Mishaps


Boats they tend to rock and roll, sometimes when you least expect it.  We're in the process of installing our new davits and its definitely a larger project than the designer led us to believe.  Gord was tidying up after a sweaty day of work when one of those unexpected rock 'n rolls happened and his toe and the lazarette hatch competed for the same space. Gords toe lost. The hatch slammed down and almost cut the end of his toe off- well needless to say there was a little  *%#*#! and of course squeemish me ended up prone on the deck while he doctored himself. Sorry Gord! So, there's been no swimming for Gord, but still the sweaty work days. The Davits are almost fully installed, the toe is healing and he can't wait for to get the snorkel out.  Check out the new Davits
