Winter project

This is what we have been doing every weekend. The end is in sight, we expect to launch sometime in May. Of course everything has gone exactly according to plan and hasn't cost a dime over what we planned and it hasn't taken any longer than we expected. We started removing deck hardware just after Christmas and have been hard at it every weekend except one since then. The hull ended up needing to be peeled which we really didn't anticipate since it had been barrier coated previously (bad job). Taking the teak decks off took 2 1/2 weekends for the two of us. Potting all the deck holes took awhile and there have been quite a few suprises since it is a new boat for us and we hadn't been through it except for the survey and getting it ready to ship from Honolulu to Anacortes (Seattle area). Overall we are very impressed with the boat and can't wait for it to go into the water, but it will be kind of weird having it actually move under us after all this time on the hard. Here are some pics.

Nice job, John... and a nice looking boat too!

Well worth the effort.

A bad day on a boat beats a good day in the office

When I was a young man I loved the look of teak decks. Now that I'm a little older and, hopefully, wiser I love the look of decks that have the teak ripped out!! Working on a boat can be as much fun as sailing, if done right.

Very nice... looks like you're doing it right... which is usually cheaper than taking the shortcuts over the long run.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
