Re: switters ongoing build thread
I have been spending time in the boat shop, but have not been taking many pictures. mainly due to the fact that I wasn't taking very good ones. But on a recent cross country road trip with my #2 son I found out that I can actually focus the camera on my phone.
And so, I have been piddling around with the puffer parts but that isn't done yet. Still finishing up the ex-fiances boat shown above but I should be done with it by sat night, I will let her do the spar varnish.
And I changed my mind again about which boat is next. drift boat for Oregon, I'm keeping the summer breeze here in Colorado. Some great freinds just gave me the book Drift Boats and River Dories, by Fletcher. I suspect things will be going much smoother with the new table say also, that has been slowing me down and not making me want to rip anything.
I also had a side project that involved gel-coat and pool slide repair, that was interesting. And I get the left over gel-coat for the puffer repairs. Somewhere along the way I got reacquainted with a love of bicycles and that hasn't helped either as I have dedicated one bench to messing with old headlamps and bottle generators.
And so it goes..
In fact, if you can saw a penciled line, apply glue, drive nails, and bring a modest measure of patience to the task, you can build and launch a smart and able craft in as few as 40 work hours. You need not be driven by lack of tools, materials, skills, or time to abandon in frustration a project you conceived in a spirit of pleasurable anticipation.
