Re: Looking for any ideas ( Diesel smell & wood )

Detergents mixed with HOT water will eventually 'emulsify' the oil. Dawn is a good one and wont weaken the wood cells nor the cellulose.

This has got to be one of my faves:

Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013

I vehemently (if that is a strong enough word) disagree with that. In fact, for me, that is the crux of the matter on this thread.

If something happens to one of the crew or the boat, the captain...

Re: Need answer to something I've always Wondered About

Not gonna work. Your lungs are not strong enough to suck air very far under anyway. Needs to be pressurized. That is why people use hookahs.
