23 December 2007 | Chagaramas
We were prepping our boat for a trip to Tobago today and we decided to check on the lines as we got things ready to go. We had recently purchased two brand new 100 foot long ¾ inch three strand nylon lines to use as coconut tree lines. They had never been used prior to our arrival in Chagaramas but they came in handy for tying the bow off to the buoys out front.
The photo here shows what one month in the water at Chagaramas did to our lines. We are going to let them sun bleach for a couple days and then soak them in soapy water for a couple more to see if we can get them to recover. The huge amounts of hard growth (barnacles and what not) totally amazed me. Glad we have fresh bottom paint.
