The boat has to be shunted out so the RV can snuggle under cover.
Just the way it is after 15 years, 20+grand and no joy.

Ylee: I probably have more than 15 roofs out there I suped the metal on and so far only the first one ('88) leaks. I went back and lifted the panels there and two or three other roofing contractors have been in on it. I don't think that one is actually a leak but some form of moisture condensation.
We learned as we went in those days. Still do.

Let us know how the metal roofing works out; this may be a skillset I will have to learn in the future!

I can't point my finger at anyone leaving the lights on without having three fingers point at me!

Ylee:
Looks like we are finally on the same shift. Seems normal to check your blog and know you just left work. I am figuring out what time of day it is here. The Flu/Cold has abated somewhat but snoozes in late afternoon seem to be mandatory - at least according to Tloml. She sees me nodding off after supper and prints out a work order: "Go to bed!"
Gunther came over this morning and we started looking at making scaffolding to start the metal roofing here. Decided to hop in the pickup and drive to my #2 daughter's to get a load of lumber but the battery was flat. Someone had left the headlights on while I was down south - not sayin' who did that but even the RV hooked up on jumper cables would not turn the starter. Put a charger on the battery for a couple of hours and the engine cranked up fine but by then the day was done.
Tallness is a double edged sword. Yes I can reach the top shelf and according to some (who leave the lights on in the pickup now and then) I also build the top shelf too high for "normal" folks. I figure I have spent half my life reaching higher from a ladder and the other half on my folded knees putting flooring or base board down.

I was devastated when I had to finally admit I needed glasses at about 14 years old - My career plan at that time was simple: I wanted to fly jet fighter aircraft and as Mark Knoffler sings in "Ride across the River":
"We don't give a Damn who the Killin' is for".
When I walked out of the Optometrist's office I could read the details on the railway box cars a hundred yards out. Not such a bad deal since many years later I had a drink with a short RCAF jet pilot and he just looked at me and said:
"You are too tall. When and if you have to eject both your knees would be torn off by the canopy."

Lost my glasses during the southerly run. Luckily I always carry a spare old set when travelling. In fact I think the old ones ($750) are still better than the newer ones ($300). You get what you pay for, eh? One regret is that I paid for that "anti-glare" bluish tinted surfacing on the old set.
I won't be paying for "anti-glare" again because it smudges even if your eyelashes touch it.

Good morning:
I've got good WiFi but these sisters and mothers of mine are serious talkers so if you are not packing boxes or hanging blinds about the house you are listening to stories or telling them.
I can not find the little stylus so my big shakey fingers are doing double duty here.
Ylee: SamGal is great for viewing blogs and I'm getting better on the keypad.Now if only the ciffee would kick in.
BriarCraft: Built my first boat at fourteen - not counting the raft/box that sank immediatly built at age <10 years so this blog might have to be quite a ramble.
Maybe I can figure out "voicetotext".

Been awhile since I've been by, so catching up...
I really like that Buckminster Fuller quote you found and posted in #16. A lot of wisdom in those words. Just about anyone can be a Trim Tab, given the right idea accompanied by enough motivation.

I see you got the boat photo posted all right, but in #27 you seemed unsure if you could do it. If you mark a photo as a "portrait" when posting it, you can put up just about any photo or graphic you want. That's the key.

Can't comment about any of the mechanical conversations "floating" around here. I leave that stuff to others who know what they're doing.

Regardless, I know I'll enjoy a boat blog whenever you feel inspired.

Morning Rob:
I drove a Lincoln to work for a while but gave it away before I took the huge fenders off on cramped construction sites. It was a 2 door model and if you parked off level the door was so heavy it would yank you out of the car when you opened it..
Tloml uses her little Nissan for work as well so sometimes I can't put the driver's seat back until I clear the walkers and commodes.
The RV would be an ideal work van if I was allowed to use all the cupboard space for tools and wear hob nailed boots in there.
Speaking of which I suppose I should start loading.
I might not be on much for a day or two but I'll be checking in if I can find WiFi.

Years ago I remember calling my grandfather's Lincoln Continental "his truck" because he carried so many tools and supplies around in it. Grandmother's car was of course off limits for that kind of foolishness!

