Also, do you keep the Fortress
assembled full time? If so, where do you store it so it's ready to use on short notice as Cheechako mentioned?
Not meaning to steal the thread of course
thought it is related enough...
Fair winds and peaceful anchorages!..
Hey my Pleasure. Anchor
drills are just as important as field dressing a weapon. It will be ready to use when you need it most semper fi did I just say that ? oh well once a Jarhead Always a Jarhead . A prudent Mariner constantly monitors the conditons, and acts accordingly think its time to reef ?? Reef heck put in two its easier to take one out than put one in. Anchoring
is the same feel like you may need another? Get it out now! It will be good practice if you end up not having to use it.
