BTW, before I logged on, I clicked on the marina webcam to see your boat, and lo and behold, at 8:43 a.m. (eastern time) I saw you walk down the dock and board your boat. Big smile.

Yes'm, south it is. It's getting too damn cold up here! There's snow in the forecast in a few days, and they're rolling up the sidewalks around here.

The most excellent chap aboard the fine looking Marine Trader to my east will be leaving tomorrow morning. I was hoping to get underway and buddy boat along with him, but it looks like I'll need another day to finish up some projects.

They work very nicely off a cheap modified sine wave inverter drawing a few amps when at anchor.

Excellent idea, sir. I do have a 2500 watt inverter, and this boat is actually better set up for cold weather cruising than hot. The propane forced air furnace is keeping up nicely, even when it's gotten down into the thirties. That's a good solution as a backup though.
Just be nice to each other, dammit.
