Thanks for the good sound advice. Eryka, I think you are aboard so close to my dock you can almost see our boat from your marina.
Right now we're keeping it simple and playing it by ear.
It's funny because in real life I see so many other marinas where you can spot the liveaboard boats from a mile away because of the "stuff". But online when I asked about it in a couple of different forums, everyone keeps a tidy dock.
We are "ready to sail" and like to stay that way during the season. Good point Eryka. I don't know if my ideas for the dock would impact that or not.
Good things to ponder...
