#justonemorething gets top billing this week and for good reason... 
Jettisoned in at #7, the newly refurbished Doodlebug proves an unfortunate but prime example of what happens when our boats are apparently mishandled around our (yes, tight) racking space.

With thanks to Matthew H for doing what we should all be doing, he spotted and reported damage (of the top-nut and rack-shaped variety) so bad that water had reached the 'honeycomb' layer - as shown above... Despite it not being his job, Graham Ca has already done a tidy repair job - for which we all owe our huge thanks for keeping this and many other boats in such good service.

Now though, in a bid to counter this kind of damage, and with thanks to Shahram and Padi, the re-cut and strung tennis balls have returned - as shown below.

Even if not yet all, most boats have these re-purposed tennis balls installed, so please, where you see them, use them - they have no purpose or place laying on the ground, in a bucket, or elsewhere! 
  1. Instead, when boating, just loop the tennis balls around the arm of the rack the boat's sitting on.
  2. Then once back with boat washed and racked, simply loop the elasticated string over the underside of the rigger using the tennis-ball-half to cup the top-nut of the gate, so protecting the boat below from rigger dings.
If you do have any tennis balls you can donate, please do hand them to Eva, Claudine, or leave in a bag at the back of the boathouse - many thanks.
