Sometimes we get pizza, but Jim was a cheapskate and made us buy our own lunches before this boat turning. <sigh> Sometimes we've even got pizza AND cookies! :o)

Cookies?  You guys got cookies?   Once a week the jailer comes by and lets US out for a bath.  That is, if we don’t already drink the water, with the bread we get, tossed under the door.  At least, I think it’s water.  Cookies, huh?

 

That wasn’t no chainsaw outa’ control.  Worse.  A Sawzall, fully in control.  A truly awful day.  I guess that was about two months ago.   The new cabin is more or less put together.  A couple feet longer, with a plywood top.   We’re getting close to being ready for a break to freedom—the boat, that is.  As far as the workforce, here; we can petition for clemency on alternate Christmases.   But, if I asked for a cookie, I’d probably get tossed in the tank.  Between shifts.  Wow.  You guys get cookies.

Re: [MessaboutW] Re: Jim -- loved the Shellback and the cookies !!

 

The usual drill is to put the oarlock sockets on raised pads. This photo Dustin took of Pickle shows hers:

Dan should be sitting by the fire drinking hot cocoa with Jamie on his lap, but no, he's out in the shop doing terrible things to Miss Kathleen. <sigh> But I trust that she'll emerge in the spring looking better than ever, and we'll read all about her ordeal in MAIB and Duckworks. ;o)

Frostbite #2

michael t <livingit36@...>
 

Hello everyone, 

Frostbite two was a fantastic success at Dexter Lake. We arrived to 20 knot winds moving down to 8-10 until about 2pm with lunch at the Dexter Club and Rattle Snake BBQ for what is easily some of the best BBQ I have had in the state. Here are some pictures. Eric Redmond, my mid deck and new to sailing and foredeck Andy Bailey. The weather was beautiful on what was anything but a Frostbite series. 

Next event is on January 27th from 10-3pm with the same intentions. Should be great fun!

I’ve seen 3/8" shaft, 1/2” shaft, and drift boats at 5/8” shaft.  Brass, bronze, galvanized.  Hey, mebbe even SS.  Actually not sure what the drift boat ones are made from.

I cleaned the shop up for the boat turning Coot crew. They deserve a clean place with no dust on their cookies. What happened to Miss Kathleen? Looks like someone lost control of a chain saw!

I couldn't find a set of oar locks that would fit.  Mine are way bigger holes, and designed for full size drift boats and such.  Your oar locks would look weird in that boat.  Thanks again for the company and treats, if I see something you might use, I will bring whatever looks useful to Thursdays lunch meeting.




Re: Jim's Shellback Dinghy

Dan
 

But, Jim!

 

How can you get any work done in that shop, with all the tools coiled up in individual bins, and all those clamps neatly in rows?  I can even see what color your bench top is.  How do you find time to build such a beautiful boat, when you must be sweeping and dusting, constantly?

 

Best,

Thanks for the help from everyone. Great day. My pictures were blurry, don't know what happened. Guess I need to read the instructions that came with the camera. Yours look good as usual John, thank you.

Update: The messabout happened.  The weather was picture perfect.  I think we had 7 boats out.  A few pictures are here:
