Stan-

Photographing the good side of your work... and they say photographs don't lie. Must get a fair bit of heat from the "greenhouse" effect under the shrinkwrap. Did you install vents as well??

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I bought vents and if I had done a good job and produced anything remotely close to an airtight enclosure I would have used some. Not even close. The sloppy areas around the masts and stays provide more than enough ventilation for the rising hot air. Next year I'll extend the bows a few inches outboard of and below the stanchions to create a better wind seal but also to allow air in low and add vents in the upper section if needed.

LOL, well, think of the money you saved on the vents this year... now you can save them for next year.

Only done Deaths Door on a Ferry boat. Planning to go thru this year with a circumnavigation on the penninsula.
Yes we are in Egg Harbor. Come on up!!! It's a small municipal dock so call well ahead to reserve slip space. (pretty easy during the week)

I was thinking more along the lines of a coordinated bashing of those damned cheap Porto boats!!!!

With a good wifi connection we can do our bashing while sitting in the cockpit with a cocktail!!
