    Wow That is a lot of guys working on one job site @DirtyWhiteBoy .



    @RonW
    Are all the boats in the background parked (docked) under a bridge?



    @asevereid
    Is there a reason they didn’t stain the T&G before you put it up? Seems like that would have been a lot easier.

    Working on the float house. Had a lot of rot on the floor joists under the from side of the house. What a real pain to change out. Have to keep the floats down and in position while swapping out joists. Got that all finished up and started the framing for the addition.

    I couldn’t imagine working on a moving boat . Great views for job sites .

    It’s different. Hardest part for me is leaving the level in the truck. As nothing is level. Can only try to keep things square and straight. Don’t want to over build anything ether. Adds to much weight then more flotation has to be added.
    The views can be nice at times.

    Do they require you use a certain material so it won’t hurt the water .

    Always willing to learn .

    This is brand new out of the box and looks like someone took the boots to it.

    Honolulu,, Hi.

    There are 570 tradesmen on the site.

    Wow, that is a huge site. When I worked commercial I think the biggest site I was on had around 125 guys.

    Right now if you say you’re a carpenter and join the union you be working in a short time. The union is crying for man power.

    Is that a lack of tradesmen or are you guys in a building boom? Or a little of both? Either way it is good for you.

    We are booming over here right now.

    Would the boom be connected to tourism or it’s a population growth @DirtyWhiteBoy .

    I never dealt with a shipping company due to a damaged item.
    Hopefully its not such a hassle and they replace it fast.

    I grabbed my pole/pruning saw and took the blade off, brought it into the shop and gave it a quick sharpen and video’d it. Then did a bit of pruning. Then drove the tractor around a bit and rolled a bit more lawn to get the lumps out. It does not take much to get me to drive a tractor around.

    Oh, that does not sound good. Have you had issues with Fed-Ex before? Will the vendor pitch in to help?

    I went to my brothers house and installed a new dishwasher for him. Not much after that, just a little running around trying to round up some work.

    Tried out my new setting jig today; changed the blades in my “new” planer. Man, what a difference! Fast, smooth, full 1/8″ cut in hardwood.

    Spent a couple dyas last wek getting the shop back in order after the winter(I never work out there in the winter, just a 150′ extension cord for power and no heat in a tin box isn’t much fun after spending the workweek in the same conditions. Most of the mess was from the puzzles I was planning on making for Christmas back in Nov. I have a fair amount of de-rusting to do as a number of tools got some rust on them laying on the bench(4 planes off the top of my head, as well as the bench vise and drill press upright). I might do an article on it, haven’t decided yet.

    I’ve also got the annual Spring Musical at the HS going on, which I do the lighting for every year.

    This past weekend, I came down with a nasty stomach bug and became extremely dehydrated. I’ve drank more in the last 3 days than I had in the past 2 weeks just to get the headache and dizziness to go away, which didn’t happen until around lunch today. Took yesterday off and went to see the doctor just to make sure it wasn’t a sinus infection or ear infection, as a co-worker went through 2 courses of antibiotics and all kinds of other stuff fighting off an ear infection a couple weeks back.
