You gotta love a southern climate in winter!  Checked on Baggy Wrinkles today in temperatures of almost 70 degrees.  I had to pinch myself that we're in the "dead of winter" so to speak.

So the cover for her is now underway at Sailor's Tailor.  And I needed to confirm a couple of measurements with photos for the folks sewing the thing.  Just the excuse I needed to ride my motorcycle to the Yacht Club.

The tarp over the cockpit had done an amazingly good job of sheltering the dory during my 2 week absence while traveling north.  Yet the debris was very very light.  I don't anticipate the cover for about 4 weeks and the next surge of debris until march when the pollen begins to fall. 

Yesterday was a great motorcycling day however, heated gear was not needed.  As you can tell from the photo, skies were bright and clear and the wind was at a minimum.  Hopefully the cover will arrive in good time to protect Baggy Wrinkles from the junk that falls from the skies.  And we won't even begin to talk about snow and ice!
