Re: Annoying chat menu on smartphone - how to disable it?

OK. What about a hinged acrylic panel? You can head into any shop and they'll shape one out for you no problem. Just one piece of 3/16 maybe, have them heat the parts that need bending to attach it...

Sorry about that, I thought for sure he was joking. I can't imagine doing any of those items to my own boat. A smoke bomb or pepper spray? Seems dangerous and excessive in my own peaceful way.
