Re: "Virtual" Toledo Boat Show in August

 

Those of us who don't use F******k should let the Port of Toledo know, and tell them about alternatives. The Port Manager, Bud, is a real Boat Nut, and the Port has been a big supporter of the Coots, so be polite.

What are the alternatives, Pete?

There isn't gonna be a "real" Wooden Boat Show at Toledo this year, but
the Port is gonna host a Virtual one. Unfortunately, it's gonna be on
F******k. <sigh>

I can't find the F******k page for the Boat Show, but I suppose the Port
will tell us where it is before the Virtual show.

Greetings!

The Port of Toledo hopes you and your family have remained safe and
healthy through this first part of 2020.     It has been an
unpredictable three months, with more unknowns ahead.   The Governor’s
Plan for Rebuilding a Safe and Strong Oregon calls for cancellation of
all festivals through September 2020, which includes our Wooden Boat
Show.  Although disappointing, the most important concern is for the
health of our community as well as for the exhibitors, vendors, sponsors
and volunteers that make our show so special each year.

In August, we will host a virtual Wooden Boat Show on Facebook, please
follow our Port of Toledo Wooden Boat Show page. We will encourage
exhibitors to share photos and videos of their beautiful wood boats, we
will post photos and videos from previous year’s shows and of course,
there will be Wooden Boat Show T-shirts (from previous years).

We will miss seeing you this year and want to thank you for supporting
our Community Event.  We look forward to seeing you again next year, 
August 21 & 22, 2021 for our next Wooden Boat Show and Waterfront Festival.

TSCA - John Gardner Small Craft Workshop 2020 CANCELLED

John Weiss
 

[Bcc to TSCA Council, Chapter reps, group forums]

-------- Forwarded Message --------
Subject: John Gardner Small Craft Workshop 2020
Date: Wed, 3 Jun 2020 18:50:24 -0400
From: Bill Rutherford <smallcrafter@...>

Hello All: I wanted to let you know the summation of responses from our Board regarding our decision not to hold the John Gardner Small Craft Workshop this year. It was a difficult decision but we think it is best to be cautious with this late spring event.  The consensus was to respect the many decisions individuals make on whether or not to travel, mingle and get active in boating group activities.

I think one of our Board Members put it best, "As things stand, I expect holding the event at the end of June would be disappointing...too soon for me, and possibly for most other small craft fans.” Another member’s positive response that he is "interested in helping out in any way I can” is much appreciated but combined with the tight timing of Phase III here in CT (June 20 is only 5 days before our planned event), limits on out-of-state travel (14 day self-quarantines recommended) and the declining, but still high hospitalization rate (434 people yesterday compared to the Governor’s goal of less than 100 before opening Phase III), it is most wise to not hold the Workshop this year.

People have been very considerate, staying home and halting the spread. That strong community attitude still prevails. It would be overly optimistic to assume small craft fans would suddenly convene three weeks from now, particularly members of higher at-risk groups like our slightly gray-haired small-crafters.

We thank you for your special participation in our past Workshops and look forward to next year. As we have always said, anniversaries come around once a year. Thanks to the research team at the Seaport’s Collections Research Center we have fine examples of original documents from 1970 that we can share. With travel and accommodation restrictions relieved, travel for our far-flung fans will be easier. We look forward to start planning ideas and activities for our next Workshop.

We much appreciate all you do to support Traditional Small Craft. Hope you get out on the water this summer. Should adventures ensue, please pass them along and we will share them on our Chapter’s "News Notes."

Best Regards,
Bill Rutherford

Farewell to Another Depoe Bay Icon

 

Pogo Robison crossed the bar for the last time yesterday morning about 1:30, at OHSU in Portland. He'd been battling "fibrosis" for some time. Pogo's dad, Fred, founded Dockside Charters, and we got to know the Robison clan through holding a Boat Show on their doorstep. They're all good people, but Pogo was the most Cootish. We'll miss him:

What is the city of Depoe Bay gonna do now without Pogo taking care of things by leaning on a shovel?

Re: Tuffy's Electrics

 

In case anyone tuned in late, my Nordica 16, Tuffy, has what I think is half of Cal's electric motor setup on Surprise. I have on 80 lb. Minn Kota bolt-on motor bolted to the side of Tuffy's keel, and Cal has two bolted to Surprise's bottom.

I might be interested in the big battery charger. It will charge just two batteries OK? How many amps maximum output? The 24 volt charger that came with Tuffy is a slow wheelchair battery charger.

But there's no place to plug in a charger out at Richardson. <sigh> Any ideas about a suitable 24 volt solar panel setup?

Oh, and a shout out to Earl! The hydraulic press I got from him works dandy for crimping battery cable terminals (with a suitable crimping gadget I already had). :o)

Re: Tuffy's Electrics

Wish I'd known that, John.  I have enough electric stuff to do what you just did, or close to that.  I have a voltage led indicator that simply plugs into a ciggie lighter, voltage, rope end burner, floodlight plug, and depth finder input socket is more the point.  Good idea on the ammeter,  The voltage reducers I have work slick, probably have one or more laying around.  Biggest leftover item is a big 3 deep cycle battery charger, seperate for each drive battery, two to supply the 24 volt, plus one spare for take offs, reading lights, etc.  Fully automatic, commercial tough, and fast charge.  If you find somebody who needs 3 batteries charged, let me know, as this is a stand alone unit that doesn't do my twin 24v. two packs at once, so I'm probably relisting that soon. I added super plugs for easy maintenence, but I never used it. Could drop out the spare battery, just charge two, as an optional way to do it. 

Just a note,   Cal


Tuffy's Electrics

 

Tuffy's cuddy ("cabin" gives the wrong idea about it's comforts) is comfortable enough to lie down in, after your carefully back yourself into place on one of the bunks, and you can even roll over if you're careful, but it's mighty difficult for a grown Coot to _work_ in. <sigh> So I've done as much of the revamping of the electrics as possible outside the boat.

There was an extra furlong of battery cable going this way and that, feeding 24 volts to the motor and drawing off one battery for 12 volts for everything else. I ripped most of those cables out and put in a 24-12 volt convertor to supply everything but the motor. I added a little of my own complication by adding a shunt for a Link 10 ammeter and battery monitor, and fuses for the Link 10 and a depth sounder. This panel will screw onto the inside of the port cuddy bulkhead, then I just need to attach a few wires. Wish me luck. I'll try to remember to have my cell phone along, in case I get stuck:

https://flic.kr/p/2j6BdVV

There's a fuse panel and other 12 volt stuff on the inside of the starboard bulhead. I'm afraid to look at it. <g> For now, I'll just feed it 12 volts to it and hope for the best. It's getting to be time to go sailing! :o)

More Bits and Pieces

Electri-Cal
 

Chatted with Charlie Vader today.  He is coming over to do some custom  "one screen multi transducers" type wiring.  The Chinese diagrams don't look quite right.  Then I ordered an "ultra" pickup with mega lighting, that could be a night fishing, or dak water asset.  Don't know, but next Tuesday we  will breadboard it all up as 12 v.,  but the unit will handle 24 volt.  The same as the main motor battery pack, so will be testing performance on both sources.
