3873Hrs – Doing All I Can
That’s the theme right now as time ticks away and the pressure starts to ramp up. I had trouble sleeping last night as my brain fizzed with thoughts of moving out of our rental cottage, lists of stuff to buy at Beaulieu, getting ‘Gleda’ out of the barn, all the jobs left to do before I leave, the journey down to the coast, re-assembling the boat, moving on board, launching, will Gail be OK, do I have enough money……… It’s all a bit intense.
At the same time though I’m super excited, I know that all these stresses are just my lizard brain resisting change, and it’s me that’s instigated the changes! I’ve just got to take each day as it comes, doing all I can. In a few months things will be a lot simpler and we can start to build the new life that this project has been all about.
My lack of sleep left me struggling a bit today but I still made some progress. I got the water tank in place and fitted a transparent watertight inspection hatch in the bulkhead between the main cabin and the toilet compartment. I can’t run to a sender and gauge for the water tank so this hatch will allow me to visually check the level from the toilet compartment without having to lift the bed mattress and tank compartment lid.
I also cut and fitted some more ply to box in the filler and breather pipes where they exit the deckhead above the berth. Other than that it was epoxy filleting, plenty more of that to come tomorrow.
