Sailing California Lakes

We traveled north from Southern California with Alice Gale to sail lakes along the way to Seattle.  We made sailing stops at Folsom Lake and Shasta Lake.

Alice Gale gets a cover

Gail and I made a cover for Alice Gale.  We purchased Sunbrella cloth online and designed a fairly tight fitting cover using heavy plastic sheeting from Home Depot as a template for each panel.   A PFAFF quilting sewing machine did the heavy work (a bit difficult with multi-layer seams).   It took about three days to put it together.   We have used it so far for several overnight stays in campgrounds while heading up north to Seattle with good success.  It has kept the dirt and dew out of the boat.
