While walking along a beach north of Kapa'a on kauai my wife found a large tangle of net and rope that had washed ashore and was half buried in the sand. My mouth was watering! Ropes of all size's,finger thick to 5 1/5". Dozens of different nets,thick and thin and in a rainbow of colors. I was able to cut a few pieces of rope and a couple of large sections of net wid my pocket knife. The big thick mooring ropes were beyond the capabilities of my knife. pix to follow in bout a week.
Cheers

here are the pix.
as found



At home`not sure where it will be used. 3 pc.s net 4’x12', 4’x8’, and 4’x10'

Gonna use the largest gauge net for some large glass floats I have been holding off making some netting for.
I really like the color of the found net.

Picked up this outrigger at a thrift in Claremont, Ca. Missing the sail kit but there are plenty of examples on TC that making a copy is no problem.
Cheers

H10, I poked around with that thought. The sand was very dense-I wished that I’d had a shovel. Especially after I talked to a local at his campsite and he had a float (plastic/rubber?) hanging in a tree at his campsite.
The net was buried at the high-tide line right as soon as you get to the first parking area at Anahola beach park
Anahola beach park is apprx, 14 miles n/o Kapa’a. Coming down from Princeville/Hanalei town it is precisely two exits south of “Whalers General Store”. I carry a small pocket knife (not on da plane) but it wasn’t enough.
Are you on Kauai yet?
Later,
David

Found some cool stuff this weekend at the Long Beach antique swap.

SANTA!! For only $35






And this vintage pull down lamp. Does anyone have any brochures or ads on this lamp? I'm trying to figure out the year of production on this thing. I'm hoping that it's early '60s, but I have a buddy who is calling it mid-sixties…





Also found this thing too! You can see her in the Book of Tiki (pictured on the right).

Spike, the lamp reminds me of a Rembrandt brand lamp. My grandparent's had fixtures like that in their house. I have a floor lamp that used to belong to them.
Rembrandt made traditonal and modern style lamps.

I just did a pretty extensive search under that Rembrandt name and didn't find much from that era…

This is the closest I've seen to my lamp…

Spike, it's possibly by Virden. Since you're thinking thinking '61 check out Virden's '59 catalogue.
