The joke is on me. Ditzy, paranoid me. What a great analogy, or is a pun, the heeling motion. Got it. Guess I'm the one who put a bad connotation. Thanks for correcting me. I love it. Now I will rename the picture and give you the credit. Too funny. And boy, I needed a good laugh tonight.

I was not being negative, I was just saying that I thought she made the comment due to the fact that your heels are in the middle of the picture.  Hence the "heeling" multihull

I'm sure I get it too. There are those who use sarcasm either in good humor or to be mean  My guess is you both sail leaners. Enough negativity I have a lot to do to get my boat ready for a big adventure.

Don't worry Veranda, we get it LOL

Hi Verando,

It could be the camera was not level. Even still all boats, even cruise ships have some angling. On my 1200 mile voyage from Guatemala to Palm Bay Florida no one ever spilled a drink!

I thought multihulls didn't heel....

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
