    Hay I may be deaf but I am certainly not blind - - Who is cute? Oh the little booties you wear, as I was talking about little Dutch Clogs on little Dutch Girls - does that description fit?

    Please donate to the Fanie project and I will forgive you your sins.... my son, or would you prefer 1000 "hail mary's"?



    hehehe all in a good cause and I am doing a night shift - see it is 10:30 pm local time :D:D:D:D:D:D

    Sabotasje is a word derived from the French word Sabot (which is wooden shoe), if I recall correctly...

    The first computers were the large spinning machines (not sure thats the right word there...). They used pressurized air, to lift the thread up/ down, and when the piston hit a closed plate, the thread didn't lift; I/0 operation. These plates were on a band, different patterns, moving, making it possible to make cloth with different patterns.

    A revolution.

    This was a large industry, many employees, mostly women, badly in need for a regular income. They had wooden shoes...
    The system on top of the machine, didn't take a wooden shoe too well, lots of small parts kickin away at full speeddriven by pressurized air...
    Sabot-sabotasje...

    843 hail marys now...

    Hey folks,
    I'm still here, just had to take some time away from all this boat sillyness. The boat is under way, and my old friend is as well. 15 years of friendship down the shitter over a 10 1/2' micro cruiser...:rolleyes:

    Ok, sorry I didn't get that friend thing there, passed me by completely.
    If 6 to 8 plates of ply is what it takes to bust a friendship....? Better sooner than later then maybe? I will check project progress, am a bit curious to how she'll sail, you know.

    Echo that one, if he wants to walk away over a smallish boat let him walk. OK we can all disagee at times but hell to actually walk...............he may be back but well would you drink with him? What you mean, if he's paying?
