Yesterday I had that "one good day" of boatbuilding I wanted and made some great progress on the Pygmy. Soon she'll be done and Pocketship construction will begin.
One of the advantages of having built a few boats before is that you find that you have a lot of clamps.
I have on the order of 50 clamps in use here....and what's worse, if I had 20 more, I could have used them all! These clamps, and possible many more will be put to work on PocketShip
Also yesterday, I made my first PocketShip-specific purchase: a cheap pair of welding gloves to use when pouring the lead into the keel.
