RE: It's COLD, but ...

We*has not seen the same amount of snow this winter as Central Europe has. On other hand, it has been BITTERLY COLD. We have seen temps at around 0F most of December.

Doug

The shallow water near Brentwood Bay seems to lend itself*to freezing from time to time. Around the corner at Van Isle, we are holding about 47 degree water temps. I trust you have a good heater.

We saw someone heading south (to FL I hope) this past week. It was blowing really hard from the North so he gave up on the anchorage here at Barnegat Light NJ and ended up spending the night anchored in the middle of Barnegat Inlet where the only protection offered is from a north wind. I woke up and saw him in the morning - he was in clear water and the outgoing tide was dragging two solid flows of ice around him. Luckily he was in the clear water in the middle. As JohnP said, not a time to be boating in NJ!

I can't imagine anyone heading South this late.*They either have to really know what they or doing or they are asking for some very difficult times ahead.* Dave, Your boat looks awesome, she is a bit deep drafted for Barnegat Bay but I am sure your cruising ambitions are more far reaching.*Have a great time with your new ship.

Thanks John - we will keep her right at the inlet and the only time she will spend in the bay is to cross to Waretown for her winter haul for a couple of years before we retire and start cruising year-round. *Even that trip will be on a rising tide!

I like to do as much work myself as I am able and right now it is killing me to have the boat stored out of state. *I have a great guy that helped me do the winter storage and is doing the over-the-winter work I should be doing, but having it on the mainland just across the bay from home is better than even the top of the Chesapeake, which is still a couple of hours.

Conrad:

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

I have not met a "Ken Baillie" in the 16 years we have lived in Halfmoon Bay, but the phone book lists a "David Baillie" on Redrooffs (that's the correct spelling!* Go figure!) Road in Halfmoon Bay.*

That's the best I can do.

RE: It's COLD, but ...

Thanks Old Salt. Ken retired to that area about 25 years ago but passed away some time ago, so perhaps David is a relation. Thanks for following up - I thought it might have been one of those "small world" things!

It's COLD, but ...

Thought*I would go for a boat ride.

*But it took to long to uncover it.

Last year we got 286 inches of this stuff.***

Wish I knew what it was.

Wait I think Oscar the Otter should know I'll ask him.* He hangs out on the docks all winter long.*
Have you ever seen the dropings from an otter it is mostly broken shells.
Hurts just looking at it*

SkipperYou really should trim that mustache before going out in public. And, do you have any photos of the otter? *

RE: It's COLD, but ...

Over the week end the temps dropped into the low 20 and high 30s with little snow.* The marina froze over.* The grand children though it was funny watching the birds crash land on the ice and try to walk on it.* We put out so much heat the ice stays about 3 away from the hull, and between the hull and dock is free of ice.* Its the thawing that I dislike as the ice gets push up against the hull when some crazy boater crunch through the ice.********
