Someone else just posted a message asking for tips about winterizing. Here in Sunny Florida we winterize by changing our weekly night racing to Sunday afternoons, leave work early on Friday to sail down the river where we drop anchor and sleep late on Saturday morning. Around noon or 1 pm, we clean the bottom of the boat as our excuse to go for a refreshing swim with the dolphins in the continually shifting waters at Sebastian Inlet. Then, around 4 pm we pull up the anchor and drift over to a deserted island where we unload the grill, steaks and salad. After a luscious meal under the starry skies we crawl into sleeping bags. Some of us stay on the island while others climb aboard and rest their weary bodies on the comfy trampolines that bridge the outer amas to the main hull of my Corsair.
Ay, what a way to spend the winter. This is what you mean by winterizing isn't it?
