I'll take a look at the seat bases. Heck, I'll take a look at macrame-ing you a duvet cover, or souping up your vacuum cleaner. Send pictures, sketches, CAD files, images, and descriptions.

Since I'm coasting on a "free" membership, I don't have PM privileges. Can't send them. Can't read them. I dunno if the board censors email addresses, but I'll see if it will display it -

and SY, I have a moped you won't insure also. It ran 34 when new. It now runs over 70 with my fat butt on it and gets 100mpg if you keep the front wheel on the ground. It's my contribution to help solve the petroleum dependency of this country. I recommend everybody to get one of these.

Except RAddiction, who is after the record, so he'll post about anything, any time!
It took me 7 years....but I'm with you Chuck! What in the hell happened to you guys last Saturday? We were looking forward to catching up!

Welcome back Mr. Collins!!

I sent you an E-mail.
Give me a call sometime this week, or reply with a contact #.
I already had a local guy bone me on a price for some really simple work here locally - I'd much rather work with someone else.
The macrame thing really isn't our style, but the vacuum cleaner could use some help - the two dogs have a way with destroying the house

Still Here...Good to see you back MC!

Not a big poster, but a lurker. I am living vicariously through the many OSO folks who have bigger and better boats than my little 1987 F223LS...

In 2004, I also went through a D...however, mine was for a different reason...my ex now plays for the 'other' team (or the same team, depending on how you look at it.) I know what you are saying about reconnecting with who you are, and seeing life in a different light. I am truly happier now than I have ever been.

Great to see you back on OSO. Being an engineer myself, I really liked your technical insight on many topics.

-Larry