Good morning Ylee:
I was over at Bogon's reading latest and listening to "Hey Momma Rock Me"
Saw your comment pop up on the "Ticker".
If WU sets up any more widgets we'll be as fast as Twitter and Facebook - I'm just guessing because I don't Tweet nor "like" anyone.
The idea of writing a blog about boats has been with me for quite a while. I started by taking old photos to "NotePad" and writing about the photo. That computer crashed and whatever was in there is gone. Now stuff we write goes up into the Cloud (s?).
Just girding up here for the drive and move - gotta figure out what tools and materials I can take in the RV. Tloml says:
"Don't you turn the RV into anything like your truck!"

Both boats have main battery switches. I bought a Klein CL2000 t'other day and found no stray currents anywhere but if I leave the main on it flattens the batteries.

"Probably get myself in to the "Darwin Awards" trying to cable up that kind of boost anyway."

If it doesn't have one, install a battery switch.
Boats are like farm tractors when it comes to switches and accessories grounding out just enough to kill batt.

Most of that story is well in the past. All I've got to worry about now is one boat sitting at the dock and a buddy's 31' with low batteries sitting beside mine. He came over to work on it last week end and found the batteries were too low to start the Cat diesel. I had no trouble starting it a month ago and left everything as I had found it so what drained the batteries I have no idea.
The shore power at these docks is under construction so we will need to trundle a good sized battery booster pack or a gen set down there to charge the batteries.
I have three marine/RV batteries on our boat and a 60 amp alternator but Buddy does not think that would be enough to crank the Cat starter. Since he's a marine electrical engineer I expect he's correct.

Hey Rob:
I see from your blog you are busy just now.
Boats: "Be careful what you wish for etc." Nuff said for now.
In some ways the boat/RV shed is a stockpile of drying firewood. I did not apply for a permit and the back outer corner is encroaching off my property..
Gunther just arrived so we go off to finish the double doors we've been installing for a neighbor.
TomTom successfully updated.

Good morning: It's about -2C. with weak sun coming up. No wind noticed. I'm waiting for the TomTom GPS to update - another 20 minutes or so. Then I'm going to try to fool it to give me a route that does not include a ferry ride to find the new rental place my sister and mother are moving to.
Both new GPSs tell me to drive over a gully on a non existing road to go anywhere from here and take ferries which I do not need nor want. The cost to take an over height and over length vehicle on a ferry has inflated to the point where it becomes cheaper to drive around the inlet.
I'm taking the RV because I might stay over a night or two to help settle the new tenants into their abode.
Though the new (to us) place is said to be spacious enough there will be a lot of kerfuffle and - pause:
TomTom just flashed me with:
"Please keep your device connected. 1:20 hours remaining."
Talk about being a slave to technology.
Where was I?
Oh yes: The comfort of the RV.
Bought a small Dehumidifier and have it running in the vehicle for the last couple of days.
Sleeping in an enclosed space in cold (around freezing) conditions produces an amazing amount of condensation inside the vehicle. One can leave the propane furnace running but I don't sleep well with the furnace and fan switching on and off near my feet.
The GPS now says: "29:40 mins. remaining."
I don't think it's been 50 minutes since I was told the update would take 1:20 hours but maybe modern miniaturization applies to time as well?

Good afternoon theshepherd:
Good information there, thanks.
I got fairly lucky with the first power plant: bought a 283 with a blower and replaced the blower with a hiRise Manifold. That engine "shook Hands" with the jet but at some point I overheated it. Traded the motor and blower for the 350 but it had been cammed to come in to it's power peak at about 5500 RPM and the boat just sloshed around as you so elegantly put it. I guess I was lucky that the engine could not rev up. Otherwise I think the jet would have torn itself apart.
My uncle built the boat from "Popular Boating" plans for the "Vixen" from a 1951 issue and installed the Doughty-Hamilton jet drive himself.


Sounds like you are experiencing complex natural phenomena.

Good luck.

I agree.
There must be a story behind that boat worthy of it's own blog.
I'll shut up about boats until then.

Meanwhile, looks like a pretty stout shed/barn/workshop you have there!

