It Really Wasn't a Nice Day, Really
The other day I as at the local waterfront coffee shop. It was a typical NW winter day. Cool, gray, rainy. No wind to speak of. I overheard the guy in front of me say that he was about to meet his friends to go sailing. I have to admit, my soul stirred...sailing, yes, sailing. But then I looked at look at the weather. It wasn't a nice day, it really wasn't. This guy had to be nuts. Sailing? In the rain? With no wind? But, still....mmm...sailing. I couldn't help but wonder if maybe I am a wimp after all.
In other news, things are happening in the shop again! I have done some touchup epoxy work and have started applying more coats of varnish to the spars. I also got the outboard running again. When the weather gets nicer or I become less wimpy, I may have a properly finished boat ready and waiting.
