I really have to work my self up for 16 Degrees

So it was a balmy 16 degrees today BUT progress we must


I had to put a new drain line on the ice box which was a BITCH even with the hole cut it was at my MAX reach but the pan covers the drain so you have to do it RIGHT


Clamped back in place to drill the 7 holes and spot the locations in the SS beam

Pan back out yet again to drill and tap the holes

Glad i did not screw the layout UP or break any taps


Pan back in again and i really hope its the last time


Nothing like a bit of teak to spruce things up

The New Stainless Beam Is Fitted


Enough of Winter it was another weekend of 18 deg but the boat must move forward and when the sun hits the tarps at 10AM the solar is pretty amazing and its gets tolerable to work in the boat



Now i just have to weld the 3 tabs to the beam and wait for a warm enough day to redo the glass work

The Winter Is STILL Brutal

I have been doing a bunch of atomic 4 repairs on the weekday evenings because i have a heated place to work.

I was looking forward to doing some hull work this weekend BUT we are looking at 15 degrees again :(

The Winter Is Brutal

I had some much needed time off and stayed away form the boat to recharge myself and its just as well, we have had steady 20 degree weather with many days of 30 to 50 MPH winds

I have found if its below 38 degrees i just cant make and progress on the boat as it takes to long to warm up the boat and any painting and fiberglass work requires 50 degrees for 24 hours
