I took the kayak out into the Columbia River this morning. After about 30 mins my butt was asleep from sitting on the hard seat so I decided it was time to buy the padded gel seat cushion I have been considering.

Look at the writing on the cushion. Who knew there are mutant yak paddle saddles?

The Journey Matters - the Mutant Kayakers equivalent of the RVMs Journey is the Destination. It makes sense to me!

Yes and without any reprimands (that I know of) so far. Mutants are well-behaved, and always on topic!!!

We are indeed a well behaved group of self actualized mutants. Nary a wag of the finger nor admonishment since kicking it off back in April. I have expressed my pride of this several times before. Aside from our fine mutant qualities - I think it's because Ya Gotta Wanna Beehair. And - we mutants do not hide behind the anonymity of the Internet. We come out into the open - share what we don't have and don't miss - we drop pretense at the door to the RVMdom and accept that the journey is the destination. Hard to be ugly or OT when you know you're among your mutant friends. But I do suspect an all Mutant Curiosity (mutant rally for new mutants benefit) could be a little on the wild side.... Lots of pent up excitement over such a auspicious occasion. Just sayin!

MartySQ - saw your Honey roof thread. I can't believe you are tackling that yourself. DH must have an important task at hand! If I were closer I would hold the ladder and pass ya things. I think ya got a good piece of advice on getting an electric all purpose tool from Sears. Like all paint and coating jobs - once ya have her prepped the rest will come easy. Best of luck!

To me that whole statement above is just your expressly polite way of informing MartySQ that you are inbound to drink all the beer. Find out if they have scotch and I'll offer to assist also.

You fellas are a piece of work...LOL!
Speaking of the ladder, I just about knocked myself off of it pulling that tape stuff off this afternoon...LOL... guess that multi tool is a good idea...

Hubby has his Powered parachute he is always tinkering on.. he does the maintenece on it himself and helps with some stuff on my toy, (Honey), but then, I help a little on his toy when asked to also. Don't worry, I'll ask when I need to. I'd feel better with scaffolding around her even if she is only 10 ft tall minus the AC, but I'll be ok. Little bit by little bit will get the job done.

What be this Craftsman all-purpose tool anyway. Is it something similar to the Binford 2000?

As to the roof restoration/fixing on Honey: I second the scaffolding idea. Ladders and my "big bird" frame do not get along.

How about some details on the exact nature of the roof leak problem. Maybe we can toss out some advice since many of us are familiar with such fixing. Advice is free ... labor cost is adjusted to the price of beverages.

It is the Binford 2013. Check out her thread Honey Sprung a Leak. Pictures included. Big job for a Big Bird. Possum is on his way - LOL.

On Edit: actually it's an Oscillating Multi Tool that includes a scraper - that will get under the gunk and get if off faster and easier than a trowel or putty knife.
