As a boat owner myself, I recommend that you make sure you have the permission of the BOAT OWNER, not the storage yard person, before setting foot on a boat. There are many things you need to be aware of that are not issues in the land-based world. For example, a chunk of wax falling into the bilge may seem like nothing to you, but when it clogs up the bilge pump when the person needs it most, it can be a disaster, or at least very expensive.
nope Im screwed now, I have 2 deeps left, 15 empty frames(no foundation), no tops or bottom boards, all these cut-outs been too big for a nuc (figures have 10 of them sitting) and I have 3 cut-outs to do, not counting the boats :roll:
I agree hobie, and I know the boating world well, I have a 28 footer and live 5 min from the gulf, the boat owner has 2 real happy days, when he buys it and when he sells it :lol: but I will get in writing permision to do any work of any kind on this 1
Talked to the boat yard, he has 4 boats with large hives, he said they been in the boats for over a year , I told him it be 2 weeks before I could even look at it and he said no rush, love no pressure jobs gives me time to order more gear.
Dear Santa, I've been very good this year.For Christmas I would like some more equipment.I need deeps,lots of deeps,and more frames.At least ten times as many frames as boxes.And a fork-lift and and and it never ends. Sincearly,Zookeep
"Santa.....I need deeps, and more frames. At least ten times as many frames as boxes."
Santa responds: "What? You don't think Santa knows about beekeeping? You don't think Santa knows there are ten frames in a box? You think Santa is new at this?
Hmmmmmmmmmm! Let me check that naughty and nice list again."
"Dear Santa I need it all."
Santa replies:" What? Living in Florida and having almost year round beekeeping isn't enough, while friends in other places are shoveling snow?
Hmmmmmmmmmm, where's that list again?"
Talked with the yard again and going to start the removals in January sometime, glad they are holding off cause after today's email I have 3 others to do 1st.
today's email: "The hive is totally open air under a low eave on our house . Slice off and one has 'everything'. I'd be interested in keeping a good sampling of comb/honey(I've never tried to poison/kill, and even fed them some fruit juices, never stung)." sounds like 1 I would want ancing:
