      Thank you Mike

      Nothing from Jeremmy, Last time he was in the hospital the only way he had to contact me was from a passing visitor's laptop.

      Hi Pat ,
                    Not sure it is insanity . When I was 9 in 1951 my farther took a teaching job in Oxford, because of
      the housing shortage he bought a old landing craft that had been converted to a house boat. We moored on
      the Thames near to a boat yard that ran steamers on the river. I made friends with the blacksmith named George,
      who made me a metal catapult which got both him and I in trouble with my mother. The yard got a contract making
      steel boats that sold in Canada like hot cakes. They were copies of the traditional canoe made in sheet steel. I bet
      who ever suggested this was thought a bit odd at the time.
               I have sent emails to a section of people that might be of assistance ,the include a couple of Thai boat builders
       plus a couple in USA  and one to Honda marine will let you know any results.
              I hope you have received good news on Jeremmy well being .

      Thanks Harold
      Heard from him twice in the last 3 weeks, usually email back and forth several times a day. Having typhoid AND malaria in a rural Kenyan hospital is very scary stuff. This is tearing me up because he is SO smart and such a good guy.

      But...at my age I cannot afford to have all my eggs in one basket so I have multiple fallbacks starting up.
      Hi Pat ,
      The boat power thing smells of my usual insanity but just think of the possible implications. Only 6% of the boats on lake Victoria are powered yet it is a major source of protein for 30 million people. Long tail boats have not made the transition from Asia, yet with a lathe, welder (one in town) and a way to cast propellers, everything else needed to build them are available there.

      5/8" (about) shaft
      1" water pipe
      pillow blocks or flange bearings (Jeremmy already uses them for grinders, wood lathe and sander)
