Re: Current Projects

Very cool ! As my collection grows I've been thinking of cooking up a bag of some kind.
After saturday I have a few repairs on the bol I made.
Seams pulled on some patches- should start doing the patches in strange colors and it will end up looking like FUGU. hehe

Steak Size?

the 8oz seems to do the trick when your talking about meat, but what about holding down the kite?

What size steak would make you feel comfortable with say my sutton 30?

Dont know as if I need the 42" circus tent stakes, although they are impressive!

Thanks `James
