Hi Bill!
Yup, life has been busy. Quit one job started another...now I am a state employee...damn I have never worked so little in my entire life! haahahahaha. But kept part of the other job so I average about 65 hours a week. Hope to be able to slow down in a few years. But you know how that goes!
Haven't been on here in a spell but hope to start keeping up better. Your build is looking good!

For me building the hull was the easy part as the plans provided the guidance and it seems Part A connects to Part B and they connect to Part C. Once rolled all bets are off. There is a million things that can be done and need to be sorted out.

AND I can tell you this - after you spend the first night hanging on the hook in a quiet spot while ignoring everything else in the world, you will forget all the headaches and heartaches of the build. They suddenly seem a small price to pay for pleasure your new creation will provide. Sure has worked that way for me.
Ray, the last part of that comment is SO correct.
In several years since the first splash, I never really got in some good fishing. All that changed last week. I got out with a buddy, trolling 5 lines spread, and the action was HOT. 2 of us in the boat with a triple hook-up!!!!
Barracuda, Mackerel, Bonita, Kings, and Tuna to boot. Too bad a shark got the best of the Tuna tho.
You're right, all the headaches & heartaches seemed to go away.
Oak is over rated, everything about it takes extra time; then it warps, splits or checks !!! :roll:

As one that is just getting started thanks Bill and All... I know I have a long road ahead just like when I built a SquareCraft Caviler 102.5 aircraft. With help from all of you I know its is possible... even today when I was outside with transit and it was 92 degrees thanks for all the inspiration TO YOU ALL.

Bill, On one-hand I feel your pain, but on the other hand, aren't you retired.

Yes I retired! It's GOOD! I'm finally seeing some progress after lots of sanding, fairing and painting.

I'm starting the V-Berth, some wiring and some decking. The cash flow really hurts!

Bill,

It seems that when I took the time to concentrate on the boat, also retired, monthly purchases went way up, to the point the wife started noticing all the boxes coming from vendors all over the country. Prior to that, I was able to go virtually unnoticed. Working on a boat over a couple to few years can help with the relationships, but isn't conducive to getting it done .

I attempted to remind her that if we bought all of our groceries at one time for the entire year, those costs would also look very high. Apparently that wasn't a satisfactory remark. as, then the fight started. :(

Still healing, but also though the argument was sound. :?

Bill,

Nicely done: " It's your fault honey"

I will try that next.

It will all be forgotten when I take her out for an cruise in our new boat.

Bill, you can call me if you need someone to watch you move stuff around. :lol:

I still have some long PVC pipes that belong to somebody at G-4. Should I bring them to this gathering?
I forgot what they were for, and I still don't know how I wound up with them.
Is anybody missing them?
