It's October Already

So October is halfway over and we are still working on our Summer project. To be honest I kinda expected this to happen because it rains here more days than it doesn't. Since the weather has been so uncooperative we took on a lot of additional projects that could be completed under a tent or inside the workshop. It's important to me that we keep doing those little side projects so that we keep the momentum moving forward. I am getting the itch to be out on the water pretty badly but it will all be worth it in the end.

Things completed so far:

9 Thru hulls replaced
2 Thru hulls plugged permanently
2 Strops fabricated
1 Windvane acquired & refinished
1 Wind generator acquired
Removed, cleaned, and painted grey water tank
Removed, cleaned, and painted diesel tank
Spinpole refinished, ends re-bedded
Back stay chain plate replaced
Stripped and refinished transom
Cabin settee cushion foam replaced
New cabin curtains 
Safety harness strap fabricated and installed in galley

Structural Repairs:
Hull stripped and sanded
2 full frame replacements
7 Dutchman/scarf frame repairs


I am sure there are other things that we have done that I am not thinking of but this gives you an idea of what we have been doing...

...Did I mention I am ready to be finished. Arg.
