Lots of boats to get out before it gets cold.

The boat yard is getting more and more boats that want to get out before the weather turns cold. There is a lot of work to be done hauling, shrink-wrapping, winterizing the engines and putting gear away.

I imagine there are long days in the boat yard right now! Looks like a nice day - great reflections.

There is something so great about sailboats, their masts and the reflections they create. I never knew that you shrink wrapped a boat, until I saw Footloose all packed up for winter.

Always love seeing sailboats in a harbor -- that's one of the magical things about Chicago's coastline -- all the harbors a long it with the city behind.

I'd never considered the problems of storing boats over a long and cold winter.Great shot by the way.

Think a lot of people kept boats in longer this fall but that may be a false impression I have. Cold weather coming this weekend.

A full time job in itself putting them all to bed! Lovely scene of them all sitting there on the still water.

@milaniet Yes, my husband who usually works only mornings at the yard during hauling season had to work all day Friday they are so busy.

All of this is such a strange and unknown activity to me. I guess living in such harsh conditions calls for more care with just about anything.
