Elbow Grease

I have almost always made It a point not to buy new. Some things you have to, I am not a big fan of pre-worn clothing.. but cars, bicycles, homes, and boats are all things that can be bought used in relatively good nick, and if you continue to take good care of them, they will give you many years of reliable service.

I also apply that same standard to things I buy for Flirt. A few posts back I mentioned purchasing a Bronze Wilcox Crittenden  Steaming Light.. With Hurricane Arthur roaring in over the Atlantic, My father thought a few hours with a dremel, some polishing discs, and brasso would a fun way to wait out the storm.

It is a shame nobody will ever see it 20 feet off of the deck, but I will know it looks pretty up there, all polished and slowly turning that lovely shade of green that Bronze does

A long time sailor who has been away from the water for too long, I am working hard to bring an old and abused boat back to life. When not working on my boat, I can often be found working as a Stage Hand in Atlantic City or just out and about on my Mountain Bike. I really come off as a quiet and boring person when people first meet me.
