Nice Bill

Underwater lights? Really nice touch. Your retirement looks like you are very busy.

Will you have room for a decompression chamber :D Are you really building the Nautilus? It looks big enough.

Nice work.

Re: Trip Preparation

Just left our Elks club. I was trying to explain to the officer on way home how I was practicing for a future trip to down under. He didn't buy it either:(

Re: Cable and Pulley Steering Helm Help

If not it may be spring loaded and would need to be persuaded down, and at same time using a pipe wrench or something twist the flange counterclockwise off, or, could it just be pressed on? If so, carefully try a wheel puller. Can't really tell from the photo i...

Re: Happy 4th

Tony,

No harm intended and none done. In fact, right about now, I wish I knew how to say in Spanish "Would you like to sand my boat" to our neighbors from the south.??? :)

Re: CDX plywood as top rail?

Bill,

Tanks look great! But I really like how you ran the conduit through the bracing. Very clean and neat.

I do see lots of places you need to be a contortionist to get to :) Have you had to call 911 to get your body removed from anywhere yet?
