Re: Beach Cats in Rehab!

Thanks H. You're absolutely right about the pay to infinity issue. I'll soon be paying for a trapeze set-up etc. It will never end. There's actually a H16 on CL in our area for $950 (with trapeze, nice trailer, etc.). In retrospect...oof. BUT you dance with who ya brung. We'll have a blast.

Thanks for the tips on smoothing and taping stuff. I'll start working on that.

As for the tiller extension connector, I actually am using a smaller piece of conduit than the crossbar. It's drilled so that the bolt on the clamp runs through the extender. This gives us the up/down as well as the side-to-side (as opposed to clamping the conduit in the space beneath the bolt). I'm not saying it will work very well - but we'll see.

Anyway, thanks again for the feedback, dude. And keep the tips coming!
