Forgot to mention, the thing's shaping up. First i thought the wheel was too small and floppy, then it sat too low in the water, then the fender didn't fit the revised wheel, then it took on water, then the rudder gathered weeds, then the belt was too loose. Well it FINALLY gets me out to my favorite fishing hole without too much stress. Oh i still don't have steering, turn it by dragging an oar. But it sheds weeds & beats rowing. And makes lotsa noise - that's another thing. And the Wisconsin bigshot brought some guys over to see it run. :)

naw. I saw that but did'nt even run the IP#.

The chief priest sidestepped and then nobody answered your question at The Center For Knowledge And Basic Understanding Of Our Fellow Man Institute.

It's the same ole same ole. It's just spread from the Basic Understanding Institute and Kim aint gonna put up with it on the tractor forums.

Not even outtuh the elite. She's been having to clean Tractor Talk fairly regular, she even had to clean it up over here a few days ago.

Seems sumdem boyz that holler for free speach think that means ever body is forced into listening to them.

paddle wheel drive is not very effective for propulsion. Look up USN research on underwater propulsion.

Now Clod it did alright on the Delta Queen. Maverick played poker every week right ahead of the paddles, and he always won.

Come to think of it they never landed that ship much. Maybe it was'nt traveling good at all. ;^)
