OK, I get it. Almost done writing-up Saturday's work. Sunday was another marathon session -- I actually wire brushed off old silicone, added gel coat where it was needed (2 coats), sanded, cleaned with acetone, drilled silicone out from holes, counter sunk, used a ton of butyl tape and tried to do it right. In the middle of it, I decided to rebed the hawspipe too, so repeat the above steps a bit. The I put the windlass back on.

Not sure I'll get to Mondays work tonight. Back to this write-up...

Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!
