Whenever practical I always try to do my own work on the boat. I learn something each time and I know where things are when it breaks and I need to fix it in some remote location. Sometimes I know it requires more expertise than I have. Then I’m willing to get someone in to help as long as I can watch and learn.
Sometimes DIY doesn’t save a lot. This moron apparently sent his cushions out for new upholstery. When he got them back he re-installed them with dry-wall screws.
Completely irrelevant, but couldn’t resist…
We’re making good time up the ICW, heading toward Annapolis and enjoying the scenery. Will be doing the Dismal Swamp Canal tomorrow.
