2016 Out for the season.
Tower Marine pulled Kraken for me mid-September this year and it has been raining ever since. Sunday after it stopped raining I got down and pulled all the sails and cushions for the winter.
I have to get down and do a little more cleaning and pull the motor this weekend. I'm hoping to get the cabin squeaky clean so when spring rolls around I'm ready for a early launch again this year. This year I'm planning on leaving the mast up and tarping off over the boom and spinnaker pole hopefully giving my self a bit more pitch so the snow slides off as they are predicting a rough winter for us.
It all fits in the back of a Ford focus.
