  1. Bona-fide cruisers should be allowed to come in for cyclone season from the pacific and sea time is quarantine. These are their homes we're talking about, tell them to just throw them away? I don't think so. Plus our economy needs the money.

  4. Something big that require revs / centrifugal force is the prop, and one blade sticking will obviously cause balance issues. I actually wondered if you had a bucket wrapped on the prop.

  8. Its being brought in so marina renters don't park and walk to work. "Please only park within Westhaven Marina when on site for a marina related purpose." Big Brother watching you. You can see it now, email or letter sent to you: "Sir, we noticed via our plate recognition initiative, that you parked at Westhaven Monday to Friday last week. You must be on a marina related purpose only when parked at the marina. Despite the fact we charge ridiculously overpriced monthly fees for our shitty marina, we can't have you trying to save a few $bucks each week by parking at our ma
