    No more generators in California?

    I was trying to avoid going *there* with this topic, but that is another facet of the larger infrastructure issues we've been having here, yes. My partner and I were joking that the real impacts of this won't be felt until the people in cities who push this legislation start having to face HOA...

    No more generators in California?

    CA has been after this for a while, its frankly disappointingly shortsighted, especially on the generator and chainsaw clauses and will hurt small business and rural landowners the most. I suspect this will gut most small landscaping firms throughout the state, as only the larger, corporate...

    What Did You Do With Your Rig Today?

    Its not that tough to do, really. The bigger thing that the job a HUGE pain was not having the right bearing presses, race presses, seal tools, bearing pullers, etc. The measurements are trivial to do, reading the gear mesh pattern and trying to figure out what to do with it was a challenge...

    Weight is a huge factor IMO. Some of the folks I do fitness paddling stuff with out here have some OC1's and surfskis that all come in at like 20lbs or something silly for a 18' boat, but that weight is a BIG deal when it comes to ease of putting them in the water and portaging. After this one...

    Its about 32-ish right now, I'm expecting it to end up around 35-38lbs after all the outer fiberglass, epoxy, varnish, etc. Really, as long as it ends up under 40lbs I'll be super happy. It end up a LOT lighter than almost anything else out there for the size, save for super high-end composite...

    Here's how she sits right now... we're currently sanding and getting prepped for fiberglass. Its been a ton of work but so far it's been a really fun build.

    What Did You Do With Your Rig Today?

    When I was tearing the front end apart to do the front LSD and gears this past weekend... Found out I needed front pads as well, but I thought i could stretch it out a couple of days. Turns out I couldn't, LOL. A couple heavy stops in traffic yesterday helped make that super clear, so now I'm...

    What Did You Do With Your Rig Today?

    I installed a new front gear set and true-trac to replace the front gears that went KPOW in my jeep. Holy hell its a lot of work. But got a good pattern n backlash after hours of swearing at it and taking it apart, and putting it back together and taking it apart and putting it back together and...

    So, kind of a late follow up to this but I've been putting together a stitch and glue kayak for the past couple weeks now... I'll grab some photos when I get home, but I've finished the interior fiberglass and I'm getting ready to start on the exterior glassing of it. Its been a SUPER cool...

    2022 Silverado ZR2?

    The lockers on it moves it to the "maybe" list for us. The downside is the stupid spool shocks. Not sure we'd replace them right off the bat, but they're not good enough justify getting another set after they die or start losing performance. What is nice about this vs the Raptor or TRX is that...

    Trouble with my KJ.

    I'd look into replacing the fan coupling with a new unit when you can, the power losses coming from having the fan fully engaged all the time are often quite large. Additionally if the fan is overcooling, it can hide other symptoms that might still be occurring in the system. Oh, i see you got...

    Waterproofing the Plano Sportsman box

    I've been sealing up these plano boxes in the same way for a few years now to keep dust out, it works AWESOME. Glad to see that others have been doing the same thing! :D

    I've ordered fabrics and insulation from a site called "ripstop by the roll" before and they have a HUGE range of high performance fabrics, insulation, notions, etc. Its a great great place to get raw materials from

    Here's a little history on the ocean going canoes and their cultural significance in Hawaii. It also has some cool run downs on the canoes themselves and the history of them, as well as the construction/methods they've used over the years. For yours in particular, the twarts on yours might...
