Rudder and Prop on The Holy Mackerel

If you notice on the rudder there is a silver zinc and also on the bottom of the keel.

The reason that boat owners replace the zincs when they haul out is because electrolysis eats away at metal under the water line on a boat but it eats away at the zincs first so the rest of the metal goes untouched by the electrolysis. If the boat owner keeps up on replacing the zincs when they get eaten away the other metal below the boat will stay in better shape over time.

The Mrs’ Strawberry Shortcake

I don’t know what’s gotten into the Mrs, but she’s been on a cooking frenzy.

I had a particularly tough day at work yesterday cleaning out the lobster tanks and working on setting up some new ones and I came home to a killer dinner and special dessert.

Home made biscuits and strawberry shortcake. Made with strawberries from the coop share we have at Appelton Farms.
