Interesting,- You're in Oregon and I'm in Florida. "Heat Rod"?,- 'never heard of such a thing and I don't want one. I guess there are some geographic considerations to controlling boat stink!

Too right... our humidity comes in the winter with buckets of ice cold rain... GoldenRod - Dehumidifier Rods ... I can't recommend living in a place where this is needed, but if you must... I've heard tell of folk fighting condensation or mildew in the summer... huh? what!? BTW, where do you keep your Sorel Boots? Men's Outdoor Boots - Men's Outdoor Footwear | SOREL Footwear

Re: Live-Aboards that Commute To Work

around here generally marinas have horrible rates for parking. and some don't even have parking lots. my experience around here. you'd have to pick a marina that can handle having a car.

Interesting,- I had to use your link to find out what these were. Actually, I don't own anything that could be called boots. ....sandals, sneakers .... Oh, I forgot, I do have a pair of dive boots that fit with my wet suit!

It's good to recognize the different worlds we have as sailors and cruisers.
