Re: Navionics

 

As you zoom in to the chart, as you would when approaching a dangerous area, the red dots in dangerously shoal water become more apparent. See attachment.

I don't see any dangerously shoal depths until you get right up near the entrance to the Boat Haven. <shrug> I don't yet know what those scattered red dots mean, but they aren't a warning...

BTW, why do you not feel comfortable unless you've got 50' of depth? Riptide isn't a frigate, after all. ;o)

Interestingly, I've made the approach into the Port Townsend Boat Haven many times from the south, and have never run into dangerous depths during the approach as shown on that Navionics example.
On a slightly different topic, the red dots are difficult to see and are not standard charting practice (at least, not the USN standards, anyway). We always lined off danger depths in black pen to show where not to go. It would be helpful to have the dangerous area shaded red, perhaps, or barred red. Just my opinion, though.

Re: Thursday lunch

 

Good info, Jove. Thanks for sharing it. It's scary that the coronavirus survives so well in the air. For years I'd been told that, even though getting sneezed or coughed on is the surest way to catch them, bugs like the flu and colds are mostly passed on through secondary contact --
touching a surface infested with the virus and then picking your nose or rubbing your eye. Hence the emphasis on washing your hands (works for another nasty too, norovirus). The new coronavirus is a relative of some of the viruses that cause the common cold, so maybe we need to change the way we try to avoid colds too.

At any rate, keep washing your hands, and take care of yourselves.

Sorry. But try to find lead shot nowadays. ;o)

I forgot to mention that the biggest metal recycler in Eugene, Schnitzer's, doesn't handle lead at all!

See there John, I knew the Coots were smarter than most people; if you have a cold, stay home.

Anybody want a Puddle Duck??

MylesJ Swift
 

Daffy Duck is for sale. I was getting ready to build SCAMP when I found a year old one for cost of materials (sorry David). I'll sell the Duck all at once or piece by piece. The hull and trailer are $250 each. The sailing gear is  $350 The electric boat gear is $300.  If you want everything the asking price is $1,000 less 20% for Coots. I need to make room, SCAMP will be here in the next couple of days. I live in Florence now.

Re: What's the Deal with Toilet Paper?

I heard today that this started in Japan. Their toilet paper is made in China. There was concern to get the older lots, pre-virus. It went live on the internet. I did drive by the Georgia Pacific mill in Camas on Sunday. It’s still in business.

I saw an ad for an enterprising taqueria. They were doing home delivery of a “taco kit”  dinner for 6 that consisted of several taco fillings, a stack of tortillas and 2 rolls of TP.

 

Don’t forget the Charmin “Forever Roll” which is a great bargain.

Re: Thursday lunch

 

Sounds like you guys were doing it right, especially if you had the garage doors open, which you'd want to do anyway on a day like today. We need to be careful, but careful social interaction is good for the soul. I hope everybody washed their hands! <g>

I skipped lunch because I've got a cold and I don't want to risk giving it, or whatever it might be, to anyone else. I've been staying close to home and puttering around on the boats...
