Re: lots of reading material on shipbuilding

 

John McCallum is "walking on air" because he discovered a glossary of Duwamish words for the various parts of a canoe in the Survivor Library. :o)

http://www.survivorlibrary.com/library/types_of_canoes_on_puget_sound_1920.pdf

Now he's just gotta find someone who can figure out how to pronounce them...

Thanks again, Myles.

The braided rug is primarily for getting at low bits of work. . .I don't bend over as well as I used to and my bifocals only work a certain way, so my best shot is to lie down full length on the rug and scrunch around until I can reach AND SEE what I need to do. . .besides the rug, a 1' cube made out of six pieces of plywood is never far away. . .something to use to lean on to get stood back up again.  A step stool does well too, but the cube is good no matter which way it lands.  <grin!>

"Ship Building Made Easy" Hmmm. <g> Alas, a lot of the illustrations are missing in the scans. Makes some of the books worthless. :o(

Wow! that braided rug is a real nice touch...I think there might be one
of those on my shop floor too. Someplace under the 'pox drips, paint
pools, and resident sawdust. (Much like PL's) this place looks like a
doctor's office! Nice. dan.

Not only is it indoors, there's a propane heater too!  I can even epoxy in this weather.  Now if I'd only built the shop before I was 60. . .but one does what one can with whatever one has while one can. . .
Today I'm going to take the midships bulkhead back out and dress up one edge of it a bit. . .darn, should have seen that before now. . .

I hope all of you are surviving the bad weather alright. The cold only
reached down a bit south of Albany, so I'm doing fine.

Re: Willys

 

I don't know if there's a limit on attachments, but you didn't reach it, Dan. I got to see them all when you first posted them. You're email program may be set up so _it_ limits the amount of data it automatically downloads. There's probably a way to "download entire message", or something like that...

Re: Cedar oar work

Jove Lachman-Curl
 

Not sure if it's the same in OZ, but In the UK and Ireland Knock usually means a light blow, or "tap". you could knock a nail in with a hammer, or knock something into alignment.
I've not heard of knocking in a sexual reference, except for "getting knocked up".
knockers meant boobs where I grew up in Ireland.

One screw, then "knock" the blade into alignment and let the goo cure:

"The blade: Can be home made or bought (Gaco is one source). It is best
attached to the back of the shaft with one screw and epoxy bog. Now
knock the blade into alignment and allow the glue to set."

One of the sea songs I listen to has this line:

"When I was a young man in my prime
I'd knock those yeller girls two at a time"

Bringing Nelson back to life

 

Digital jiggery-pokery starting with his death mask...

As part of the podcast series special on the Battle of St Vincent the
Society for Nautical Research commissioned a video that uses artificial
intelligence and digital artistry to bring Nelson back to life. The results
are extraordinary. This is definitely something that can be applied to other
historical sources. Does anyone have any suggestions of other
maritime-related death masks, or important and interesting busts or
sculptures?


You can see the video here:

Richard, you're most likely right.  British slang is not consistent.  A common expression is (or was when I was younger) "I'll knock you up in the morning." Meaning I will contact you in the morning.

I took the same meaning from it as you did.  I mean, I just can't picture how that's gonna work using John's interpretation!

Re: Willys

 

Dan was pulling our legs, Case. He knows an old gearhead like me would never slap him with a fish for posting about his old Willys. ;o)

We're a group of friend here, so conversations about anything interesting are welcome, but we should try to come back to talking about boats now and then. <g>

I think it might have started back on the USENET rec.boats group -- at the end of posting something "off topic" you'd add some "obligatory nautical content", like Dan's picture of the Willys towing his Pelican. How about a boat repairman's old Dodge?

https://flic.kr/p/dKCi8A

The one I had was probably a little older. Cost me $5 because the PO couldn't keep the battery charged -- he'd put it in backwards! (Everybody but GM, and a few other oddballs, used positive ground in 1940). Burned oil by the gallon.

The Coot motto was first used for a motorcycle rally -- the Dallas to Oceanside British & European Motorcycle Run.

No Fees - No Prizes - No Rules

So don't expect me to get too upset over posts about non-nautical old iron. :o)
