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.

And Walter Essiak the About Sailing guy loved it too. He featured in his regular email toady.

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

Turinas said... I just re-read my post. I meant "email today" not "email toady" which sounds a little offensive. Excuse the mispront. My fingres are dickslessic.

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!
