WD-40 and Duct Tape

Thanks to Garfieldt's Blog for this great advice. It really is all you need to know about maintaining boats ...

  • You only need two tools: WD-40 and Duct Tape.

  • If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40.

  • If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Comrade Tillerman, since you were kind enough to stop by my blog and leave a witty comment, I thought I'd do the same.

But my brain is beginning to hurt trying to use WD-40 and duct tape in the same witty remark without going from Rated PG to R.

So instead I'll wish you the best of luck in your future marathon. ;)

Thank you Dan for the luck and for not being witty. This is a serious sailing blog for serious sailors seriously writing about seriously sailing serious boats. Nobody is ever witty here.

I prefer marinetex and boeshield T-9...but basically the same idea.

True words
I've heard that of other things as well, but perhaps most fitting for serious repair of a serious problem on a serious boat, by a serious sailor.

fair winds...Seriously

Corollary: never pass up an opportunity to buy duct tape in other colors, especially in black: very useful in repairing clothing chewed by Dobermans as in shoes and hats. On boats gray tape looks like repair but black tape looks like factory-installed!
