Your table is looking good. I am sure that is something that was needed. I have been working on a cockpit table for Steve's DownEastern 32. Did I mention I hate blow boats sometimes? Spent 5 days changing out a cuttless bearing. Ended up pulling the engine to get the shaft out so we could get to the cuttless. Real piece of quality engineering that is. That and having no space for two old fat guys made for some long days :cry:

Do you really want to hand a dock line to south end of a northbound grizzly? Most people don’t like the idea that the dockhand might chew through the line. There might be distinct temperature advantages to less hair but I can’t prove it.

I had one goal today… get backing plates on. Forking dumb donkey me can’t plan anything. Couldn’t locate my open tube of 4200. Couldn’t find the templates. Couldn’t find a charged battery. Couldn’t get nuts off three of the winches solo. I did get one fit but the plate isn’t sealed and the winch is not bedded. I will have water ingress.

At least I had cold beer in the fridge at home.

My day did not go smashingly well either. It is 110F in the boat tent. So moved some work inside and spent most of the day trying to redo the helm riser/seat station.

I know the sentiment of mud becoming kwiksand

Today's exercise in futility...

Look for already open 4200 tube that multiple people remember you storing in 4 different locations... find nothing.
Attempt to remove carb from 9.9 while mounted on boat and drop nut in cowling. 1.5hr to recover.
Take carb home in a "sealed container" to discover that the container has a hole in the bottom allowing "carb juice" to get into the carpet of boss lady's Sequoia (I didn't have the guts to tell the boss lady it was gas).
Disassemble and reassemble carb to find one little needle thing left laying on the table.
Repeat but with an extra screw...
Repeat but short a screw...
Assemble properly but have not enough time to go back to boat to reinstall.

Current state... now out of beer. Someone hates me. I think it is me.

Tomorrow starts a 6day/60hr stretch at "the office". 100+ small boats and PWC are in for the weekend and then I moved some days around to attend an "engagement party" for my daughter. I guess times are changes as in my day that was more of a "are two stripes bad" type thing.

Oh man! Have I been there. Disassembling outboards over the water hoping dropped pieces dont find their way through a cowling drain, AND getting gas in the wifes car. My wife is a total sport, but gas or diesel fumes are over her line.

I'm outside the loop on the engagement party, is she getting hitched or signed up for a hitch?
There are only two seasons in Vermont: boating season, and boat-building season.

Getting hitched early next year. Mrs tells me it just an excuse to drink liquor. Works for me.
