The project is alive!!!!

I have a renewed enthusiasm (ok, obsession) which is driven in part by the beautiful weather here enhancing my desire to have my own boat, and in part by the fact that I am likely moving out of the house with the basement this July.

I'm back on track, bought a bunch more tools at Hardwick's, set up my epoxy resin + hardener with calibrated pumps for easy mixing, finalized the arrangement of (and screwed down) the stations on the strongback, installed the bow + stern forms, and made the inner and outer bow stem laminations. They're pretty. Stern stems tonight. Wish I could take a pic but I don't have my camera anymore :-(

But yay! My goal is to get the hull stripped and glassed, and the deck stripped and glassed, before I have to move out. That way the boat will be in two "easy" to move pieces, and in a stable and storable state (wood won't warp after it's been glassed and epoxied).

I can do this.

more soon.

Maybe Steve can take pictures? I'd love to see!

Yay for progress!
