Re: Mark Neuhaus is famous!

 

Are you saying that Mark has a closetful of the original Atlas of Oregon Lakes? <g> I the decades since mark worked on the original they've moved into the 21st century and gone online. But it looks like they've "deproved" the interfacxe since the last time I was there <sigh>:

I went to Paulina lakes wiki and it referenced the same atlas but did not not reference Mark.

Mark Neuhaus
 

Famous or infamous, it's still the same thing. I can't get no respect.  :-)

I was a research assistant at PSU for my graduate degree and the project was funded by the federal Clean Water Act, funneled through DEQ.  We ended up publishing a volume called Atlas of Oregon Lakes, which is long out of print. And all profits from that book went into a fund at PSU and they are now producing an online and updated version, if I recall correctly. 

And, yes, I do have a couple of the original books, as they gave each of us a few.  And I remember giving one to the Coots library, although I don't remember who took charge of it when we were at Paulina Lake one year.

Big Catboat 4 Sale in Astoria

 

Scott Coleman called me with a tip on an interesting sailboat: a 2005 homebuilt 22' Ted Brewer catboat for sale on eBay by a charity. Latest bid $1,150.

"It is a Ted Brewer Cat Boat design. The builder bought the design and built it to specs in 2005. It is a wooden boat built with marine plywood and oak, complete with brass window frames and fixtures. The cabin is spacious for a 22 ft. Boat with padded benches, an insulated fridge, a sink, grill, propane fireplace for heat, and while there is no toilet, it has the space for it. It has a middle table that folds down for extra space. The keel is retractable to make it easy to ride up onto a beach if desired. The rudder is protected for that purpose as well. The cockpit holds 8 people comfortably. According to the previous owner the boat sails easily even in a light breeze. The previous owner owned a sailboat charter company in Portland, OR . Some light rot in the edge of the roof of the cabin. Not extensive, and the roof over it has been fixed so there is no leaking. The ceiling of the cabin has a small leak coming from the above window which opens. No major issues to note.

22' doesn't sound very Big, but this boat has a 10' beam, so it is indeed Big. You aren't gonna be trailering this around feom lake to lake for daysailing. <g> But it could be a great boat for someone who has a place to keep and use it.

Toledo Wooden Boat Show -- CANCELLED

 

Thursday the Guv extended a ban on large events until October, so NO Toledo Boat Show. <sigh>

The Coot messabout at Fern Ridge is also cancelled, as well as the Electronics and Radio Workshop at the end of this month. We'll try again with the Workshop someday... It might end up being a winter event.

Re: Coots Lunch w. Social Distancing? Thursday?

Paul Bartlett
 

Hi John, if lunch is still on could I attend lunch? I don’t have exact address - as I remember it’s 24th street(?) in Albany.

Hope all’s well. In other news I’ve been diagnosed with Parkinson’s. So I’m currently on leave from work - which for me is not normal. Looks as if I’ll be going through some uncharted waters...(!).

Thanks, Paul

Re: Almost forgot, open lake

Josh
 

Exactly, only I forgot to bring lifejackets so didn't go out more than about 20 feet, just enough to get a feel for it. Mercer lake is really beautiful but like your map shows, very narrow. The boat ramp is long and gradual.


Re: Almost forgot, open lake

 

Is that one of those fishing float tubes you sit in with your feet sticking out the bottom, Josh?

I've never boated on the little lakes north of Florence. I should. Mercer and Sutton look the most interesting:

Re: New to me - shop tool storage

Jove Lachman-Curl
 

If I was doing it again I'd probably just do what this guy did. small holders screwed on where you like.
for larger items the french cleat method seems to make more sense, for small things attaching them directly is so easy.

We had the same experience at the boat shop with the tool holders wiggling and sometimes falling off. We solve the problem by putting wedges between the top of the cleat and the bottom of the cleat above it.Problem solved simple and effective.

I’m definitely interested in pictures of what works for people. My board is below.

I made a 4x4 tool board with French cleats. I’m not sure I’d do it again since the tool holders tend to wiggle a little and a couple get close to falling off sometimes so I e added a screw to those. Generally I’m happy with the ability to move things around and it’s cheaper and much more attractive than a peg board system with all those holes and wire objects, at least to me.
I’m interested in tips to make it work better though. I’ve found that the tool holder needs to hang down somewhat to work well. Coming straight out it can pry it’s self off with repeated vibration of removing tools.

I have used french cleats to create clamp racks and to hang some wood cabinets on the shop/garage walls.  They work great!   

One tip is to save some small pieces of the cleats as templates for the next time.  Makes set up easier.

TSCA Council Nominations - DEADLINE EXTENDED

John Weiss
 

Forwarded from Capt. Suz, TSCA President.

Note that David's e-mail address was incorrect in yesterday's e-mail. The correct e-mail address is below.

The nomination period will be extended for at least 2 weeks. Our bylaws require a 2-week voting period after ballots are mailed (or e-mailed), so we will announce the voting period when nominations are closed and ballots are sent out. ALL voting will be via electronic means, and instructions will be included with the e-mailed ballots.

From: TSCA.President <tsca.president@...>

I think it makes sense to extend the deadline since "sheltering in
place" to many folks means freeze all my activities and opportunities
until the coast is clear.

Covid has changed the schedule on everything....

Another French cleat idea - extra pegboard wall area

Electri-Cal
 

I would think with two mounting boards it would be possible to cover the area between tht top angled board, and a straight cut bottom board with pegboard material between them.  Then you could hang cases on the top, move as needed sideways, and use pegboard wherever space was left open.  I might try that one, I hate to give up all pegboard areas, and expose garage studs again, but this solves all the problems at one time.  Maybe glue in some solid panel insulation board first, but thin enough to use the hooks through the pegboard without hanging up on fluffy stuff.  Hummm, warmer, more wall still useful, and portable to an extent, -- works for me.
