    Quick summer into fall

    Wow, 3 or 4 days here and it shifted super quick.

    Almost cold enough to turn the heat on, a few weeks ago I had the window fan going at night.

    We're still hovering in the low 80's her in So Cal where I live. That's about average for us. We were having some pretty hot nights and without A/C is was miserable but now the evening are cooling down which is helping us get a better night's sleep.

    I wish...since I work outside all day/night.

    Not sure we've hit 100f yet so far.
    It's been hovering in the mid to high 90s all summer...but a bit more humid then usual to make up for the slightly cooler temps.

    Still in the 90s during the day here.. Starting to cool down a bit at night. On a labor day regatta with a friend's sailboat, we are actually in a marina running the AC because it's hot out

    Isn't the solution to just take a jump in the water? And for that matter... how big of a boat is it where it has A/C?

    We've been leaving the AC "off" on the boat at night, we put the hatches up to catch a breeze to cool the cabin area.
    Still need some AC in the daytime.
    Prepping for a trip next weekend with a bunch of dock neighbors, going to Long Island (NY) for a few days.

    This summer felt sooo short. First part of the summer sucked weather wise, plus with the heavy rains, the Connecticut River was flowing fast and full of logs coming down from way up north (starts just short of the Canada border). A lot of boats at our marina banged up props this summer...so most of us didn't go out much.

    The boat I was on is a 35' Pearson outfitted as a cruiser more than a racer, with a dinghy on davits in the back. It's been to the Bahamas/Abacos a few times. The AC is water-cooled aftermarket addition hidden in some cabinets under the seats, has two air vents, one in the main cabin and another in the forward v-berth. Keeps it nice and cool if you're hooked on 120v in the marina, or running the 2.2kWh generator out back. Only used it on Sunday during the day when it was toasty in the 90s, we were sailing Saturday from Jacksonville jetties north up to Fernandina Beach (about 20 nautical miles race, then an hour away from the city marina), back down on Monday.

    Visited the oldest bar in Florida on Sunday in Fernandina, called Palace Saloon, opened 1903. It was a fun weekend.
