Hi Craig,

Welcome to SeaKnots. This is a great website for sailors but unfortunately participation is not what it once was but we can always change this part by inviting our friends. Take care and hope you meet some kewl people here.

Wanted to say hello and make new friends with hopes to sail the world :)

I'm new to the site and just finding myself around. Looking forward meeting others and finding my way back to sea.

Wow nobody has been here for awhile and a long while. I wanted to say hello and love to meet people. I love sailing and I am a sailor with a disability but no less capable smiles. I hope to see more activity here and fair winds and following seas

Knocking the cobwebs off of this page.  January is almost over and I'm dreaming of the upcoming sailing season.  My boat is in Curtice, Ohio (east of Toledo on Lake Erie) and I'm looking forward to spending a lot of time on the water.  Hope to see some of you out there!

Landlocked in eastern WA but working my way west as soon as I am able.  In the mean time I go out with the local yacht club when I don't have a photo shoot taking up my weekends.

Teak seat metal protrusions

All knowing list....I have a new question.My boat is 9 years old now, and the teak seats are beginning to have metal "brads" sticking up out of the teak. My teak has weathered, as I am of the  natural teak camp, not varnishing or oiling heavily. Has anyone else seen this? Did Beneteau use brads of some sort along with the mastic? I plan on taking a small grinding bit on my dremel tool and touching each one until they are no longer standing proud, then do a little light sanding. Thoughts and…See More
