#41: A Cause Worth Weeping For

Well … we found out why our stringers rotted.  You want to know?  Watch this.  Warning, it might make you cry, or weep at least, to know such a small, seemingly insignificant thing can dismast a boat.

Thanks to my Patrons who help me share the journey.  Get inspired.  Get on board.

      Don’t feel bad for us Jay. We’ve got a beautiful boat, sunshine and healthy bodies to be thankful for. I appreciate the kind words, but we’ll be headed out next season. All smiles here. Same to you!

    I am not sailor nor owning the boat, my 2 cents to the plugging problem is to open the hole to 1″ or more to prevent mud build up. Love your books.

      “What do we have for him, Johnny?” Peter, you’ve guessed it just right. That’s exactly what we intend to do. We’re going to drill the hole bigger and put in a separate sump box to catch the mast water (as well as a few other water sources) to keep it out of the bilge. All will be shown on the videos soon. Thanks for your input! Glad to have you on board!
