    Any uniform will do. It’s a reflection of commitment

    Me too. But, in other news, I was with my Dad for 2 national championship victories out of 24 attempts constantly wearing team shirts. Whether I liked looking like my Dad and the other older guys or not, showing up for the game in uniform had an impact on the other guys. Amusement at first and astonishment later when they realized that we practiced as a team, dressed as a team and defeated the one design competition by minutes as a team. I really hated it, but it worked. Gotta go dust off the big pickle dishes...

    Especially as brittle blue, green and red That bronze has become over the last 90 years. Good for scrap, just like the he lead. That’s good lead with antimony

    Try tannerite. It works wonders on pig carcasses

    Looks like you could kick it a few times and get a handful of old screws.

    It’s a fun way to spend a couple hundred hours in the off season before painting the decks and topsides

    Hmmm. The St.Lawrence thread for qbf and me! Darned water stains! A light swipe with 80 makes it all better, bright and clean

    My spin on varnish removal is to heat the tip of the putty blade up with the gun before I get moving, it slides right along when the heat starts it’s magic. I personally don’t get the varnish to the point it bubbles that way, but to each their own...and I did use 3 gallons of stripper to do some of the work on mine where epoxy had been used as a sealer and where black stains had been left from the previous job. I’m using Awlwood and you can’t use oxalis acid to bleach the wood due to chemical interference. Between this boat and the Curlew restoration I am getting my share of arm exercise!

    Glad to see someone having good enough weather to do proper brightwork. Between the tree pollen and rain, I’m suffering some withdrawal symptoms!
