Re: Are you a do-it-yourselfer?

YES .

I have never bought anything new that didnt need something fixed or completely remade to be right ..

There is no right way to do the wrong thing

Built the boat, so yes i do all the work myself

"Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."

Re: Are you a do-it-yourselfer?

I am for sure a diy kind of person.
If after I have made something and it looks wrong there will be a ,MK11

after 3 or more goes I will admit defeat and have to go and buy one. or do without what ever it was i was trying to make.

Re: Are you a do-it-yourselfer?

I do just about everything plumbing, electrical, construction, mechanical, etc.

I can sew, but I haven't tried sail making yet. There's still plenty of time though!

I'm Dean, and I have a 22' Westerly Nomad.

Re: Are you a do-it-yourselfer?

Anything I don't do it's just because I haven't got around to learning how....what burns me up is when someone says, in reference to some big woodworking job or rigging or some other such thing, "Your lucky you have the skills"....they are not skills I acquired over a live time as a "professional" but they are all skills I taught myself....people in this culture don't do for them selves any more and end up helpless...in the mercy of a powerful advertising industry that makes people think they have to buy new or have a technician fix it for them.

Re: Are you a do-it-yourselfer?

A friend of mine owns a canvas shop here in Port Townsend....the Yukon is a bit far for me to travel to have canvas work done...I am moving even further away shortly.

Re: Are you a do-it-yourselfer?

I'm doing it all. Change my oil, replace my teak decks w/ nonskid, engine repairs, sail my boat, drink my beer, cruise my boat. How can you be a sailor and not be at least a little DIY?

Invest in experiences, not things.
