I am in the early phase of building a Vortech superchaged 15f motor and was talking to a buddy with a turbo ultra out in norcal about cooling. He said in CC trim the water temps never get hot so I asked what the water temp was. He said 60-70F... We hit 90+ in Houston and it's brown most of the time...

I completely see the appeal of California but I can't justify the move because despite some shortcomings, I love Texas.

Found this epic bookshelf design on the internet a few years back so I finally decided to tackle it!

Now that Clive Cussler has passed, my complete collection of all his books needs to be displayed with honor.




Borrowed a router table from my neighbor and ordered a Tongue and Groove bit from Amazon.









Couple long days later...Nailed it!

Yeah, it's an extra deep one car with laundry in it. It's a sacrifice we had to make to walk to the beach.

We upgraded to a 3 bay garage and it has been so much nicer. Walking distance from a beach would be pretty awesome too though!

We love so many things about our current home but my wife dangled this little carrot in front of me last night...
I don't think it trumps our current situation in any way shape or form though. Just more to clean and keep up.
And as much as I would love another shop, I'm never home enough to use it.

Retractable boat straps and leave them bolted to the hitch hauler and wing nuts on the pinch bolt.
I’ve thought about the retractable boat straps. The problem is I don’t have a rear eyelet and I wrap the strap over the tray with a turfed 1x6 over top. So it needs to be about 7 feet long and I haven’t found one that’s made to be mounted that long. Maybe I’ll come up with something using a regular 10’ retractable strap.

You work your arse off. Need to get something that is a 10k sq ft shop with a 2 bed 1 bath studio right on the beach. :)

Someday. It’s too soon for that yet though. I am likely to move again within 2-3 years for work so until I reach retirement age, there’s not much sense putting roots down too deep.
