  1. Things overheard at FTPI 2014

    Some of us don't do Facebook and have to visit Fort Taylor vicariously through the Pub ..... how was the event this year? No surgeons journal, no photos no after action reports .... nothing. Bummer.
  2. Waterproofing Tent Canvas

    I used to use a waterproofer called Preservo, specifically for canvas ..... It's parafin dissolved in mineral spirits. I found it at a sign shop that made awnings and such. I would check at a marina that handles sailboat canvas. It came in gallon cans and you paint it on and give time for the mineral spirits to evaporate. It kinda smells like mineral sprits forever but it's not unbearable and it is a technique that goes back quite a long time.
  3. Some New Stuff!!

    The aforementioned boots are gone now.
  4. Some New Stuff!!

  5. Some New Stuff!!

    Wow it's been awhile since I posted anything here been busy as can be. I came across some really nice boots yesterday. They are white "Storm Trooper" boots, they can be dyed black for our uses. These are quite servicable shoes and come from the prop dept surplus bin. I have 2 pair, a 12-1/2 wide and an 11. There are also 2 pair of short "bootees" in black with elastic side panels "tie fighter pilot" shoes or Steam Punk Victorian Era Civilian shoes sizes 12 & 12-1/2 both wide I'll take $50.00 a pair and pay the shipping. I'll post photos if any interest.

  13. Surf's Up!

    I'm ready to head to work now, too. Just saw the weather channael and it looks like the thing will get just past the Keys as a tropical storm and then "wind up" in the Gulf heading for LA or MS & AL ..... batten down on the upper Gulf Coast!! Swab ,,, your boat's in Florida Bay, right? The wind will push out all the water and you'll be aground ?!? Hurricane Party in the Keys ..... be safe you guys. Cap'n Jim the pic you posted looks like a bowl of spaghetti .... we've already had a little band come over us in Western Polk County this morn ..... most likely be drivin' home in squally crap tonite on the way home from "Fantasy Land". Magic Kingdom has "extra magic hours" til 1 am in the morn! Business as usual!
  14. Surf's Up!

    To all the South and South Western Florida friends ..... make a bowl o' rum punch and settle in for a bit of a blow!! To everybody in the Keys, loosen the storm moorings and fuel the generators. Southwest Friends, I think y'all will be OK, just put the TV up on blocks and break out the sandbags ... Those of us in Central Florida ..... no real excitement just business as usual ..... a few squall lines -n- feeder bands. Looks like L. A.* & the Panhandle are gonna take the brunt of this one. Above all be safe and take care of yourselves. Probably makes Mr. Redwake happy that he's in the mountains for once. *Lower Alabama

    Happy Birthday Fayma!! We sure have missed ya at the Pub ..... Hope this Birthday finds you (and Poppa) well. DRINKS ON ME, RUM PUNCH ALL ROUND!!!
