Friday was a long one. Here’s Jeanne doing a heroic cleanup, including going after four years of dust under vee-berth
So we were feeling good at 7pm, and then came the daggerboard fitting. Remember this has never happened because it was too tall inside the shop. … Damn, the trunk is slightly shorter at the top and bottom four inches based on how Howard did his glassing work (hull builder) and we didn’t talk about that. I built the dagger to exact plans. It sticks and wouldn’t clear the foil shape slot thru the hull :(
9pm emergency surgery to cut 5/8″ off the trailing edge. Michael Metela next door is the second hero of the day (Nameless Tractor Guy was first )
The boys hauled it back on deck, and it slid home just fine. That left the boat builder a late night of glassing – vac bagging. At least it made it easy to roll in to the rack at 1:45am as the night watchman.
Ok, 7am Saturday now and a huge forklift / Gradall comes at 9 to help get the boat on the trailer. Stay tuned.
