Before becoming boat owners, we used to chuckle at friends whose clothing was always stained – clean but stained. It seemed that life aboard a boat is hard on clothes.
We found that it’s really easy to ruin perfectly good clothes – and totally inexcusable. Recently I decided to wipe down the head with a bleach water solution – keeps it clean and I like the “clean” smell of the bleach solution. For such a quick project, I didn’t change into “work clothes”.
BIG MISTAKE! Now one of my favorite pair of Columbia khaki casual shorts have bleach spots. And all because I didn’t take a minute to change into old clothes for a 3 minute project.
Be sure to take a minute to change if there’s ANY chance anything you might be using in your next boat project might damage something you’re wearing… like David’s favorite yellow quick dry shirt …. with spanish mackerel blood spots all over it. 🙁 Don’t wear your favorite clothes if there’s ANY chance of mishap.
Have a great day. If you have any other “don’t make this dumb mistake” tips, please leave a comment and share! Cheers! Jan
