I've been hanging around for a while now, commenting occasionally (sometimes when I shouldn't), and reading a lot. Subject lines that suggest helpful information, others that just catch my eye. All sorts of topics.
And now that I suddenly find myself owning a boat
, I also find that I've learned quite a bit. Doing a final checkout today before moving her to another marina* I was able to do things that I wouldn't have had a clue about a year ago. (Stuffing box? What's a stuffing box?)
So, here's to us. The previous owner included a bottle of bubbly in the sale
; I'll raise a toast to you all.
* The move: not crossing oceans yet. It's a 25 nm motor
up the Saint Lawrence River.
