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.

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.
