Now just a darned minute, RTF, I keep a studded snow tire as a spare for just such occasions. Also keep my Mother's ashes in the trunk in case I get stuck.

By the way, I think you ought to change your Avatar for your 3000th post.

My boat was frozen in solid 2 weeks ago. Solid. No rocking or moving at all when I climbed aboard. But the bilge heater was running fine and all seemed well.

Wow RT 3000 posts.

How many keystroks is that.

That's why Marin went away.

Holy cow I just saw my post at 2995. Do we get a membership in some sort of club.

wasn't it Groucho who said I wouldn't be in any club that had me as a member or something to that effect.

You have to change your avatar not profile, I scratched my head over this awhile ago trying to figure it out.

Storm warning today and tomorrow, 50 knots tonight and again tomorrow. Gotta love a Sou'easter, especially as the marina swears the piling I'm next to goes 22 feet into the bottom... We'll see.
