped yank the turboed J90 "Eye Eye" after a #2 finish in the Commodore's Cup, and the North Idaho College sailing program's Colgate 26 "Study Aboard."

We've had some outstanding sailing this summer - but as the lake levels drop and the osprey leave town, it's time to plan our own migration.

We fly Spokane-Phoenix-Guaymas Nov. 29 and 30, and have a room reserved at the Marinaterra hotel while we commission Liberte. We're having Jesus at Marina Seca put a couple fresh coats of ABC#3 ablative bottom paint on and fix a scratch in the keel (hey, who put THAT there?). I've also got a replacement cutlass bearing ready to go on.

We plan a month in the Sea of Cortez, with Christmas at "The Hook" and New Year's in La Paz. See you out there!
