Fear and Anxiety

Post by Bill Edmundson » Wed Apr 23, 2008 7:16 pm

Did I get the Amine off between coats? Stainless, aluminum or chrome?

So, many choices. After I have committed, one of you comes in and says never do that or finds something that I wanted to use. But, I didn't find it.

WHAT scares you? :oops:

What scares me?

Lots of things, but I guess the biggest is rigging and starting my engine.

What the heck is amine :shock: ......just kidding.

My fear is if the dang thing stays together with my family and that powerful 315 HP motor I just bought. We'll probably wear life jackets the first year.

My fear is hitting a slightly submerged log and destroying the bottom. People do not have any consideration on this lake with cutting trees and letting them float. Not my problem - they think.

I wish I had used 3/8 in ply for the bottom and then went with 1/4 on the sides. It at least would take more abuse.

I think you with the inboards have twice the work as the outboards. A lot more work!

I've stretched this build out inteminably, it seems. I was beginning to wonder if I had a fear of finishing :? But along the way I had fears of spending too much, making a construction error, or cutting a piece of expensive wood wrong. I got desensitized to those a long time ago.

Now I have a lot of anxiety (and I'm having a hard time getting over this one) of cutting a hole in the bottom of the boat for the depth gauge sender.

My fear is procrastinating & not getting the boat done(or even to a point to bring it) in time for the gathering.

The move & getting the house in order is over now,so I should be able to start on the boat soon :roll: 8)

I had a feeling this one would run. :)

At one time or another (and now) :? , I have had every one of these concerns. :( :oops: Well, except that 315 thing. :wink:

After finally getting all those stupid holes in the bottom plugged. I've got to cut a bunch more holes in there for the new engine.
Then there's mechanicals!

I forgot about the depth finder and finished the bottom. The depth transducer is still laying in the bottom of the boat, uninstalled. I hate it, but it will be hung off the transom.
