The Futzing Continues

The ongoing fixing jobs continue. Tonight I had the help of Buddy out there. At 4 years old he is good for holding screws and playing with the tape measure, and he can climb the ladder on his own now - its just like at the park!

Not a lot of excitement in the projects tonight. I did a repeat of the light installation for the port side, and Put in a pair of one inch "Clipper Clips" on starboard to hold the boathook in place. I had only bought these to push an order over $100 and get free shipping, but now I am pretty happy with them. They should make life easier when I am on final approach to a butt-puckering situation and need a boathook stat!

Today when that happens the order of operations is:
  1. Oh crap.
  2. Chuck go get a boathook before we hit that ______________
  3. Dad where is it?
  4. Did you check in the quarterberth?
  5. Yes
  6. Did you check in the vee berth?
  7. Yes
  8. Did you check the pin rails - nevermind.
  9. CRUNCH!!
Hopefully now the boathook will have a home and stay there. I may get a second set of clips for the other hook, and mount it on the port side. I need to get a camera out there again to take some photos.
