Congratulations Depoe Bay!

 

Depoe Bay was named “Best Harbor in the US” in US Harbor's annual contest. It looks like the contest allows the competing communities to pack the ballot box <g>, but if the people in Depoe bay lover their harbor enough to make that effort, good for them! :o) Depoe bay is indeed a special place.

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.

I don't think I will name it. I'll let whoever get's it pick the name, although the name Dennis has a certain ring to it.

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