Heeling

I Wen't Under A Bridge In Light Wind And Forgot To Put My Keel Down. When Coming Out The Other Side A Powerful Gust Of Wind Heeled Me About 45 Or 50 Degrees And I Turned In A Complete Circle. I Read Later That Is The Way Swing Keel Boats Do. They Are Very Hard To Knock Down. I Have A Macgregor Venture 22 And Have Heeled It Over Frighteningly Far But Never Had A Knockdown. I Have Seen Water Through The Cabin Window.

Why do we have decorative dog pics on this thread? Just curious...

Proper "Mop Dog" technique

When you jam that mop handle in his butt, the resulting thrashing will very effectively sop up a lot of water. However, be sure to clip the dog's nails first or you will get scratches on the sole.

Yes, but those nails are also good for bottom cleaning -- cheaper than hiring a diver.
