today was an unseasonably warm day for January in Michigan – I think the temperatures were in the high 50′s this afternoon. I’ve been unable to take my Sunfish up to my dad’s barn for winter storage due to various schedule conflicts and then snowy roads – so today was shaping up to be a perfect day to drive the hour or so west to his house and put it away in his barn.
I forgot to take any pictures today, but it looks pretty much the same as last year’s winter storage (see pic below)! since no one was home – I even muscled the Sunfish up there by myself – it took a little creativity and some brute strength, but I was able to lift the boat up and fasten the 2×4 beams under it to hold it in place.
when I was driving home, I did chance upon a VERY different way to store a Sunfish, and just had to stop and take a picture. it looks like it was just tossed into the back of the old beat up wooden boat.
