Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Haa, you don't know comfort AND class until you find your daughter looking for the golden rivet in the back of my '46 Buick Roadmaster convert. Now there's some pros and cons of real steel.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Jon:
I have one of those drive in stories. I have another one where we were pulled over by a cop who insisted on seeing in the trunk. Mouse was in the trunk. His real name was Clarence but we all called him Mouse. He looked like a mouse and he was in the trunk.

I opened the trunk lid. Mouse looked up at the cop, Tex was the cop's name. We all knew him and he knew all of us. It was a small town. Mouse looked up at Tex and said, "Hello ossifer."

True story. This was in the days when the cop would give you a stern lecture and then send you home. And you know what? We respected Tex.

I'd just like to smell my old Olds again.

Now I am remembering Mouse stories. There was this time,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Sure Floyd. I could climb back there by myself and loft a boat.
That's all I'm good for these days.

Naw, don't buy that. lofting a boat, except maybe in your head, would require a very large back seat, unless it was toy sized. With your imagination and engineering skills I think you could find other back seat activities to enjoy like maybe, watching the movie........hummm....off topic question: I wonder if anyone has ever watched a movie from the back seat after puberty in a drive in.?
....been years, is vellum still used for drawings?

Me too! 15 years ago I bought what should have been a years worth of 1000H Vellum, Mylar, blueline paper, ammonia, leads and plastic lead for a three man office. Then I bought a computer drafting program and so I still have most of that Mylar and lead aging in the store room.

Oh well time goes on.

It was a VERY happy day the day our ammonia copier went out the door, never to be smelt again. Still have some UV-sensitive paper around here somewhere.. but I don't think I'll ever forget that experience.
