Tub you say? We'll see about that gimbal boy. If we could only get you away from the beverage counter long enough to find out what faculties you have, would be a miracle. Going back and forth between tomes and the goose doesn't constitute boating, that is commuting

Oh, and Hi John

DON'T WAX THE BOTTOM. You are wasting time.
And if you have to transport it, you have risk of it sliding. I'd hate to see a bottom waxed on a Bull. It would not be a pretty sight.

Hey there you go. A cheap way of getting it wet sanded.
