I’m starting to settle back into the routine. I have resurrected my method of ensuring I get some boat work done in the evenings. No matter how stressed and tired I might be when I get home from work, I come straight through the door, change into my scruffs, pick up what I need and go straight out to the barn. If I sit down, make a drink, switch on the computer or look at the mail I am entirely likely to get sidetracked and end up not going!
I used the IN-OUT method tonight and got another good painting session in. I should get it finished tomorrow. I then need to epoxy coat and paint the underside of the deck stringers and start working on the deck sections. I’m starting to research deck hatches for these aft compartments as I’d really like to fit these sooner rather than later. I need a good large solid hatch for the port one to allow easy access for gas bottles and larger items whilst on the starboard side I want a glass one with easy opening for ventilation above the single berth. On that subject I also need to look at ventilators. I’d be interested to get some words of advice from anyone out there.
I think I am going to have a long shopping list for the Beaulieu Boat Jumble in a few months!
