A reader sent in a photo yesterday morning and it got me thinking. What’s the worse position you’ve found yourself wedged into while trying to work on your boat?
I once found myself almost upside down, squirming underneath the flooring whilst trying to wedge myself behind a fuel tank. I was trying retrieve the end of a speaker cable that I passing through the bulkhead. I had a short moment of fear and panic when I realized, if I got stuck it would be at-least a day or two before anybody noticed I wasn’t answering my calls! I retrieved my cable and lived to tell the tale! Anyway, enough about me lets here your stories.
SEND US YOUR PHOTOS!
Marcin from Poland.
A photograph of Marcin hard at work on his Steel Yawl boat named “INA” The boat was bought 10 months ago. She is a 45″ boat, five prototypes were made in 1966-67, so one could say that it’s a classic. She served for 30 years in the Polish Yachting Association as a training boat. Now she belongs solely to Marcin, but still needs a lot of care to get her shipshape and Bristol fashion! The plan is to take his wife and four cats sailing around the world!
The photograph on the left shows Marcin looking for the perfect place for the air heater!
Tony from São Paulo, Brazil.
Tony hard at work underneath is plywood stitch and glue boat!
Adam from the UK.
Nothing beats welding by your face whilst being wedged in-between some floor joists. Let’s hope nothing sets on fire.
Johannes From Scotland, UK
Well, at least Johannes remembered to bring a head torch with him while he climbed into the depths of boaters hell. Johannes had to squeeze into his cockpit locker to reinstall a diesel heater after It was serviced.
