Hey TB...

when you clean your boat with that "*****" licker....my questions are:

1) does it leave fur all over???
2) Do its teeth scratch the gell coat?
3) do you clean in circular movements??


Now as for the Plant...I like it...the problem is does it like heeling and do they make them in Carbon Fiber.

Thanks

1) No, the hair on that breed of "***** licker" just keeps growing.
2) Only when I clutch her in my Makita polisher and set to high speed
3) see no. 2

The basil plant hates heeling, just like it's gardener - goes in the forward head sink under sail, sometimes with the gardener. Carbon Fiber basil? Now that's an interesting concept.

Healthy looking Basil Brush you have there. Must inform the Ms W, she will be beside herself. Life without Basil is not something that appeals. Me she could live without but fresh Basil ? No Way, Manuel. mmmmm Fresh tomato, drizzle of olive oil and some chopped fresh basil on toast, ground pepper. Breakfast of Wombats.

AB,
Parrot. Norwegian Blue. Sleeps a lot but lovely plummage.

We've got a ton of mint in our garden. Some of it will get potted and placed on the boat next summer for the same reason that Jason stated...Mojitos!!!

I wonder if they make a gimbaled flowerpot holder?
