Easy, just use two of your biggest headaches to alleviate the third. Just hand him something that vibrates from electrical energy and tell him "go take care of yourself, I have a headache".

Re: As Far as Boats are Concerned What are Your 3 Biggest Headaches ?

Anything on the engine. The access is so horrible. It's like trying to service your car with the hood closed and access is only through the radiator grill. It doesn't help that I'm 6ft 5". Access to the transmission is through the starboard lazarette. But I don't fit in there. Anyone know a very small mechanic?

Well,,er,,um, maybe if you think that would work for him. I was thinking more along the lines of Hitachi's "Magic Wand". Also good for deep muscle massage.

Hand him a wire off the batteries and you can charge them and taser him at the same time.
Now that's multitasking... then go check your zincs.

Re: As Far as Boats are Concerned What are Your 3 Biggest Headaches ?

My three biggest headaches...
neighbors banging halyards
neighbors improperly grounded boats and stray current messing up my boat
neighbors having parties till 4 am. Even though I walked over and taped a copy of the marina rules to his hull with the loud noises and lights out section highlited.

Oh, is this supposed to be about my boat? I spend too much time cussing about neighbors to worry about that. haha
