TFH!

I was out of cheese and ham. This meant a grocery trip and then of course, visit the American Legion. Cuddily said she would be there after baking fresh fish that she got from her neighbor fisherman.

Raindrops and Rainbows

You can take the Mediterranean diet too far, especially with the wine consumption. The noodles are OK if you are burning up the calories, but otherwise they will put on the pounds. So you are left with antipasto, not much else, salad? Chicken Parm? Yes, the chicken parm is probably in itself pretty [...]

Prejudicial Treatment

The excitement of a new baby in the family had me receiving phone calls from all over. The common denominator is that we talked about the weather and food. That makes me hungry and start planning to cook. Cuddily suggested we go to Sysco in Pocomoke to see what wine selection they had there and also [...]

Cap'n Granpa

The Memorial Day weekend was coming up and it is a big deal in Crisfield as well as most of the rest of the Chesapeake. It is the traditional beginning of the summer season. All the boats are launched or commissioned, lots of activity in the marina, motors started up for the first time in a long time, [...]

Cap'n Overboard

The awful jobs get done last. The Atomic Four was waiting for me to pull off the cylinder head, but there was an emergency job, sort of, the mainsail cover was torn and exposing the sail to U/V, very bad.

The Dinette Table

12 March 2012 | Bodkin Inlet/Chesapeake Bay

The new laminate had a week to 10 days lead time, so other work was on the agenda. The dinette table will be converted to a drop leaf design in which the drop leaves don't drop, they fold over on top of the table. This produces a narrower table with more room to climb into the dinette. The table originally had fiddles all the way around, now we will have to add fiddles to the bottom so that when the leaves are flipped up, they have fiddles.

The picture is of the table, work in progress. The fiddles were made just like those in the galley. The problem was that the bottom edge of the fiddles should have been square and then the laminate could go right to the edge. The fiddles are upside down when the table is open, and the idea was to have the laminate go right to the edge. Instead I routed the edge just like the galley fiddles and now there will be a rolled edge at the seam in the table. You can see all this in the picture. If the edges of the seams were square, the laminate could go right to the edge, now it will end at the rolled edge of the fiddles. You can see the original fiddles of the table top, the new fiddles are upside down and when the leaves are flipped up, the new fiddles will be on top.

I brought one box of oak flooring down to the boat and searched around for stainless air nails. It took over an hour to find them and the little box of nails was almost empty. What a disappointment. I ordered another thousand to do the sole. I figured we could do the sole before the laminate arrives. The delays will probably give me some time off of the project. In retrospect this has been on going since December, but will probably be finished in April. Longer than expected, but a big step to completing all of the interior. A little bit of work in the starboard bunk, some trim in the port bunk, completing the pilothouse with SSB radio, and that will just about finish the major projects. Oh, and the bimini with solar panels.
