    Pyrotechnics are your friend.

    Look at all the crap coming up in the water. They’re blowing big snags to ease dredging, probably for flood control. Anon had it correct; detcord to ignite the charges set by divers.

    det cord burns at 26,000 ft per sec

    That’s a damn big beaver dam that got demolished. Too bad the guy who owned the deck wasn’t informed beforehand.

    Or…mebbie it was his doing after all. Looks to me like the deck survived pretty much intact.

    Wow. And people say 19th century trappers were hard on beavers…

    I kind of miss the days when I could run down town & buy a few sticks of stumping dynamite.

    June Cleaver: “Ward, weren’t you a little hard on the Beaver last night”
    Ward Cleaver: “Now June.”

    I stand corrected. Consulted (I sent the video) with the family demo expert, who said that the ignitior wasn’t detcord (not enough shockwave coming off it), but was “shocktube”, which he described as a flexible plastic tube coated on the inside with an aluminum based flash powder. Comes with a blasting cap in one end. Cut to length, insert cap into boom stuff. Insert the cut end into a device that holds the open end against a shotgun primer, with a sprung loaded striker hitting the primer when squeezed., Much safer than electrical blasting caps, especially near radios or static generated by helicopter blades (guess where he got his experience 🙂 ). He also said that the tube is translucent, so the flash was visible in dim light.

    I remember that scene, Snipe. I think the whole conversation went like this

    JUNE: Ward, werent you a little hard on the Beaver last night

    WARD: Well June, there are times when the Beaver wants to slack off; then you need to ride the Beaver hard. You got to be firm. Ask Wally, he knows. After all, he sleeps with the Beaver

    JUNE: But if you push too hard, the Beaver tends to clam up; and then its difficult to get the Beaver to open up again. I think you should try a softer approach
