(and she is very pretty; what is she?)
Thanks, She's a Morgan Tiger Cub. She's been named "Tiger Cub" as well since new ....... I'm reluctant to change at this point. Only 8 or 10 were made (Charlie's not sure.) She's in reasonably good shape for a 44 year old boat but ya know there's alway's gonna be something to work on!
I like you're idea with the line (BTW the dock line is proper now) as a temp fix until a permanent solution.
