Re: Sandal-type Boat Shoes

After too many snubbed toes no bare foot piggies when under way. Routine is two pairs of Keen's. Old ones for land. New ones on the boat. Bare foot when not underway or below. Have micro fiber rug ( wife found it at Bed Bath). Type used when getting out of the shower. Place it in front of companionway. Brush feet or Keens every time going below. Boat clean/dry inside. The stick of the Keens is nearly as good as my Dubarry seaboots. Trick is to take some sand paper and rough them up a bit from time to time. Have 5y on the old ones and 2y on the new. Have different color threading to keep them straight.
