The weather's been holding me up lately, but I thought you might like to
see these shots taken today in yet more rain. I've got some touching up to
do, and all of the varnish, and I've still got the rowlocks to fit, and
I've got to make a rig and rudder, but I think you'll see she's well on
the way to something pretty good. I'm hoping with my pal Jim's help to be
able to launch her quite soon in rowing trim - he's got a road trailer and
a share of a private lake. 'Course, I should mention this to Jim...
For myself, I'm in a terrible quandary: I'd hoped to be able to cartop
this boat as it's well within the weight range, but looking at it now I
think that will require some ingenuity. What should I ask for for
Christmas? A trailer? Or a Fender electric mandolin?
