Current on board debate: how big does a rock have to be before it is an island.

Big enuff 4 one inhabitant and able to support that one i.e. arable, & provide shelter or a site where shelter could be built.

Close to an ice cream shop. After all othef things - is life really possible without icecream

To me a rock is a ROCK and an island is an ISLAND if it has dirty, sand and vegetation on it.

Not hard to define.

 

Ok some rocks might have  a tree or two on it but it wouldn't have a beach.

So I won that one, it's a rock. As long as I dont tell Angela I won.

So another random question: what is the smallest island you know of?

The haystack

So an island has to be able to sustain human life, but there are no explanations offered on what exactly that means. I mean, given the right technology, human life can be sustained on the friggin moon.

The beehive. Definitely a rock, not an island, will not sustain life. In fact will take yours if you’re not careful. It owes me some skin off my face.

Ditto the Nun, who only cares for seabirds.

The whole area will spank you if taken for granted.

Beautiful @Sabre

Can you share some details on this? What paint, what non-skid, what prep did you do?  

Did you remove the tracks?

Thanks Winter.

I removing all the deck gear including the toe rails. I then sanded off all the molded gelcoat non slip (big job) Ground out any redundent holes and filled and faired with west system epoxy. Primed with altex barrier undercoat and painted with altex elite. 

I then masked and lightly sanded the altex elite for the Kiwigrip to key to. 

A sh*t load of work but it should be worth it in the long run.

Removing toe tails does not look like a fun job

Sprayed the elite or roll & tip?

To be honest the toe rails weren't as bad as I expected given that they had probably been there for 40yrs but like everything very time consuming.

I rolled the broader areas as they were getting covered with Kiwigrip anyway and brushed the rest. Not perfect but I'm happy with it. I aim for tidy and practical rather than super yacht.

When you get the application right that altex does come up mint.
