Partial antidote to minus two Fahrenheit
I just watched the DVD from the 2006 Thompson Antique & Classic Boat Rally held last August in Marinette. The 1959 Sea Coaster we restored in 2005 made the trip. It was so chilly that I had to buy long sleeved shirts for my wife and myself. It must have been in the 60's. I felt warmer just viewing the DVD.
In September I bought our next project, a 1962 Thompson Sea Mate. This boat is in wonderful condition and only requires new paint on the hull and resealing of the keel. Another fun project for warmer weather.
