Gorgeous stuff. Thanks for posting.

If you ever are in New England, do yourself a favor and stop by the Herreshoff Museum in Bristol, RI. If you love woodies, you may think you've died and gone to heaven.

That is one massive vat of molten zinc, with my 300' of 1/2" chain in it!

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

There were dozens of men working in this building. I never saw a single respirator or any form of protection other than gloves and safety glasses. Some of those vats are acid baths. I would rather grind glass naked for the rest of my days than work in this place. I could feel the cancer setting in as soon as I came in the door...

Re: Nauticat 52 Refit

I know what you mean about the fumes: I get about five seconds of breathing time in a galv plant before my airway goes into auto shutdown, and I'm not asthmatic.
