Long time no post

Kitchen and living room have consumed all my time. I'll be back at it soon. 

My plan to use Awlgrip isn't going to happen. Instead I'm using Imaron. 

More in that later. 

In the mean time...

Kitchen / first floor remodel has boat progress dead in the water. 

I did check out a couple jet boats while my friend was looking at a motor for his car.

The majority of the glass work is complete!

Best part? I can walk around in the hull to work on stuff now! Stretching to get to the middle of the hull has destroyed my lower back. 

There's a few places where there's bubbles and dry spots I need to patch up but she's water tight and stuff as a board now. 

I'm working on some transome knees to hold the fuel tank in place and add some structural support. 

Also my son dropped his stuffed animal in the toilet:

Tunnel cored

Feels good to be able to stand in the boat again.

Life delays

Work. Travel. Broken water pipes flooding the house. Attempted appliance repair. These are just some of the things delaying boat work. It's also really cold in the garage and I need to tinker with mixing the resin a little hotter. But not too hot!

Boat related: since we're right by the river we headed down to check out the Christmas Ships. Pretty cool. No speed boats though!

Fire truck boat was definitely the winner.
