Uh oh, I think a there's been an accident out in old Boats' shop..... Sounds like a board must have fallen and hit him on the head. Guess I should call the Seabeck fire Dept. & have em send out an ambulance.

Could it be he fell off his ladder when performing his lightkeeping duties?

From what Boats wrote I visualize a retired boatswain mate instructing a truck driver how to secure the load on a flatbed, and to which the driver responds, "I don't know what he's saying but it sure do sound important."

Was going to take you two as crew, =)) but I can see you know nothing about cargo booms. You two stay on the dock and see if any others can rig for cargo. There must be a few a ABs out there. >:/ "Boats"

"Wal-Mart freight is it now. OK.. Most of that junk comes by ship I have you know, The ships now put all that junk in cans and loading is made easy now. But the good stuff that came from Japan when I started sailing was on the old stick ships and you had to rig the booms and know what the hell you were doing. You pond cutters sailors where lucky, you just had to be 6 foot in order to ride one of them things. If it sunk you could walk back to the beach. :roll: Obxlhs, No I have no shore line but I have 2 inch water line, try to knot that up =)) Ross, don't take it apart.The best way to fix a computer is open the window,"FOUR'. Al, take up sawing. It will cost you less money. Or you too can open a window. Where did I put my coffee mug, Honey..... bring in 40 lbs of steam, my coffee got cold iron in the refer. =)) You guys :-j :Boats"

Missing the ocean explains it all. I was beginning to think someone tied knots in your lubber's line. :)
