I haven't been in this thread for a bit.... of course she'd be welcome. We have plenty of spring work. Just ask my wife. ha ha ha!

Seriously, if you are down in this area, you are welcome to swing by. Also, if I'm in your area, I'd like to go to St Catherine's. Haven't been there since I was a young boy of 18 looking to have a few drinks.

Thanks! I'll keep that in mind. It's been tough for us to plan anything with my crazy schedule this year. Friends of ours from the marina have offered to take me out, but they were on the hard most of the season doing maintenance and they finally got their boat in the water just as I was getting ready to leave for Manila.

If the opportunity presents itself we would be happy to stop by...but...ummm...where exactly is "this way"? We will also gladly show you around our neck of the woods any time! St Catherines is a 4-5 hour drive from here, but a lovely area in the summer time, due mostly to it's proximity to Niagara Falls.

Lori

While I have not been perfect this year I would think Santa will still be good to me.... I would like the use of a professional rigger this spring, a couple of days should do it. And I would also like a 2nd anchor with 400 feet of nylon and 100 feet of chain.

And for my stocking I would like a new digital multi-meter and and if you could stuff it all in all new foam for all of my cushions.

That will do it - Thanks Santa

Might I recommend:

”The Rigger's Apprentice” ~ by Brion Toss
(ISBN: 087742165X)

"The Complete Rigger's Apprentice: Tools and Techniques for Modern and Traditional Rigging” ~ by Brion Toss, with Des Pawson & Larry Pardey
(ISBN: 0070648409)

And his rigging forum at:

Gord,

My real issue is a small crack in the mast head where a tang joins the actual masthead. I need a rigger to decide whether it can be repaired or do I need to replace? However, I will let my kids know that the books you mentioned would be nice for my stocking. It is one of many areas I need to further educate myself.

I need to add someting to my list - some kind of downwind sailing setup and the rig to go along with it. Also, Lori, our neck of the woods is actually the urban jungle this winter, but in the summer it will be Maine, USA.

::grumbles::

A cordless soldering iron as the sign on the dock saying "Electricity is out. Repairs will be completed in 1-2 weeks" is a month old.

And a heater which doesn't rely on electricity.

Ouch. That's a tough situation. May I suggest the Little Cod wood stove?

How cold is it up in BC right now?

Terrible, horrible weather. Stay away.

Okay, maybe not so bad... 11°C (52°F), a bit of rain and a hatfull of wind earlier. At least, that's what it is here on Point Grey, in Vancouver. But it's kinda chilly when fishing wires through really stupid places... I've decided I really really hate molded liners. <wishes for a few thou$and$ to spend on having a beautiful wood ceiling installed, with nice bronze screws to make it easy to get behind it wherever needed>
