Re: Plants on your boat

First, remember what happened to Captain Bligh when he put all those breadfruit plants aboard the Bounty.

Second, if you must, I offer this:

(1) Remove and do not replace antifouling bottom paint.
(2) Put boat in water.
(3) Wait.
(4) Soon, you may harvest not only some of the most nutritious & tasty vegetables in the world, but also tasty, low-fat protein-filled barnacles.

...of course, you won't be sailing *quite* as fast as you're used to, but if you were in a hurry, you wouldn't be on a boat anyway.

"The skipper should be the calmest person on board.
It is good for the morale of those around you. However, if everyone around you is frightened then be aware of the possibility that they know something you donít."
