1121Hrs – Home Maker
Something really strange is happening, all I’m doing is adding a few more sheets of plywood to the many that I’ve already put in place, Just another step on the long long road to a completed boat but….. more than any other stage so far , the effect of fixing these sheets is out of all proportion to the effort involved. For the first time I really feel like I am creating living space, enclosed, real, and beautiful. Gleda will be my home for many years to come and only now, for the first time, can I really see what that means. I fitted another two panels tonight and enclosed the main cabin sections aft of the double berth. I was able to sit where I envisage the chart table will be and look down the cabin into the berth. It’s just plywood, softwood and epoxy but they are coming together to create something much much greater than mere building materials. Now I am really starting to feel that Gleda is coming alive and that soon she will be able to give me shelter, safety and comfort, to give me the place of my own that I so desperately want. Nothing can stop me .
