Wednesday, May 14th

Got the hatches cut and framed up. Openings will be 14″ by 24″. Yes Mr. Michalak, I made then 2″ bigger, a pet peeve of yours, but I am going to do a “Proper” hatch combing to minimize leakage. Shown weighted down to dry flat on floor.

Also got the mast rough-sanded down; staggered splices shown in some photos.

Here is the Mizzen mast partner that  will mount on motor well starboard side. Hole for mast not done yet.

I also spliced the 6″ extensions onto the boom planks. If only it were 12′ and not 12′ 6″! One board would do it. Same situation for mizzen mast, but I haven’t gotten to that yet.

Trade Marked Pile-0-Rocks weighted splices!

Rain tonight and tomorrow, but clear Friday and through the weekend! First one in 7 weeks without rain! Need to get much done…
