Let's see ... 150' of 5/16 HT chain, a Rocna 25 anchor and a Lewmar V3 windlass-I guess it's god's way of telling you that you have too much money

Revard-

What size boat do you have??? A Rocna 25 is a pretty big anchor. Welcome to the club by the way, as I have a Rocna 15 sitting on the bow roller on my boat.

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.

A better padlock hasp would have the fasteners concealed under the metal when the piece is locked. The ones I use on my boat look like this:



You can't remove the screws when it is locked, and stainless steel is a PITA to cut. It can also be secured without a padlock by turning the padlock eye.

I just spent $37 for 3 feet of 6" x 3/4" teak to rebuild my sail bin cover.

Just finished putting the teak seam goo in. In 48 hours, ready to sand and cetol.

I bid on a full set of LED nav lights earlier today, but it probably won't count because I will get outbid unless I am lucky (but none of you will do it now, right? Yeah, right... ). Oh, but wait, I am hexing anyone who reads this post and then goes and outbids me.
BTW, I use the same user name pretty much everywhere. "I ain't hidin' from nobody. Nobody's hidin' from me."
