paint ?

What would make you feel better? Personaly paint doesnt do it for me. I say sail. Who cares what the deck looks like as long as it holds you up.

That's always the problem.. a good sailing day is usually a good work day... decisions, decisions.....

Decks. This way you don't have to make a decision every time a good day comes.

Re: Should I sail or finish the decks......

Speaking as someone whose had his boat un-sailable for a month (fingers crossed all back together this weekend) I say sail wait for the paint until some other project demands you can't leave the dock.
