We returned to Northport from a cruise
and as I was cleaning
up and getting ready to leave the boat I discovered a 4 or 5" x 1/4"Ø stainless steel
bolt on the deck
port side just aft of the mast
and partially under a the leading edge of one of the solar panels
which live on the deck
I didn't recognize the bolt.. and for the life of me could not figure out what it was from or how it got there. Of course I did a cursory inspection
but found nothing.. not part of the down wind
pole or any thing at deck level... I sent someone aloft to examine the radar
and its mounting and he saw nothing either.
It's not as if I don't know the boat well... I have owned it for 28 years...
Where could it have come from???? And how did it get there?
