1418.5Hrs – The Cycle
It’s a inescapable fact, as true to boat building as it is in so many other things. It is impossible to get the reward without putting in the effort. I get a real kick from making really visible things happen on the boat. Most recently it was getting these small stern deck sections fitted. A small step, but one that had a greater significance for me as it was the first time I’d enclosed space aboard. Now I have to pay the price and work towards the next ‘kick’. My work for the next week at least will consist of sanding and shaping the exterior of these new decks and then filleting and painting the undersides, working in my newly created cramped space. It’s doubly hard to get motivated and out the door for an evening work session when the work involved is not particularly interesting. It has to be done though and I know that the ‘kicks’ will just keep coming. The photo shows the port hull deck section I sanded tonight.
