Re: AS-29's current form
- Thank Lewis,
Next time, I will try that. I wondered what those settings were
for. It just means getting a generator out to the side yard. With
hurricane season coming up, it gives me an excuse to buy one.
Hmmm, what should I break to get an excuse to fix with the welder?

Great point Jeff and one worth seriously exploring by anyone
contemplating a steel boat.My boat yard neighbour,who is building a
Roberts 40, regularly makes so much noise, either hammering or
grinding his welds, that I can hardly hear myself think(not that
there is all that much going on up in my attic)but it is I who must
wear ear plugs! Too bad there was not a way to build it so that it
could be tuned,like a steel drum,all fired up for some Calypso
music :-)Fortunately,he mostly works on Fridays and Saturdays but he
tells me he has a few weeks vacation coming up in the middle of
About the only way a person could pull off this sort of ear-drum
shattering racket in their"backyard" would be if they lived in an
area zoned for industrial...heavy industry...manufacturing. I cannot
imagine a regular neighbourhood ever putting up with it for very
long.At least not as long as it takes a part-timer to build a
Peter Lenihan,not yet deaf but a little crazy nontheless,from along
the shores of the St.Lawrence........
