Thread: Hurricane Irma Gerstner O42

    Hurricane Irma Gerstner O42

    We fled from Florida just before Hurricane Irma hit, due to a planned vacation. We put up our storm shutters and left town a day early. Of course, before I left, I bought a chest on Ebay and arranged to pick it up in Connecticut so I would have a project to work on. I met a nice guy in Middletown, CT, and picked up an O42 in great shape. Good bones, lousy finish. Dirty and sweaty, just how I like them! We're staying on the Connecticut shore and, since I am not a beach person, I work on it while the family is roasting at the beach (a hostile environment for a pale blue Scottish person like me).

    Back at it

    The remnants of Hurricane Jose passed by the Connecticut shore last night and this morning, with no reportable incidents. Just to be on the safe side, I hauled everything back down to the basement of the rental cottage to apply the first coats of polyurethane.

    Moved to Enfield, CT

    We're still refugees from Irma, but have moved our headquarters to my other daughter's house in Enfield, CT. I took over her garage and driveway and applied the final coats of polyurethane during a record hot spell here in the Northeast. It's been over 90 for two days, with more hot weather to come.
