I agree, i did join in and make fun. Reality is he is prolly living aboard without care in the world. He surely isn't fretting over which non-skid to use!

Re: I'm truly at a loss for words...REALLY!

those roofing shingles make decent and inexpensive non skid--am surprised someone hadnt done this before--he looks warm and toasty and ready to sail and not die on the coach house roof--i wonder what he will place there after first major passage and how long the shingles last--could be a nonskid idea worth remembering.........

He put the horseshoe on the cabin door wrong way up. Other than that - uh - never mind.

He also painted a solid brass hatch black. If that was a ferro hull he'd have the full monty.

There's no place like home, Mr. Baggins. Inn't it?

I suppose if that's a wooden cabin house on the boat...wood house, shingle roof, makes it much easier to describe the boat to visitors. "Uh, it's a white boat with a white hull and a white deck, you can't miss it."

Re: I'm truly at a loss for words...REALLY!

The ports are installed like that so you don't catch your Rasta braids on the annoying little knobs and the rain doesn't splash off the deck into the cabin so much.There may be other reasons too.

I'm sure the grip is gonna be excellent! The only thing is, what happens when the sun heats up all that roofing tar! It's going to be EVERYWHERE! Hopefully he won't raft up to anyone and track it across their boats!
