So who and why winter jobs are people on with ?

With a very last minute house move I have yet to still winterise my "vessels" never mind additional and repairs.

Measure up for new cover, built some where ashore to keep her, cut into that brand new consul for VHF and work out routing for aerial.

Do something with the anchor locker - it's huge, back under front quarter of deck, so anchor and chain has far too much room. Annoying really as it's only a small hatch at the front of the locker. Thinking of cow mat and neoprene for protection then glueing in a gas tube to slide it in and bungy across the front to keep in place.
