    Cheap but decent cruising clothes

    I have a sunshower bag which I regularly use to wash the salt water off my feet before entering the boat. I'm almost embarrassed to mention that I only went snorkeling once after spending 3 months in the Bahamas because dealing with the salt was such an issue. To get back on topic, getting the...

    Cheap but decent cruising clothes

    I get wet primarily from taking the dinghy to shore. Since I tend to live on anchor and beach my dinghy when cruising, I'm always getting wet.

    Enlarge hatch opening ?

    I want to replace a leaking hatch on my boat since there are no replacement parts available for the hatches currently installed. The closest hatch I found is 1/4" larger than the old hatch opening. This means I need to trim an 1/8" off all sides of the opening down to 1&1/4" . Any...
