Hibernation and winterworks

All fogpatches cleared up after midnight . With a clear and starbright sky,moderate seaway and warmer than usual weather the rest of the crossing was a pleasure.With scarce traffic and radarzone/AIS alarm system setup waking up every 30mins for a lookout was enough. Making landfall in Kärdla (on the Estonian island of Hiiumaa) just before darkness Boris from Yachts-Service assisted landing by the quayside.
Dora Mac will be demasted and stored inside a warm boatstorage from Yachts-Service (on the lower picture). During winter I have a quote from the yard on spraypainting the hullsides.
Since the plan is heading for northern Norway next season I also have a quote for installing a hydronic heating system (the aircon reversed heatingsystem does have the capacity but is far to energy consuming being dependent on shore/generator power for use).
It will either be a Webasto hydronic heatingsystem (quote from SeaComfort in Sweden) or an Eberspächer hydronic system quoted by Yacts-Service.
All going well Dora Mac will be crossing the Baltic back to homeport in April next year.
