chicken lobsters go for anywhere from $4.99 to $6.99 / LB around here right now.   they can be found on sale for $3.99,  if you look for them.  I like to look in the tanks at the big ones :)

Up here they are $24/pound, uncooked.  You see, lobsters have a difficult time climbing up the sides of the Rocky Mountains :D  :D

Sjors..........you are   'too cool!'  ;)

 

tha's an interesting thought Augie.....must be so sad not to taste  'real seafood'  that far inland....my brother in law lives in Texas,  and he hates the seafood down there.....nothing like up here.

 

that's an interesting observation John.......they say that every creature is adapted to it's enviroment......can you imagine what a mountain lobster would look like.........scarry!

YUP!

I can remember castration day on the farm as a boy the vet always got the rock mountain oysters, or at least ours did. Then my 1st job in high school was in a packing house. I've never actually had them though.

Maybe you could take the pleasure barge colorado river rapids runnin' and catch some of those Rocky Mountain Lobster while riding the white water, while pulling 2 water skiers. I think the Phylly C's up to the challenge.

 

Now what do Rocky Mountain Lobster traps look like?

I think I'll pass on those oysters, but Rocky Mountain Lobsters...isn't that a baseball team?

I'll pass on 'em as well........sounds too much like a fetish....LOL!  wouldn't have the foggyest on how to catch them ;).......perhaps the correct term would be snared......rather than caught.

I would listen to it Wayne.......but it wouldn't work for me.  thanks for thinking of me.

 

 

I figure I had better post something on this build.......lobster fever is starting to overflow into other threads.........I'm going to get the riot act!  anyway........I decided to make up the sail for the Denny-Zen,  at the same time that I made them for the AmericA build.   I couldn't find the diagram for the lobster boat,  so I took some quick measurements and traced it out on the material supplied in the kit.

it was then cut out,  and the edging and the pleats were sewn in.   once it was trimmed and Ironed,  it was painted over with a diluted solution of white glue and water.

then it was laid on plastic wrap to dry

thank you all again folks!  I keep telling the admiral that it's not true that ships are the only things we {I} think about......nice to know this proves my point.  :)

 

Just reading up.  Good to know I'm not the only one with this problem.  Oh and did some one say Sjors was buying?

now that the sails are all done,  the assembly process can continue.   I figured that I'd rig this one first,  before getting back to the AmericA build.   the beauty of this sail,  is that there is no manipulation to it.

    once it is errected it just stays put.  it is merely there to keep the boat from rocking while the traps are being brought up,  unloaded,  and rebaited.   the mast is removable,  later the entire structure can be folded up,  or even taken down completely and stored on the deck.  there wasn't any tackle at all in the kit, just sail material and string.  I added in the 5mm double block for the down haul and the boom lift.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
