Re: Jeanneau or Catalina

Re: The number one way to wreck your boat

I power wash. 5 months in the Tennessee River = 1.5 inches of East Tennessee "Ew." But that's the hull, not the deck, and I've only got one thru-hull to be concerned with.

I've been out on Smithville lake 3 - 4 times. Twice in a '66 Sea Snark. And twice in a square - rigged Norse Knarr!

That's one way to look at it. Another way is that other than tourism, they have just about no economy at all. Not much incentive to cut fueler-uppers a break there.

"If I had a boat
I'd go out on the ocean
And if I had a pony
I'd ride him on my boat
And we could all together
Go out on the ocean
Me upon my pony on my boat."
