Re: Wood vs. Metal Blinds

We ordered metal a few years ago. They have started to rust. Next time, I'll order faux wood to avoid warping.
My soul is full of longing for the secret of the sea,
and the heart of the great ocean sends a thrilling pulse through me.

Re: Wood vs. Metal Blinds

we're almost done with a lot of major renovations on our boat... Wooden blinds are now close to the top of our "to do" list.... The ones we have now are metal.... Our new ones WILL be wooden.....
