Re: remove cove stripe - yeah or nay

Thanks for the photos and comments, and yes, also planning on going with a grey bottom this winter. Still like the idea of the cleaner look, i.e., no cove stripe.

End of season tipping

Is it common to tip marina staff at the end of the season, esp. deckhand(s), mechanic, yard manager, and if so, how much?
