Rather than continue to add picts, which can take a long time to download for those of us on phone lines, I'm just going to keep replacing the picture and adding new notes weekly. I'm going to create a file on Photopoint just for these weekly picts, for those who wish to look back and see if they can detect the change. If I really get my act together I'll create a website.
Still running into dead ends attempting to find an inside storage location for the mast. Those who are willing are too short (once by mere inches), others who may have the required length feel they are full up. Also still puzzling on the shelter bit. I thought the bow-roof design made with strapping would do the job, but I'm seeing some limitations, and my call to Dave Stimson has not been returned, so I'm looking more to the PVC hoop idea, but I'm concerned about it's ability to carry snow loads...
I'm starting to shop for major timbers (keel and sternpost for certain). I guess next on the agenda (in addition to the cover) is to continue to empty her out, which requires that I have a suitable storage area (read that build one) and continue efforts to find long-term storage for the mast.
Back to work next week, tho on Friday I think I am going to the Lawley shin dig.
