Re: Fred Murphy tug boat.

Okay then, got all six holes dug, or I should say the boys did. Even my youngest got to do a couple. I only had them dig them 3' since its not a forever structure. They now have a better understanding of "digging in sticky clay". http://s23.postimg.org/jlsnqibsb/boat_shed_post_holes_075.jpg Yep, tha...

Re: Fred Murphy tug boat.

Matt and I got everything laid out to start on holes for poles. :oops: :lol: I just used rebar cutoffs and masons twine to lay it out. Matt thought the 3-4-5 method of assuring a square corner was pretty cool. The temporary structure is going to be 16' x 32'. When he and his brother start digging ho...

Re: Fred Murphy tug boat.

Now, on an up and onward note, the boys and I removed and disassembled a trellis that was in the way of our soon to be temporary boat house. I don't think the little woman was crazy about this, but thus far it isn't a hill she's willing to die on. :lol: Next item will be: the digging of post holes. ...

Re: Fred Murphy tug boat.

Hmmmm..........imagine TPTB, sending mixed signals. :o :lol:

Personally, I think the wisest course of action, or at least the one I intend to follow, is to never dump black water overboard, but to not worry about gray water.

Re: Fred Murphy tug boat.

Charts for inland rivers and lakes are fairly straight forward and don't require much explanation. Once on the intercoastal waterway or more open water it changes and at least to me becomes more complex. Hence the purchase of the book to help me sort through this. Still several years until we plan ...

Re: Fred Murphy tug boat.

Ray, I'd be interested in hearing what you learn from the navigation book. I'm planing to Down load gps and a chartploter on my iPad. I think that and a good VHF radio should get me started. I don't think I'll look at radar until I get into the gulf and beyond.

Re: Fred Murphy tug boat.

Ray, nice work, as usual. Your findings mirror mine, gray water is no issue about 99% of the time. This makes sense to me, its logical. I'm not comfortable with the idea of dumping black water overboard, tho lots of people do it. If I thought I'd find convenient pump out facilities at every gas dock...

Re: Mid year Titan progress

Hard to go wrong with a Kubota. Keep the oil and fuel clean and it should last forever in a pleasure boat. Its sad how many diesel engine owners, especially sailboat owners, don't keep up on maintenance.

Re: Fred Murphy tug boat.

Geeze, I wish my plans would get here. I figured a week was plenty of time, but my UPS tracking number doesn't show anything yet so I'm not overly optimistic. :roll: I'm wanting to get my material lists created. A crude one comes with the study plans, but parts of it make no sense, so I'm hoping the...

Re: Fred Murphy tug boat.

Ray, nice work on the gray water issue.

Have you heard of all the problems Lake of the Ozarks is having with ecoli outbreaks? It's believed that's largely due to boats (really big ones) dumping large amounts of sewage in the lake. I wouldn't swim in that water for anything!
