Fog in Hout Bay

This was two days back, the weather report said sunshine and 26c temperature but at 10.30am all we had was this thick fog!


An hour or so later and a light SE breeze arrived, that blew the fog away and exposed the sun, yesterday it was also sunny, today its raining!

Not quite summer yet is it?

Picture one shows some 9mm okoume marine ply doublers port and starboard inside the bow.
This is to fend off the effect of the strong summer winds we have had this past few years.

Crossing the dock lines and adding a 316 stainless steel bow line spring to port has also helped matters, the longer lines allow quite a lot of stretch and act as a cushion.
