Adeline 1


I’d planned to shuffle boats around Monday, but the weather outside was unpleasant, with sleet changing to snow that lasted all day, so with no desperate hurry, I decided to wait to move Adeline (currently called Snow Squall, ironically enough) into the shop, hoping for better weather Tuesday.  I fiddled around the shop on various maintenance projects for most of the day.

Tuesday dawned cold and raw, with an inch or so of now-icy snow on everything, and I wished I’d just done the move on Monday after all.  Nevertheless, it was time to get the boat indoors so that there’d be time for the new snow to melt off before I could get to work.  So after some adjustment to the trailer pads, I moved the boat indoors uneventfully.  Once the snow on deck had loosened up a bit after a few hours, I pushed most of it off onto the floor to hasten the melting and drying process overnight.

Total time billed on this job today:  1.5 hours 

0600 Weather Observation:  30°, partly clear. Forecast for the day:  Becoming partly sunny, 41°
