I didn't even know I had them for about a month after I bought the boat. You're so right! They really reduce the water that wants to climb the hull.

Before I sold out my partnership in my old company, we had a Cessna Citation that was painted with Imron and it was fantastic! Lasted a long time and still looked good when we sold the plane.

I think the boat is nice...but not immaculate.
Heresy! Heresy, I say. (The only thing wrong with her has been pointed out by both Flywright and myself several times).

It's safe to say that (he is not allowed in your marina) as he is far, far away on the East coast. But watch out! At his Maine built superior speed, he could be there in a couple of days, even if he had to round the Horn in bad weather.

Under the cover of darkness Moonstruck has been known to pull into harbors when least expected.

Absolutely no question about that, having seen it in person.

Walt: It's torture looking at the condition of your Gormet 32. I haven't a single square inch of my hull that out-shines your bottom paint. I hate ya.

In the interest of fairness perhaps Walt needs a chance to redeem himself from this oversight. Al should revisit the crime scene and see if this most heinous breach of protocol has been properly addressed.

I can only imagine what an ordeal it must have been.

But at least San Diego Bligh allowed my woman to have sustenance, so he has some heart (or was he afraid that without antifreeze she'd freeze to death on that cold February SoCal day after he'd enticed us to the Left Coast with promises of sun and warmth?).

To Walt's credit, I did revisit the scene of the crime and yes, he did redeem himself. I can't find the link now, but there was a bottle of JD and some IPAs in the fridge. Cpseudonym will probably find it. As a matter of fact, I sent Walt an email last night asking for pics of a well stocked fridge to post to salvage his rep. Here's a quote:

"PS. That table spread while taking a fishing break looked top shelf. Got any pics of your fridge? It might help salvage your sullied reputation which I’m now sorry I contributed to."

I haven't heard back. He's probably still looking for a pic.

Beachbum, here's where it all started back in 2011.
