TrueBlue That's alright CAP, just after the heist, I secretly took half of your share and invested it all in Google stocks, you can have the Brazilian Cruzados .

Giulietta The good news:

The loot from that Brasilian Bank job we pulled together before you got arrested , well....I hide it in a secret compartment inside the keel of your Nauticat!!

The Bad News:

It was in Brasilian Cruzados, no good now!!

TrueBlue Oh, that's right CAP, I forgot it was you disguising yourself as an independantly wealthy sailor, living the good life in Portugal.

Now, where's all that money you still owe me from that deal we made 15 years ago?

Giulietta Good, understood, thank you for the explanantion, glad someone spend time educating the stupid foreigner!!

Still, I have a better idea for you. When the bad cold, snow season comes, just come over here, and save on the wraping!

camaraderie is the white plastic stuff you saw. One of the big problems in snow country is that the cockpit drains get blockd with ice and when the snow melts you get a flood down below and the ice is hell on your gel coat. Plastic wrap prevents this but also seals in moisture so you need to have sme ventilation through it. All in all...we'd rather wrap our boats than deal with the French!

Giulietta Cam,

Is it a white plastic cover? so the snow does not get in? I saw that in Connecticut, near Grotton.

I would assume its worse, to ecapsulate the boat in plastic, but since you are all doing it, then must be better.

Here, we don't even have to protect the boats from seagull dung!!! Only from crazy frenchmen!!

camaraderie Giu...shrink wrap is big sheets of thin platic that are used here to protect boats hauled out in northern winter climates. That's the "wrap" part. A heat gun is used to shrink the platic to fit tightly on the boat so no gaps exist and it doesn't flap in the wind.
Sometimes people get sealed into their boats and we don't find them till springtime!

TB what was the metal thing on your boat??? Decided she looks better as a party tent?
