Ice Age 2017 | Mannheim Harbour

„If there’s more than one possible outcome of not getting your boat out of the water before onset of winter, and one of those outcomes will result in disaster or an undesirable consequence, then someway it will end up that way.“

An example of applied Murphys Law. Personal circumstances and some kind of procrastination were leading to the fact that my little sailyacht MILVA18 – who definitely is not built for an expedition to Antarctica – had to stay all winter long in her berth. Due to very low water level already in beginning of December, there was no way to get her with 1,15m draught into the wharf for craning at level 0,5m. Surely, exactly this winter is supposed to become a tought one.

Any ideas to prevent her from damage are more than welcome.
