One of those days ...
02 January 2018 | Titusville
Cloudy, rainy, windy, raw. Low 50s.
Raw, windy, cloudy, bouncy day. But not as bad as the boats where the small waves come right through the mouth of the harbor unimpeded down their fairway/channel. Or the boats out in the mooring field. I shudder every time I look out there. It is calming down a bit right now, but tomorrow afternoon it is supposed to kick up again, and be even worse for a few hours - some models say 40 knots. So I spent time adjusting my lines and adding a tweaker line to the port aft line that goes up to the pole.
So far, the damage to other boats in the harbor seems limited to various flags and some tarps. The sail on the boat in front of me is now also ripping. Before it was just the cover. There are a lot of neglected boats in Florida. In some cases, the decks and top sides are actually turning green.
My shelf still leaks. I found more leaking bolts way up in the bow. The good news is the fitting I worked on last time seems dry.
Still in the 50s at night (and day), but that will change tomorrow with three nights in the low 30s. Can hardly wait. Not what I was expecting. Payback for all those weeks when I almost never saw a cloud and it was quiet.
