Here's a Face Book friend with her pet. If I was to pet this pet I'll
bet my blood pressure would go UP. And yes I know he's a alligaror and
not a dog.

Right spacing?

Dog watch.
This is a one stop shop do all pet that can swim . Not sure if it can retrieve a ball.


If you wish to keep thieves off you boat all you *may need to do is cross a 13 ft *Alligator with a Greyhound *it will do 100 mph in the corners .


The clone did not work on Mondays and wanted overtime.


To keep the bad guys of my boat i have been forced to install a non lethal WW11 French booby trap.


The smartest man on earth is not the man who know allot, but the man *who knows where he can find it out.

RE: Right spacing?

No pets? No kids? Y'all will definitely never want to raft up with us!!

Seriously- I love dogs and all but I really wanted to wait- we have our hands full as it is with the kids. But i'll be darned if last summer my wife and daughter run to the grocery store and come home not only with groceries, but a dog as well! Fortunately for her (perhaps unfortunately for me), she is darn cute- too cute to have not them keep her. But alas, she is scared to death of the boat it seems. She is fine as long as the engine is not on but crank up that engine and by golly she shakes like no tomorrow. She sheds like crazy too. Arg. I keep wanting to make her walk the plank but my wife will have nothing of the sort. So- I gotta figure out how to get a dog to not be scared of the motor noises and if my wife will let me I may shave her bald so she won't shed but I have a feeling my wife will not let me do that. She is cute though- here she is on the boat celebrating my wife's birthday with us late last summer.

RE: Right spacing?

Interesting how threads will evolve.* Certain threads, like this one,*I don't initially*pay any attention to since the subject is of*no interest to me.* Neverthless, when such threads run for several pages, I check the most recent posts to see if the subject has changed to something interesting.* Like this thread, moving from grommet locations to children and pets.

Right spacing?

You guys "kill" me.*<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="genmed"><tbody><tr><td width="100"></td><td width="40"></td></tr></tbody></table>

Actually, the thread has turned more interesting.* Maybe soon we'll have arguments over whose grommet is the biggest or holds (heels?) the best.* Surely, that's more interesting than anchors.

RE: Right spacing?

Lee Boards.

i checked my lee boards on our boat today *just for you .
The top rail grommets spacing was 4" *and also allowing for the vertical stantions.

The brass grommets were small and laced with thin *parachute cord, *or what ever you *wana call it .


At the bottom of the skirt / lee board *there is a 1.5" *sewn fold to accommodate a 1 " x *3 /16 " *aluminum metal *flat bar that encompassed the lower perimeter.


Several "L" brackets *made from the same stock were used to attach the lower bar to the deck, the bar was curved at the corners.



Our "mesh lee boards" were reinforced with" strata glass" so to avoid the grommets *pulling out , this is requisite.


Special Note :- *Lee boards can offer a *great resistance to the wind and need to be strong.


We went out for an all day cruise to day and got a little sun burnt , it was 72 degrees and flat calm.


Is it legal to fly a kite from a boat ?


Donald & *Mavis.
Just for a moment we were thinking of you all

It depends on the government jurisdiction.* For example, in Germany it is prohibited unless expressly permitted while in the U.S. it is permitted ulnless expressly prohibited.

I don't know if it is legal or not, but kite flying is listed as "not covered" in our marine insurance...*
