Alex, you been over at your ex neighbor's boat sharing a bowl with him? This isn't your knockroach thread. This is the legitimate one.

From what I understand, a bluewater cruiser should carry precut plywood blanks for every hatch and port on the boat and have a means of attaching them, especially with newer boats. The ports on my boat are old school bronze ovals with 1/4" thick glass. Anything strong enough to break them is likely going to tear the entire house off. The old wood hatches are a different story.

I you do not have planks then you can not walk them - therefore you can not be pirated.. or did I lose sight of what the discussion is about...

Or in other words...this is where we read the terrible 1000 foot waves and 300 knot winds...and the tall stories that come with them....more or less...

What Gui says has to be taken with a grain or bucket of salt. His connection to reality is somewhat tenuous.

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.
