We can all agree on that can't we?

MY bucket - honored be its memory
How can you be so insensitive. When my bucket and I came to an end, we both agreed. Life had become dull and uninteresting. I found myself looking at other buckets and to my shock I once found my bucket in the hands of another sailor. I stood there dumb-founded but unmoved by it. I knew it was time.
We had many pleasant experiences together. Cleaning the boat, bathing together and doing those other things we do in private. But alas, it was over. I was no longer excited about her and I know the feeling was shared.
We agreed and after one glance cast back, smiled as I walked away from her on the picnic table and strolled back to my vessel. Not long after I saw a Hunter sail out of the harbor...and there....there hanging out in the sun on the aft deck was her...Shiny and smiling into the sun as they sailed out together on a new adventure. Adour, adour my love for we had a good time together. I will forget you not

Re: Buying, Fixing, and Equipping a Monohull

when one of my 6 buckets grew tired of its regular handle of steel, i made it a rope handle and extended its life----when they hole, i make em into flopper stppers or whatever i need to use a holed bucket for (as opposed to holy bucket, which is the sunday bucket)

Re: Buying, Fixing, and Equipping a Monohull

I have a soft bucket......for when I need to cuddle.

I have a hard bucket for when I don't want to be near the soft bucket.

Only if your buckets have agreed to an open relationship. It's all about trust.

And make sure you plan properly - You could end up with a bunch of unwanted cups...

Well...You know how it is...When they're bored and tired of you, anything flashy and new looking will do. They care little of the integrity.

Sad about your relationship with your old bucket. It seems that she may have become fickle and floated away over the horizon? How long before it is reciprocated I wonder? By the way, I had a look at your blog ... I like the dodger and the solar panels.

Thank you...I really have to put more effort into that blog. Is just that I'm so distraught over my last bucket loss.
