Re: Brand New Coast Pilot

 

The historical Coast Pilots are interesting, for those so inclined:

And the old charts:

TSCA - Web site problems

John Weiss
 

[Bcc to Council, Chapters, Groups]

All,

We continue to have problems with the tsca.net web site. The web folx are aware and working on it, but it is a stubborn problem.

We had quite a bit of unusual activity over the past few weeks, prompting the web folx to tighten security on our firewall. Simultaneously, they had to renew our SSL certificate. The combination caused the security app to dislike the new SSL Cert, and the result is the security warning you get.

We don't know exactly when we will find the right fix, but those who have worked around the warning have been able to access the site without apparent problem, including being able to renew their membership.

If you're not comfortable with workarounds, just be patient and check in ever few days. If you want to renew, you can always do it the old-fashioned way by mailing a check.

Re: Old Tools

I used to be a member of the PNTC (Pacific Northwest Tool Collectors club). Something like this is every tool collector’s dream. The whole thing really is greater than the sum of its parts. That said, the bench rabbit plane is worth $$$ if it is a Stanley. 

I kept hoping I would find a chest of shipwrights tools that someone left in an attic. No such luck. I did have lots of nice tools before I sold them to go cruising. (Totally worth it, btw.)

Before anyone panics, I did keep my favorite users. Most are under the workbench on Oceanus.

Handy, indeed. It's an age-old problem for those of us who drag our tools along to jobsites or dockside.

Re: Turning Over a Tolman Skiff

 

Lookin' Good, Randy. That's a Big boat! It might have been difficult to turn a boat that wide just with muscle power, looks like the continuous rope sling worked dandy.

Thanks for that, John!
And that article your posted referred to the hulls being treated typically

Nice boat. A snekke! :o) Gotta love those double-enders. <g> Though I tend
to favor the smaller ones:

https://www.woodenboat.com/snekke

https://flic.kr/p/dHZHnc

Unpainted boat bottoms? Must be too cold for shipworms, barnacles, and other
fouling. I'll bet they use a mixture of oil and pine tar on 'em, like they
use on the topsides of a lot of Scandinavian boats.

BTW, a literal translation of "snekke" is "worm". There must be something
lost in translation, as they say...

A 3^rd cousin of mine owned/refurbished and may have originally built
this wooden cruising boat that's now for sale in Stavanger, Norway.

His widow is selling the boat---cancer sucks. L

Interesting how in Norway it's common to have the boat bottoms
unpainted (probably varnished?) while topsides are often painted.

We even saw very large metal fishing boats with at least wooden
cladding up front and underwater.

I'm not sure why.
