  1. I have one. New, unused... Was going to put it on a boat now for sale (life changes...). I think it is the medium model in the range but would have to check and am not in the same time zone as the boom brake at the moment. PM me if anyone is interested...
  2. I could dispute the basic premise of this post and the other comments like it (shall we talk about, say, Chrysler products...), BUT, this is seriously funny. Well done.
  3. Please. The solution is obvious: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pu9TsZQwatw&feature=emb_logo
  4. Trying again here, the photo posted momentarily last time then disappeared. Hopefully, it will stay put this time...
  5. You're all so predictable in your dreams. Dream big:
  6. We can only hope Toasty Wait a sec, I'm going to edit this to add something: Fuck— the guy whose skin is falling off, has a scar that would frighten a hardened criminal, and has consumed copious amounts of “therapeutic” poisons for months says “at least it’s not Covid” and I’m supposed to stay silent? Or just step in front of a speeding bus... "At least it’s not Covid"— I’m going to remember this! (if I live)
  7. Your original failure was due to "crevice corrosion" which happens when SS is in an anaerobic environment-- precisely what glassing in the chainplates creates. I had the same failure on my Soverel... didn't glass in the replacements
  8. IIRC, that was Matt Rutherford's conclusion while underway on his round-the-Americas solo trip-- he threw the fancy ($$$) stuff away and reverted to what commercial fishermen use: rubberized Grundens (and the like)
  9. Didn't he just finish building that? I thought the plan was for that to be his liveaboard...
  10. Just to clarify: I was talking about a PRM gearbox, I do not know of TMC.
  11. OK, its been about a decade so my memory may be off a bit-- I think the Hurth gear I had was the HBW5.... it went out and I contacted THE guy in the Boston area who said he could rebuild it for me but then said "if it was mine, I'd just replace it with a PRM." So, that's what I did. Drop-in replacement except for the shift linkage being on the other side of the case necessitating some cable rerouting. Haven't thought about it since.... (all bets are off if I am remembering which Hurth I had incorrectly....(
  12. Very sad to hear/read this. I remember when he named a calf for Bob Perry's late son. Seemed like a very nice man. RIP.
  13. Since this hasn’t come up, I’ll just put this here. A wonderful example of his voice on this cover of a Jesse Winchester classic: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRqlA9oZsyU
  14. Makes me glad I use diesel (kerosene) in the winter and CNG in the summer...
  15. Sorry I didn’t see this thread earlier.... For chrissakes! Buy a copy of Roger Barnes book! Read it. Look at the designs by John Welsford and Francois Vivier! You’re reinventing the wheel and working from a bad copy to begin with. Seriously, everything you want to do is being done everyday in France and New Zealand....
  16. What about the River of Grass design-- build it yourself and save all that transatlantic shipping stuff. From Bedard design in Florida. Beachable:
  17. This is what I remember from the times I played against them on their home pitch-- kegs lined up on the sidelines...
  18. It’s all very nice (understatement!), but does it have CNG?
  19. You have distilled the argument for switching to kerosene on a Dickinson... (my Dickinson Bristol needed the frequent cleanings you mention but with kerosene, even 24/7 operation for 4 months (winter liveaboard) required only one cleaning at the beginning of the heating season).
  20. I don't know where "here" is, but I'd sell it here (RI) for about 2/3 of that price. Yeah, I wish(ed) it had a manual but you go with what you find sometimes and its been such a great truck that I forgot about that wish.
  21. FWIW, I have a 2001 Frontier, regular cab, 4 cyl, auto trans, manual windows, with 50,000 original miles that is for sale... Love the truck but life changes dictate sale.
  22. Pool noodles degrade pretty quickly from UV exposure (ask me how I know). I wrap them with the outer core of recycled fire hose (that also degrades but I get several years of service before replacing the whole combination). The flotation is a benefit to be sure but the biggest benefit is as a bumper when you don't kiss the mothership just right on your approach when loaded with groceries, kids, dogs, booze, ice, etc.
