About a week and a half ago I was invited to give a lecture to the Bellingham Power Squadron on catamarans.
I figured that I would power through the images from the blog and talk story a bit on the informative ones. Not that easy.
My little laptop is only a few years old. Turns out it was too old. It did not have an HDMI port and nobody had an adaptor. So it couldn’t talk to the bigscreen. We did copy some pictures onto a thumbdrive for the bigscreen, but then the bigscreen crashed.
Luckily I had lots of composite construction samples to pass around, and put together a presentation from those. Improvise!
For me, the big take-away was from my host Alex who built one of my 45 cats with an aeroesque rig.
He noted that he joined the power squadron to be able to attend their classes on wiring and other technologies. I had not considered that before. Something for people to look into.
