The approach to Marina Seca Guaymas is a long dredged channel in the shallow bay.
The rest of the hull was covered with a very thin biofilm that allowed a slightly thicker layer of algae to attach. In the last few weeks, shrimp moved into the algae. The shrimp made it less fun than usual to scrape the hull, because they would leave the loosened algae and attach to the algae loosener (usually Nancy).
We’ve developed a possible product line. We bunch up pieces of nylon mesh (tulle), tie on strings, and stuff them into the through-hulls to keep bees from moving into the boat tanks and parts. Look for Boat Tampons at a marine store near you.
We missed a huge opportunity. The lower lawn was well on it’s way to becoming the beautiful meadow we’ve always wanted. I feared blackberry intrusion, panicked, and got out the mower. We should have just gotten a goat.
