Winterizing the boats

It's that time of year that the boats do a lot more sitting than sailing, and we flip the boats over to keep them relatively clean. We had a small crew, but we were able to quickly take down the masts and get everything stowed for the winter.

Stowing the masts behind the boat shed takes some muscle.

Masts are secured so that they are unaffected by the winds.

Joe and Troy always have a smile and a smart comment for the camera.

New trick is to use the A-Frame to drain excess water from the hull.
