You know- I'd LOVE to get back up to AK and do some fishing. *I spent a few months up in AK back in my college years bumming around and last time my wife and I went up there aboard a cruise ship compliments of Holland America- I kept watching all the trawlers and motoryachts wishing we were aboard our own ride! *

And I hereby nominate the phrase "NO FIDDLING" to be the official TF jargon to mean "I am serious, no kidding around." *I hereby propose we all commence to implementing this new phraseology given to us by our esteemed SD.


That really cracks my ass up.

RE: Counter repair

Cary, I'll be at the boat show in Seattle Saturday but I'll have my boat partner call and set up a time to meet you.

Thanks for the reply Tony--if you do find some give me a yell, I may still need more. We have another piece that should be replaced. Some people just shouldn't be allowed near a boat with a saw --no fiddiling

RE: Counter repair

Should we have a referendum on the spelling....fiddiling or fiddling....?

RE: Counter repair

I think it is definitely "Fiddling." *

RE: Counter repair

I have absolutely no need for fiddles on our boat due to where we will be cruising 99.999999999% of the time.

'Cept when some tug is deadheading home , on the bosses fuel, and tosses a 6 ft wave.

RE: Counter repair

Unlike Tony, my counter replacement, in White Quartz, will have teak fiddles. The old fiddles coming off broke to bits too small to be re-used, so I have cut new ones. Not a difficult task, needs only moderate skill with power tools. The new fiddles will be glued to the front edge of the quartz, and are deepenough to attach to the front edge of the old plywood countertop that remains in place to support the Q.

When I get the counters done I will post a pic.

The most difficult part of this reno was getting the teak trim off without breaking the veneer of the teak wall covering above and below the counters. Some extra covering trim will hide the places where it tore up a little.
