Default It was one of those days

We should have just stayed in the classroom yesterday. We broke off a bolt on a Snapper engine and a thermostat bolt on the Honda Outboard. We also sanded through the paint on the boat. Good news is they were able to learn how drill a bolt to install a helicoil.And we stayed after school and sanded the boat and put on another two coats. Learning is about making mistakes.Its all good.
bhales , Thanks for the project offer but with around 30 students they all have 4 wheelers and toys they are able to work on .We are never without something to work on.

That is a very important lesson. Working through problems when things don't go right....and putting in the time to make it right. Great job. You're a very special teacher and your students are lucky to have you.

One thing I noticed, is that there is some physical, ethnic and economic diversity in your class.
These kids are working towards a common goal, together, adults can learn a thing or two from your students.

Default Boat

Was able to turn the boat today.We decided to go ahead and pull wires before installing the fuel tank and painting the top or bilge. We also started a in frame overhaul on a John Deere 850.They were also able to get the console painted and installing gauges and electrical for the final time. We are trying to have everything pre-wired so it will just be plug and play.

Was able to get the tank installed and all hooked up. Will build the front wall tomorrow.
We also found some house letters and put the boat name on. They also made good progress on wiring the console

Looks sharp! Had I caught this earlier, I would have donated epoxy primer and 2K primer. Enjoy your retirement!
