Sloop: Restoring My Family's Wooden Sailboat--An Adventure in

Now in paperback, Daniel Robb’s Sloop proves he “is a craftsman… with words as well as with a hammer, as he constructs a charming tale that both details the technical nature of boatbuilding and captures the essence of the past, present, and future of a New England maritime community” (Publishers Weekly). • Interest in the environment and ecology: Daniel robb decided to restore his family’s well-worn wooden sailboat in appreciation for its craftsmanship and out of respect for the environment for which it was intended. Sloop’s tribute to the simple life and one’s environment will resonate with sailing enthusiasts and anyone who appreciates fine craftsmanship. • Timeless values: robb voices an ethic in which things are valued and appreciated, especially well-designed objects that still have years of useful life in them. While die-hard sailors or woodworking fanatics will love this book, robb’s skill as a writer also makes this a fascinating read for anyone. His humorous account of his on-the-job learning experience and of the eccentric characters who share his values and helped him will delight readers. “Robb writes of his painstaking restoration of a rotted 12½- foot herreshoff that had floated on memory and emotion, and finally again on water.…a gem.” ...

GoSports Portable PVC Framed Cornhole Toss Game Set with 8 Bean Bags and Travel Carrying Case - Choose American Flag Design, Red & Blue or Football

GoSports Portable PVC Framed Cornhole Toss Game Set

The GoSports PVC frame Cornhole game was designed to be the most portable Cornhole set available. The game folds down into a compact carrying case and weighs under 15 pounds so you can easily take them everywhere. The 'boards' are built using a robust PVC frame with a nylon fabric surface. While scoring is the same for these boards (1 point on the board and 3 points in the hole), game play is slightly different because of the lightweight materials used. Bags will bounce on the boards and may not slide the same as wood sets, but once you get used to the different style of play, they are a BLAST to use. We are sure some cornholers will complain that this set cannot provide the traditional Cornhole experience, but these are made as a highly portable Cornhole option for people who don't want to bring out their full size set (beach, camping, younger kids, etc.). If you are looking for a traditional Cornhole set, GoSports manufactures a full line of premium sets. The set includes 2 targets, 8 bean bags (sand filled), a carrying case and rules. Available in Classic Red & Blue, American Flag or Football Designs.
