    as my granddad used to say ´A slow job is a job well done´ . Any one can just slap paint on , if your taking your time then your doing the job right.

    Anyway its a lot easier to do it now than when they are rigged and you spot that patch you missed that’s now 30 feet up in the air.

    Keep slogging away Neil, you’re almost there! I think it is amazing that you are now painting the mast directly beneath a boat of your own creation. Just think back to that huge expanse of empty barn you started in and enjoy the wonder that you have built with you own two hands. That is simple amazing ans awe-inspiring. And soon, you dreams will become a reality–fair winds and following seas, my friend.

    Was really amazing to make a last visit to the boat in the shed and think that next time I see it, it’ll be at Weir Quay!

    Thanks Spencer, I’m still too close to things to really appreciate what I’ve done yet. I guess that at some point this Summer, perhaps sitting on deck watching the sun go down, it’s going to hit me, it’ll be some hit!

    It was great to see you darling and it’ll be fantastic to have you as the first staying guest aboard ‘Gleda’!

    Hopefully by then you will be imbibing in a beverage or two, which will help to soften the blow somewhat!
