I feel your pain!
Three years ago, after particularly rough passage
, I was hosing my boat down in my slip in Washington
, DC and noticed something lying atop my bimini
It was a stainless steel
pin. About 1/4" diameter and about 2" long. Just lying there in the middle of the bimini
That bloody pin has been driving me crazy for the past three years. I can't find where it came from, despite having gone over my rigging
numerous times. Everything works as it should. Everything is secure. No pins missing from the genoa
blocks on deck
(about the same size as the sliding Garhauer blocks I use). No pins missing from the blocks beneath the main boom.
I keep worrying that I'm missing something and one day the whole rig is going to come down on my head
Hope you have better luck in finding the source of your 'objects from above'.
