Its getting lonely out here...

Ko Barrett: Chilly and overcast
I came out last evening to find that more boats had been hauled from F dock and my view is now unobstructed out to the bay, with the exception of the many, many seagulls that litter the dock each morning. And I mean litter the dock. Fortunately the weather is too cold for bare feet.
I turned on the heater, closed up the cabin and retreated to Skipper's Pier where I was pleasantly surprised to learn that they serve twenty-five cent oysters on the half shell every Tuesday night from October through April. Along with a reduced price bottle of domestic beer, I had a heaping plate of oysters with cocktail sauce and horseradish for a total of five dollars.
The boat stayed warm enough all night and through the day today. No hint yet of the condensation I have been warned about. I can see that with a drop of ten more degrees I might be struggling to stay warm enough. I'll have to explore whether there are a few modest efforts I could make to insulate and take the edge off. I'm already planning to bring my down booties on the next trip out.
My problematic starboard side reading light has stopped functioning. I am going to have to accelerate plans to address my lighting problems. It is probably time to buy a few LED reading lights and figure out the head vanity light problem.
