Most Loopers take this route, rather than take the Mississippi to New Orleans, because of the lack of marinas on the lower Mississippi.
I assume these folks are looping North, so you may have the...
There was a regatta in Mobile Bay that ran into trouble:
I don't know if he was a...
The next to last photo seems to show a lot of water intrusion - I guess that's why the cabin top was rebuilt.
Overall, nice boat, but you do have your work ahead of you. Are planning on adding...
James, is it possible to maintain cell coverage in the Strait of Juan de Fuca? I have an app on my phone that gives me alerts 30 minutes ahead of severe weather, using GPS and doppler radar. ...
I had this issue with latex paint after it was in garage during -11 F weather. New, unopened can, and all the latex congealed at the bottom into a large rubber coaster. Given that this is...
I have gone the Dyami Plotke route (if you don't know Dyami, he is one of the hosts of the Modern Woodworkers Association podcast, and blogs here). Dyami has around 28 routers; I'm only up to 4. If...
Aside from being a standard, I never really understood the boiling part. After I spent 8 hours driving through Ohio in a snow and rain storm last year to buy 6 mm Okoume, I told someone about the...
I have several of those and that is a good description. Great for holding things in place, not so great if you need a bunch of clamping pressure.
Yes, I see a lot of money being spent in that picture.
I can never see the term syndicate without thinking of "A Charlie Brown Christmas", where Lucy says that Christmas is run "by a big eastern syndicate".
Sorry for the thread drift.
First of all, it looks like one of those Roomba vacuum cleaners which will vacuum rooms on their own. That aside, I see a rental opportunity for waterfront dwellers who need extra space for family. ...
I would contact the Northwest School of Boat Building or the Great Lakes School of Boat Building and see if they would want them left to them when you no longer use or need them. They could use...
Not work related, but my Dad told a story of a well-heeled fraternity brother who lived in close proximity to West Point. This guy rented a PA system and played reveille 15 minutes ahead of the...
Good rule for any rotating machinery. I defended a case where a guy got his glove caught on the chuck of a low speed, high torque drill press used to drill holes in mine headers. The torque of the...
I like the trailer. Cool wheels.
Great opening line for the article on gCaptain:
I found this link - appears to be related:
Looks like it is in great shape.
we are in major thread drift, but not all juries are out of control. I practice in West Virginia (deemed the No. 1 judicial hell hole in the US), and in my home county, juries are very conservative,...
This was my original thought, as someone who defends US lawsuits.
Here's the issues:
By sailing into US waters, do you appoint someone as your agent for service of process (accepting lawsuit...
Try ketchup or bloody mary mix. Surprising results.
For whatever reason, I signed up for the gCaptain newsletter at the beginning of the year, so I get an email every day about shipping news. I am surprised at the number of sinkings that have...
I read Small Craft Advisor. Besides, you were in the R2AK video. You must know what you are doing.
This is not directed at you, because I believe that you know what you are doing. Charging is really more a disincentive to the fool hardy. No one goes to sea with the idea of needing rescue, but...
It ended as most folks predicted, albeit without loss of life. This should rekindle the discussion about reimbursement of the Coast Guard for saving people who get themselves into avoidable trouble.
I saw that boat at the New York Boat Show last week. They display it on its side at events.
We are litigious.
Have you tried Lloyds? They seems to be able to place odd types of insurance.
1). Accidentally back my truck into one of the posts, confess that I am idiot, and then offer to rebuild it to correct my negligent ways. Then rebuild it 1 foot wider.
2). If you...
No, they are sharp, or if not, I sharpen them.
Edit: I meant the planes. I don't know how to sharpen saws.
Second edit: Or the froe, but I haven't found the need to sharpen it yet.
The message my bench top sends out is that I need a bigger shop. If I had more room I would be much more organized. :d
To quote the late, great Warren Zevon
I was gambling in Havana
I took a little risk
Send lawyers, guns and money
Dad, get me out of this
Steven, take note.
Also, I am jealous too.
I never really thought about it until I saw the boat, but I think the song is in 3/4 time.
I can't see all the notes, but it looks like the beginning of "Row, row, row your boat".
This is a link to a podcast interview of John Harris of Chesapeake Light Craft. He talks bout their CNC machines and the amount of maintenance and tweaking that they have to do to them.
I don't think Hickory takes to bending well, if you are dealing with curves on the interior. If you are looking for lighter color and the ability to bend, I would use ash, as long as it is dry...
Excellent work and a nice looking crew to boot. I love a plumb bow.
Assuming you could make a vessel out of this material, would the dark color of the denim be an issue with sunlight? Does acrylic break down with UV? I can imagine a scenario where you would start...
No need for my "Anyone heard from James McMullen lately?" thread now. Welcome back, James. An early Christmas gift for the rest of us.
And don't be afraid to contact the designer. These people are amazingly accessible and are usually very willing to help out.
This Rikon gets a good recommendation in the woodworking community. Big resaw capacity without the riser block addition.
Quite a bit of detail on the metallurgy.
is this McMullen's? I thought he had said that he was going to sell his.
Would you consider making and selling more planes?
I used seat belt material and four boat winches, as below:
