  2. Re: How much plaster should I shop for?

    ^^^ Will lay some polyethylene on the hull (tipped up on beam end) first. The cast will likely have a few wrinkles, but these can be smoothed out after casting the shape.

    Do they have their own Military Service Academy and are the students called Space Cadets? Will they be playing football?
  4. Re: How much plaster should I shop for?

    ^^^ Good idea in some cases, however, here the shape of the gunnel (section similar to a question mark with a flat top) would be too much "oversize" for a decent matchup.
  5. Re: How much plaster should I shop for?

    Cutting away 18" of gunwale to a depth of 8" down the topsides (which have a nice tumblehome) leaves nothing but air to lay the new laminate against. Yes, the edges of the cut require feathering. ...

  8. Re: Give Meagan a break fer cryin' out loud!

    You've all seen guys "salute" twice, once vertically, and repeated horizontally; meaning "this is for you, and this is for the horse you rode in on".
  9. Re: Give Meagan a break fer cryin' out loud!

    Meghan should start "saluting" the press with her finger "tilted' just a bit; sort of a "message" that makes it uniquely hers.

    Re: We don’t do windows.

    Exactly how does one tell a spouse "I don't do windows"? Around here windows are cleaned, one way or another, come hell or high water, second floor or whatever.

  15. Re: I predict lots of folks have or will fail WORDLE today.

    I would think one might want to be wary of one who thinks of "parer" before some of the other choices like "paper" or "pager". BTW, my spell check here doesn't like my use of "parer" here.
