Now for the bad news for those coming from Detroit and points north on South bound I-75. You can pick which you think will be best for you. As the detours ends at the exit for one road to Wyandotte

welding an outboard skeg. http://blog.bug-o.com/index.php/en/weekendwarrior/welding-an-outboard-skeg http://blog.bug-o.com/index.php/en/weekendwarrior/welding-an-outboard-skeg It was prepared properly, and when i welded it i seen the penetration.
After mucking around day welding and then sanding . It still cracked.
I ended up knocking off the skeg again to find that there was so much crap that had come out of the parent
Material it is not funny!
To buy an outboard is expensive so you think that the manufacturer would use clean aluminium, but nope.
They put in all types of crap.
Stuff me!!!]]>

Last week versus this week http://blog.bug-o.com/index.php/en/weekendwarrior/last-week-versus-this-week http://blog.bug-o.com/index.php/en/weekendwarrior/last-week-versus-this-week
Stopped in the drive-thru for lunch and the woman in the car before me payed for my lunch!

Got home and found a check in the mail box for my latest commission!

Found a letter in the mailbox from the IRS saying we over-payed and were getting a nice refund!

This week,,,,,,, "IT" got elected, my motorcycle battery is dead and won't take a charge, and today we picked up 2 large steel sculptures from the gallery for the show this weekend and both of them were broken by the time we got home!

Didn't pack them right for the ride across the valley and have to reweld one and repowder coat the other!

Off to pout in the corner and drown my sorrows in an adult beverage or 5...

Here's hoping for a better day tomorrow!]]>

That being said he sometimes has trouble with the English language.

In the past he has come to me with questions like,,,

"What does douche bag mean?"

He said he and his wife heard this in a movie and didn't understand.

Today he came to me and asked,,,,,

"What is a rim job?"

He said his granddaughter said this after coming home from school!

After I picked my jaw up off the concrete I explained what that was...

He turned 3 different shades of red and laughed a little...

And people wonder why I drink!]]>

I have had 10 years to cram stuff in there..

Now I have to clean it out in 2 days...

Oh God........

Will probably be shut down because of the mess and clutter that will take over the work area..

Hope he gets done quickly....]]>
