Can you get one refaced so every day is Saturday? That would be useful for those who have already toss the lines...

When cruising (soon to be all the time) I only comb my hair on Thursdays.
Reminds me I no longer have to look "professional" and I get to keep track of the days of the week
Nothing worse than turning up at the swindelry to find it closed.
Cheers John

We've been cruising for three years now. Sitting in Bocas del Toro Panama right now. In the past three years there have only been a handful of times that I needed to know what day it was, and usually someone on the other end of the vhf radio would know. But cool clock anyway.

In the past three years that we've been cruising I can only recall a handful of times when I needed to know what day it was. Some of the important days was when making passages, don't want the officials to charge us overtime now do we? Usually someone on the other end of the vhf radio knows what day it is anyway. Cool clock though.

Got the clock mounted on a bulkhead inside the boat now.

If anything it is bigger and more overwhelming than I thought.
The ad said 9.5", but with the wood frame it is quite a bit more.

It would probably look a bit better in a bigger boat, but my 33 foot
cutter is kind of "petite" and could use a smaller day-clock.
Oh well, no clock is perfect and I may get used to it..If not it goes
in the house or on e-bay.

In the meantime I am not confused about which day of the week it is..

Yeah, you guys are right.

Unfortunatley some of us are still working stiffs and need to return to work certain days., hence the clock.

One of these days I will quit for good with enough money in the cruising kitty to avoid having to return as a Wal-Mart greeter when I am 70....

Playing lotto these days, and saving most of the pay check...There is a plan.....

I hope you hit it, DH, but one of the funniest things I ever read called lotteries, "A tax on the mathematically challenged!"

I've got the same clock, but it seems to be using the standard 12hr mechanism. At least that seems to be how fast the days go.
