Got to spend another day with the grinders today :roll: I am prepping to install the new stringers. Hope to make a good start on them tomorrow. We will see how it goes.

You and me both! I hate having to pick up the grinders but it is part of the job that can not be avoided. I try to do the grinding at the end of the day so I can go straight from there to the rain locker.

Did any one ever tell you that you have a mean streak :?: :roll:

What makes it worse is the winter we are having this year. Snow then real cold, warm up and rain, turn everything into glare ice so slick you have to wear ice cleats outside, repeat and repeat :cry: This winter has sucked and is not getting any better. Looks like I get to spend the day plowing snow.

It froze here Monday while I was camping. Whacked all the semi-tropical plants around the house. Going to freeze harder Saturday night. Everything is inside or covered. Cold here is "different".

If I can see my breath down here it is too cold to be outside (unless sailing). Now call me weak (the wife does) but that’s my rule.

I will mention that I have heat on the helms. That and the ability to make hot drinks underway. Otherwise … see that breath and go back to bed.

Here’s were Fuzz’s head explodes… breath is generally visible at about 50 if humidity is high.

Part of being cold comes from the temperature change. If you are used to 90 and it drops to 60 you are cold. If it ha been -20 and it warms up to 30 you are hot. I do know that damp cold some places get sure feels colder than what the temp really is.

So the bottom of the hull inside not very level and needed a gap to prevent hard spots. I cut a piece of Divinacell to set the stringers on.

And will be glassing them down,

That will give me something to do for the next few days. :roll:
