When on the Gulf of Mex. I could just wash a wipe away 2 weeks of sea life. Not so on the Tennessee River. The growth was really thick and very difficult to remove. Sometimes I like leaving the dink in the water for a week or two.
I don't need more chaps than bottom paint if I'm in the shade.

Our uses are different.
Where you at on the TN now???

Then tape below the chalk line, wash off the chalk, and move your tape line up. Easy and fast. Obviously any wave action at all makes this impossible.
Yea... but have you priced Marine Chalk lately???

Re: Marking Waterline on Dink

Bottom paint on an inflatable seems to rub off on anything it comes in contact with. I don't think I'd do it again.

I am at Joe Wheeler St. Park in Rogersville, Al. prolly about 60 miles or so east of the Mississippi border.
We came from Texas, through La, Ms and up Mobile Bay into the Tenn-Tom and through Lake Pickwick in Ms. I'll guess that is where you are.

Regards

Sorry I didn't know about you when I went through there. We spent about 3 days there resting up and waiting on weather. We stayed at the big marina with the large Hotel/Condo/or whatever. We enjoyed the marina there.
Had to replace an alternator there and I think the town was Savannah, Tn.

I just realized that I have to update my profile. My "Location" is my current location since I don't plan on going back to Tx.

Notta worry!

So you were at Grand Harbor then... Definitely a nice place with some great facilities... I'm at Aqua, a stone's throw away in a MUCH calmer, less traffic corner... Savannah is the first larger 2 horse town North... Most assuredly where ya went...

We head East in the car once in a while to Muscle/Florence... If we do soon, I'll give ya a shout! Also there's some music shindig our sailing club friends go to thatta way... I'm not a good payer of attention sometimes, Or is that remember-er...

Oh hell...
