Re: Good Deck Shoes?

Jack Purcell sneakers, smooth treadless bottoms.
Very seldom wear them off the boat; when I do, don't have to worry about picking up debris.
Traction when wet is better than when dry.

Re: Yamar 2gm not winterize

Agree with Jeff (and others)…
What did you contract with the yard to do?
Then talk with the yard and find out what they did and how they did it.

Re: Lets get some good sunrise/sunset pictures....

Boomb…

Thanks for sharing.

Re: recommendations for halyard attachment??
