Come on Marin... spill the beans. No matter what may have happened it shouldn't be held secret. Everything we as a group learn helps many to best continue with safe boating.


If there is one item we all understand about you it is that you can write. Therefore you can clearly explain what happened and what you did in crisis. Taint nothing to be ashamed of... no matter what it was.

Come on, Ted! It's obvious what happened but Marin is too embarrassed to talk about it.

Here's what I added to my fridge. It looks nautical and operates very smoothly with one hand once you get used to it being there.



Another BIG for Rescue Tape. I shamed Ray and Craig into buying some at a Sportsman's Show a couple of years ago. It's always extra special to watch my friends spending their money. At least they were buying something worthwhile for their boats. (I also talked 'em into some really great knife sharpeners!)

I enjoy the hell out of shopping shows and nautical swap meets with Cpseudonym. We find some of the best deals. At the latest one, I spied some Rescue Tape - two rolls for $2 - before Craig got to the booth. I snatched that right up. Score!!

Walt I'm not part of the Marin fan club. Just know it really sucks when people pile on when you're already down. I give him credit for having posted it to begin with. Not sure I would have so soon after.

I will say this and then I'm done. It wasn't operator error. It wasn't hitting something in the water. We're not embarrassed as we could not have foreseen it happening. It was one of those things I'd heard about on the GB forum years ago and then it happened to us yesterday.

I just have no interest in writing up a fairly long chain of events that will simply baffle most people here and they'll go on and on with all sorts of rubbish that's irrelevant to the incident.

So one last time---- get Rescue Tape and keep it in a handy place. The boat it saves may be your own.

I didn't. I was making a point about how great Rescue Tape is in a thread about techniques, tools, etc. and that we put it to good use and everyone else started blathering on and on.

One other thing I forgot and that I will bring up. Hat's off to my wife who through the whole incident did a superb job of running the boat plus getting me what I needed including.... the Rescue Tape. And assisting with a tricky docking in a tight spot on the yard dock on one engine in the wind. And no, the problem had nothing to do with the engine.

Well, to continue talking about what you're not going to talk about will garner you much attention. Probably best if you just stop replying, no?

Maybe your dog could put it in terms we lowly mortals could understand.

Hmmm...rescue tape plus wooden plugs, accidentally break off a thruhull while working on the stuffing boxes?

Even if Marin does finally post what happened, I shall respect his privacy by refusing to read it!

Greetings,
I don't care what happened. Mr. Marin, Ms. Marin and vessel are safe. Keep rescue tape on board and make sure the kids go to the bathroom before you leave the house.
