Last year my lovely wife wanted to explore some of Florida's lakes and small rivers near my dad's place. We even went to the trouble of checking out some boat launches. It didn't take too much effort to see that those waters were not meant for our Oday 19 sailboat. Even with the keel raised, shallows and weeds would be a problem. Power lines and low fixed bridges were also of concern.
However, our little Ooze Goose scow should be perfect. Powered by oars and paddles we should be able to explore some interesting places.
When we left New Hampshire there was some ice in the cockpit and lazerette. It's much easier to drive south until the ice melts then pump it out with a manual bilge pump than to chip out the ice.
I should check the wheel bearings on the trailer. Actually, I probably should have jacked up the trailer and checked them hundreds of miles ago, but it was too darn cold. The trailer could also use a new set of submersible lights.
However, the main drawback right now is that I'm still trying to recover from my nasty cold. The warm weather and moist air has helped, but it'll be a few days before I'm feeling 100%.
Hope to feel better soon so I can play river pirate.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
