Wordless Wednesday | A Love Affair With Caulk



Wordless Wednesday is supposed to be about posting a photo(s) without any words. But, I'm a rule breaker, so here are a few words:

1 - This is the top of our bi-color navigation light on the bow of our Moody 346 sailboat.

2 - One of the previous owners of our boat must have had a love affair with caulk. The stuff is everywhere.

3 - Caulk is not always a good thing.

4 - Caulk is definitely not a good thing on your nav lights. It makes it really hard to get the fixture apart to check the light bulb. 
   
What words does this picture(s) bring to your mind when you look at it?

  1. Well, it and the stainless around it looks so clean! What's better than caulk? 5200! That stuff will be in your nightmares and on your favorite pair of jeans :-)

    1. 5200 is the devil's work :-( Fortunately, the use of that was more minimal than caulk.

  2. Caulk - not just for the bathroom anymore.

  3. Smoke. When I first looked at the picture, I thought the reflection of the clouds was smoke on the water. Bugger! Now I'm going to have that song in my head all day. ;-)

    1. Although it could have easily been smoke as they're constantly burning the sugar cane fields around here

  4. There are places it needs to be and there are even more places it doesn't need to be. Good grief.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

    1. So true - caulk in the nav lights, not one of the places it needs to be.

  6. Roland Clarke introduced me to your blog. I'm looking forward to reading it. I spent 5 years sailing aboard a Lagoon 380 and before that 4 years on a Niagara 42. I love to read about others having the sailing adventure.

  7. Caulk is a love/hate relationship. I love it when it's where it's supposed to be, and hate it when it's a messy done job.

    1. That's so true - caulk does have it's place and can be really useful, except when it isn't :-)

  8. All I can say is that I hope it is not 5200. 4200 is your friend, especially when redoing projects will be needed (they will be). 5200 is only good to reattach soles to your shoes, or for permanent boat fixtures. Happy messing aboat. :-)

    1. I've seen how people used 5200 to repair shoes - such a great idea! Fortunately, this wasn't 5200. It if was, I'd be quite a bit crankier.

  9. Sorry, apparently I am a thirteen-year-old because I can't stop giggling at "caulk."

  10. I know nothing about boats, so you're educating me. :)

    1. I pretty much know next to nothing about boats either so I'm constantly learning something new every day.

  11. I'm glad you added some words, because otherwise I would have no idea what that was! The word that came to my mind was "industrial."

  12. Growing up with a Boat Captain for a father, caulk was used extensively in our house.
    I guess the apple does not fall far from the tree as it is still used in my house on quite a few occasions. ;)

    1. I wonder what we did before they invented caulk? It's definitely a key part of anyone's DIY kit.
