US -> Metric evangelicals are alleged to be around the midpoint:
...though as someone who lived through the Editor Wars these debates all seems pretty amicable to me.
Some tubing chafed trough and caused a leak in the aft cabin at the beginning of his trip downriver already.I'm going with red arrow one to chafe through first.

I was thinking we needed a betting pool for "first capsize". But then there could be "sinking", "severe grounding with damage", "big wave causes entire pilothouse to short out", "utility pole masts fail" etc. etc. Too many choices.
It's a 'Gnats pube' here..Colloquially here, A “Bees dick” or a “Mozzie’s ballhair” are the professionally utilised terminologies to describe the finest of measurements.
Well I think that's the most put together part of the boat. Actual safety wire.Am I correct in assuming that if he could fit the shackle through the chain it's undersized?
The cognitive-nearly-complete-disconnect will only grow as he disregards basic respiratory precautions when working with two part coatings, particularly inside the boat! Didn't his mama teach him abou.....oh I forgot....he was not raised by a mother who was also a woman.How much slower than "virtually stopped" can you be?

The camera never stays on the chain long enough but it looks like it's about 3-5 ft/min (a windlass should be about 30-60 ft/min)
Wobbles are fine with directly coupled motors according to Doug.
But everybody says it's a problem. (they are right, something would eventually break)

But he can't bring himself to admit that, so explains why he added a chain coupler (a flexible coupling element) is because "he was tired of people complaining"

The cognitive dissonance is strong with this one.
Funnily enough even though we are metric here, 100 x 50 is often referred to as 4 x 2.It's even worse that than - I sometimes hear people of the British species refer to two by fours as "four by twos" which means that they have some magic where by depth is halved but width is doubled. I can't pretend to understand it and it's a miracle the Spitfire turned out as beautifully as it did.
that's not fair. Lots of people made a living in a cube farm and then could pull off home maintainence and renos. Doug's just a fucking idiot.Spend your life as a cubicle warrior....

How about the ends of those pipe clamps hanging out there waiting for a head to impale.View attachment 581310
Are these metric or imperial wire nuts?
I had never seen wire nuts in my life until I moved to the USA...Are these metric or imperial wire nuts?
Wait until you see the knees above the bunks in the forward cabin.How about the ends of those pipe clamps hanging out there waiting for a head to impale.
They are fine so long as you've got single conductor wire and you put them on and leave them in place for the next 8 decades or so.I had never seen wire nuts in my life until I moved to the USA...
