The cover is falling off and the pages falling out. I guess I need to convert it to 3-ring soon. A great reference, not just for the examples, but for the way of thinking.

You might also like "Keeping a Cruising Boat for Peanuts." I'm not shy--I wrote it. My wife swears spreading money thin is my best skill. It's the only way I get to keep sailing.

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

Might as well resurrect this a bit. Maybe get some new posts here.
For my Mac 22. I needed a mast crutch for transport. Didn't want to buy one so I made one. Mostly from scrap materials I had laying about but maybe cost $20, most of the cost was the paint I used.

Got a few more projects on the way, just waiting on other things to line up.

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

This:
1 Is not a project, although it saves money, time, and aggravation.
2 May well be something all of you have already figured out

But I have old rolls of masking tape (the tan, cheap stuff) that especially when my shop is cold, resist dispensing tape cleanly, w/o shredding and making a mess.

A few seconds in the microwave before use allows the tape to release cleanly from the roll.

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

So the Admiral wanted a small galley for our <86 C-22, a piece of 5/4x6"x6' Sapele, a scrap sink cutout of Corian about 50 bucks total. (the Whale pump faucet and SS sink put it over the $100 limit, but still quite economical, under $180 overall). Room left of sink for an Iwatani butane burner, or cutting board/food prep area. Tilt out drawer front provides access to plenty stowage space for flatware, dishes, utensils, solo cups, koozies, etc.

Water supply is a 5 gal. Walmart collapsible camping bladder in the v-berth plumbed to the faucet ($10 total).

People can say they want freedom, but offer them the keys to what chains them, a map to where they want to go

And they'll turn it down for the cell they know
