UConn Rowing Building a Family
We have to wake up before the Sun comes up most days it takes so much dedication to get up and do what we do but you do it just because we're a team and that's what we all do and it's so much easier when we're doing it together UConn rowing is about passion and dedication you have to push yourself past the point of when your body is aching or when your mind is telling you to stop doing this or why are you doing this no matter what you think you can do.
You can always push past that point you can always keep pushing ourselves to be better team is so important because rowing is such a team driven sport you can't move the boat alone we have to be so in sync and that's so hard to get different bodies and different rowing styles to match up together but I feel like that's where our cooperation really comes into play is because we're so forgiving each other and motivating that we just try to blend as one all the time and I that's one of our best.
DIY Dock Protector
Boating is a huge part of cottage life but there's one thing about boats thats got me stumped What's the point of having a rub rail if the darn thing never touches the dock It's about as useless as having a parachute at a spelling bee Sure boat bumpers do their work, but they wear the side of the boat big time Well today we're going to bridge that gap between boat and dock To illustrate we have a boat.we have a dock and our boats even equipped with a rub rail.
So what's the issue Well, the problem is that the boat rides above the dock most often in order to bridge that gap most of us add bumpers bumpers wear on the haul.so what if we could turn the dock vertical therefore allowing the rub rail to do its job well we could do that simply by adding a couple pieces Every boat and dock is unique For my boat, my dock, I determined thirty two inches was the right height so all we need to do now is mount them the dock.
I'm going to do that with lag bolts and recess the holes because I'm also going to add this dock edge and the head of the bolt would obviously interfere with the face of the dock edge Alright I got my lags I'm just gonna start them.I'm putting two in the bottom because that's where most of the torque is and then once the vertical pieces are mounted this will go overtop and its screwed in okay let's go down to the dock Most boats taper towards the bowel about midship.
So let's put one of our vertical pieces there And.maybe back here Alright so I'm bringing down this so the bottom of my vertical piece is flush to the bottom of my dock So I'm going to hammer this one in to get it started I'll use the ratchet for the bottom ones So next we're going to add this vinyl dock edge to our vertical, to give us even greater protection bigger boats are of course going to require more vertical supports and perhaps be struck back to the dock for increased strength.
But hey, we finally got the rub rail doing what it was designed to do and for us older folks.no I'm not included in that bracket sorry There's a handy grab rail so we can get in and out of the boat now I'm gonna hang onto the boat bumpers because a lot of dock owners aren't as cool as we are! But as far as I'm concerned we solved our problem.For Cottage Life, this is Wayne Lennox reminding you that a little project goes a long way at the cottage!.
Oral History Tutorial George Luzier on the craft of building beautiful wooden boats
Well, let's start over there with the first ones. My name is George B. Luzier. And I was born 61224 in Sarasota, Florida. So I'm a downtoearth Cracker. This was my second boat. My first boat I don't have pictures of right now. I was about 14 and that's built in my mother's garage over on Pomelo Street. And this is Clark's Ark and it was built way back, that was over in the old Rec Hall building. And it's still up in Bradenton and it's still going strong. It's been a very successful boat and everybody.
Loves it. That's a 16foot outboard. We built, I don't know, 5 or 6 of them. My typical day is I get up at six o'clock and get moving, try to get over at the shop about eight. There's always something I can do. Some days, you know, you're building or doing something, you're right in there cuttin', sawin', and goin' at it hammer and tong. Now right here. I don't see my favorite tool but that's a Stihl electric plane. You can see it's had a little hard usage. I've had it, I know, 50 years. It run good, never.
Gave any problem. They never made a better saw than that 14inch Delta. And that saw's, oh, I'm sure it's at least 60 years old. I've had it for 50odd years. I bought it secondhand. But it's just a good, ruggedit's a heavy little mother. And on the bigger boats, see, we'd pick that up and throw it inside the boat, don't have to walk back and forth and save a lot of time. That's a 3115 Singer, and it'll sew most anything you stick under it. But it's full of all sorts of glameration of. whatever. And I've got, you know, most.
Of these tools, I don't want 'em to hang on the wall and show and this and that, they're to be used. Like this little plane here, a lot of things you want to set at a depth or something, on a surface, and this works great. And this old timer. Well, you never got enough clamps. Nah, it's been, ah, it's been interesting to do and I've had a lot of enjoyment out of it. You know, some of the job parts are not that easy, but you know, it don't.
How to build a DOCK BOX
Those of us who spend a lot of time at the dock know how much stuff can accumulate down here over the course of the day you know what I hate picking up after my dock side guests time and time again besides where am I going to put this wet stuff well today we're gonna work on a storage solution called a dock box to solve this problem found these plans for a dock storage box in Canadian home workshop magazine it's a pretty straightforward project I've got a couple of scraps of three quarter inch ply.
That we're going to use for the ends First we're going to rip them to width and then we're going to basket bottom profile plans call for a centre eight inches from the top of the basket and we want a six inch radius or other words half the basket width Clamp these together and cut them out with my jigsaw I'm going to give them a quick sanding just to tidy them up So, here we are we got a couple finished slats.these come out of five quarters by six cedar.
Really don't have to but it looks a lot better if you do some treatment to the edge alright ready for assembly I got my basket ends and my basket is upside down obviously We've got the basket finished time to do the legs plans call for two and a quarter by two and a quarter legs So, I'm going to have to rip this four by four cedar to that dimension So, I need four at seventeen These are going to be positioned like this.at both ends Here we go! Done and done!.
Now we're on to the lid! I'm gonna glue five together, good quality outdoor wood glue notice that bead dead centre that's because I know what I'm doing I'm a trained professional I've left these long because I'll cut it to length after it dries Now the worst part of this of course is that you have to wait for the glue to set.and that's going to take the good part of an hour so What am I going to do in the meantime Alright glue is set I'm just going to take the mark clamps off.
Plans call for the lid to be seventy inches in length So I'll cross cut that to length We've prompted to use these nice decorative tee hinges and most importantly They're super easy to put on could be a little overkill but I'm gonna use number nine three inch deck screws Now the plans don't call for it but you can see I added a chain stay to prevent the kids or my soninlaw from ripping the hinges out Let's get this thing down to the dock Well this dockside box sure is a big improvement.
Playing With Baby Memory Building Activities Parents
So why don't we lay Parker down for a moment Cause he's not sitting up by himself just yet. And let's just play a little game with scarves, we're just going to sing to him and play a little peekaboo. So, ready Peekaboo. I see you. Peekaboo. I see you. There are some great games you and your baby can play together to help them with object permanence. Object permanence is when something disappears, and it comes back again. It may be where you take a scarf over your face and play some Peekaboo. It may be where you take a toy.
And put it under a box. Or a carton and show your baby that it's there. Can you find it Parker He found it. So it's a great way for baby's to just build their memory, to build object permanence and really to explore and discover what they can find and where they can go. Babies at about seven, eight months start to be concerned that maybe you or the other loved ones are going into the other room, disappearing, but you always come back. So, these fun games really help them understand that baby and mommy disappear but then they.

Several cupholders are raised from the floor and integrated into the bench base for easy access.
There's also plenty of storage under all of the seats for gear, with two speakers for the sound system integrated into the aft bench back Both the captain and cocaptain will enjoy the comfortable bolstered bucket seats that show great detailing and add to the sporty flair.
