Snow. We had 13 boats sink after getting 4 feet of snow in a day.

Edit: total was 5.5 feet in a day and a half

If that amount of snow creates a weight problem it would be prudent to do one of two things:

1. Order and stock less snow
2. store it as low in the hull as possible to minimize weight issue

The boat cover in post #2 is for rain mostly. That's how many boats "winter over" on SE Alaska. Or to paint and do repairs any time of the year. Very common.
Also livaboards gain some real estate and insulation.

No Mast-your second option has an additional advantage-when the snow melts your bilge pumps will clear it out!

I grew into it! :-)

I requested the designation from the Mods. Curmudgeon seemed better than "Old and in the way."

There's a 7 foot hedge under that long hump in the foreground, and that's the second story of our new addition in the background. The grass was green before this all got dumped in less than two days

Seasons are awesome!!!!!!!!

You gain a deeper appreciation of springs warmth after winter, and winters purity after summer and fall

Today I saw a bumblebee, heard a red winged blackbird, and saw eagles getting a free ride on thermals.

Look at the hull type on the spec list. It is a "semi-display" home.
