Nothing. That should be the end of this thread.

Having never seen one, my thoughts would be it should be able to swing for and aft and if on a sailboat side to side
I get knocked down...But get up again...
You're never going to keep me down....

A 14-foot mini-cruiser is minimalist. A 19ft is comfortable, and anything much larger than a 25 borders on ostentatious.

Re: Aquarium on a boat

For years , I kept Bettas in fish bowls at each of 16 portholes on my 65ft sailboat. They were in macrame hangers , which kept them on an even keel. I fed them exclusively on mosquitoes that got stuck to the screens covering the ports, caused by the suction of the fan in my midship's hatch fan.

Cruising on a boat you're living in an aquarium. Trying to contain all that water with the motion of a boat does not seem like the most sensible choice of pet environment.

Extraneous topic not sailing related. Thread closed.

If your attitude resembles the south end of a bull heading north, it's time to turn around.
