Living Aboard

My right thumb has a metal fragment stuck in it, my right forefinger has a burn from a drill bit, my left forefinger has several slashes, my right lower arm has a nice slice in it, my left shoulder another slice, my legs are covered in bruises.

Living on a boat, you got to love it!!

Re: Living Aboard

We have a saying: "if there is blood the project is getting done." One must be able to achieve the "inverted weasel postion" to work on anything in the boat.

Re: Living Aboard

................and I thought it was a midget with a mirror or a lizard with a ladder, but it's the inverted weasel position! This will help while I'm exchanging my broken fresh water pump for it's replacement. I'll add my trick of laying upon a foam "boogie board". This is the only way I can assume the inverted weasel position!

Re: Living Aboard

Having spent the better part of the day in the inverted weasel position I can only say I am glad all the J-Boxes are installed and that Himself provided all the blood.

Wiring sucks.

Re: Living Aboard

It must be that there is a full moon coming up, but when I hear "inverted weasel position", why does my mind wander towards something that sounds like it might be performed in the bedroom?
