Kind of like taking a winter boat ride in one's refrigerator.

We understand the cold feet challenge well. In our Hawk, while underway, apparently wind hits the windshield, loops over our heads and folds back under the seat as in an eddy. In cold weather it is very noticeable. We generally stuff lifejackets and cushions under the from seat to lessen this effect.

It's funny because this doesn't seem to happen in the Rocket.

How cold was it?

It was so cold that I rested my feet on the hull stringers because they got cold resting on the hull floor skin.

No kidding.

In the winter on Lanier it is not unusual on a warm day for condensation to form of the parts of the hull in contact with the water. You know, like how moisture froms on a cold beer. That didn't happen on this cruise because the air temp was to low.

Just getting used to the lay of this land.

Considering the water temp and Murphy's law, his time will come..........splash!


I hope a friend gets a good photo!
