strawler

I have put the port and starboard lights on and have had to get more parts and have to spend more time to get all the parts. The photo shows the installation.

drug sub

The windows are in. Looks like one of those drug subs! It wouldn't be hard to make a drug sub from steel and set it up to move automatically to a destination and sink to await being woken up by the owners.  The welds are strong and have good penetration as seen in the below photo.
Then there is the view from the stern and a bow photo.

strawler

Windows marked out ready to cut. I made them small so if they get broken in a heavy sea then there is only a small hole. I am using 6mm lexan for the glass.

just a number......

We gave 500 dollars to the rspca those people who look after the animals and told them it was a one off payment. Our name then goes onto a list and out come the letters begging for money at least a hundred of them.
I decided to ring them to stop the postal service getting all the money we gave them. They answered promptly and it wasn't a machine. The request was made to take us off the list but I needed the number on the letter. I was just a number to them not a name. I was lucky I had the letter and the number was there to give them and I was taken from the list. Now I have to get my number off all the other lists that have been sold to someone else. We thought that it would be nice to give  to the animals.

strawler --- drug sub

More windows go in to stop it looking like a drug boat.

strawler

The shape is looking good it looks like one of those drug subs I see on the net. If it was loaded with two tons of drugs it would sink deep in the water like those subs so I think with out the weight if will be a good sea boat.  I think I have just given a idea to those sub builders and the drug barons, would be nice if they the barons paid me for the idea. I aint into drugs so to be caught on the open sea in this thing I think I might get arrested.

strawler--drug sub


The windows have to be cut in and you can use an angle grinder with one of those thin cutting wheels on it for the straights and a jigsaw for the corners.

strawler




 More work on the shed! If it don't work it will make an expensive shed, it is looking good with the hand rails on the roof and the navigation  lights at the end of the rails. Mounting hand rails you only need an inch of clearance for your fingers to fit behind the rails with comfort. this next photo is looking from the inside of the boat.


This photo above shows the hand rails on the cabin sides.

The final photo shows the general layout of the cabin on the boat.
 Fitting out will commence in the coming days.

strawler --drug sub

Today the cabin roof was welded on lots more to do. The shape of the cabin from the top is airfoil in shape so when it is powering to windward it will generate a small amount of lift.

strawler

More work has taken place and there is a monstrous amount of room in the cabin. Weight is not an issue as the total weight is about 1 hundred kg. maybe it might be stealthy cause of its shape. The photos speak for them selves.

How to make a drug sub

Just started on the conversion of my trailer sailor to a trawler. The photo above shows the start. Flat bar was welded together to make a foundation for the cabin and screwed to the boat.

train bike

My son wanted to have a bike to take on the trains in Sydney. It had to be small and light enough to carry up three flights of stairs. This is what I came up with. The wheels are 16 inch but smaller ones would suffice. The smaller bikes tend to be front end light when you make this conversion and can throw you off the back when you apply pressure of an adult to the pedals. The photo below shows the result.

Sudden infant death syndrome (causes)

Whirlpool have declined to help me and I have decided to keep the washing machine and use it for all future attacks on domestic machines that do not provide for good returns. I would be wrong to palm the stinking thing off on some poor unsuspecting individual. That is why I sleep well at night. This is the type of machine (in the photo above) that causes the problem of unclean bed linen and is the most likely cause of sudden infant death syndrome. Sudden infant death syndrome is most likely an allergy to dirt and dust mites in dirty the bed linen...as the young child's immune system is under developed it has not got the strength to fight  ...even though the parents wash and clean to the best of there ability with there faulty engineered washing machines.
