The winter is here and it seems to be staying for a while. Temperatures are between -2 and -10 deg C, not quite what we are used to. Tonight we had another 10 cm of snow. There is no sailing on the bay as it lays frozen but, quite a lot of skaters and fishing on a suny weekend.

Sally has now been completely covered allowing us to dry out the areas on the bottom in need of repairs. We have two areas where there has been some osmosis; the ruder and around the bow thruster. In the first case, we suspect that there is some water leaking in, in the second probably because the installation was laminated with the wrong kind of resin.
