Is it safe to assume he's doing this in his garage? That takes me back to my first boat - when boating was simpler and cheaper . . . don't miss trailering though.

pigslo Part of the reason you are enjoying it so much is the chemicals in the Paint you are scraping off while you lay on your back are effecting your brain. We call these chips of paint "paintdorphins"

sailingdog You only enjoyed that so much since it wasn't your money paying for it.

Hey Parttime,
Well if you found it you already know, we are/our house is a mile from the lake right up by the National Park. This is Dune country. Nice marina at Michigan City is only about 10 miles, but we dock our boat up in Holland. Its a lot prettier up that way.

sailortjk1 I remeber when it was fun, dad had me sanding down the bottom, I was 16 didn't know any better, must have breathed to much of that stuff, never been the same. It was either that or all the alcohol.
