Creepy Crawlies

Hello all. Itís winter in upstate New York, which means Iím spending my days daydreaming about being a live aboard where the air outside doesnít hurt my face. One nice thing about living in the frozen north is that there arenít really any bugs. No mosquitoes, flies, noseeums, and thank god, no spiders.

Iím not okay with spiders. I can kinda deal with smaller ones, say less than the size of a quarter, but those big hairy ones are the stuff of nightmares for me. I turn into a white girl and Ďcanít even.í

For those of you cruising in warmer climes, like Florida, the gulf coast, and the Caribbean, how often do you encounter these many-legged spawns of Satan in the winter months? Do you ever get any big bastards on your boat?
Just be nice to each other, dammit.
