HB Insider - how long could you last?
May 28, 2017
The weather is getting really nice, not too cold, not TOO HOT, just right. It's the perfect weather so that you can do work around the boat in shorts and a t-shirt. The nights are still cool enough that you don't need any air conditioning, so we sleep like babies... :)
But you never know what tomorrow will bring...On a personal note, unfortunately our marina suffered a major power failure that lasted 7 days, so we went a week without electrical power.
