C22 Shrink Wrap

Been busy and it has been cold.

On the weekend it was sunny and warm (high 7 degrees C) with not much wind.

Got the frame up on Saturday, and the shrink wrap on with the help of dockmate Scott.

However, the Shrinkwrap gun was in use on Razorbill, so I used it on Sunday to complete it.

CS34 Cover

It was sunny and warm (over 12 degrees C).

Rita and I we determined to get the cover on big Still Time.

While I was getting the frame together Rita was emptying the boat.  This year we are removing all the cushions and storing them in the basement at home.

Loaded up BOTH the truck and car with cushions
Laying out and assembling the frame is a two person job.  The canvas cover zippers into three pieces to make it manageable.

Fitting cover on stern
You can see the bimini frame below the boat

Second boat in
Very easy boat access for the winter.

Motor and water system winterized.

Topped up the batteries with distilled water, and charged them up.

Big Still Time is ready for a sleep.

WYC Swan Haulout

The work crews were busy taking out the remaining docks in the basin for the winter.

I asked them to also take the sailing school's Swan paddle boat out to save us from using the mast crane later.


...and a YouTube video of the lift:
