Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!
Here's my latest cheap trick. New plexi drop boards for my companionway. The before shot shows the old teak ones and yes, there was no top board so I couldn't lock up the boat.
I made the new ones from a piece of 1/2" plexi I've had in storage for about 36 years. The handle was cut from some teak scrap, also on hand, as were the hasp & lock.
$0 out of pocket now but I suppose I paid something originally. Either way, they were as close to free as makes no difference.
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.
