The crew are in good shape. The boat sank because the boat that was towing her, lost he, because the wire broke. The weather and waves were too hard for towing.

The tide is hardly measurable in Skagerrak (the waters between Norway, Denmark and Sweden) about 50 centimeters.
Anyway, Tjaldur sank in the Bay of Biscay the 30. november 2008.

You really drove that boat up hard to get her onto shore like that. You
should have let the tide come up a bit first. (grin)

does it matter which 6pak you use? are you pouring something like coors light into the drink to satisfy the bottom gods?
or is the bass ale or pilsner urquell for the pipefitter?
inquiring minds want to know. afterall, i'm all about pleasing the gods and creating good boat karma...
however..come to think about it, wouldn't pouring coors light be considered an insult...
"what do 'making love' in a canoe and coors light have in common?"*
ain't she purty?..slippery bottom and ready to run...
*"they are both f@#king close to water"....

if you have more than say... a 40, it'll end up looking like this

I don't see where the six-pack comes in...unless it is for mental lubrication during the assembly process. Hint...leave the bulk of it for afterwards or your brush may be assembled somewhat incorrectly.

you could make a decent boat brush out of the home depot catalog...
16 ft of 2" plastic pipe
can of pipe glue
one or two - 2" plastic pipe elbows (depending on boat hull)
one 2" plastic pipe "tee"
3- 2" plastic pipe end caps
3 cans of spray foam
1- astro-turf floor mat
hacksaw and at least a six-pack of your favorite beverage
I'm going to assume you know how to glue plastic pipe
cut 2 pieces of the pipe 16" long
put one end cap on each piece fill with foam, attach each piece to the "tee". again, fill with foam.
cut another piece approx. 36 inches long (this will depend on how wide your boat is) place into "tee", fill with foam.
depending on your dock space and the design of your hull, you'll either use one or two 45 degree elbows.
finish off the handle, and fill with foam.
cut and wrap the astro-turf around the business end and tie wrap in place.
The foam will give it some "upward" pressure, so you lazy or crippled twits can get decent results.
