Hey, I was multi tasking today, did a little stripping, defrosted the refer, did some laundry, now I'm kicking back in the cockpit enjoying some coffee myself.


Condition were much better today, 5-7 knot inside and about 10-15+ outside the point

1955 Blanchard 51 Custom ( I got a woody )

1974 Ranger 33


Lord, give me coffee to change the things I can change and Rum to accept the things I can't

Re: Dinghy - are West Marine any good ?

Had an Aakron PVC boat that lasted for 8 years when the glue on the seams went. Except for the seams that weren't reparable, it looked like new. Went with a West Marine Hypalon RIB350 in 2012. We take good care of our equipment and this dinghy has been covered about 50% of the time. It's now 2015 and it looks like hell. We can't get it clean and the tape over the seams is peeling up. We had a small puncture in one of the pontoons and took it to be repaired professionally. The tech told us that the peeling we're seeing is typical and won't affect the overall performance. So far it doesn't seem to be a problem. The good news is that it looks so bad that no one would want to steal it... the bad news is that it looks so bad that it's an embarrassment!
