None of the credit rating agencies are capable of issuing even remotely accurate credit ratings – because they get their funding from companies and countries who PAY them to issue credit ratings, I am going to issue my own credit ratings. I will defend the reasoning, and I will explain why they are going to be accurate as we go forward. I am no longer a licensed broker or financial consultant. I might suggest what I'd do, in my limited circumstance, but nothing I say should ever be taken as financial advice. The bottom line is that you are going to lose you ass. Almost everyone is. If you tell me where your investments are, and what they are, I'll save you if you bother to listen – and pay me for the advice. You are still going to lose, but I can keep you from losing it all. I have taken care of myself. I don't need anything from anyone. But the advice most people are getting is from idiots that are making money off YOU. Their advice is going to be in their best interests, not yours. Time's almost up and I am recession proof. You aren't. But destitution is not the problem. Dying is. Last offer.
It seems to me that the main concern in Hawaii for vehicles and even containers – if we disregard security – is avoidance of direct sunlight and direct rain. I have an old-as-the-hills pipe structure I park my truck under and it suffices – but I went out a few days ago and looked, and it's almost completely rusted through. It will collapse bumbye.
Therefore I decided to rebuild it. There are two types of angle fittings – the grey ones with curved angles Which is what my 'garage is made of), and the gold ones with sharp angles. I found someone with a lot of them, many new, and I grabbed them – BOTH KINDS. So now I have enough of them to build a bunch of 'standard' vehicle covers, sans the metal pipes. I am going to use Schedule 40 PVC instead, and reinforce the stress points – or even use double components for strength because metal is simply too expensive.
The point is that I have a few too many for my own use. These fittings go for $12-$15 each at HPM plus tax (Home Depot doesn't carry them) and it takes 12 of them for a structure ~30 feet long – but you can make double-wides or any length you want. And, of course, you can make them large enough to cover two stacked containers. I even have bolt-on pipe holders for catchment tanks so you can anchor your circus tent and use PVC instead of metal to keep your UV covers out of the water – which you want to do unless you like drinking bird poop. 🙂
Bottom line: $65 for twelve, pick-of-the-litter, including screws. That makes the same structure I have over my truck, but poles, cover and ball bungee cords are not included. This is just the hardware. I'm making about five bucks on the deal – not enough to discount them any more.
The offer is good 'till it ain't.
