Subject: [Leica] BOATING PESO - Putting the Boat Away

The end of the season came a bit early this year for us.  We sailed  
"Bewitched" across Buzzards Bay to it's winter home in Acoot Cove last  
Saturday.  The temperature was in the sixties (F) with light and  
variable north to northeast breezes and often no wind at all.

When we did have wind we paid close attention to the sails to keep the  
boat moving.

We sailed through a racing fleet as we neared the north side of the  
Bay.  They were barely moving in the light northerlies.

After motoring up the narrow channel into the boatyard, we tied up  
next to another Stone Horse awaiting winter haulout and checked out  
her rigging.

Back in Woods Hole, some of our members were stripping their runabouts  
of gear in anticipation of haulout.

After a long season of shooting with only my big zooms on the D300,  
for a change I decided to use only my 28 mm Nikkor on this trip.    
Naturally, given the perverse nature of all things mechanical and  
electrical, the auto diaphragm mechanism failed and I didn't notice it  
until I was back on shore.  So, these shots were all rescues in  
Lightroom from files that were 2-3 stops overexposed.

C&C always welcome.
