    US new case rate already peaked?

    I have been keeping daily track of the reported cases in the US ....early on the case count was increasing upper teens% to lower 20'S% on a daily basis...over the last week the daily increases have dropped to the 3%+ area.......the death rates early on were increasing in the upper teens % and over the last week the daily death increases has been in the 4-6% area...the one count that has not looked good is the total death count as compared to the total case count...early on it was around 1.5-1.7%....more receently it has come in at 5.5%+_...that death rate to total case count has risen about every day....

    Milling a centerboard from G10

    Theres an article in my Good Old Boat Magazine last month about a guy that made his new board for an Allied Seabreeze 35 out of Corian countertop material....might be worth a look....he's very happy with outcome...

    Everglades Challenge 2020

    Comments like this is why there has to be common sense rules and monitoring in place......you said safety.....read what I wrote.....Boats without current registration should not be on the water...that leads me to believe the race organizers aren't doing their job at inspecting....If I were doing it, it's very likey half of you would be going home before the start....a cat came by our condo with out of date registration....first thing I noticed..

    Everglades Challenge 2020

    I hope this guys family takes this up with with a lawyer.....no current registration on boats.....they shouldn't be on the water...period...and the race organizers have responsibility to some degree.....I think this is a great event and really look forward to seeing the boats come by in Bonita Beach....one suggestion ....why don't you participants do some serious self policing and get together with the event owners and make sure the inspections are done properly and spend some serious time on safety to try an avoid things like this....I've been around enough races to know when people get in a boat they sometimes leave common sense on shore.....I hope this event stays around but I think the ownership needs to be held accountable ....
