Dan hasn't survived the winter yet -- there was till snow on the ground when I talked to him the other day. He and Jamie have been spending a lot of time out in the driveway sitting in Walkabout to get away from all the women in the house. ;o)

The "Jungle" is the old channel of Coyote Creek in the southeast corner of Fern Ridge. It winds through a jungly forest with Spanish moss draped trees, then comes out into an open marsh. A nice place to visit. In a small sailboat you can get up there in an hour and a half, or two, then take the rest of the day to beat back to the parks at the north end of the lake against the summer afternoon north wind . <g>

I'll throw this out here in public because it has bearing on the scheduling of this completely UNOFFICIAL visit from Dan: me and Mary are gonna be spending April 17-19th at a hotel in Yachats. I get my second jab on the 28th, and Mary gets hers about the same time, so we'll be invincible by then. <g>

To start a new topis, Dan, just send an email to oregoncoots@groups.io .

Fri, sat, Sunday are my busiest shifts of the week. 


Finally, A rear deck !

Electri-Cal
 

By the next show, should be finished with the covered rear deck on Surprise.   Been a longtime A" Comin around !!  Took a couple measurements, and it looks like a couple good size solar panels will fit just fine.  I still want to get under the deck, but it's made in two removable sections so one hinge should do that.  Gives me a covered area for camp gear, as needed.

OOps, time for another event, ---  Cal

Re: New member

 

Welcome back aboard, Kent. The Tenderly looks like a Good Boat:

https://www.clcboats.com/shop/boats/wooden-sailboat-kits/tenderly-dinghy.html

I talked to Kent earlier today and he asked how to deal with epoxy drips and runs. I warned him away from sanding, and recommended a heat gun and scraper. Like this:

Any other tips?

Jan and I get our 2nd jab on the 29th John.  I got lucky with appointments right when Walgreens was starting.  But it really is the hunger games jab competition right now.  Our kids and sons in law were way ahead of us as teachers and 1st responders.  All in their 30s lol.  Good luck to all Coots.  

Fyi I did hear that Walgreens releases their shot appointments at midnight and only schedule out 3 days so maybe being a night owl will pay off.  Note that you need to set up an online My Walgreen's account and be signed in to it to try for an appointment.  

Best,

Steve Miller

I get my second jab on the 28th! :o) Right now it's still a hectic
process to get an appointment for the jabs. Pity the poor people who
don't have access to the Interweb, or aren't good with technology, or
whose mind and fingers aren't quick enough. <sigh> When Mary tried to
get an appointment with Lane County Public Health she found that when
she chose a slot, somebody else got it while she was filling out the
form! Fortunately, she persisted and got lucky. She got her first jab
Sunday.

A friend of my sister has a friend who's a pharmacist, so my sister got
news that Albertson's/Safeway was getting some doses and called me.
After trying several of the stores, and getting beat out like Mary did a
few times, I got myself an appointment at a Safeway. That's a heck of a
way to get the jabs! You shouldn't have to know someone who knows
someone who knows where the vaccine is available, and then be fast and
lucky enough to get one of the appointments. <sigh>

With more doses becoming available, maybe the process for getting a jab
will get easier. I sure hope so. As more groups get eligible, the folks
who are having trouble now getting appointments are going to be
competing against more, and younger and more nimble, people for the
available jabs. <sigh>

Right now there are a lot more people who want the vaccine than there
are doses to go around. In coming months we'll get more doses and get
most of them vaccinated, somehow. But to get back to something like
"normal" we need to get just about _everybody_ vaccinated. Don't get me
started on the people who _don't_ want the vaccine... I've already been
getting too "political". <g>

Good luck getting your jabs!

Re: Toledo Wooden Boat Show

 

I sure hope we can have a "real" boat show, but even if we can't we can have a gathering just for the Coots and other exhibitors, with proper precautions, down on the docks. Most Coots are of an age where they'll probably have their jabs by then (if you know someone who is having trouble getting a shot, help them).

Somewhere between that and a real show we could have boats displayed on land, then maybe some more activities, with the crowds limited somehow, and so on. Whatever looks like it can be done safely.

We'll know more in the next few months...

I am so very ready. And so very cautious. I thought I was fairly well insulated, but the fellow I share a shop with committed an indiscretion and got infected. By the time it showed up, and he got tested, and he got the results back... his 'infectious period' was over. And I'd had contact with him the whole time. Distanced contact, but some. Being older... I sure don't want to get it. And having grandchildren, I double-danged-sure don't want to be responsible for bringing it home to them. It's a real balancing act.

 

Good luck, everyone and stay safe.

Would be great to do the Toledo show again.  I would like to be in the water this time, but so much depends on scheduling, and health, that it's hard to predict that far out.  Just got my covid card, so all is well there.  Working on Surprise and using her is high on my list too.  Been out 3 times so far and weather was superb at Dexter lake, might get to the coast  lakes yet.  Battery understanding has helped a lot, good news for the last few runs as my sitting quietly, and "potttie time" runs out just about covers the time to switch to the other pack and head for the dock.
