Big winds off Lake Erie this past week. Many damaged boats. I lost my cover and broke my 2 by 6 frame to pieces. 120 Kim hour winds. Sure wish there was inside storage in our area

I don't get those stands...look like it would fall off pretty easy!
Speaking of boats on stands, I say ... ENOUGH with the snow already! This crap has to stop. This is Virginia, not Ontario. I have a hull to sand and paint, a trim actuator to replace, topsides to wax ... ENOUGH.
I like having four seasons, but this winter stuff has worn out its welcome. I don't want this to be the year I launch after April 1st.
I got all of my maintenance done Friday. Trying to figure out what else to come up with on things to do before uncovering. I think this weekend we will load everything back in the boat, then hold off one more week to uncover. She's waxed inside and out, ready to put plug in, take cover off and go!
oh, and put isinglass on, which I'll do next weekend under the cover as well, I've found that it stays toasty enough under the cover making it easy enough to put the isinglass up without the use of a hair dryer!

I even have the (green) 2019 Vessel Safety Check decals for this year. I expect to have requests soon. We have 2 marinas in the area where we do a "blitz" of exams. But I also do VSC by appointment. Speaking of which, it's free and easy to get a vessel safety check. Oh and check your fire extinguishers. If you have Kidde extinguishers, see if they are part of the recall and get the replaced (for free) from Kidde. I had 5 of them replaced, 2 I had just bought at West Marine a couple months before.
