    It's been unusually cold here, so we thought it was good day to go out on the water...[​IMG]

    A little windy wasn't it?
    Was it a good run?

    I'm going to be mad if the Christmas lights on your bowrail work next year and the ones on my tree don't! Nice pics and I'm sure you were the only one on the water! Maybe we need to park our boat over there for the winter so we could use it occasionally? Hmm......

    So... You put Christmas tree lights up on your bow and go out and splash around in the saltwater with 120v going through them?

    You use a hairdryer in the bathtub also?

    Well...I figured if they work on the outside of the house, in the rain/wind/snow they'll work just fine on the boat. They are all outdoor lights/cords with the single plug sealed. Worked great last year too.

    It started getting windy enough that we turned back and headed south back through "the Narrows" where it was flat calm. The wind was blowing out of the north a good 15-20 knots over towards Foss inlet.
