    That’s the princesses’ resolutions. To not kiss frogs. Or at least this frog.

    Those bikinis can add a lot of extra weight. Food for thought.

    Is that because you have been kissed by too many princesses in the past?

    I've weighed a dozen of Jodi's, all together less than a pound. #WorthTheWeight

    6 days, 7 nights movie quote -
    Angelica: Look what I bought, Quinny. Quinn Harris: Uh... what is it? Angelica: It's a bikini, silly! Frank Martin: I thought it was an eye patch.

    Cruising tip of 2018:

    Keep them small and dry!

    Pondering:
    If you clip a wet bikini top to the pennant line and its "air drying" in the breeze..
    Does it really add weight to your boat?

    Jim...

    Nice graphic. I wish we had those pylons: would make my backing up easier and probably adds additional protection. I'm always anxious about my slip neighbor's tilted outboard sticking out.

    Oh well.... sorry it was not helpful. Is there a large cleat at the end of your finger pier that you could snag with a spring line? Might work the same way.

    Things to do after launch of new boat.
    1. Practice close quarters maneuvering.
    2. MOB drills
    3. Learn how boat responds when Hove To
    4. Performance sail trim
    5. Benefits of flying bikini tops from spreaders. (Note to self. This may take a lot of trials. Need to carefully select crew)

    and be very wary of what (and I'll choose my words very carefully here) reproduction hardware the neighbourhood boats have on board. Or rather, how big the lenses are that are mounted.
    Oh nevermind.

    At some point its easier if you just don't care. Consider it part of the 'Make America Beautiful' program. Or Canada.

    Maybe I should have suggested, "Kiss YOUR princess more."
    That way you may find it easier to obtain that all important bikini top to fly from your spreaders. Or in case you suddenly need an eye patch;)

    Go on an cruise that is longer than an overnighter across the bay and back. Hopefully St Michaels or the Sassafras river. Or both!

    My quip is "I'm V&V!!! It's a good day!"

    V&V stands for vertical and ventilating.
