Grâce à Roux Olivier à nouveau pour ses tentatives (en vain) de livre une kyrielle de l'éducation dans mon faible cerveau. (Thanks to Roux Olivier for his attempts (in vain) to pound a smattering of education into my feeble brain.) These translation websites are close enough (how would I know? My French is terrible!). I wonder if my obscure vague references come through the translation. I wonder if my obscure vague references come through to Anglophones. Budgetboater was off for the week and Ben still was gone. Monday was cold. I built a small shelf for the house. Tuesday was a so-so day, a bit cold, a bit laziness, a bit of work. Wednesday I went back to the motor wells. I made extra cross bracing to combat the torque of the motors. I sanded the interiors. This consisted of a repetitive operation of sand, pull a splinter out, sand, pull a splinter out........................... I glued in the cross braces.
Remember last week.................oh hell, I can't remember yesterday. Anyway, I was talking about the motor well transoms and how I told Budge to turn them around and he did and they were wrong?
Note: the left side too short, the right side too tall. If they were turned around, they would be perfect. So this week consisted of cut the cross bracing; glue them in.
Wait a day. Coat the interiors and fillet the corners (where's Ben- he is good at this). Wait a day. Scuff sand the interiors. Coat the interiors and let the epoxy tack up and apply paint over the epoxy. I am on the third coat of paint. Those cross braces sure were in the way. Whose idea was that? that's two coats of epoxy and three coats of paint!
I made an attempt to cut the stainless steel bar stock for the mast supports. Metal cutting blade in the jigsaw burned. Carbide grinding jigsaw blade clogged up. I guess I have to dig out the die grinder or die trying; the die is cast,..................... back to my diet..................
The son of Stan Rogers singing Stan's song differently than his dad. I suggest you listen to Stan's version and compare. Oh hell, here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P5RKhjGCmZw
