    Chick, That looks like a fiberglass Scout from the '80s https://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1986/fairchild-yachts-scout-30-3120284/

    B&B Preps for Florence

    Glad to hear everyone's OK. Hopefully the Bay River is short enough that flooding from upstream should be minimal & storm surge from the east is essentially over and you have seen the worst of the flooding.

    B&B Preps for Florence

    Has anyone heard from Graham or Alan? Google Earth (not too accurate on elevations) shows that the shop is at an elevation of 1 meter. Any word on flooding?

    B&B Preps for Florence

    A buddy of mine who wholesales drugs moved all his stock up to the top shelves for a hurricane. When the water rose, the shelves floated and fell over. Make sure of the stability of your preps. Best of luck to you all but please get out'a Dodge!

    An other OC20 build !!

    It would probably be better if you used a notched 'king plank' or joined the planks at the center-line herringbone fashion to avoid feather edges, also nib the short planks on the inside of the decks into the 'covering boards'

    B&B's first annual "Capsize Camp" July, 20-22

    Were any of the MK3 capsizes with ballast tank empty? Have you tested the fish float at a depth = to length of mast to make sure it won't crush from water pressure in a turtle? (20' water ~= 10 psi!). Good work- excellent info.

    Hope you keep the rake on the after end.
  13. Iirc, they do this on the Pacific (Oregon?) not Carolina. I don't think there's as much of a salmon fishery on the Atlantic side.

    Tiger, In case you haven't seen it, here is an article by Gary Blankenship (Lugnut) about a bimini he built for Oaracle. http://duckworksmagazine.com/06/howto/bimini/

    Rusty Refrig

    I live in Belize in a non-air conditioned house on the seafront. I have a huge problem with rust spots on my refrigerator. I am thinking of spot sanding the exterior, treating the bare metal with Ospho, then coating the whole surface with either polyester or epoxy resin, then spray painting. The Ospho then spray paint does not last well at all. Any ideas?
