warning

I feel like this post should come with a warning, something like "not for the faint of heart". I'd like to say that the situation looks better in person, but it doesn't. These days its challenging for one person to get around Me Voy. Stick another body in there and things get dangerous.

It might be hard to imagine that one day soon we will be living here, and all the dust, scraps of wood, gooey materials, and tools will be either neatly put away in their designated compartments or just plain gone. But that vision, now imprinted  in my minds eye,  shines from beneath the surface of the chaos revealing an underlying order that is calm and reassuring.  Strangely,  I can laugh at this chaos now, seeing it for what it is, a temporary ripple on the surface of a deep and still lake.

However, as a favor to the outside observer, I have imposed my own order and labeled the various sections that are currently being developed.  So go ahead, jump in, the water is only chaotic on the surface.

Wow, I had to look away as soon as I saw the first pic. :) You both are very brave. The good news is, when it is all done, you will have the perfect cruiser. A worthy task, to say the least. Keep it up.

That is good news! She is going to be a beauty, already is, underneath. I know soon, we are going to be asking ourselves (again) soon if this is really our boat.
