    Or you can do as I did when my wife started complaining. I got rid of her like an old John Deere.

    Now! Now! Don't be too hasty. As a last resort, there's always plan C to fall back on... you could always try getting the Mrs into the hobby too.

    I seen this and had to pass it on.. The U. S. S.. Constitution (Old Ironsides), as a combat vessel, carried 48,600 gallons of fresh water for her crew of 475 officers and men. This was sufficient to last six months of sustained operations at sea. She carried no evaporators (i.e. fresh water distillers). However, let it be noted that according to her ship's log, "On July 27, 1798, the U.S.S. Constitution sailed from Boston with a full complement of 475 officers and men, 48,600 gallons of fresh water, 7,400 cannon shot, 11,600 pounds of black powder and79,400 gallons of rum ." Her mission: "To destroy and harass English shipping." Making Jamaica on 6 October, she took on 826 pounds of flour and68,300 gallons of rum. Then she headed for the Azores , arriving there 12 November. She provisioned with 550 pounds of beef and 64,300 gallons of Portuguese wine . On 18 November, she set sail for England. In the ensuing days she defeated five British men-of-war ships, and captured and scuttled 12 English merchant ships, salvaging only the rum aboard each. By 26 January, her powder and shot were exhausted. Nevertheless, although unarmed she made a night raid up the Firth of Clyde in Scotland. Her landing party captured a whisky distillery and transferred 40,000 gallons of single malt Scotch aboard by dawn. Then she headed home. The U. S. S. Constitution arrived in Boston on 20 February 1799, with no cannon shot, no food,no powder, no rum , no wine , no whisky , and 38,600 gallons of water . GO NAVY !

    Salt water showers were no doubt used for bathing, as for the drunken part; no comment!

    I had an Uncle who made a career in the Navy. And He loved his hooch. God Bless him. And I thank him for his service.

    I'm liking these guys already!! NAVY...can't imagine why it is the best branch of the service. You know...you can work up a thirst salvaging all that stuff. This really parallels my trip to the BIG SHOW. California would be proud of their water conservation practices.

    Wow.. that's about 1 gallon of water and 200 gallon of alcohol per day per man. That had to be one boat load of drunken smelly sailors. .

    Here are some photos I took of John's "car" horse during the 2015 Big Show. It was a hit with me and everyone who stopped and looked at it. A real combo of Wheel Horse parts and inqenuity!

    Thanks guys! Kate (tractorchick here on RS) was nice enough to do an article on these since she saw them at the big show. Nice to get a RedSquare plug in there too. Karen (kthack657 here on RS) also did a nice article in the WHCC newsletter on them. Billy Albright, WHCC president, put a sign on the first one after he bought it which read " El Presidentes Car ". Then he drove it in the parade.
