U.S. Unemployment at 16-Year Low, but Economy’s Weak Spots Remain

Thu, 06/08/2017 - 11:11
From the NY Times. No matter if things are getting better, but things are still bad. :duh:

Notice the "hidden unemployment" chart near the bottom. I think that is a first for a liberal rag to acknowledge that! It still doesn't include those that have stopped looking for work I would guess.

Trailer project

Thu, 06/08/2017 - 08:29
Hey guys, I know it's not a v-drive, but it has a prop and a rudder and you guys generally appreciate a bad ass trailer more than my normal jet crowd, so I figured I would post this here. Guy came to us and said he is a doing a full restore on a 1930's chris craft and needed a custom trailer for it. This is what we came up with and I think it came out pretty damn cool, He had some specific needs like the winch up above the deck because these things don't run a bow eye, they are up on the deck. Also needed a set of removable beams that are stored on the trailer that he uses as a spreader bar to hoist the boat in and out of the water. Trailer never touches the water..

The guys that restored this thing are in Fallbrook CA and did an absolutely AMAZING job on this very original Chris Craft. Boat is an absolute work of art....... Attached Thumbnails

To those conservatives who cry Fake News every time something comes from the White House that's bad, maybe you should see this.
It'll burst your fake bubble.
It's from the FOX NEWS NETWORK, so it must be true, even by your standards.

Can a president destroy america?

Tue, 06/06/2017 - 17:29
I hope not, but there is currently a President in office that seems to be doing a good job at trying.

I understand that not everyone likes or benefits from Obamacare, but it is the law of the land.
Donald Trump has made it clear that he intends to destroy the legacy of President Obama and one of those things is our healthcare system. President Trump has said it doesn't work, even though it was, with some flaws. Because the President has been unable to provide a better alternative, he is bound to destroy the what benefit Obamacare provides regardless of the cost to the people.

His plan seems to be working, as one State now has no insurance plan for 10,000 people.
President Trump has thrown up road block after road block for residents and insurance companies that allow Obamacare to continue. The President has said he will cut off subsidies to insurance companies, which is part of the plan. But due to his inability to provide that better idea, insurance companies are saying they can't make plans without knowing what the government is going to require of them. That isn't happening, so the insurance companies are pulling out.

What's shitty about the whole thing is we now have laws on the books that say you must have health insurance, or pay a penalty. We have one place in the United States that has no such plan available, and the individuals are not eligible to purchase it elsewhere(Out of State). Those individuals are, or will be, in violation of the law and subject to a fine through no fault of their own. This came about because we have a President that has set up a situation to deliberately cause the Healthcare Plan to fail. He said he was going to do it, and he did.

What kind of leader do we have that knows there are laws on the books that people must follow, but deliberately makes the effort to ensure those people are unable to follow the law by getting insurance, and will be subject to financial penalties through no fault of their own.

We have such a President leading this chaotic mess, but there are also a bunch of self-serving so-called Conservatives too that are contributing to the destruction of this Country and people lives.

Trump and his family have insurance and security, but for some reason he thinks others don't deserve the same.

Hull core repair/replacement

Sat, 05/13/2017 - 21:54
I have a 17 foot v-drive that has delaminated floors due to leaking fuel tanks. I have used a plunge blade to cut out the passager side of the floor including the glass over the stinger. I was expecting to find the stringer completely rotted out but it is solid. There is some staining but I'm now starting to consider pulling the stringer out, filling the holes, sanding it down a bit after any fuel has evaporated and then put it back in. Or I might just use it as a template. I think it's Redwood, but I don't know my woods very well. My real concern is the core. I cut out a section of the fiberglass floor a few weeks ago and it was wet but it has since dried out. It's not rotted, as I think it was wet from fuel. I took a palm sander to it and it looks pretty good there, but around the stringers it has a bit more of a problem. It's a bit crumbled in places. I think it can be repaired and the stringer rebedded. I haven't seen many talk about repairing or replacing the core. I guess most just cut the boat up. I almost did that but this boat is a quick hull. I drove it this way for two seasons. It handled great and when it gets ontop of the water it really pulls hard. My 428 is a stout block but I've just got truck heads on it and with 12 or 15 gears and what turned out to be a very restricted pick up tube from my fuel tank meaning low fuel pressure problems, it still spun over 5500 rpm. So since no other flat bottoms came up for sale in my area in my price range I'm going to fix this one. I think it was an endurance racer. Isn't that why v-drives have the bracket with the support bearing that the prop shaft runs through? You can see where down pedals and other parts have been removed. Anyways just looking for your thoughs on boats with core problems.

Gear box bracing for Z-Drive (parallel drive)

Sat, 05/13/2017 - 03:38
Hi guys
Im looking for some suggestions on how to go about installing bracing for Z-drive (parallel drive) box
The boat has 260x60mm stringers, and Im using the Z-drive between crash gear box and surface drive to increase the drive height
Ive seen plenty of postings of V-drive where bracing is on one side
Understand my setup is a little different
But thought I would reach out and ask for some suggestions
NB: The attached pictures are of the trial fitting of the surface drive, transom semi-finished
cheers Attached Thumbnails
