  1. Was that a reference to 'Sometimes a Great Notion'?

    Awesome, too bad nobody caught on.

    The Discarded- Rescuing a Tartan 33

    This is probably waay too late, but tung oil is an awesome finish. Hand rub that shit in. My dining room table has it and so does all the joinery I've redone in by boat's interior. It looks great and you can rub out and re apply anything. Not sure about stuff that's being walked on but i'm sure it holds up.

    Foam backed vinyl liner

    Crash and Sloop are both right. If you go the spray contact route, clean the deckhead as best you can, then read the label on all the cans. 3M makes a few types and more than one might eat the foam as fast as you can spray it on.

    If you have an arborist supply store in your area, check it out. The one I know of in the lower mainland has tons of options that you can try out on a large scaffold/monkeybar setup in the back. Best part is it's run by two attractive women who have used all this stuff in the field and really know their shit. Hell, one of them even offered to go up my mast for me.

    Bronze Nuts?

    Too much loctite with a torque wrench could cause over tightening as the loctite will act as a lubricant. You risk really cranking it down before getting that 'click'.

    A fairway buoy can also have the flash characteristic MoA (dot dash).

    The Discarded- Rescuing a Tartan 33

    I'm still trying to figure out why the sole needs to be screwed down and have latches... Maybe I missed something but the screws seem unnecessary.

    The Discarded- Rescuing a Tartan 33

    If it's only one or two finger pulls, I would just free hand it close with a router or laminate trimmer, then finish off with a chisel. Or a sharp utility knife and straight edge if you can get it super close. Marking it out on green painter's tape is helpful too.

    The Discarded- Rescuing a Tartan 33

    Each insert should be good for two widths of cuts...just spin it around and cut another slot. I have seen shop made inserts with #6 1/2" screws in the corners, (or wherever it's supported), to use as 'levellers' if the material used is a bit too thin and doesn't come flush with the saw bed. ie: 1/2" baltic birch plywood.

    Motorcycle Threads

    Not the best pics I know.....1989 BMW R100GS. My only vehicle for 11 years. Year round with a handful of snow days in Vancouver. Without fail, every time i approached it from the rear right side while she was on her side stand I fell in love all over again. Eats up logging roads and power lines, and more than a few +1200 km highway days. Very easy to work on too.

    Oven cleaner works great for gummed up sawblades.

    How low can you go? Polyester

    I was replacing some rotten deck core from the interior of the boat. Used it to bed the new core and stick the old skin back on. Worked fine in this application. Might not be the best for many other projects though.

    I've done similar work using System Three's Cold Cure epoxy. No heaters or lamps. All good.
