Yesterday I kind of took it easy and worked on some basics. One of them was a plastic hanging hook. But when installed it I found the hole was too small on the thing I was hanging. The sharp knife on my Leatherman can cut it, but holding it without getting cut was another matter. Having this machinist's vice on the workbench is wonderful.
Don't know if I have shown the air compressor before? This is inside the engine room, over the air conditioning pump array.
Just what you need when it is time to inflate fenders. This little hose I bought is awesome. 1/4" by 50', Flexzilla brand. Light, small, best air hose I have ever had.
This is a slide out shelf I had designed for a printer (under the TV cabinet). I want to be able to print on board. This is a wireless Canon printer. Got it all set up on the network and can now print from the helm computer and my laptop. Awesome.
When we got to the boat I found a huge mess at one of the outdoor handles. Some bird had landed there and did what birds do (doodoo?). My first thought was "crap, this is going to be like a half hour project by the time I get a hose out, hook it up, clean up, put it away...." and then I remembered my built in hose with high pressure pump! This is under the table in the cockpit.
Flip on the breaker, drag the hose out, rinse, scrub, rinse again and voila, clean boat. Video shows last few feet of retraction.
And, oh yeah, official stickers arrived. We are legal WA boaters now.
