By The Skipper:
Cruisers on the beach working on putting the boat back together.
Not looking forward to the next task at hand - crawling into the lazarette with a bucket of noxious liquid and a brush to scrub away 43 years accumulation of grunge and crud. I am waiting for a reasonably dry day, fortunately in the forecast for tomorrow, so I can throw open the hatches and work in fresh air and light, if not actual sun light.
There are still a few more coats of paint and varnish to be applied to pieces we have already cut, some epoxy and glass work on the hull and two coats of paint over the interior fiberglass surfaces before we can begin putting things back to gether.
While it is raining, we will get Laura set up to continue varnishing. The pieces I painted this morning should be dry enough to move to the other table this afternoon.
Progress is slow but it is all coming together.
