    Thanks for the info. I have a bulb almost the same type and have been wondering how to open it.

    Life events

    You are very lucky that no one was hurt. Fire can spread very quickly. I have been in your position and had a fire on my boat caused by a heater. The fire department was there very quickly and since I never locked the boat the damage was just to the interior. Lucky I had insurance and some good friends that stopped me from being homeless. It was close to four months before I was back on board. J Zuch

    Rouse Simmons- "The Christmas Tree Ship"

    Very nicely done with weight restrictions. It is nice to see a Great Lakes boat being done. These ships sailed on the most dangerous waters in the world, in 450 years over 6000 ships have be wrecked on the lakes. In 1987 while living on my boat in Victoria I did a Great Lakes boat.

    Light Bulb Question

    A number of years ago I did a tug and log boom in a light bulb. When I made the cut I tried to make the cut as straight as possible. I also kept the end so when I put it back together I could match the cut and solder it together again. I also did a lot of filling to hide the cut. I am doing another light bulb right now and am doing it the same way. John Zuch Courtice Ontario
