So, this qualifies as excitement around here nowadays...

Recommended Posts

It was like Christmas in July, I received my Dustbuddie today.

This is the one that jgbrown recommended IN THIS POST. Hopefully by this weekend my wife's arm will feel better so I can get covered in crud for a few hours and not have to drop everything to help her out.

Also, My USCG COD showed up in the mail so the new name is official. I played around on the PC and printed out some letters to get the feel.

Out with the old:

In with the new:

They're printed on plain paper and stuck on with Scotch tape but so far I like it. Comments? I'll have a sign painter do the real thing.

You may notice I've been poking around at the bottom paint looking for trouble. So far so good. But man I need to fix that waterline. Have the old yard bill for that from PO. Whadda ya expect for $1500 bucks?

I like the name and the font looks great on your transom.

It’s been too hot to grind boat bottoms but I’m glad you aren’t finding any problems. What’s a dustbuddie anyway?

Thanks Shoalcove. Though the font size might be a bit large but I like the overall effect.

Hey, on another note, do you ever visit the Cheoy Lee Owners Group on Facebook?

Hi Monkey Butler,

 The Dustbuddie seems a good idea. I might have to look into one but I’m hoping not to do much grinding soon. 

 I haven’t checked out the Facebook group as I’m not a Facebook member and don’t tend to go there. I’ll take a look.

Thanks!

Thanks, the final product will be very similar. Just need to add the hailing port.

Bull, Snaggy, meet Abigail. So named by my son Tyler. He posted this video after this her last Christmas with us. She was 16 years old. Tyler died a little over a year later at age 26.

Tyler had a special affection for Abbey unlike he had for any other creature or human.

And Snags, I thought that's what I said. Or don't you understand fuckin' English? Oh, uh, wait... check that, maybe not so well.

Apologies, I meant "commentaires s'il vous plait. i welle hauve a localle sine artiste preforme thee finale applique de lettres."

That first 'I' in ABIGAIL looks to be about an inch too low. 

Agreed. It was just some temp lettering to see if I liked it. I mean really temp.

Anyone know who we're at war with now?
