It does look like all the SN hosted attachments have lost the thumbnails and the remaining links don't work. Some major 'work' was done to the site Thurs AM, this issue seems on the heels of that.

We notified admin yesterday, hopefully it's being looked at. Will follow up again.

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

Parts bins, tool drawers, tape storage, hardware storage. These little snap closed flat clear plastic tubs have become very useful to me. From displaying small tools in an easily accessed "drawer" to containing the parts when I am rebuilding a carb to storing butyl tape flat and clean to providing me with convenient collections of abrasives and /or an epoxy reppair kit. AND THEY STACK! Thank you Sara Lee sugar ham and turkey ham.

Thumbs attempted again. Got this.

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

I fixed a Volvo Penta outdrive for a guy in a liveaboard for his runabout and he had a 6 hp Evinrude that fell of the back of his boat a while back and he was going to chuck it, so I told him to throw it in my direction. Stripped it down and cleaned it up, put a new impeller in it while I was at it and it now powers my 15 foot KABOAT and the thing goes like a bat out of hell for a little motor like that. So I thought that the 4 hp compact Evinrude that I had as a loan from another person I did a couple of favors for can now go back to its owner. He told me to just keep it as he has no use or space for it. The compact is one of the rare old ones that fold up like a bike and stow real easy. Both of them are old and light 2 strokes. Nice to have a spare.
Total investment to get them both running..17.55 $ and some elbow grease.

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

No-drill, easy-to-install sheet keepers: 3M Command hooks. Wipe the gelcoat in the area of interest with either acetone or denatured alcohol and install the hook as per instructions. Mine have held out for a year or so. The stretchy adhesive part does get brittle. Hold power doesn't seem to change but removal gets somewhat more difficult. Pry the receptacle part off gently and then remove the adhesive bits, wipe with acetone/alcohol, reinstall

These "cord keepers" are recent from 3M and I've changed out several hooks for these (hence the reinstallation information). The cord keepers are lower profile.

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

I sailed a charter boat in the BVI that had something very similar to those for keeping the cockpit cushions in place.

They were shin hunters of the first order - I had scabs on mine for more than a week after we got home.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

They're also dyneema cored Warpspeed. Greatest thing since sliced bread, next to the textile constrictor clutch. But neither Warpspeed nor the constrictor clutch are anything near 'low buck.'
