    3. Portland, on a boat, in the winter. Oh, that's cold.

    4. They both have diesel heaters but with the temp at -17 this a.m. it's definitely not toasty inside!

    5. I am a dedicated landlubber below freezing.

      I do love Portland, though (even in winter). I live in Connecticut, but am in Portland for various reasons every other month or so. Always delightful.

      I was eating in Flatbread just before Christmas and watched the ferry bringing riders out to the small islands. Just the thought of the wind chill out on the water was enough for me to order another cup of hot coffee. Brave souls one and all.

  2. Nice pictures. My uncle always wanted us to have North Sails to replace the original issuance for our sloop, "when we have the means". :)

  3. Love the blog, as always. With all the options out there for a New Year’s eve, I’m wondering what you and other readers may do. It’s a conundrum for this year.

  4. It's such a quintessential New England thing that boat yards have a certain charm and character of their own, even on a cold winter day, especially with bright sunshine to soften the cold. And there always seems to be someone out working on their boat enjoying that sunshine. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to SWNE!!!

  5. I checked the Pell Bridge toll rates . The monthly deal is really good . A lot of the tolls I suffer are just singles at full rate with no deal ... :-(

  6. Crazy how many boats aren't hauled and wrapped yet!

  7. Our boat come out of the water and gets winterized and covered in mid-October here, and opened up in early May. Much as I look forward to boating season, I never wish the year away. --Holly in PA
