With me working, we've been making slow, but hopefully sure, progress on "Tesla's Revenge". We're continuing to stain and seal the beams for the new deckhouse. If you're wondering why the text heavy posts lately, the marina has been experiencing some bandwidth problems with our WiFi (as in, I think the router is failing) which has made uploads a long and occasionally iffy process.
We've also done some stuff to correct some of the more bizarre features of the Cal 229 hull. The worst of these sins is that the forward V berth has ZERO ventilation. No ports, no vents, no hatches, no little air scoops, nada, nunca, nichts, nuttin. The trouble is, anything we could install would get in the way of the tiny bit of flat deck space we have, so I tried an expedient.
|IThe large aft hatch is actually in the head. The smaller, forward one is actually in the chain locker.|
Okay, odd, wanky, and not exactly to code, but it works.
We proceed. This next week I'm hoping to get the mast pulled and the wheelhouse built.
hey, more stuff at life, art, water.
