Skipper and I are proud of our garage. The boat may not be a super yacht but she has a sizeable boot in the stern. It’s bigger than our cabin next door – a lot bigger. Sometimes we dream about knocking through.
Since then Skipper has thought up some modifications to accommodate the rapidly accumulating purchases. And to house all those useful things that can’t be thrown away because they might come in handy one day. Amongst which are:
- A spare anchor
- A water filtration system
- Two folding chairs and a table for crew dining on the swimming platform
- Two folding bicycles – for whizzing along the pontoons of big marinas
- A fish-catching basket
- Racks for more toys
- A rail to hang life jackets and buoyancy aids – and which doubles as a laundry drying rail
- Fixings for hosepipes, shore power cables, spare fenders and ropes
(A fish catching basket…? Well, every reputable garage needs justifiable bric-a-brac.)
So what more could you want?
Well, there’s still a rack to go in there for the sea bob, waterskis and the wakeboard. But that’s next week’s job.
Oh, and somewhere in there, there’s still a jet ski.
