Get a case of beer. Invite your friends over. Give them sandpaper. Now that's entertaining!

Good one, NOW I get it, looking at the link to Entertaining, it makes sense now. Maybe I'm getting that CRAFT disease.



Can't Remember A F****** Thing


So can you REALLY get people to do sanding for just a case of beer? Not bad duty!

Not if they drink the beer first.

Update

Haven't been at home much to use the computer and we don't have one on board....yet! We splashed a week and a half ago and had our first out of town company. Both heads had never given us a problem but the aft head blew two hours before they arrived. Said guest blew the forward head first time he used it. We discussed it and they gamely agreed to aqua poo. We had great weather, good diving and lots of fun! Much needed after the long summer in the boat yard. As an added benefit, my husband had help in fixing the head because the company was quite facinated by the whole process and I was thrilled to let the men work on it.

As to the beer luring friends to the boat yard for sanding. Good in theory but South Florida is hot and muggy this time of year and nobody lasted more than an hour or two. Myself? I freeze in airconditioning and have lost at least 8 pounds.
