Odell has broke my stuff expensive like every  time I go there.  Its on the ban list.  Now since Im kinda boat less Im at the mercy of those that will put up with my company.  As it was I brought back  75 kokes.  I still want to get in a good jigging bite there.   Crescent  is good for about 20 minutes and your limited some days.
   Id rather have halibut!!!

Keeping up with the building upgrades and repairs is still delaying my boat building progress.  Ive enough momentum to continue with other projects on my outbuildings.  My shop has needed some lovin so I have been trying to wrap that up as well.  These upgrades include new roof, enclosed soffit,  new siding, and a minor adjustment to a saggy overhead door header, and a office-ish room inside the shop.  Im convinced this will be the last of it for this season.  With the lights in the boat barn all I have left is to add in the power outlets, work benches,  cabinets/shelving type stuff.  Kinda wa to wait on that as I e yet to visualize a boat in there.

... Probably the first boat of a few, so may as well get that shop straightened out!

I did finally get a concrete contractor to look at my boat barn.  We agreed on a price and momma gets a new 4 wide  sidewalk from the drive to the front porch out of the deal. He will bring in a bobcat and do some dirt work too.  That should give me a couple more inches of overhead door clearance!   Now I just gotta get him back to get going on it!   Progress!

Yay!  Progress!  Good idea to gain a couple of inches with some dirt work ... the more room the better.  :D

Everything is formed up and all the rebar tied and ready for a pour.  2 hours on a bobcat and my concrete  contractor has gained me 4 inches of headroom.  Final  number is 9-7 door opening. That almost seems tall enough for the boat on a trailer.  I may need to rethink my build plan a bit and consider that I may be able to get the whole rig back in there trailered.  I have been looking at a battery powered trailer mover that may work well in my situation.

You need to post before and after pix ... you've done a tremendous job on your shop!

Probably too late now, but a steel beam header over the garage door will gain you a few inches versus using a standard wood-beam (glu-lams or LVL) header.

You've done an outstanding job ... sorry about the shop budget!  I know how that goes.  My shop in Alaska started out as a "think garden shed ... but bigger with more square footage" and turned into a $60k 2-floor project!  I could've built TWO boats for the price of the ONE shop...

Im having trouble posting pics.  Using attachments and other options, choose attachment from my camera roll and try to post.  It wont allow that type of file.  Its just a cell phone pic.  What am I doing wrong?

Good question!  Can you email me an example image file?  Send to brian dot dixon AT glacierboats dot com

It could be a file type issue, a file size issue, dimensions issue ... I'll know more when I get an example file that refuses to work.  We'll fix it one way or another ... people want to see your pix!
