That would be Newport..

BTW, freezing rain is really a bad thing for boats still in the water, or even on the hard... a really good storm can add a lot of weight to the boat—often enough to capsize the boat. You'd be surprised at how heavy a layer of ice from a New England storm can be.

Labatt-

Basically, you wrap the shrink wrap tape around the shroud and the shrink wrap, so the tape seals the top of the opening in the shrink wrap. You'll probably want to use the two-inch wide shrink wrap tape, that kind of looks like white duct tape.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
