Officially, my package says

"Cable Ties"
"Amaaras Para Cables"
"Attaches Pour Cables"
In the islands we just say, "da kine".

It's all good.

I think I was getting 'wire ties' mixed up with 'twist ties'. Now I got it. I think Ty-Wrap might have been the original.

Here they just say "It's all good."

I tried my new spray skirts for the first time on Tuesday. They worked great! They successfully contained all the spray from the aka knuckles very nicely. My boat and the mainsail stayed nice and dry.

I found that to keep the skirts taut, we needed to install grommets on each of the 3 corners.

See videos below of them in action deflecting all the spray.

Nice taut install! Very nicely done.

Unless something changes, you got the last gray one :o They discontinued the blue-gray color (my favorite). Plenty of black or beige (yellow-brown) available.

If anyone really wants a gray, find and buy a 50' roll (6' wide) of gray shadecloth at Ace Hardware, Lowes, or Home Depot and ship it to me and Dee will make and ship a sprayskirt to you in exchange. :)

Enjoy!
