Bene505 Hardcore or certifiable you decide.

Jan 9, 2011 Long Island Sound, No wetsuit. Diving on boat to check zinc.
Of course he wasn't completely alone.

My dick is shrinking just looking at those pictures.
Come on bene, you have tweaked the wi-fi on your boat but still haven't figured out how to put a webcam in a plastic bag and duct tape it to the end of a boat hook to check your zincs by remote?

It actually wasn't that cold. Oh, it was cold first getting in, but my legs heated the water going up before it got to any critical areas. Actually, I planned the clothing carefully and brought a couple towels and a complete change of clothes. Note the turtleneck and the wetsuit hood.

Interesting thing is that I couldn't dive as soon as I got into the water. There was a lot of trapped air in my clothing that I had to let excape first. (I got in slowly with the caveat that I could chicken-out if I wanted. I jumped back in so David could take a picture.)

Back at home I noticed a smudge of bottom paint on the back of the wetsuit hood.

And the zinc looked good. 80% of it is still there and it's not loose.

Regards,
Brad

Ok, seriously, Bene....... what was the point of wearing a jacket underwater? That's what's going to get you committed.

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

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.
