Iím not okay with spiders. I can kinda deal with smaller ones, say less than the size of a quarter, but those big hairy ones are the stuff of nightmares for me. I turn into a white girl and Ďcanít even.í

For those of you cruising in warmer climes, like Florida, the gulf coast, and the Caribbean, how often do you encounter these many-legged spawns of Satan in the winter months? Do you ever get any big bastards on your boat?

Frozen North.. I hear you, oh yes I hear you!
During winter we do not have spiders obviously but in summer we have mosquitoes, flies, spiders and all sort of nice little bugs. But I am glad we have siders onboard, and if I could I would grow them as every evening they take out all these damned mosquitoes that found a way in!
