We wanted a way to keep track of which boats had sat the longest and needed to go kayaking/canoeing/sailing/motorboating/standuppaddling or needed maintenance/restoration. So we cut up some redwood and made a Marine Traffic Control strip board. The boats listed above SBR need work before they go back in the water, and of those listed the one at the top has sat the longest. The boat at the very bottom is the one that went out the most recent, so whatever rises to the top below the SBR strip goes out next.
Some would say we are "boat struck."

Update: SBR strip removed, boats at bottom are in the restoration queue. Boat at top has been out most recent. Boat at bottom has been in the hangar shop the longest, possibly decades in the case of CHIP, SMEDLEY and ZSA ZSA.
