1288Hrs- Plugging Away
The bulk of yesterday was spent in meeting and talking with people within my work world as part of my continued efforts to land another job. Continuing with a challenging, interesting and decently paid job that allows me to make best use my particular skills and experience is my preferred choice and the one that makes the most sense for survival of the project. If I can’t make it happen then I’ll have to find another way but it will make things a lot harder… we’ll have to see. For now I’m going to do all I can and stay positive.
After a morning of doing a number of mundane but necessary personal admin chores I was pleased to get back to the boat this afternoon. The weather is still cold with Tuesdays snow still lying around and although the temperatures have picked up a few degrees a chilly NE wind makes it feel bitter. Given the conditions I didn’t think epoxy work was the best thing to do so I turned to some woodworking instead, My laminated timber had set well enough to be cut so out came the circular saw and jig saw and a couple of hours later I had two nicely cut aft deck support beams roughly in position. I spent a bit more time with the drawings and then cut the longitudinal deck bearers as well. I finished off by laminating up another set of timbers ready for the other hull. The photo shows the two bearers roughly in place in what will be the port hull gas/storage locker.
