if i may commit the error of being serious,,,, (yeah I know its frowned upon). How long can HR stay where he is? I guess as a vessel he can anchor in most places for awhile. That headroom does look over 8ft .... (f me),,, why? whats wrong with 6ft 6 headroom, If he had read one book on boat design? if he had skills? if he was prepared to listen? if he had done any research,,,, he has now a large houseboat,, that will not be super durable,,,,, at least he could have saved a bit and not installed the rig... if he had bought a sound second hand boat,,,,,if he had read one book on houseboat design... if ,,, if,,if this,,, if that... Well at least the topsides are sloped,, that may reduce forces whilst at anchor,,, but does it really matter on a swinging mooring?

this thread is going nowhere isnt it? HR will potter about where he is,,, for a year or 2 or 3,,, eventually rot will seep in and the boat will be abandonded

Good grief, Peter! Don't you know that plywood sheets are 4ft by 8ft here in the states? Whatever else kinda headroom was he gonna have when the plywood sheets already done come that size?

Jeezus! You crazy foreigners must be on the metric system or some shit like that.

no metric plywood comes in sheets of 1219mmx2438mm so it still works fine for 8ft headroom

There has been no rain at all this month there and none predicted. No rain means no wind. January and February are the rainiest months for the Bay. Instead it has been clear and mild with near record highs just about every day.

There is a high surf warning with breakers up to 20'! This won't affect the FH. Mavericks should be pumping.

Having 0" of rain in January might be an all time record in itself.

Ok so I'm interested in this ignore button. Where do I find it? After seeing one person ruin such a great SA thread I'd like to place it on ignore myself.
Never mind. I found it. Instant relief!
There should be a rule that you can't use the Ignore function until you have 100 posts under your belt, at least one of which contains pictures of tits.

Tits are cavity-nesting birds, typically using trees. Good enough? I'll start working on my post count.
I see your Tits and raise.
