That's only true if they said "Marine" Shingles on the package.

Right. Ship on a Shingle brand. West Marine has them. But they aren't cheap.

Great Neptune, I cannot believe i am even discussing improving the viability of roofing a sailboat.
Of course you can jones, of course you can. Look, winter is just around the corner, the boat is ready to be packed up for the year and you'll have bugger all to do with yourself other than goof around here or watch internet porn.

you are of course too old for internet porn , so ......

One does wonder why though doesn't one ? Look at the leading edge of those things .... man, that is rubbish, even I could do better than that should I be so inclined. Thankfully my dementia is not so far advanced and yep there had to be an easier way to make a complete hash of that job.

WM does price match, if you can find ship shingles cheaper elsewhere.

Exactly, he could have at least used roll roofing or torch on sheeting and done a neat job of it.

I dunno - that sounds like it has some implications in it.

I'll take a rum though. I'd take a rum on that boat for that matter.

No holding tank so just be sure you're beyond the pail. As an aside , I carry sheets of lead in the bilge and roofing nails to apply as I live in the land of rocks If you can get your holed glass beyond the low tide line you'd be glad of your stash of torch on bits so you can bail and tow to repair. (never had to use the lead but I believe in redundancy)

I don't know about that idea, SloopJonB. He might look down his nose at you if you don't own a boat.

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

Time is the only real judge of a man's efforts...

The winter rains didn't manage to get enough water in to sink the boat...I had to inquire about the colorful bubble wrap around the other boat...It seems that one of the barges that are just out of camera range tends to come adrift and bang around in the bay...https://www.dropbox.com/s/zniminn4nn...P3271979.JPG?m
