    the dor-mor or pyramid anchors are ok, better in mud to soft mud than harder bottom. The manufacturer recommends at least a 3:1 scope which is slightly longer than the 2.5:1 used for mushrooms. They don't tend to wrap up the chain like the mushroom do in the tide or wind shifts.

    Really like the forepeak fresh water tank. The fresh water pump has enough flow to supply the pressure washer that is used for mooring balls and pennants. I have it plumbed to use saltwater then switch for a fresh water wash down on the winch. It was hard to estimate the size of the tank because of the odd shape. Think it is close to 120 gallons around 1,000 lbs. It trims the boat to its lines when it full.

    ...twins on a DE, or is it? Recently added controls for the winch and gallows at the helm. Piggy backed on the original controls at the stern with a morse control. I am really looking forward to using this, as it allows me to view the plotter and other equipment when setting moorings.

    Finally getting around to strengthening up the wash rails. Placing them every 4 feet. I hope that is enough. Cannibalized the old bulkhead to cut some gussets out of. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and glassing will be on Saturday.

    Those blades sure took a beating! I've been using the carbide grit or diamond grit blades for cutting fiberglass and am now a big fan of them. They have no teeth, just the grit. I tried one as an experiment because it just didn't look like it would do the job. And it only took that one blade to cut the entire windshield out of the Bruno, and modify all of the window sizes. I'm not sure how they would work on that material, but my guess is better than the blades you used. Home Depot usually has them if you want to try one. LBI sells a different brand which also works well.

    Thanks for the info on the jig saw blades. I will have to try them. The best I've found is the one on the left. Something about how it clears the chips maybe, IDK. For mass destruction, my reciprocating saw with the carbide diablo blades seem to hold up. Only problem with that, it basically cuts straight lines.
