Bummed me out. I use those for my solo camp meals. Guess it’s back to Mountain house freeze dried and Luna bars..

Re: Turning Over a Tolman Skiff

 

Lookin' Good, Randy. That's a Big boat! It might have been difficult to turn a boat that wide just with muscle power, looks like the continuous rope sling worked dandy.

Unpainted boat bottoms? Must be too cold for shipworms, barnacles, and other
fouling. I'll bet they use a mixture of oil and pine tar on 'em, like they
use on the topsides of a lot of Scandinavian boats.

BTW, a literal translation of "snekke" is "worm". There must be something
lost in translation, as they say...

His widow is selling the boat---cancer sucks. L

Interesting how in Norway it's common to have the boat bottoms
unpainted (probably varnished?) while topsides are often painted.

We even saw very large metal fishing boats with at least wooden
cladding up front and underwater.

I'm not sure why.

Re: Tuffy and Me on Fern Ridge

 

I sure like it too! :o) We went out for another, longer, sail this afternoon. Tuffy is well mannered, comfortable (except for a too low cockpit coaming, but I was spoiled by Pearl <g>), and she moves along pretty good in light airs. When the breeze picks up she heels over and scoots, but not very fast. As I mentioned before, she feels like she's going fast because the propeller is spinning like mad. <g> But she's only 15' long, with 400 lb. of concrete in her keel, so there's only so much she can do. <g>

I got some lines tangled up after hoisting the sails in Richardson Bay and got caught by a hefty gust off the butte from abeam with the sails sheeted in. Tuffy heeled over quite a bit, but settled in as the flare and ballast did their work as we headed up onto the wind. :o) Reassuring.

With her long keel Tuffy doesn't turn on a dime, and she doesn't have a mizzen to help, so it'll take some practice to get my tacking technique perfected. But she was never meant to be a race boat. <g> But the long keel also means that you don't have to be on your toes all the time, and can let your mind wander, or watch the sailboats and water and birda... :o)

I've gotta do some fettling of the standing rigging. All this darned wire is new to me. <g> There are these funny spring gizmos that are _supposed to_ lock the turnbuckles, but they don't. <sigh> The turnbuckles are sort of semi-bottle screws, with an opening only on one side, so there's no wasy way to wire them. No locknuts of course. I'll figure something out...

Re: Turning Over a Tolman Skiff

David Graybeal
 

Well... since Turning Over A New Leaf seems out of the question... this'll do. This'll do quite nicely.


Turning Over a Tolman Skiff

Randy Torgerson
 

The Tolman is Over. 

On June 20th, the hull of my Tolman was turned over.  Weeks of preparation paid off with no one getting hurt and only a few minor scratches on the hull.   90 percent of the work is done and I only have 180 percent to go to finish the boat. 

 

The first step was to raise the boat enough to move the building form out of the way. 


 

The building form has fixed caster wheels so the boat can be pushed left or right but cannot roll out of the shop in to the parking lot.  Temporary swivel casters were added to the right side to roll the building form out when it was on edge.




The hull was raised up to that when on its side it would clear the concrete floor.  That is about 900 pounds hanging on two ropes tied in an endless loop.  You can see the scaffolding that prevents the boat from being moved out of the bay and just rolled over using manpower.

 

 

As the hull approaches vertical it becomes harder to tip the hull over. 

 

 

Working hard now to get the hull to flip. 

 

 

The hull is now upright. 


 And on the cradle. 


 

The next step is sanding and finish fiberglassing the inside of the hull.  Some of the inside joints have been glassed but not all.  I have decided that I am going to change the transom arraignment but that come later.

 

I will be done in June; I just don’t know which year.

Randy

A bit on varnishing at senior age -- also new home roof, so I cn boat again !!

Electri-Cal
 

Yesterday I did stain and varnish on all the trim mouldings for new panels that cover the roof tail ends.  Making a nice effect to match new roof shingles.  Last night I got reminded of age, the act of finishing the trim without a mask was enough to keep me up woth a hot shower, and asprin for an hour or so. The moral of course, is wear that paint mask, even if it looks stupid and seems too elderly --  in front of a roofing crew, another reminder to sensitivity of vapors. I still would have done this quarter mould trim though,  Every time we look out the window the solid oak stained and varnished trim ought to be cool looking with lighter home color under those covered and vented  eaves.

Now I can get back to that depth camera.  I was going to install it the other day.  Then I had a brilliant (maybe) idea.  I ordered a clear sapphire chrystal lens, ground flat.  I will inset that in the camera pod so I can remove the camers even while under way.  Then I can remove it, or replace the parts without having to tear into the pod itself.  Anybody can caulk it in, but then there is no good way to fix stuff or a safety if something goes wrong.  That lens is coming in soon, then we'll see ho,ho !!. 

However, the roofing crew was pretty spectacular in execution on the job.  My wife and I have both had some foundarion in construction, and these guys did every move right.  Excellent material choices, good roof prep and supplies delivered on time.  They also fixed some stuff, and removed an old unused chimney, so the roof looks better finished.  That and the new soffits will help get a higher price on our place, that's like money in the bank that can't be done easy, with a rushed sale schedule.  The first thing a buyer asks is how long will the roof last, and does it look weather tight.  Good to know we can point to details on a custom job -- done at a couple grand less than other  bids, without corner cutting, and a full warranty for a new owner later.

Tuffy sails real nice, though I still have some fettling to do. When she gets going it _feels_ like we're really flying, because you can feel the propeller of the electric motor spinning away like mad. <g> Not bad looking for a plastic boat. :o)
