Will do... trying to stay out of sight and mind of the Pemex company men... apparently they have been asking for tons of stupid documentation... lovely, just what I need... how much does the slip joint weigh by the foot???" WTF... It weights 34,000 lbs, do you want that at it's closed up 55 foot length, or do you want it at mid stroke, or do you want it at it's fully scoped out length of 92 feet... WTF...

At 55' it would be 618.18 lb's/ft or 34,000 lbs...
At 73.5' it would be 462.58 lb's/ft or 34,000 lbs...
At 92', it would be 369.56 lb's/ft or 34,000 lbs...

Don't know what kind of equipment that is, but I can read 34,000 lbs

Out of sight and mind sounds really good right now!

24in section= 156.1742 lbs/ft
21in section=136.13046lbs/ft

Formula to find wt. of steel pipe
Wt/ft= (10.69x(OD-wall thickness))x wall thicknes

10.69x(21-.625)x .625 =136.13046
10.69x(24-.625)x .625=156.1742

this is just staight pipe though

Stupid in Spanish is "el stupido"
in German it's "sheishkopf"
in french it's "parlaiz vouz dumass"
in italian it's a hand gesture.

So, as you can see in the above examples, stupid is indeed NOT stupid in any language.......... BTW, due to the above correction in your beliefs, you may have realized we do consulting for your firm. The spreadsheet is a great idea, we'll get back with you on that after our wednesday "efficiency in constructive thinking" meeting.

If something comes up, you got the perfect excuse for not attending to it... you got this prior thing you haven't done yet... so maybe later you'll address the new thing that came up...

So, I got a message from Corey last night, the bulkhead electrical connector arrived so that portion of the ongoing modifications is about 90% done now...

It's off to Corey's house of rattle can powder coating and then it'll be installed...

Fuel cell...
