Salish 100 Nest Year

 

We sure had a good time on the first Salish 100 last year. There wasn't one this year, of course, but they're gonna try again next year. I think it can be done in a responsible way, even if the Dread Virus is still causing trouble next summer.

https://flic.kr/s/aHsmFdUUEd

Here's note from Marty:

"2021 SALISH 100 REGISTRATION ANNOUNCEMENT -- Members of the organizing team met recently to begin planning for next summer's Salish 100, which will begin Friday, July 9 in Olympia and end a week later in Port Townsend--100 nautical miles with a fleet of 100 small boats and about 20 additional support vessels.
Registration for the 2021 cruise will open on Monday, January 4.
There will be lots of details to share between now and the start of registration, including Covid-related changes we might need to make; how we'll deal with skippers who registered for this year's cancelled Salish 100 (and left their registration fees in place with organizers); and information we'll need from everyone who registers for next July's cruise.

"So...please stay tuned; we'll have more updates in coming days and weeks, including notes from cruise boss Daniel Evans of the Northwest Maritime Center, official organizer of the S-100."

"Marty Loken"

https://nwmaritime.org/events/salish-100/

If you paid the fee for this year's S-100 and haven't heard from Them, get ahold of Karen and tell her whether you want a refund, to apply the fee to next year (you're already OKed for the trip if you do), or to donate the fee to the NW maritime Center: salish100cruise@gmail.com

Re: Giving away my Goose

 

Does Pride of Toledo come with the custom Coot burgee staff with brass wind indicator I made for her? That's worth the price by itself! ;o)

Re: Giving away my Goose

 

Andrew already tried donating his Goose to the Boathouse. They auctioned it off a few years ago, but the Port put in the highest bid and then gave the boat back to Andy! ;o) Pride of Toledo is a Good Boat. Andrew has said that she's the best one he's built. And Puddle Gooses are Good Boats, suitable for Ol' Coots and other less nimble folk. I hope one of Us gives her a good new home:

It's not in sail-able condition right now, and I don't feel it falls into the usage model of the Boathouse.

Re: New Skin on Frame design

Andrew Linn
 

We are getting there :) I'm considering doing a build guide and maybe selling the plans. I dunno. I'm not much of a businessman.

I've also been playing with 1:4 models of these canoes. Maybe a little kit where you could practice building before you build. You still have to do everything on the model you do on a real build, so it gives you good practice. Plus, a person can build a lot more 3', 4' and 5' boats without needing the garage space of a 12', 16' or 19' boat.

Photos? Plans? I'm glad you're getting back into boatbuilding, Andy.

The prototype Yaquina canoe was launched about 8 years ago and, despite being a bit worn from years of hard use in the Toledo Boathouse livery, and during the boat shows, is still usable. Pint-size persons particularly like it, but it's probably more suitable for grown-ups than the numerous Wee Lassie clones. The Willamette wil, probably be a better solo canoe for Ol' Coots like me, and will also let you take somebody along with you.

Alas, the Yaquina canoe plans are in limbo while Doug, one of the Retired Old Geezers, puts together a new Web page for the Boathouses. I shoulda saved the Boathouse plans myself while they were still available. <sigh>

To my mind, this is the first "extendable" SoF design. Using the same frame pattern, you can get an 11.5' solo canoe (the Yaquina), 15.5' tandem canoe (Willamette), and  an 18.5' tandem + canoe (Columbia.)
It's dead boring: totally symmetrical, completely flat (no rocker) and completely utilitarian. Ugliest canoe you'll use every time you get on the water.

It's dead boring: totally symmetrical, completely flat (no rocker) and completely utilitarian. Ugliest canoe you'll use every time you get on the water.

The frame/stem pattern fits on a piece of plywood 48 x 32 so you can build 3 boats out of one sheet of ply.

It needs (1) keel 3/4 x 1 1/2, (4) stringers ~ 3/4 x 3/4, and 4 gunnels ~3/8 x 1 1/2, you can get the breasthooks and floorboards for the Yaquina and Willamette from a sheet of 1/4" ply. The Columbia requires 1 sheet plus another piece ~ 24 x 36.

There's a guy in Virginia who will start building a Columbia class soon. I've sent him the specs. I'll be developing a Build Guild from his experiences.

We'll be building another Willamette class canoe once we get finished with restoring a 16' fiberglass canoe we've been given. I'll let you know how it goes.


Just Cruisin' -- E boat motors and More

Electri-Cal
 

My 48v. E- Bike // Schwinn conversion is a total success over time.  I had a Golden Motor set for a different project, but sold that to a guy for an inboard motor conversion.  My Minn Kota is a total success as a complete underwater system, twin motors and Kipawa props.  I was going over newer stuff on Golden Motor today, they do have regular clamp on ev outboards up to 10 hp,   Shaft length is adjustable to popular lengths without any "kit".   So, there is another reliable option to Minn Kota at a lower price, plus FREE DELIVERY, from China.  I'm looking to try a couple of the new 10 hp. props to try out, maybe better props than a torquedoo, or the Kipawas I have as a good test project.

I like their stuff a lot, might even start on another e-project, since they have parts kits too, and complete rear drive axles kits for builders.  I know Morgan cars had oak frames, and again Golden Motor has everything to make good reliable vehicle or marine set ups.  The new ev  street motorcycles are awesome looking too. The options are many, parts easy to get, a reliable company and great performance from my experience.   The sun just peeked out, time to foll out my e-bike, pedals easy --- plus up to say 30 mph on the street, umm -- without a license, or insurance added on.  I also bought a super bike or motor lock that's carbide tough, cut proof flexible lock from aussie land for security , locks totally pick proof.  A great way to pedal furthur for exercise, keep the bike secure, but without having to "whuff it up" the hills you don't like, har !!!! 

Later, coots,  Cal
