On The Rocks Update. Well, she did experience some damage, but mostly cosmetic and she performed as designed and built. We try and stay up on her bottom and other parts, and it paid off big time. just last year we had replaced some softer wood that could have gone further, but why? And thats the area that was hit. So that simple choice to stay ahead of it saved her, and possibly us. Her bottom has been refastened about 10 years ago. I will let the photos tell the rest of the story
Regarding the rocks in the Bay. I have sent off a note to our Congressmen to please assist in getting the Coast Guard to fix this. No one is happy about this around here. Putting a marker on it may seem simple for us to do. BUT, it opens up all sorts of liability if it goes bad, and the Coast Guard knows how to do it right. This area can be rough. But the Rocks need to be dealt with. And we will be pounding away at that. While pounding away at Sweet Peas, keel. Thank god this wasnt in WECATCHEM, and the experience although jarring, is just another wonderful chapter in boating. I consider myself lucky to live here and have the support of our friends!
