734Hrs – Idling
For some reason I seem to be struggling to be productive at the moment. Time at the build seems to be spent with head and hands ‘hopping’ from one place to another without really achieving anything. I need to get a grip, work out an ordered task list and then crack on and follow it. I think part of the reason is some dithering about the cabin layouts. The comments from Jacques and Adrian about the en-suite shower and toilet re-awakened some niggly doubts that I’d had in the past when thinking about the layouts. If I was just going to live aboard in tropical climes I would have no hesitation in doing away with the en-suite facilities but it is highly likely that I will be living aboard in the UK for a few years and I know from previous experience that the larger en-suite option will make life a lot more comfortable. The issues about smells and dampness are I believe, solvable with the right ventilation and provision for a decent solid door between the two areas. Then again will I regret not enduring a bit of discomfort for a few years when I take off to the sun indefinitely? Or maybe I will decide to explore North for a while! See what I mean! I’m going to poll opinions on the Multihull Forum and ponder some more while I concentrate on other jobs that need doing first anyway e.g. proper fixing of the hullside stringers and more filleting but I will make a final decision before next week. If I make the wrong choice Gleda will just end up having a very early re-fit!
