Re: Nifty Boarding Ladder!

If you're short of space and have a flat transom, this may be a good choice. Detaches easily and quickly. stows in a relatively small space. Comes in a 4-step model also.

My windrose needs a boarding ladder.
It has dangerously high freeboard for a small boat.
I built a nice wooden ladder, but need to work out where and how to mount it.
Thanks.

Re: Silly Organization

 

If you relate to what you see on the Web page of the Dull Men's Club, you just _might be_ a "Dull Man" who'd fit into their club. Even if you happen to be a woman. <g> "We're giving a good name to a four-letter word -- dull."

Steam is the friend of man. Steam engines are very human. Their very weaknesses are understandable. Steam engines do not flash back and blow your face in. They do not short-circuit and rive your heart with imponderable electric force. They have arms and legs and warm hearts and veins full of warm vapor. Give us steam every time. You know where you are with steam. (William McFee)

Amazon has it available for just under $9.00

- and Amazon com review says: -- quote--
There are three fully complete (not abridged) accounts of challenging
sea voyages. The reason I bought this book, however, was to read Ann
Davison's insightful, humorous, frightful account of her solo Atlantic
crossing in 1953/54 in a 25 foot sloop titled "My Ship is so Small."
Her account of the people she meets, especially the way she is treated
by various men, is more engaging even than the trials of sailing so
far alone before GPS and many safety aids. One of the better sea
stories written. Highly recommended.

Hi Elaine,
you will have to contact your local library and find out how they place a request for an Inter-library loan, they will find the closest copy of the book and order it, then you wait, sometimes a long time, and you will have the book for a limited time, no renewals or anything like that allowed.
hope it works out for you

Re: Book

 

Yipers! Surviving copies of Ms. Davidson's book must have golden pages. <sigh> Maybe you can get a copy through interlibrary loan, delivered to the Multnomah County Library in an armored truck. <g>

I saw her boat, Felicity Ann, at the last Port Townsend Festival. She's now based in Port Hadlock and being used to get women and girls involved in sailing. Alas, the organization's Web page isn't working right now, but they seem to have a presence on F******k. Contacting them may turn up a copy of Ms. Davidson's book you can borrow:

Nice boat! :o)