Thanks for sharing the pics.

Oh...and speaking of pics. Once in the correct digital format, it doesn't matter if it is a digital pic or a scan. A lot of fine pics still taken on film.

I miss my old 35mm Canon.

Hey Rob:
I'm thinkin' hook the boat trailer to the RV and head east south east. Stop to see Shoreacres and see what she can do with the deck and trim. Maybe Shep will have a decent power plant by the time I get there (the last power I had was a detuned Chev 350) - gotta stop to talk to Pat as well. Gonna be quite a ride!


Ghost from the past ya got there, Mr. Y.
:)

I helped a friend once on one very similar to yours.
His didn't have the jet foot.

He used an automotive 350 and had to find a reverse direction prop to make it work...or try to work.
It ran like a cow stuck in mud. The power curve was all wrong. Marine cams are cut different.
You need peak hp around 5grand, not 4.
It's that hp/torgue thingy and when they shake hands and behave.
I warned him, he wouldn't listen. :(

He also used all automotive accessories also. That's a disaster waiting to happen as I'm sure you know, automotive starter/gens/carbs/fuel pumps, etc, are not explosion proof.

You can get a 350 marine long block for just under 2 grand. Standard or reverse rotation really doesn't affect the price much on marine engines. That would be what I would do if I didn't have the original engine to rebuild, which would be my first choice. Better yet, I would use the same size and model engine that came from the factory.

Then again, did that boat come from the factory with jet-drive??? If not, I would get the engine designed to power that particular drive system. Surely matching the two will result in plenty of pep and fuel economy.

I basically wasted a lot of time refinishing the Mahogany deck and interior to make a beautiful boat that won't run worth a poot and an accident waiting to happen.

I swore then, I would never again help someone do something the wrong way.



The bottom of the ocean is littered with

(pause for effect)



...bad decisions.

Beautiful video, not just the boat either. I like the music too: " Sippin' whiskey out the bottle".
I assume that the classic boat is a well preserved or new build ChrisCraft. Somewhere I have a VHS cassette with some footage of the "R Billy" from a chase boat.
You are right about the "need a bigger shop" part.

Good morning:
I bought a new 20' x 30' tarp and covered the boat yesterday. I used the PVC "A" frame that the snow collapsed on to the other boat to hold the tarp off the deck. By the way: the boat is (was) the M.V. "R Billy".
Rob:
I'll see if WU Photos will accept some pictures if the sun shows up today as predicted.
I must apologize to boat lovers: though I did build a boat shed for the "R Billy" the years of storage have not improved the once beautiful Bright Work. Sorry.
Shoreacres:
That workshop is quite the find. I hate to cut a large piece of any wood to make small bits so I store scraps and usually by the end of the project they have been used up.
First round is on me. I gotta let Tloml have this machine for a few minutes but I'll try to reply and maybe get some photos up soon.

Rob ~ Yup, but not to worry. After 22 years of working in boatyards and on the docks, I've come to appreciate the joys of being in an environment where three basic questions pretty much sum up everything:

1. Can you do the job?
2. If you screw up, will you take responsibility?
3. Who's buying?

Speaking of boats - I just had a funny experience. I'd walked over to get my mail, and on the way back, I heard something that sounded for all the world like a circular saw. It was just down from my place, and sounded like it was coming from a garage. I thought I'd go have a peek, and the closer I got the more I could get a whiff of sawdust.

Turns out it was a saw, and a garage full of teak, mahogany, mesquite and who knows what-all, all nicely slabbed. The guy who was working the saw is working on his boat. He's got a 44' Gulfstar sailboat he's taken down to the hull, and he's doing a complete retrofit, including mesquite flooring, all new exterior teak, mahogany bulkheads and trim, etc. etc.
I haven't seen so much good-looking cured wood in a long time.

He's living here at the apartments while he works on the boat and renting a garage to use as a shop. The best part is he said I could have as much tiny teak scrap as I wanted for cutting plugs and some good sawdust, too. What a fruitful trip to the mailbox!

