Ice On Deck


It was so cold… (How cold was it?)

  • we had to run the the engine for an hour to warm up the boat enough to eat a cold breakfast.

  • we could use the ice from the bimini for our gin and tonics.

  • the fridge doesn't need to run.

Coincidentally. Our primary propane cylinder decided to call it quits today, also. That leads to much grief and consternation. We already replaced the solenoid while in Great Bridge.

It was brutally cold and the stove decides not to work.

WWN "What's Wrong Now?"

WJFT "We Just Fixed That!"

Things you say so often, they go without saying.

It was below 0°C last night. And will be again tonight.

Tomorrow it may reach 14°C (57°F) which will be welcome.

A Mr. Heater MH18 that burns 1# propane cylinders would have been a good idea back when we were in Hampton or Norfolk. When it was warm. And we didn't need a heater.

We'll buy one when we get to civilization. Then — don't you know — it will be a delightful, mild winter and we'll never use it.
