Finally figured out how to navigate Sea Knots. Months ago I set up a profile and you commented. I have had a few articles published, was one of several who served as editor and reviewer for an education book, as well as edit articles and letters for colleagues. Currently, I have an idea for a Dr. Seuss style book and need an illustrator. I also need guidance on how to protect my work. If you have experience with getting copyrights and such let me know.

We've been crusing the east coast - got to Maine this year - and got as far south in the Bahamas as Warderick Wells. Will be doing more Bahamas exploring in the coming winter.

"Hi Scott and Mike,

"Thomas: Maybe you've already done this project.
Here's how I handled the same issue on my ol' 36, Koru.
Grind the surfaces, with 36 grit, about 4 inches back from the center of the joint. (angle grinder is quick, but messy).
"John, l received an email about a GoPro versus water proof cameras but it looks like the 40/43 site still wont share comments properly so here goes.
