Skin Boat Part 2
Part 1 - Part 3 - Part 4 - Part 5
Hotter'n-L today, also extremely
humid. The storm passed to the south so I got the rest of the
stringers on. Kinda disappointed at the weight...13.63 pounds.
Don't fret....Kaye went to town
with one of our neighbor ladies so it was safe to sneak her
scale out. Had to take another heart pill! ...well...some how,
or some way it got a little damn glue on it! I wiped it clean!
All clear! Mission accomplished! I"m probably going to
use a very light material on deck and the heavier tougher stuff
on the bottom and sides. Still have a lot of sanding, trimming
and planing to do but not today.
Gotta wait for the glue to cure,
so I'm grabbing the blue skinboat and taking off. I'll leave
Kaye a note so she won't flip out...as more storms might pop
up this afternoon and ....she knows that! Hmmmmmm...I ain't
never had the skinboat in a storm! I think it's a terrific time
to go paddling! Might even have some waves to play in! Good
thunderstorms only last 20 or 30 minutes so you've got to be
ready and work fast!
Course, Kaye ain't never liked
thunderstorms, and for sure... she shore as hell don't like
me out in 'em in a boat of any kind! At least she don't crawl
under the bed, the covers or something when a big clap of thunder
almost breaks the windows like the dogs do,.....I dont think!
But come to think of it she did disappear one time when she
thought a tornado was on the way! Never did find out where she
went! Mighta been under the bed with the Tarbaby, Savannah and
Cuddles! I just looked out the window and the sky is black and
coming from the west! Gotta go! Hope I git back afore she does!
