This is important information. Please repost it to every sailing site, esp. around the PNW were I sail. I need a cheap berth when I come in after a hard day of sailing. In fact, I might even say Arrgggh!

Ohhh dear. I was trying to inject some levity into a not so funny subject. You do realize that Sea Lions jumping onto boats uninvited is a very serious act of attempted piracy..... :big grin:

Sprung. You have got my number. Scaring off all the other boaters so I can get a slip easily and hopefully see the prices come down. At least I tried.

Your attempt failed due to your mistake in linking, but I think the thread would have made it down the same path eventually
