Not much posting going on in this section.  But it's now November and we midwest sailors are now officially in the "off season"
My Santana 21 swing keel is now under the tarps.  Got a list of maintenance items to do before next spring.  Clean the hull, fabricate new hatch covers for the cabin, re-paint the rudder, teak oil on the trim, etc. 
I'm an old guy (82) so I move slower on these projects.  Might not even get 'em all done, but she'll go in the water next May anyway.  Can't waste water time during the short Minnesota summers.
I also have a couple motorcycles with off-season projects to do.
Merry Christmas to all... sail on !!!
Summary of my life in one sentence...
It seemed like a good idea at the time !
