787Hrs – Low Ebb
I don’t know why but I am finding everything really hard going at the moment. I seem out of sorts, lacking motivation, dull of mind and clumsy with it. The weather is lousy as well with strong cold winds and rain forecast for the week. I’ve tried to discipline myself to work methodically and logically and to that end have started working my way through each hull compartment to bring them all up to the stage where they will be ready for painting. This involves coating any remaining bare wood, filling gaps and screw holes, filleting, sanding down, vacuuming out and then wiping with acetone. I have decided that there will be no permanently sealed, inaccessible areas on Gleda. I will paint them all bright white for improved visibility and fit small round watertight access hatches to allow for easy inspection. I have already got some rubberised waterproof paint on the way courtesy of a friendly paint specialist and I am shopping around for the hatches.
