Day Seven... "there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.”
After a well earned break over the Easter weekend we were back at it today. The most notable change you will see is the change in venue. The boat has migrated from Mr Alp's workshop in the basement to his garage. You may see that 'our' boat has some company with a second boat that Mr Alp is building for his daughter. It's nice to see what a finished (or almost finished) boat looks like. We started the day with some terrific excitement when Riley cut his finger pretty deeply with a chisel. Scouter Larry whisked Riley off to the hospital for a few stitches while the rest of us mopped up blood....okay it wasn't that bad...but Riley you can now say that you've put blood and sweat into the boat! Fortunately the cut was not too deep and Riley will be back to build again soon. Today we cleaned up the deck rails, installed the shroud blocks as well as the floor battens.
