    Removing Bird Poop

    I would love to hear what the rest of you fine people have found the most effective bird poop remover from their Sunbrella canvas. Is removing the covers for professional cleaning a good option? Is there some kind of killer product that sprays on and removes the last of the white residue...

    How do we edit our posts after publishing? Can we control the number of days we want our "recent posts" search to go back. Does the opening forums page default to recent posts, ask all sailors? I want to see all recent posts back to a certain length of time that I define it was...

    Getting rid of boat Odors

    I scanned this article from our latest marina newsletter( a syndicated publication to which Marina Village subscribes)....

    Last year's MSD and plumbing projects still left the compartment feeling like an outhouse instead of a bathroom. So, with some left over counter material from a recent kitchen remodel and a hunk of cherry wood, I built this sliding vanity to make the head more functional and attractive. I need...
