okay now, @mrsclem , since you have SO MUCH else to do, surely you're going to need SOMEONE to taste-test your lil creations, right? Ahem, I'll take time to step away from my job here (I mean, not like I make much bread around here, ya know?) and volunteer. Wouldn't want the Lotus Queen or any of her family to get sick, now would we? Not that I think this is going to happen, but JUST TO BE SURE, CAREFULLY place the three in the pic above into a nice, well insulated UPS box (can't have them cooling off, dontcha know!) and stick a Michigan tag all over it with my address...what? What's that you say? @combatwombat 's been seen lurking around your house??? And @Mmathis is sitting in a get-away-car near the curb? Oh, this is NOT going to end well....
Most have no idea how much wind plays with a boat especially when coming into the marina and docking and the 10's of thousands of dollars your maneuvering around. And to have someone come look at a boat god only knows if they know what they are doing. more then likely they have no insurance for a boat and if they hit someone else it's a night mareWent over and moved our old boat to a new slip so our old slip is ready for the new old boat. We have 3 coming to see it maybe one will be a buyer. So much scam out there.
Had to do it today low winds, tomorrow 33 mph, rest of the week higher winds then we want to deal with.
Had 4 other boaters jump in and help moving the lines moving the boat, whew no wrecks. The slip is a lot smaller than our slip. A tight fit.

that's interesting; I'd have thought insurance for boats would be similar to how auto insurance is here in Mi (but then, maybe other states don't do it this way) in that we have no-fault. I KNOW why they did this but sure makes it easier for the less than responsible drivers to have a license and continue afterwards. I'm sort of a 'owner responsible' person, so this has always ground on me a bit.We a guy that is working on his 75 foot boat drive ours. He slid it in like it was meant to be there, maybe 6 inches on each side.
No macho from us, ie let us do it we know what we are doing!
The other boaters and I handled the ropes, pulling it in the last bit. Then I did all the tie down.
We have to keep good insurance on the boat or they kick you out. Now you could insure show the policy then cancel, but no thanks. There are some darn expensive boats there.
He is going to help us learn the new boat, fly deck, side thrusters etc for the price of some honey!
