Thanks for following.

It's getting there. I hope to get some work done this weekend. We had some other work planned, but it is looking like that may be falling through, so hopefully, I can work on this project.

Should be able to post some pics.


If you want to do something, you will find a way.
If you don't, you will find an excuse.

Maybe you could get fancy and do a fade in sunrise or sunset colors. That would get folks' attention...

We had a spinnaker in sky blue, yellow, orange, red, and dark blue made up for our sailboat many years ago, before we decided to come ashore with a Class A. Got a lot of attention, and made it easy for folks to link up -- just look for the sunset spinnaker.

Not fully decided yet. I did however, temporarily hang this up a few days ago, just to see how it would look on the back.

Even though I'm not a beach person, I kind of like this on the back. I'm sure there are plenty of other things that would look just as nice back there.

Question for anyone familiar with using scaffolding.

Anybody using a home made version made out of 2 x 4's? I need to get up in the air about 6 - 7 feet, and want a safety railing to make sure I don't fall off. - Yes, call me a wuss.

I want to build 2 of them about 16' long.

Use 6 2X4X12' or 16' treated yellow pine for upright and frame to hold them rigid with cross bracing. Two 2X6X16' with 1/2" plywood decking 16" or 24" width for walk board laid on horizonal bracing to give proper working height.

Pick good grain wood with no major knots. If nailed together can be knocked apart for disassembly or use screws to make easier.

This will result in a walk board made of 2X6 spanning 8' If concerned with load bearing add a third 2X6.

page 666 is this the end of time?


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?
