2954Hrs – Another Long Job Continues
Once again I’ve been surprised how I continually seem to underestimate the time needed to complete some of the build stages. I realised today that it was nearly 100 work hours ago that I started on the deckpod. Not all of that time has been spent on the pod but I reckon something like 75 hours has, and there’s still a lot to do.
I know that in part it’s been a longer job because I went off plan but none the less I still hadn’t anticipated it would take so long. It’s ridiculous really, I should have learned this lesson long ago. It doesn’t really matter, it takes what it takes, but I guess I’m just more conscious of it because of my focus on completion, something that didn’t enter my head for most of the years I’ve been building.
Anyway more progress today, the forward cabin sanded, primed and first coat of white applied.
The aft section glass reinforced and filled and finally the framework for a small corner seat glued in place. This was a bit of an after though as I pondered how to brace the pod side, I figured I may as well make the bracing useful and another seat seemed a good idea.
Heatwave continues 30˚C again today, officially the longest period of high temperatures since 2006, which funnily enough was the year I bought my plans.
