It’s been a while.
Both posting here and building boats.
Between mid December and now 1,936mm of rain has fallen on the boatyard. “Miss Maree” nearly went a-voyaging on her own accord.
The ‘humpy’ (Aboriginal word for a temporary shelter) has withstood the deluge admirably well. The boat is dry.
No more excuses, I almost saw the sun this morning, I must go and float my boat.
First job is to remove the building frame from under the boat. The humpy is in summer mode to allow easy runoff for the rain. That means very little room to work over the port hull.
I need room to paint.
The mast and rigging have arrived, and eventually the boom too.
I have learnt not to set a deadline for launching.
The fixed price, fixed date phase is over, now we’re into the profitable time and materials phase.
Just kidding, of course.
