964Hrs – Dark Clouds On The Horizon
I can’t go into detail but I believe that a major change in my life is looming. I am extremely concerned that this change could have a huge negative impact on the build but it’s largely beyond my control. I knew when I started the project that the biggest danger was not from me but from others and that’s the way its turning out. All I know is that Gleda is one of the most important things in my life and I must find a way to keep going, she represents all my hopes and dreams and I can’t imagine life without her. I’m sorry to sound melodramatic but tonight that’s how I feel. Events this week may prove to be my biggest challenge yet.
Despite my worries…… or was it because of them? I put in another couple of hours tonight and finished off the sail locker floor. I glassed the forward and aft ends of the floor to the bulkheads, took out all the temporary screws and filled the holes, then finished off the filleting.
The next things on my list are gluing the upper stringers together, final squaring and levelling of the hulls and fixing of the upper bulkheads.
