Re: What's with the slime??

The boat is sailed at least 3 days a week and raced on Wednesdays. For some that's a lot, but there are 3 partners with different schedules. Mondays and Tuesdays I'm out there practically alone. Today I stole a few hours before work and it was a circus on the river. Albeit a windy circus. 2 weeks we're heading for MV.
We are up the Hudson river far enough where there has been no sign of barnacles, only the DAMN SLIME!! Argh!! Before the last race a buddy was shocked when he saw me roll off the dock with a mask, regulator and tank. 1 hour is all it took. What could I charge my dock mates???

Yes all true, No wonder no one will go on the water with me.
