    HELLZ YES.

    in other news, we've not even listed our boat but got a call from someone who is interested in buying it. He's seen it before, too. We're cautiously giddy.

    Thanks. That said, we're not expecting to make money out of this deal, but rather to get out of the dock fees and insurances and whatnot. We dropped thousands to just get the engine running, and I think that was a key point of interest. Come to think of it, you could probably part the engine out for more than we initially spent on the boat itself.

    I estimate that if you have the space, time, and materials, you could refit the boat and sail it on the open waters, easy. Or sell it for some decent coin.

    This goes without saying. I mean, it's a boat for gods' sake.

    thanks :) Best guess its 1095, though its old-old steel, and it works harder than 51N20. Not the best thing to make a large piece out of (that started out as 3/4" round stock) when you've not done forgework in 3 months. Hand/arm is still killing me.

    Dude, next time you do that if you're sweating it, mail it to me. I have a cobbler who can fix damn near anything (did a pair of high tan riding boots for the missus that were covered in gashes and gouges, and you can't spot shit) for 18 bucks. Been going to him since I was 15.

    So the great cheese went down today... sort of. read on if you're not easily bored.



    After we had marshaled the troops and drove 1.25 hours up to this place, we found out the hours of operation we'd seen on their convoluted ass website were for the shop in brooklyn, not the one at the farm, which is closed tuesday. Things took a bit of a strange turn, involving us going to all the other farms in the area to find goat cheese, and finally finding some (mediocre) goat cheese in small quantity. We then proceeded, heedless of weather, to go on a three mile hike in the rain, which mercifully stopped when we had the picnic. Beer, cheese, bread, wine, hummus apples and grapes! I was incredibly happy and we all had fun, especially when I fell off the side of the outcrop and rolled down a small pile of boulders.

    Pictures of random shit from the day:

    [​IMG]
    Rambouillet sheep. Tasty cheese. Lady told me put the fork down when I tried to find out if the meat was any good.
    [​IMG]
    Llama and Alpaca. I'm pretty sure the brown ones are the alpaca. The white one tried to eat my camera shortly after this was taken.
    [​IMG]
    This is a horse. Its actually pretty huge, but I suck at cameras. It is as tall at the shoulder as my friend Stefan (approx 6 foot). He tried to pet it and got zapped by the electric fence.
    [​IMG]
    This is a cow. I gather they are usually larger. It looked tasty but Grace yelled at me for trying to eat it.
    [​IMG]
    These are goats. They wanted to eat my fingers. They are assholes.
    [​IMG]
    This is the waterfall next to where we ate lunch. It is about 30 feet tall.
    [​IMG]
    Grace and Stefan eating lunch. Grace is flipping me off for taking her picture after a 3 mile hike in the rain. Also, that is what I fell off of.

    [​IMG]
    This is our lunch. It was tasty, but there was no goat meat.

    Stefan and myself enjoying a cigarette and a beer after lunch.

    damn that IS tough and brittle steel! I work with low carbons (1015, 1018, 1020, 1035, 1040) and they're hell to shape let alone forge into a blade. mad props to you.
