I just saw the new awlgrip color chart. They have added "hot pink" and "soft pink". Now look what you've started "sailorchick34" It won't be long before the marinas look like an NFL game.

One.. welfare? I know this is old but really? Two, if you for a moment researched her bio... you'd know she was the real deal. You are an avid poster here... well aware of how to research a captain of her ship.. and she is owned kudos in this thread. Not calling just you out with your exp. but many have done so unfairly.

I have absolutely no idea where the quote you used for the above is in this thread or any idea what it could be about. I went back a page and it wasn't there so it is further back in the discussion.
