    DC Designs

    BE CAREFUL... I almost turned a laser into a beachball by pressurizing it using a vacuum cleaner. I was totally unprepared for how destructive that little test was. l I hope to make it, but it won't be easy. Some parts have to be finished before I hit the road - like the roof rack, rudder cassette and tiller extension. Meanwhile, another batch of questions: 1. If anyone with a stock Kinder jib could measure the batten lengths, that would be really helpful. Somehow I have misplaced my jib battens, but not my main battens. 2. I have not one, but two, 1/4" drain holes. Easy to install, cheap and I have 100 spare plugs for $5. I tried to leak check my hull yesterday using vacuum pressure and sudsy water. I thought I was in my element from lots of experience finding leaks in bike tires. Anyway, the only leak I found was the unpressurized drain hole. It produced a solid bubble but it is a gaping hole. Has anyone else with small drain holes successfully leak checked? 3. Any tips for rolltipping a garage paint job? I have all the Awlgrip products and the Awlgrip directions. 4. Should I use foam non-skid on the outside of the gunwhales or salt in the paint? I have foam, and lots of it, on the dance floor. Padding seems like a good idea. 5. Do I put limber holes in my carriage rails? 6. I broke a tap after the deck went on and the tip rattles around in the hull. I guess I need to drill a hole and pull it out with a magnet on a string. Any better ideas? Thanks

    Bacon Anarchy

    Out to dinner at a haute cuisine french restaurant. First time there. Wife had bacon wrapped venison. Bacon was 'de-smoked' so as not to over power the venison. Subtle, yummy.

    Couple Cruise for 1000 Days

    as it happens, I have just finished reading a very well written and entertaining book (Terra Incognita, Sara Wheeler) about her experience as the first (sanctioned?) artist to visit Antarctica (I think that prior to this any artist was a scientist first, artist second, free-loading hippies dont count) I'd recommend this book for any of you who fancy some writing that is several cuts above what you are reading here - and no less entertaining.
