No, not like THAT you pervs! I made new teak hatch covers and generally redid all the wood on the boat as oiled teak. Varnish is nice but it takes too much maintenance. You need literally 40 coats to make it work and the varnish isn't cheap or easy to put on (like me). With the oil I just oil up my wood every time I'm on the boat (OK, yes, now it sounds dirty) and it stays spic and span. In other news I removed the carburetor of the outboard and cleaned it all out, put it back together (no spare parts!) and she runs like a top now. Yay! Finally TOM PETTY TONIGHT! Psyched! Road trip though. It's in Mansfield Mass. No tickets left for Madison Square Garden. I plan to come up with something special for HNT tomorrow so watch this space. Love ya! W00t!
