Welcome aboard and too bad about selling the boat. We are getting ready to put ours up for sale but we will be buying another, if we can find one.

Welcome aboard! Your experience is will be valued here. That is except for anchors. Never express an opinion on anchors. You will always be wrong.

The Grand Kids love visiting the boat. We have lots of room. And Myrtle beach SC HAS plenty to do to entertain .
They are girls 2 and 5 years old. Their daddy works in the Gulf of Mexico Master on a 300 ft platform supply vessel

Teak oil is made the same way Mink Oil is made. You kill the Teak and skin it. Then you scrape the fat from the Teak pelt. The fat is then rendered into Teak Oil.

Don’t mean teak oil. Teal oil is a petroleum dissolute never use it below decks fumes are terrible. I have teak decks and just let them turn a natural silver. Never been put anything on decks it’s a hardy wood just enjoy the teak

When you said your wife was 100 ton, I got worried, but I'm sure she's a fine woman.
