RE: Quality Rain Gear

That's why we have motor boats.
If it rains , stay inside with a brew or a warm cuppa.
Don't go out until the rain stops.
If it is warm go out in your bathers as long as you don't scare the kiddies.

LOL.* So you never go out?* I thought it did nothing but rain up there?

That is the reason we very seldom leave the dock.**We see no reason to take the boat, tie to another dock and then*sit.* May as well stay tied to our dock and save the cost of fuel and docking fee.**Bersides we live on it 24/7.*

Our Trawler*come form California and was NOT*PNW rain proof.**The first winter we had to wear rain gear inside the boat.* My advise is to buy a boat in the dead of winter, not in the middle of summer.*
