    Only if the companionway is offset, exactly the same amount on the other side.

  3. Glad it all ended up well, maybe except your wallet. Telling these stories is important. I too have a story, that thankfully ended well involving the mast coming down, me going over the side and my dad left on the boat but unfamiliar with it, at night.

    The Zombie Fleet

    Poor Shark! Depending on the state of the stringers that would be worth rescuing. I'd love to see the "Yamaha 8L motor" though!

    leaky cracked water tanks

    When we bought our previous boat, I discovered that the inlet fitting on the plastic water tank had a circular crack almost all the way around and was leaking prodigiously. I also found a tube of Marine Goop in the stuff that came with boat, which I used to "temporarily" fix the crack before we delivered the boat home. That fix was still there 12 years later and never leaked a drop

    Refinishing Teak and Holly Floorboards...

    What Woobagooba said. I did exactly this when I re-did mine. The only difference is that I used Varathane satin floor varnish from the hardware store. It has no UV protection but is meant to be walked on. That was 5 years ago. So far so good

    What would you do?

    I too would like to think I'd try everything to get the person back on board. The thing about mental illness is that it is often hidden by those afflicted and very difficult or impossible to detect unless you are trained and have the chance to speak with the individual. I know a little about it as my daughter is recovering from it.
