In my ongoing efforts to learn Spanish, I'm highlighting a Spanish word each day during April as part of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. I'm also sharing the random thoughts that pop into my head when I try to pronounce them.
Today's Spanish word is >>eslinga<< (sling). And here are some random thoughts:
1 - You have to periodically haul out your boat out of the water for maintenance and repairs.
2 - For bigger boats, you use a Travelift. It has slings that lower into the water, cradling your boat, then lifting it out.
3 - I'm always a bit freaked out when I watch boats being hauled out. How can those slings possibly hold all that weight?
Have you ever seen a boat being hauled out by a Travelift? What's your favorite word that starts with "E" (besides Ellen, of course)?
Thanks for stopping by our blog - we love it when people come visit! We're also on Facebook - pop by and say hi!
