I so cringe when I see otherwise great boats like this. Yes you HOPE it was only pulled into a slip like this for pictures, but the view you get tells a less hopeful story.
My gosh I didn't sleep at night when I first put my boat in the slip... 4 lines, 2 spring lines, and there was a nail sticking up on the dock at the bow... I had to go with a hammer to hammer it down the very next day.
My "imagination" got the best of me... this tiny 6d nail turned into a 20d SPIKE pointed at my bow! I laughed so hard when I went to "pound" it in... it broke in half with no swing at all (the boat would have crushed it, and it would have broken)...
Of course the boat couldn't reach it. But when I see pictures like this I cringe.
Glad to see it isn't just me.
Also, how many of you, passing this boat, would at least try to tighten the lines to move the bow back? I know, "touching someone else's boat."
Poor guy, he's just trying to sell his boat and I am being bad. Sir/maam if you read this, please, please, we really just wanna help.
