Christmas Lights 2007

Looked around for a thread on sailboat pictures with Christmas lights -- I could not find one. Anyways, I got tired of always fixing stuff and for stuff in line to be fixed, so I took a break and decorated my boat with lights this weekend. Anyone else decorated their boat? Anyone else have Christmassy Sailboats to Share?

We're decorated our for the past 3 or 4 years. I will say it looks great, BUT! I'm really thinking I may not do it again. Trouble is, I spend so much time chasing and replacing bad strings of lights, blown circuits, lights wrapping on stays, etc, etc... And to top it off, I can't pick up and go sailing with all that stuff on the boat, in the rigging, and all. Drives me crazy. Makes the wife happy though so guess what I'll probably be doing again next year!
