2423Hrs – Man Flu Strikes!
It’s a wonder I can type this, as every guy knows man flu is a killer and yet I’m somehow managing to soldier on. With such deep reserves of strength and determination I could have joined the S.A.S, I’d have pissed the selection… ah well too old now.
On the boatbuilding front I’ve put in a solid six hours today working on the cross beams. I’ve planed and sanded them on all sides and routed a nice radius on all the edges top and bottom. It didn’t go completely smoothly as both the 4″ sander and the plane packed up on me during the work and although I got the plane going again I had to call up my smaller reserve sander which slowed things down a bit.
Anyway the jobs done now and tomorrow I’ll get cracking on the infill pieces. There are 12 per beam on the three longest beams and another six on the mast beam. They need to be cut to size individually and then epoxied into place so that’s me busy for a wee while.
Its pleasing how a bit of finishing has transformed the beams from messy epoxy covered bits of wood to something that looks half decent.
