    Thank you for your feedback Scott! I still can’t believe I held that little metal piece in my hand…and then pulled the drill trigger. But really, who hasn’t done that…twice?

    My last Post was in a Yupik Eskimo (that is their preferred identity) village located 400 miles west of Anchorage, Alaska, by the Yukon River, with no roads in or out. Getting parts for a project like this was straight out of a Joseph Conrad novel. For the rebuild, we moved the boat to your neck of the woods. As this area is an industrial powerhouse, we can easily find any tools or materials nearby. I believe we are about 3 hours East of you!

    The flag staff, and the boat, look really good, Nick. I appreciate the honesty, or maybe humor, in your video. I usually try to sand or machine something while holding it down on a scrap of wood several times before I give up and get an actual clamp or vise. In one extreme case I eventually had to get my neighbor, and his drill press, to help.

    Is there enough daylight (and warmth!) there to get work done between October and May?

    I found the etiquette answer at https://www.usps.org/f_stuff/etiquett.html#updated-code, then made a flagstaff that flies off the stern for one of today's projects. I made a video showing the project. https://youtu.be/hIWUNLdTqxs

    Hello,

    Can anyone advise me on the proper size and positioning of a flag staff, for the National Flag, on a junk rig schooner? Is it on the stern, vertical or angled? I’d like to fly a flag with dimensions 16x24 inches (41x61cm). Thank you.

    Nick
