CS34 Winter Cover Take II

On my way to the club, I stopped a 3 places to get some plumbing antifreeze.  Everyone was sold out.  Found some at the Whitby Home Depot and bought the last jugs they had.

Got to the club in the afternoon and the winds had picked up from the east, and blew the middle and aft sections of the cover off!

Someone had gathered it up and put it under the boat.

Inspected the cover, and no further damage!

Rita helped me get the cover on this time without incident!

Patch Phil sewed on

Spent the afternoon:
  • winterizing plumbing
  • winterizing motor
  • winterizing deck wash
  • winterizing head
  • putting boom under the boat
  • putting dodger/bimimi frames under the boat
  • filled the fuel tank
  • charging the batteries
Used 4 gallons of -50 plumbing antifreeze ($20), and 1 gal of -100 environmentally friendly antifreeze in the motor ($15).

Fuel tank was at 1/4 full, so completely filled the 80L tank with 60L of diesel.

Three 20L yellow jugs.

In the meantime a cold SE wind was stiring up Lake Ontario:

All that is left to do is move the mast to the racks and now that the boat is empty clean and oil the inside teak.

Mast now moved to the rack:
