And looking realistically at what is on our plate for the remaining few nice days of the year, we won't get Eolian off the dock again in 2016. So, we have brought the winter fenders to the marina and are doubling up our docklines in preparation for the gales of winter, which are sure to come. I didn't get to diving on the prop to put on a fresh zinc this last weekend because we had the pleasure of running into Grant and Laurie of s/v Shadowdance, old friends from Shilshole... and let's be honest here... I didn't really want to jump in the 51° water either. So I still have that to do.
It was a great year tho, with week after week living at anchor in the San Juan Islands, some spectacular sails, and 50 crabs in the freezer.
