Interesting hull on the tender. How much of the deck was inflatable?

I was amazed at how clean the Windlass and undamaged the steel the Anchor chain crashed against appeared.

Even the working parts that take tons of abuse on that first video were cleaner and less damaged than my Dining room.

That first one was fun to watch. That's a side of operating a boat that you don't often see.

The second video was interesting. That's about the strangest looking dinghy I've ever seen. The guy handling the bow line seemed to have it together than the guy on the stern.

Thanks for sharing those, Mark. Gives me something to look forward to in my dreams.

When the anchor was raised was it being washed down/ rinsed off at the same time?
