Oh and it's only going to get worse. I hate this time of year... Too miserable to dive and use the boat much, but not cold enough to start skiing yet...

Here's a pic of my Better Half (aka "Boat Tender"), Kelly, decked out in her fall boating gear on the weekend. Underneath all that stuff, she is about 98# soaking wet. Doesn't she look thrilled?

If only I knew someone who lived on a nice Carribbean Island....

Well I guess you do...sort of!

I have a guest apartment below my house and do word of mouth rentals @ rates that vary with how big a pain in the ass I expect the visitors to be. The nightly rate ranges from $20,000.00 to $40.00 depending........

Attached is a very nice view of my electric service....I was hunting for a file that met the size requirement.

That's a fine looking electical hook-up there Tomas. Mine is similar, but is pretty wet (but not white yet) tonight!

Maybe RIBnet should start up a house/boat exchange forum. You come to Tobermory, I'll come down there... We'll send Codders up to Alaska with Jimmy!

Stoo...

Well there's an idea you've got about the exchange. You don't mind if I wait a few months to travel to Ontario, do you?

I saw in Ribs & Ribbing the thread about the prop and foil mounted on the flying rib. You should put skis on your hull and a prop with rudder and go year round!

Damn power is down around here all the time. We pay a little over .31 per kilowatt hour as well! I counted seventeen splices in the line from my house to the bottom of my road....all storm hits. The problem is that they can take weeks to get to you if its been bad and they have a lot of breaks. The one guy at the dead end waits till all other work is complete.

I suppose not... on the upside, you could walk to a number of our wrecks in winter if you come in a month or so. Just saw a hole in the ice and jump in!

The power situation isn't much better in Tobermory. I swear they have one line that runs up from "civilization". The line often comes down in the winter due to wind and it an take several days to restore power. I'm glad I heat with wood and have a propane stove. I have an electric water pump of course, but I can always get a bucket of water out of the lake if I need it... or just leave town... although the highway can be closed for long periods too, depending on the wind and snow...

The main thing to remember is to never let the liquor cupboard get low! I recently discovered that Pineapple Rum is a perfectly satisfactory breakfast beverage!
