1879.5 Hrs – Cracking Day
I arrived at the barn at 8 this morning expecting to be doing a days work but not on the boat. As it turned out that plan changed and I ended up putting in a really solid 8 hours on Gleda. I was pleased as the last week has been somewhat manic and I was afraid things were slipping again.
The weather has been fantastic today, bright sunshine and a very pleasant 16’C. Not bad at all for mid March, this served to lighten the mood even more and I thoroughly enjoyed the work, so much so that the time flew past.
I spent a few hours glassing joints then set to with the sander again and finished prepping all the main joint areas with the exception of the cabin tops. I’m now well placed to really crack on with the glassing without interruption. The only slight mishap of the day came when I came to swop over my epoxy drums. As I was lifting the new 33kg keg into the epoxy warmer I realised that the tap was open and that I had neat epoxy running down the leg of my overalls. Luckily I managed to stem the flow quite quickly and salvage some of the spillage back into a pot. I was more concerned about the cost than the mess!
