Should warm up some, Janice. I'll wave to you when I go over the Carrabelle bridge tomorrow on my way to St. George Island for Thanksgiving dinner.

if the manufacturer isn't still around and their records aren't either...many manufacturer's gel coat colors were preserved by the gel coat manufacturers so don't worry...a good glass guy can get the color or match it pretty well. I have also heard that some people have taken chips and white base to a paint store and the computer tinting matched pretty well..problem is gel darkens wit age...that's why manufacturer original color mix is best.

Is Lost Key near where the old Rod and Reel Marina used to be before Ivan wiped it out? Big Lagoon can kick up a chop in that area. One of the only places I've almost gotten seasick tied up at the dock!

I took two days off from work to make a long vacation week; we planned in advance to take the boat down to Caladesi Island. Well, the trip got canceled because of the weather. We experienced 20-25 knot winds. I was on the dock and nearly lost my footing from a gust. I decided to stay on board at the marina and get some electrical work done until the wee hours of the night. It was nice and cozy with the heat running! My three year old was coloring and watching TV in the v-berth and wifey was sipping on coffee.

Absolutely... I've got a 33 pound Rocna on 1/4" G4 chain. I don't move. The only concern I have is when I go to the dock for the engine swap will be in getting the anchor up. Usually by day three I have to tie off to the Samson post and power it loose. So, I'll chat with the local BoatUS guy and see if for a case of beer he'll unset the anchor. After four months (in one place!!!) that son-of-a-gun is buried deep.

I'll be going ashore (C-Quarters invited Skipper and I over for the pot-luck dinner they are throwing) so wave before the bridge John.

It's going to be a fun day. I've never had deep fried turkey (looking forward to trying that though) and James (he works at C-Quarters and I can state unequivocally he's very good at the grill) is smoking a turkey and ham, plus deep frying the bird. I don't think anyone will go hungry!

There's a lovely couple from Brazil in too and she bakes... she'd made a carrot cake (real, not packaged) that was divine... so light, and not too sweet either. It should be fun though I wish I had not left my foul weather gear in Kidlet's closet. She's even got my souwester rain hat. I look like a duck when wearing it, but I'm dry!

Hoping everyone has a scrumptious day tomorrow. I've been listening to the old Thanksgiving radio shows on my radio via USB flash drive. And Friday I'll start with the Christmas shows. Remember radio theater? That's what I've got -- everything from Jack Benny to It's a Wonderful Life. Gosh those were good shows and so much fun to listen to again. The innocence and the imagination too -- you actually could picture everything. I suppose it's like revisiting old friends each December and November. They are all there waiting for me, along with the singers like Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Rosemary Clooney, Dean Martin...

I am so fortunate. Life truly is wonderful afloat.

Love it. When I was a kid in Europe I used to listen to AFRTS and SEB. We didn't get TV. I loved the old radio shows they would play in the evening.

Try these folks for gelcoat. They have all kinds and the records of many boat manufacturers. Even if you get the original gelcoat because of age it will probably have to be tinted. A good gelcoat man is an artist.

You can call them, and actually speak to a knowlegable person.

What does naming them have to do with anything? besides i thought it was the weather channel who is naming them, likely to give anchors something to talk about...not the NWS or NOAA.

Congratulations and may I say you've got great timing. By the time it's warm you'll be splashed. Good luck and all that.

Yes, yes, tropical storms...are named by WMO but the crazyness of naming every noreaster that blows is the work of the weather channel. correct me if i am wrong but i didn't even see 'Boris' as a potential name on the website you listed.

The Weather Channel’s decision this winter season to start naming severe winter storms in the U.S. — such as bestowing the name “Nemo” for the massive Feb. 8-9 winter storm — most likely will not have any implication for “named-storm clauses” found in many property policies, the Insurance Information Institute said.

No Insurance Implication for Weather Channel's Decision to Name Winter Storms
