This actually happened October 2nd, I was hoping to extend the season but an early season nor-easter put an end to those plans. The boat suffered a little cosmetic damage (rub rail got smucked up) lost all my fenders and snapped three lines, but compared to the shark mouths that ended up in some of the sailboats, it was not bad.
I am heading tomorrow to go get some new (used) rub rail for the boat, I found a ship-wrecker that is only about five hours away so I am grabbing the truck and going for a drive. It has been a long time since I had the truck out for a nice long drive! But since I just changed the oil and all of the brakes I think it is time.
Re-torque the wheels before I leave, but other than that I am ready to roll! I even put the sand bags in the back since I may end up driving through some snow.
Oh well, pictures.
One of my dock neighbors had the same idea, it was a nice day for a sail.
