I have it from a venerable source - i.e. Ed Harrow - that legions of New England boat builders are spinning in their graves at the thought of taping off a bilge.
But frankly I'm glad they got loosened up because they'll be doing cartwheels when they get a hold of the news that I rolled and tipped the bilge today
Actually, I was running out of paint at the end and there's three more frame bays to do. That will bring me to right below the companionway. I'll go back and do that tomorrow and touch up any spots I missed.
I had a nice lunch break, but by mid-afternoon I had had exactly enough of breathing through the respirator and balancing on my hands and knees...
As Scarlett O'Hara would say, "Tomorrow is another day."
