Wednesday, May 7th

I did not bother to take photos as there is not too much difference to see. I got the cockpit sanded and put on the first coat of color. Also sanded the exterior first prime coat and put on the second coat.

Drilled and countersunk holes for seat screws in both seats. Three hard hours. Covered up for potential rain showers tomorrow afternoon. This will be the 7th weekend in a row with at least one full day of rain!

Came across this quote by Henry Hazlitt which suits me to a “T”.

“Will-Power, then, may be defined as the ability to keep a remote desire so vividly in mind that immediate desires which interfere with it are not gratified.”

(Like food, sleep, work, wife, lawn mowing, house maintenance, etc!)

Hard to improve on that!

    Awk! I am aghast that there are no photos 🙂 I mean, thousands of us — OK, perhaps a coupla dozen — are clamoring for pictures of your Maroon-colored vessel.

    Mississippi State Fan,

    PS ‘scuse the sarcasm …. I haven’t had breakfast. Do you have to start from scratch on the sail rig? Looks like you have some fun days ahead.

    Hey Kent, good to hear from you. Plenty (possibly too many) pics in previous entries.

    Every thing is from scratch as far as the rig is concerned. Lits of splicing and laminating to do. Sail is a Sailrite Kit. Decided to get a “real” one for the first time at age 60 instead of making it from polytarp!

    Thanks for the comment.

    PS Note the new hit counter-almost 4000!