I went looking for a quote from Buckminster Fuller and found this on Wiki:
"The engineer Buckminster Fuller is often cited for his use of trim tabs as a metaphor for leadership and personal empowerment. In the February 1972 issue of Playboy, Fuller said:
Something hit me very hard once, thinking about what one little man could do. Think of the Queen Mary—the whole ship goes by and then comes the rudder. And there's a tiny thing at the edge of the rudder called a trim tab.
It's a miniature rudder. Just moving the little trim tab builds a low pressure that pulls the rudder around. Takes almost no effort at all. So I said that the little individual can be a trim tab. Society thinks it's going right by you, that it's left you altogether. But if you're doing dynamic things mentally, the fact is that you can just put your foot out like that and the whole big ship of state is going to go.
So I said, call me Trim Tab.
—Buckminster Fuller"

My first paid employment was spraying some rendition of weed killer on a neighbor's fields: 12 years old, 25 cents per hour and no instructions about mixing and handling whatever it was.
One day many years later I was swabbing wood preservative on lumber to build a low lying deck and put on some gloves. The "old guy" on the crew (who was then much younger than I am now) asked why I bothered with gloves. I said:
"They say this stuff can cause birth defects - funny looking children."
He thought a moment and said:
"Children look funny anyway."

I used to use tractor implement paint in spray cans that had lead in it in the mid 80s; went on real good, as I recall! I probably inhaled some while I was painting, but I didn't suffer any side effects; any addling of the brain today I attribute to age! :)

Ylee;
I wondered why I was awake at 0134 - does Bot Alert send out a tone to wake us when there is a new comment?
Naah, I've just been sleeping 10 (sometimes 12 or more) HOURS PER DAY.
I do try not to read too much Monbiot at a time and he usually obliges by only posting once a week or so.
You say there is something new there?
I'll go check it out. Pause.
I'm back.
Had to re-read your comment.
We had zip/zero fear of lead, asbestos, plastic, aerosols and over population/consumption way back when I reared my head. Only traditional terrorists were mentioned - ETA and the Albanians I think it boiled down to.
'Course there were the "Commies" and the "Yellow Peril".... Come to think there was something called a "Cold War".
In those days we were lucky if the AM radio worked and the few TVs were called "Black and White" though they appeared to me to be "Blue".

Monbiot's latest article is fascinating, but scary, given where most of the world's terrorists come from. The article before that is just plain depressing; glad I've never had lead poisoning....

Monbiot analyzes a number of studies linking early exposure to lead in the environment with aggression and violent crime.

1C. light rain with a Wind Warning up this morning.
Thought I was on the mend up till yesterday but late in the day I cut the hinge lands for one side of a double door set we were working on upside down.
There are so many ways to screw up an installation but very few ways to get it right.
The good news is I feel somewhat better this morning and I would have needed to rip the doors down a bit to fit the existing opening anyway.

Good to see you here BriarCraft:
I think I chose the roof slope because the 12/12 angle is easy to remember: 45 degrees on the chop saw. I used the same slope on a temporary house to cover the boat I was working on two years ago and when it snowed here I was out knocking snow off the plastic sheet at about 2200hr. I slept about 4 hours and the whole thing collapsed. I have never worried about the greenhouse but maybe I should because snow comes here (or not) in such a variety of conditions.

Nice looking greenhouse you've got there. I wish the roof on mine was as steep as yours. When it snows here (thankfully not too often), I have to go out and knock the snow off every few hours because it isn't steep enough to slide on its own.

Good morning Ylee:
For now the boat is tarped and still on the trailer in the yard. I don't know what else to do with it. Took some pictures to a local Maritime Museum but they really don't have enough space there.
I'll probably pull the trailer out and leave the boat on blocks.

Where ae you going to do with the boat? Are you going to put a cover on it, or are you going to find another place to store it?

Good luck on the upgrade!

Good morning Bogon:
Thanks for the tune.
The boat trailer in the first picture is made by "Road Runner".
I was hanging around on the blogs last night and got a "Blue Screen": system crash. Shut everything down expecting the worst but this morning the computer started up fine and just complained about not being shut down correctly.
I had already talked to the fellow that built it and he wants to upgrade it anyway.
So I might not show up in comments for a day or so. I can read blogs on the SamGal but typing anything there is laborious.
