Yeah, my first set lasted about a year and a half but, they're cheap ( 10 bucks/pr ), very simple to use and with the wife being in charge of such things as docking, stowing fenders & lines while getting underway, hell, whatever makes her happy.

Cut off from the land that bore us, betrayed by the land we find, where the brightest have gone before us and the dullest remain behind, .......but stand to your glasses, steady,.......tis all we have left to prize, raise a cup to the dead already, hurrah for the next that dies
