Covered for Winter

Went down yesterday to tuck Fanny in for the winter. Went a bit faster than usual this year due to us writing down on the canvas cover which end was 'port', 'starboard' 'bow' and 'stern'. Although we had accidentally threw away the bag of stanchion pads we've been using for years, so we had to cut up a flannel blanket to use as makeshift pads. Beautiful weather for it, sunny and warm, and we both came home with numerous 'boat bites' on our fingers. Brought home the cockpit doors to refinish them over the winter (and maybe make some 'screened doors' for next summer). See you in the spring.
