Rain has been ruining all of our weekend plans for the past couple weeks. I’ll admit, there is nothing as enjoyable as laying around doing nothing while the rain pitter-patters on the top of the boat, but after a few weeks one does start to go crazy.
On Halloween a combination of high tides and large amounts of rainfall led to the waters of Clear Lake climbing up over the bulkheads and clawing their way towards the pools and parking lots.
The fixed piers were totally underwater, and the floating piers were above the bulkheads.
We took a walk all the way around the marina during a lull, more to satisfy my curiosity than for the dogs.
Most of the streets were full of water.
But the boats in the shipyard still need a few more feet of water to float again.
Overall we did get a few things done on the boat, but it was a damp lazy weekend. Our boat is facing some serious leak issues that will need to be addressed immediately. Our mast is still leaking a little bit, although much improved. Multiple windows are leaking now, and our overhead hatch has started dripping, not from the lens Fred replaced last year, but from the actual bedding around the hatch itself. Unfortunately we can’t rip things out to start re-bedding them until we get some sun, and the forecast is predicting even more rain.
