Re: viking boat from tree to water.

 

That's a very interesting article, Jove. Thanks! it's wonderful what they do at the museum in Roskilde. I'd love to visit it.

Here's my favorite "tree to boat" video -- building a pirogue in Cajun country:

Just for Fun (Boat Plans)

 

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):

Re: Idle thoughts

 

As my repeat (oops!) messages to the group should indicate, there will be a Halloween float. Don't be late! <g> If you are gonna be late, call me on my cell phone: 541-913-0299 Don't anybody try calling when I'm not at a messabout, or traveling. The cell phone spends most of its time turned off; it may be weeks before I get a voicemail or text. <g>

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!

The Shifty Sailors are lots of fun, they are home ported in Coupeville a few miles from our farm, and a very professional group.  They have often preformed at the PT Wooden Boat Festival, and they sang at the art festival I started in Coupeville, 'The Art of the Boat'
check them out here...

I think I need a canvas fitter top for Surprise

Electri-Cal
 

I'm getting ready to make the primary fasteners locations to make this easier.  If anybody has done these before, I might just have it made up.  Ideas welcome, as I got mounting ideas ( but couldnt understand their speaking accent well ) from the Toledo boat upholstery folks, but Id like some other input, and some prices for a finished unit.   I'd like to find a coot built, but classy looking weather protective top, an easy way looks to be fitted over the folding bimini frame all ready in place, cover the whole thing and snap down.  Any top makers are welcome to check in on this.

Thanks,  Cal
