For me it means some routine maintenance projects and weekends away on the boat. Unfortunately, we never get enough weekends away but we are always hoping for more.

Down here it means - I'm sure glad I don't live up north anymore. The hurricane season is cooling off, nice temps, gorgeous boating weather. occasional "cold fronts" (all the way down to 50) will occasionally occcur with a day or so of 30-35 blows. Fog will start creeping in in November. After Xmas/New Years, boating weather like our PNW friends enjoy. Crisp cool days with an occasional 80ish day. October and March are the best. By May, we remember we're in the sweat belt.

Here in San Diego, Fall means the Zonas are headin' back to Zona, openin' up the parkin' lot with more parkin' spaces. The fishin' activity is slowin' down while the fair-weather sailboaters are off to do other things. All in all, Fall is my favorite time of year.

For snowbirds, Fall is the start of boating in FL.

Here in Maine it means it is time to talk to the boat yard about haulout. Tortuga will come out next week and Seaquestor about two weeks after that. Once the boats are out it means it is time to start on my Fall boat projects. I have three planks to replace on Tortuga and am planning to recore the cockpit sole on Seaquestor and maybe get started on the prep for painting the hull.

Fall means first snows on the mountains (started a couple weeks ago here, which is pretty early) and Humpback numbers start to dwindle as they head south.

(First photo using new computer...not sure if it'll work)

Very bittersweet time for us northerners! My boat is slipped in Boston and I'll be hauling her out after Halloween. But actually the next couple of weeks here we still have decent boating weather and I'm looking forward to it! Usually at least temps in the 60's and some 70 degree days. In November its not worth it IMO.....

I can't wait til next season! Actually I can't wait til I retire!.....Im only 35 years old though, long way to go.

We will cruise, until, or when the ice stops us. Lady soft will remain in the water, maybe covered from late Dec-Mar. This is a good time if you want to spend your time alone, at your favorite places. And i look forward to hunting and fishing.

Naples is in good shape and north from there very little damage to the west coast of Florida. No damage at all from Fort Myers north. All marinas are running as usual. Tween Waters on Captiva opened their new second pool and that resort and South Seas are looking great.

We hauled Miss Maui last week, fresh bottom paint, buff and wax, assorted minor maintenance issues addressed. Back in the water tomorrow ready for winter cruising. At Point No Point at Labor Day I counted 40 boats in eyesight. From October to April we'll hit the same spot and see no one else. Winter cruising in the PNW is wonderful.

Wifey B: Yesterday we talked the rental people into renting us a boat for a few hours on the lake in NC. Today not on the water but beautiful upper 70's here in Charlotte this weekend.
