Corrosion

Perhaps one of the most frustrating parts of living on a boat in salt water is the constant and continual corrosion. I am working on new lights for the aft head. I sat on the 6 month old toilet seat (the head for the salty) and it went flying off (as did I.) Further investigation showed that the bolts that hold the toilet seat to the; bowl have rusted thru. Then I went out to hook up the propane heater. All went well until I tried to open the secondary valve. It was frozen shut. Uggggghhhhhhhhh

Kitty Proofing

Covers
XO the Wonder Cat, like many of his species, goes into high speed overdrive every once in a while. He runs from stem to stern, bounces off the walls, jumps on me, and in general acts like he is going crazy. When in port he is on a leash so that he does not wander. In both cases he has a tendency to trip or turn on the emergency bilge switch circuit breaker and selection switch. My project today was to put covers over the two switches so that I could still operate them but they would be less vulnerable to "kitty frenzy." The result is in the picture at the left.
