The name came from back when I got my first twin engine boat in the late 80s.

My trawler is a 1985, 35 ft single engine Volvo Penta diesel.

The boat is home to us and we have cruised the east coast for 5 years before doing some land cruising.

Have it under a nice shed, but won't protect from the temps. Any other things you may could add for me to watch for much appreciated. Thanks!!
I just caught what you said about diesel. Check your engine owners manual. Are you certain #1 can be used? Winter diesel at most reputable pumps is preconditioned at the station when the tanker delivers.

I hope you can stay warm. Don't forget to drip your faucet if it drops below freezing.

At the moment San Diego, CA is under a tornado watch.

Happy trails,
Rick Y

Thanks! I guess by your post you must be in or around the San Diego area. I saw on the news there are bad storms out that way. Be Safe!!

A heavenly fire hose is blasting the rig as I write. This camp is all stick and no brick. Being safe is very relative. No ware to go but up. The good news is that the drought is being quenched.

Blessings and happy trails,

It got down in the 60s last night. It was too cold this morning for me to read my paper on the lanai.

Michigan and 14 this AM. I don't know what the wind chill was but frigid does not quite describe it.

Come on Spring!

Official temp this AM here in Townsend, GA 30,, Measured here at the RV park 35. Folks around me are all bundled up like it's cold out, Complaing how they are Freezing (Well 30 is Freezing)

Me... Well I keep remembering one morning parking cars (or rather directing the drivers to parking) before the sun came up at an event that was advertised as "First in Michigan" (Meaning the first of the calendar year) The guy across the road in the nice heated room handling talk in (Lots of folks have 2-way radios) came onto the parking lot frequency and told us the wind chill factor at the moment.. -40... your choce of C or F at that temp... Now that.. Is COLD.
