Making Progress

So spent the last couple of unseasonably warm and beautiful days working on the hull of the sailboat, fiberglassing over the disused thru-hulls and filling in some of the damage an incompetent soda blaster did to the poor hull.  The boat is a mess, but it will do beautifully to let us try out the electrical and drive systems. 

Have I mentioned that I absolutely suck at fiberglass?
So we'll finish doing the fill-in stuff tomorrow, then it's three coats of barrier coat (an epoxy sealant) and two of anti-fouling paint, then we can splash her.

Then the fun REALLY begins.

More shortly, and new stuff at Life, Art, Water.
