Many of the paths are well trodden, as you say, but we still would like to see your pictures of the scenery. One man's crooked branch is another man's hanging knee, after all.

Welcome to the club of the boat struck and enslaved. It can be hell some days, but we all have the pleasure of saying we chose it freely (if sometimes also naively).

When do you anticipate splashing, and where is your back yard relative to, say, a large body of salt water?

Hi Randall. Would you call struck and enslaved a man living on his Mariner in his yard 50' away from a perfectly habitable mobile home ? Well ,I have a mind to agree.

Joy is in a neiborhood under the airstrip of NASP , and say 5 miles from the splash zone. ( which happens to be a name brand of an excellent 2 part puddy epoxy, and marine applicable )

Joy is on stilts here and she has a 3/4" water line and a 30A line run to her. It's almost like the real thing, until you open the companion way and walk down a flight of stairs and realize you're not under the water line. Her drain plug is unscrewed and sitting on a creosote block , one of four that's taking her weight.

Maybe she'll get wet this year. pics soon.
