    I had nothing to do with that house.

    It seems that in America that many neighborhoods and many small towns have at least one "art house" or "strange house". Right now on cable TV there is a show which features such homes called; "What's up with that house?" (HGTV). Many of these homes have no architect involved and take many years for their owners to build.

    In my own neighborhood there is one house which for religious reasons I'm told has been left to fall into disrepair, no paint, the roof must leak like crazy as you can see large holes in it and even the garage has imploded. Somehow this lowmark on one of the main streets into our neighborhood is what people seem to see and remember the most no matter how nice the other homes are.

    George,

    Those marine helm seats can cost between $2,000 - $3,000; they have a shock absorbing mount with up to 6" of travel, lateral movement, and flip up armreast.

    SafeHaven's designs seem really at home in the heavy stuff. I watched some of those videos on their site. Throw the boat into Force 11 winds, 20' seas before delivery. They must be pretty confident everything will hold together.

    Great site, neat photos and videos. I want one!

    Why not just use a truck seat right out of a truck?

    FYI: Some of the small hovercraft use plastic lawn chairs, and not bolted down. Different use and application need I say.;)

    Well... Ricardo is Italian , cushy, wraping my butt with care, leather... disposable from a black market with price away from the original... you need just to install the spring and hydraulic or whatever u prefer to have it under the chair...

    If u dislike a good chair like that ( from a certified couch potato like me with a remote...) u can get a Sparco brand new for cheaper... in Asia... you have many imitation brand to choose or knit one for your very butt... I mean bottom fat...:D

    Big winds in UK

    A ship carrying new container cranes for the Port of Felixstowe in the UK broke its moorings during a period of 60 knot+ winds and drifted along the pier, taking out 2 existing cranes before running aground at the shore end.

    Poor seamanship at fault? why wasn't there enough wires/ropes/berthing hawsers rigged? I'll leave the rest to the inquiry team but it looks like somebody will have 'egg on his face' (or chop sooey)

    Because no one thought of it? - is that negligence or dumb ignorance, or stupidity? - - excuse, = "temporary insanity" insanely thought it would be OK?
