Re: Very Cheap or Free Weekender

 

The "monster beam" on the foredeck is the lower part of the mast. I won't call it a tabernacle, but it serves the same purpose. It's got a hinge loose-pin hinge on top, with the other half of the hinge on the bottom of the rest of the mast:

I'm still interested in the Honda, if it can be arranged for me to see it.

I see a lot of work on that weekender, lots of weather checking which would require some paint removal/sanding/filling to repair. Bowsprit be a pretty easy fix to scarf or replace, I’d think. I can’t tell what the monster beam on the foredeck is about. The transom would be easy enough to repair and beef up. My Honda 2 hp or my Tohatsu 3.5 would look good on that boat, then.

My Geodesic Airolite Boat

 

I stopped by the Andrew Linn Boatshop in Toledo the other day to check on the Platt Monfort Classic 12 the Retired Old Geezers are building for me. They've got the skin on and shrunk, and the first coat of Rodda "latex" housepaint has been applied:

Looks Good Guys! :o) I dropped off a tube of Life Calk to bed the external wood parts. It's in a box amongst the other Airolite stuff.

As a bonus I've included a shot of the Steward Pram that Rick, et al., were building during the boat show. It's coming along nicely. :o)

The Roskilde Museum was the featured guest at the Australian Wooden Boat Festival in Hobart when I went there in 2005. I got to row their 10-meter boat (that's me in the TSCA hat and tan shorts near the bow).

I have a six foot 3 X 3 galvanized tongue for cheep. I still have the Honda 2 h.p. at 400. to a coot.

Re: Shifty Sailors of the Maritime

 

It was probably fun to see the Shifty Sailors at the Museum. Mary and me were down at the Coast, but she had to be back Friday afternoon. <sigh> The theater there is really something! The view is so good out the windows they really don't need to bring in any entertainment. <g> The Retired Old Geezers in Toledo did a lot of volunteer work to get the theater finished. here's the Shifty Sailors Web page:

I'm gradually gonna put some of the boat plans I have in digital format onto coots.org. Eventually I'll make a Web page pointing to them, but in the meantime, here's a start (Chick is the boat Rick is building in the Andrew Linn Boatshop, as seen during the boat show):

As my repeat (oops!) messages to the group should indicate, there will be a Halloween float.

Coots' Annual Yaquina River Halloween Float, October 26th

 

The Coots' Halloween float from Elk City to Toledo will be Saturday, October 26th, this year. The high tide at Elk City will be at about 1:15, and we'll have a good ebb tide helping us down the river to the Cannon Quarry ramp, about 6 1/4 miles. After we get the boats pulled out we'll have dinner at the pizza joint by the docks in Toledo:

Hope you can make it!
