1302Hrs- Making Work
Mindset is everything right now, in past years pressures such as the ones I’m experiencing at the moment would have caused me to break down, those days are gone. All these problems are but minor irritations. If I couldn’t cope with these then there’d be no point continuing because they will pale into insignificance when compared to situations and circumstances I will be inevitably be faced with when I start sailing Gleda over the horizon. Thanks again for the supportive comments but don’t worry , all will be well! (Jacques, can you send me your e-mail address again please, I wanted to reply to you seperately but your earthlink mail bounced).
It was lucky I was feeling positive when I got to the barn this morning because the fillets I did on Friday were absolute crap. Despite using a thickened mix they had slumped in places and, in my rush to finish them I had overdone the brushing with rubbing alcohol which had resulted in wrinkling and running. I paid the price with hours of sanding to get them back to somewhere near acceptable. I know all the theory and I’ve made decent fillets before so I’ll just have to take more care in future. The rest of the day was spent working the laminated deck stringer supports. I’ve got these ready to fix now. Apologies again for lack of piccys, I’m waiting to see if my laptop is repairable and my backup machine doesn’t have enough memory for photos.
