I visited the 30 sq today .
Peter wanted some progress photos for the owner in J.O.E.
So I had this dilemma. Work v look at boat.
Gee ,that took some thinking.
this boat will be finished in 5 or 6 months.
I'll update from time to time.

Finished in 5 or 6 months? All of a sudden I'm sitting here, slumped of shoulder, sad of eye, wondering why it's taken me 10 years and I still have a big hole in the bottom. I don't remember what it felt like to sail mine.

Hang in there Rich! We're all pulling for you.

Rich. don't be despondent. you could always pay a guy like Peter the price of a small house to fix your problem and go sailing fast too. He's boatbuilder working for pay. He's only been working seriously on it for 2 weeks now and it has to be ready for our big regatta in Feb. I gazed with barely concealed awe at a stack of teak/iroko/mahogany and another of spruce for the 2 boats he's doing. " about 20 grand there and um about 20 grand there too come to think of it" that was just some wood!

Ah John, I don't know about Ed and Rich, but Dave and I ARE spending the price of a small house and still getting nowhere fast.
What happened to that thread with the boat being built in Thailand - five shipwrights and their extended families living in tents around the hull??? Ed was worried about his neighbors complaining about the campfires, but surely we could work out the details and get these boats back together and in the water :D

You're doing a grand job and that's a great site you have Margot.
And Rich, what a setback you had. a heartbreaker for sure. Just keep on keeping on though eh. You guys , Ed and the Hedgers are inspirational.
