This morning, summer is officially over in Seattle. It's raining here, really raining, for the first time since... I don't know when. And the forecast shows rain for the foreseeable future. And now is the season when all of us living on boats get to find out whether we have successfully dealt with our deck leaks.
While knocking on a piece of nearby teak, I can say that the changes I made to our mast boot have worked. The mast is dry inside the cabin.
