OK curling fans, picked up an antique powder flask on Evilbay for a low price. Have been wanting on with an adjustable measuring spout for a long time. Middle setting pours 60 grains and the other 2 settings don't differ either way no more than 5-6 grains. Now I have this for my Pyrodex for the charge in muzzle loading guns and my other old Colt flask for real black powder for priming flintlock pans. Pyrodex doesn't work in flintlock pans.
Realizing that I only had 3 pix of the flask, I threw in a pic of the marina security guard next to my new dingy prop.. That will be the fastest dingy on the Island when I get it mounted on my outboard ! Friends have suggested that I need a larger dingy, but I know what I'm doing. Another day on CyberAsylum ! As expected, no category for guns, shooting, blunderbusses, flintlocks etc..
OK! OK!, maybe those yachties aren't so stupid ! I think I just needed more ballast in the front, er, pointed end, er, bow. Yeah, bow, that's it ! Maybe a little too much weight in the dull end, or whatever it's called. Not easy to remember all those nautical terms when your heard is hanging over the side watching 2 days worth of what you had eaten being dived at by sea gulls in the wake ! LOL !! My favourite part of sailing is reaching port.
Have a nice next no-name holiday, friends.
