Between getting L.M ready for winter, Me Voy ready for launch, Chopper's stubborn eye infection, working jobs, revamping my website, and just living, well...phew!
Our ride to Me Voy is 1 1/2 hrs, this is the Bay bridge over the Chesapeake
Me Voy is in a state of Deep Chaos as Travis works on wiring
I being painting the mast
We had to flip the mast over, which wasn't as hard as it sounded, but look how flexible the mast is. It looks like its bent in this pic.
The varnish on the mast was beautiful, but too much to keep up with, and it would have needed many more coats, so we made this scallop which is going to be right at the boom. I think this is going to looks so sharp!
Chopper Fit! And here we go back over the bridge to Baltimore.
Now back on Lucy Maru this is the last of the rotten deck to be replaced
Plywood going in
It looks like magic in picture but this was hours of work. And, even though it looks like T is doing all the work, well for some reason all the pics of me cutting, grinding, sanding, epoxing were filled with blinding light. I know I wasn't having that good of a time!
Deck before primer
Deck primered, Chopper approves
Check out our cool roll up willow shades. I love them. This aft deck still needs to get doors and a railing and canvas. You can't really see in this pic, but that's our industrial singer sewing machine, ready to go. We got it for free, from this seamstress, all we had to do was carry it up three flights of stairs, since she sewed in the basement. It was so worth it. (T did have the heavy end)
Sanded and faired deck house
Primered deck house with winter canvas
And there we float...
So yeah, I'm beat. Now a walk with the dog, a Hollywood shower and a cheesy chick flick.
Very un-Halloween like, but really, do you think I a care?
