Off Topic / Drug testing in America
« on: September 04, 2014, 11:38:29 AM »
What I want to know is:
Why is it that for the last 20 years or more of my career I have been subjected to random drug testing but  if you collect unemployment or receive welfare you don't get tested? Everyone I know who has a job gets tested, at least Pre employment.
I say if you stay home and receive tax dollars then you should be treated like the rest of the hardworking Americans that provide those dollars!
Pee in this cup and we'll hand you your check.

Other Boats that I Own / "Haole Sampan"
« on: September 01, 2014, 07:11:39 PM »
Well Brian,
I guess Ill be the one to kick this off.
Currently I have 5 boats in the yard, 2 are fully functional and the other 3 are in various stages of resurrection. I am considering a GA in my future but we'll see, should finish a couple more of my current inventory prior to starting another build!
Before we get into any of the current boats I would like to show you my favorite boat from the past.
The "Lori Ann" was a 42ft plank on frame single Cat diesel Haole Sampan built in 1959 in Honolulu Hawaii. Its an interesting story on how I got her and restored her over a period of about 8 yrs.
The first pic is after her first of many dry docks under my ownership, this one was 9 months. Only the hull had been addressed in this shot, she's anchored on a dive site.
The last 2 pics show what she looked like later on in life. My wife, twin sons and I have many fond memories of working on her and fishing this vessel.
Do you want to here about it? I also have many photos but I have to scan them in as this all happened back in the 90's.
