We have had a cold Fall here and just bundling up won't do it. I have
been out in my sailing canoe the last two weekends and have had to
deal with a thin skin of ice until I reached more brackish water.
Yesterday my sheet froze in the clamcleat (I know - another reason
not to cleat the sheet). I've been wearing my full farmer john
wetsut. At least it makes for a dry canoe as what water comes over
the gunnels freezes in the bottom.
I do have fun doing my impersonation of an icebreaker.
