Don't forget the turning off the stove/oven thing.

Marin don't bring no kids aboard boat. So, in this case of a "Marin-mystery"... you can take that age group right out of the equation.

Personally, I do care what happened; in that: With Marin's unusually prolific word-art capabilities I feel he should feel compelled to clearly provide/explain items and instances of the occurrence so other boaters can learn and better grow toward added safety procedures... it's only right!

It is incumbent upon old-salts (and, new-salts) to help other salts learn what to do as well as what not to do in emergency situations.

Marin, Marin... come out, come out wherever you are. Please explain circumstances to us salts.
Thanks! - Art

Perhaps it will cool down now for a couple of days while the "kids who would not be on Marin's boat" scurry off to the GB forum to scour the archives.


Nice the boat had the consideration to F U in Bellingham bay and not Hecate Strait.

Marin,

As a GB owner, I'm concerned that there is a demon hiding on board that I should be searching out. Could you send me a PM describing what I should keep an eye on? Thanks, Howard

Greetings,
Mr. A. Mr. Marin posted a comment which, in my mind, is EXACTLY the same as your post #246. Time to move on. Keep Rescue Tape on board and for the life of me IF I could only remember a technique or invention I had used in the past, I'd post it now if only to get the thread back on track....

Yo, RT - Why don't you apply to be a moderator... seems you'd be more fulfilled!

Don't drill into your refrigerator to attach door latches or hold down brackets. I have a boater friend that turned his new refrigerator freezer into scrap metal. Seems the mfg are running freon lines around the door perimeters to alivate condensation, if you hole it they are not repairable.

Back on track... for RT - of course!

Use 4oz ZDDP in every oil change for classic gasoline engines having NO catalytic converter and WITH flat tappets! Then add another 4oz 1/2 way between oil change. Zinc has been greatly reduced or even completely removed from engine oils. It is a greatly needed barrier-film for older model engines. They were designed to run with zinc in the oil-lube

I get a queasy feeling in my stomach any time drill, boat and/or motorcycle are used in the same sentence.

Good point, Bill! I did mine with the knowledge that I might hit something, so I went slow. Fortunately, it was clear behind the two panels. I got lucky!

Polar bear tubes!

For those of you that use an ice chest for drinks etc this is a great idea! We've been freezing 1 gallon jugs, but this is pretty slick:

Rescue Tape is great for any form of pipe. We keep some at home as well.

Another product that I recommend having or having something similar to it is Stay Afloat.

Stay Afloat Emergency Leak Sealant

I've been told by experienced people I trust that it will patch as they say. There are some commercial products similar to that but I can't find them at the moment.

See, now that "Stay Afloat" looks to me to be exactly the same thing as a toilet bowl wax gasket, only at 10x the price.

I have a couple of these in large ziplocs and I'm pretty sure that they will work as well as, or better than, the expensive stuff.

I had previously removed those metal caps to repaint them and knew there were no such evils lurking behind the surface but your point is a good one.

I think the Stay Afloat has more flexibility and more uses. They may be similar materials.
