Thanks for the well wishes, I think it might be the first time
Well, that is really nice of them, totally the opposite from my experiences of many years in and outside of San Francisco Bay. My definition of who has the right of way is which vessel is bigger than the other. Some time ago after arguing with my Dad about whether or not to start the motor to avoid a tanker
I pushed him aside and started it. Had it not started immediately My wife and I, my two daughters, and my Dad would have been killed. nice to see that wouldn't happen in your area. Keep them comimg!!

I think it was CnC's failed effort at sarcasm.

I am sure it was. I seriously doubt that any commercial skipper would endanger his vessel and crew to even try to avoid running a small boat down.
For liability purposes he might blow the whistle and try a short burst of reverse just before he runs you down? Chris, keep trolling!!

Nice looking bracket bracket.

Your bracket is the same I have for the kicker on my Tolman Skiff. Over ayear of bouncing around on the road, it finally cracked the fiberglass because of the stress at the bottom of the bracket. Your bracket bracket is not much bigger than the footprint of the bracket. I now use a piece of 3/16 G10 about 1" wider but 2" longer between the bracket and hull to spread the load. You will also need such.

Yup nice bit of TIC welding there. Not often one sees that on a home made bit of kit.
More often then not I tend to look up when seeing "home job welding" and try to find the pidgeon that done it in the spreaders.

I'm impressed. Precious few are willing to come back later and admit that maybe their grand, unconventional plans turned out to be a bit of "insanity." Takes a big man to make that sort of admission and my hat is off to you.

Let's hope that others will read this and realize that sometimes the unconventional is unconventional for a very good reason--because the conventions WORK!
