"Just finished Fool by Christopher Moore. I think it's one of his best. Laugh out loud. He's a great break from the Robert Crais and T Jefferson Parker and John Sandford that I've been reading."

"Reggie, see Mary's reply to my post one page back. I think that pretty much would apply to your draft as well."

"Your draft should not be a problem on the ICW, but do stay within the channel. The flow from small inlets can sometimes silt up the channel so watch the charts and be careful when you come to these. If you haven't done the ICW, it's worth…"

"With a trimaran drawing just over a foot, you must have been able to go pretty much anywhere you wanted to, huh? I mean, providing there was horizontal clearance. Sounds cool. Anybody have advice concerning a 5.5' draft in the ICW?"

Saw your boat yesterday while was out checking on mine. That's a stout looking boat! I know about the "donut hole". I fell in this past November. Only my wallet was injured!

Waterford did fine. The center of Watergate was destroyed. Several piers gone, boats everywhere, bldgs. gutted. Very sad. I am on 5 near Waterford, so Pier Pressure did ok. The area was hit hard. Getting back to some normal, but will take awhile.
Where are you now?

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
