No fair! I woke up to a balmy 11* with an expected high of 18* today. All part of God's plan... "Let's see -- they can have perennial great weather BUT to keep it even, I'll also give them Paris Hilton and Governor Schwarzenegger..." TGIF

I might do that!

I like the idea of doing the cabin with indoor outdoor carpet cut to fit. Who'dathunk?

Oh yeah... and you don't have to varnish it
Yep!!

Don't you just hate global warming?

Maybe the Northwest passage will be reopen this year.

Just think of all the fuel that will save.

I would have never considered carpet on a cruising boat but two years ago I saw a 70 something footer with wall to wall in the main salon...no smell..a couple stains....but all in all in good shape.
The captain said it had been in for over 8 years....
