Another great week on the Seeker.
Jonah is a great intern. Keeps his focus, is sharp and anticipates well.
Today we started the Starboard Forward outer planking on the raised fo’c’sle. IT went well. The paint that Ralph Packer donated has settled over time so that when I pour off the liquid, the paint below is the perfect paste for bedding between the planks.
It’s satisfying to see the beautiful lines emerge as the planking lines run parallel to the sheer line. Take my word for it, it’s pretty.
Working in the rain wasn’t a problem as the wind wasn’t strong enough to get us on the lee. Just a little damp now and then.
Looking forward to finishing the section tomorrow. Then on and on.
Launiching date isn’t going to wait.
