John I would almost bet that the people who have the old factory has no idea of the history of the building they are working in now it would be cool if we could let them know what history that building has

Good News......

I needed to be downtown, Atlanta this afternoon so I decided to take a short side trip over to 450 Bishop Street to show Carol the old Feather Craft boat factory site. Despite the rampant "Urban Renewal going in the immediate area, the old facility is standing. As a matter of fact, some very active business has taken up residency there and seems to be doing well.

I thought I'd sander up to the front door and try to order a boat..........

Yeah, 6 of them at Tractor Supply wasn't too bad. I didn't even think of Harbor Freight. They're 30 minutes away though, vs. 5 for TS. That floor is really uneven so casters need to be pretty big (...and more expensive) to move over it.

I needed to build a outboard motor stand for the up and coming new motor. But I ended up building three of them. Plans off the net...
