    [–] ‘He said, No, no, no’: Trump tells crowd about trade disagreement with Trudeau Peppyperoni 4 points ago in canada

    Depends what industry you're in whether you like NAFTA or not. Try importing textiles into Canada. We get the NAFTA-shafta hard. Just about everything you try to import gets held and subject to duty, excise blah blah blah. In the negotiations the countries picked their battles. You win some you lose some I guess.

    I think the point you are trying to make stands opposed to your comment. You mean 'challenge everything these days' Your comment persuades me to 'not question anything these days'

    [–] Patreon Adding Fees - 2.9% + 0.35 Peppyperoni 6 points ago in Skookum

    I agree. I only started using patreon to give AvE a buck. I didn't think about it being an American company (duh) and so it's $1.30 in loonies. Now the buck I give him is going to cost me $2? I wonder what his margins are on sweatshirts and stuff? Fuck patreon.

    The small water heater is inefficient because it loses a lot of heat. But most of the year it's a bonus to have the water you are heating waste it's heat into your apartment.

    [–] Economic History of Boating Editorial and the Sale of SeaRay Co Press Release Peppyperoni 1 points ago in boating

    Could very well be. I liked the picture in the article that said something like 'Searay's main competition is their used boats' I wish the writer had expanded on that. I work on many many Searays, probably 95% of the power boats over 30' are Searays. And the newest is over 10 years old. Granted, being an upholsterer and canvas guy I shouldn't be seeing many brand new boats, but there isn't really a new boat market that I can see. Of the people I know who bought a brand new boat 0% are Searays. When the market is flooded with used good condition boats why would you pay several orders of magnitude more for a new one?

    [–] It’s time to brace for the day Toronto’s real estate luck runs out Peppyperoni 1 points ago in canada

    Hmm. But the prices of stuff has been going up even though minimum wage hasn't. Damned if you don't I guess too..

    Something tells me that you're the kind of guy that's also against raising the minimum wage?

    [–] One screw in a pack came with no thread Peppyperoni 2 points ago in mildlyinteresting

    The dies do look different, and you're correct, they are long

    [–] One screw in a pack came with no thread Peppyperoni 26 points ago in mildlyinteresting

    You'd be wrong. Screws are most definitely rolled like this it they were turned, screws would cost $10 each.

    [–] Bruce Peninsula in early March Peppyperoni 3 points ago in ontario

    Very little of that is going to be that fun open in March.

    Tobermory will be a ghost at that point. The grocery store, the lcbo and the bank are open most days of the week. I think the town is pretty much closed Saturday afternoon till Tuesday, November to May.

    [–] Friend tried to help someone out, was left with two months of Cogeco bills totaling over $500 Peppyperoni 11 points ago in ontario

    Reminds me of a joke, how do you know when a hippy stayed at your house? He's still there. How do you when he left? You got the phone bill.

    Sorry about your buddies luck. That sucks.

    [–] NASA Begins Building Next Mars Rover Mission Peppyperoni 5 points ago in space

    But your raspberry pi probably wouldn't survive through max Q let alone a trip to Mars.

    [–] One of my roommates smokes. This won't change. His room is next to mine. Help me think of ways to mitigate this issue. Peppyperoni 1 points ago in DIY

    The vent grill should come off, I mean the house wasn't built around it right? Even if it's screws or what ever. Then you could stick your head in or phone and get a look at where the duct comes from. You say there's no central heat so the vent might not be doing anything. You would not be the first tenant to stuff a pillow in a duct.

    [–] Becoming a boat builder Peppyperoni 1 points ago in boatbuilding

    I do not know. In Canada there are only a couple places offering naval architecture. Which also speaks to the amount of jobs available for the naval architect. In my opinion you should start off working in a boat yard or at marina. At least you'll make money learning about boats. I also think you would never get in a program without a lot of experience.

    What could you make building boats? Anywhere from nothing to a living. A living probably being the very high end.

    [–] Just finished my skin on frame kayak! Peppyperoni 3 points ago in boatbuilding

    Thanks! I call the boat 'the Squid Mark' because of this thing I made a few years ago.

    [–] Just finished my skin on frame kayak! Peppyperoni 3 points ago in boatbuilding

    Right on! I've been thinking about that. The olefin I found is only like 54" wide and so I had to sew little darts by the coaming to get enough width. So did you sew the top to the bottom? Being an upholsterer I find the idea of staples quite attractive. I wanted to make this one 'by the book' but I know it'd take half the time to staple it. I plan on making at least 3 more.

    [–] Just finished my skin on frame kayak! Peppyperoni 4 points ago in boatbuilding

    Hang on, you're the guy that made the floating green kayak! Your post is what inspired me to build this! So thanks!

    It's a 'Free B' from Kudzu Craft I had a very hard time finding suitable fabric in Canada. I tried buying some airplane wing fabric but it was so thin I didn't use it. I ended up using 100% olefin, a polyethylene fibre used mostly for ropes. I liked it, it's very tough and supposedly very good with abrasion.

    Did you know dacron is polyester? And terylene, they're the same fibre just different trade names. I was surprised to learn that.
