Seafevers first new hole

My !^%^*^#^*##($($&&^*(_+()&)__ mooring neighbor had a motor problem and instead of getting a tow thought he would try his had a sailing into and TIGHT mooring field

Well it could have been worse BUT his bow pulpit punched a fist size hole right between the two main Portlights

Everybody at the yard thought somebody called me and we went out to go sailing and opened up the cabin to a nice pile of paint and glass shards


He is being good about it so far and we will see what the glass guy says this week





Unfortunately cracked and delaminated into the unobtainium window frame which will have to be disturbed to do a repair as there is a good bit of bad glass under the interior gelcoat

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

That sucks.
Those who think that an engine is not a safety device might want to pause and reflect.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:

Sympathies....... We've all arrived to a bad surprise sooner or later. From personal experience, the call you didn't get isn't much better.

Just got back doing the field report with the Suffolk PD

The guy is nice enough BUT i think will be in for a bit of a shock on the price glass work as out on the mooring with no electric my DIY options are pretty limited and it may have to stay duck taped till fall cause i am sure not gonna miss any sailing time right now

Sailers are sooo much friendler than my bunch , a feller comes skidding into park next to a line of bikes & knocks a few over he KNOWS he's in for an A$$ kicking how many depends on how many he knocked over lol , And then he pays for the damage needless to say ....no cops we self police

There is no right way to do the wrong thing
